Saliva production is a natural and important part of good oral health. We need it to help protect our teeth from cavities , breakdown food so our stomachs can digest them more easily, and fight off bad breath bacteria. But the team at our Lakeland dental office wants you to know that there is such a thing as producing too much saliva. We already know that saliva is beneficial for both our oral health and our digestive health. So it only makes sense that more of it can only mean good things. When someone produces too much saliva, also known as hypersalivation, it can not only be uncomfortable, but also embarrassing and perhaps even a that something else is going on.
Like many things related to our bodies, there is no one definite cause behind hypersalivation, and there could be a variety of explanations. When there is an active infection in the mouth, the body may try to fight it off by producing more and more saliva. All medications come paired with some sort of side effects. Excessive saliva production may be one of them. If you think this may be the cause of your mouth watering, do not stop any medications before talking with your doctor. One of the more serious, yet rare, causes of hypersalivation is poisoning.
Saliva production can go into overdrive following a bite from spider or reptile venom, eating poisonous mushrooms, or poisoning caused by mercury, or copper. Besides the more obvious s of hypersalivation such as drooling or spitting, other symptoms may include:. The best thing you can do is see a dentist to better understand the root cause as well as the best treatment option for you. We welcome you to schedule an appointment at our dental office in Lakeland.
