Hello, Anon. Thank you for posting.

Too much saliva is usually not something to worry about unless it persists. It's normal to make more or less saliva depending on what you eat or drink. Your body usually takes care of excess saliva by swallowing more. 

If you have a lot of saliva all the time, tell your health-care provider. It could be the side effect of a medication or the result of a medical condition or disease.

If you have problems chewing your food and/or swallowing, you may feel like you have a lot of saliva in your mouth. This can also cause drooling.   Are your dentures new or ill-fitting? If so, see your dentist as this might be causing the increase in saliva.
