What is the reason for increased salivation?

Q: These days I produce a lot of saliva. Is there any specific reason for it?

A:Increased salivation can be caused by dental disease or by disorders of swallowing from neuromuscular disorders. Other causes are rare, and if the causation is not obvious it is best to regard the problem as simply an extreme variant to the normal range of function. Taking more simple and smaller more frequent meals and sucking on dry tasteless candies can help. Dry fiber foods or eating non-oil containing nuts could mop up the saliva. Do not forget that excessive, but unsatisfied sexual stimulation, such as looking at prurient magazines is also a potent stimulus that can induce drooling.
