Plaque on teeth

My mon, 78, said that when she awakes, a film has developped on her teeth, her mouth is itchy and dry, she brushes her teeth and it happens again.

She said that it comes from her throat.

She had surgery for a broken tibia, they put a plate in her leg. Could it be from the surgery when they put a tube in the throat ?

She lives in a nursing home, she said that the nurse see her once a month and it has been 2 months that this going on.

i live 3000 miles away.

Any response would be appreciated.

Thank you
