Drooling: Stay away from eating or smelling food that will increase salivation. Other than that, be patient! the medicine wears off after a few hours.

Possible: There is no natural way to stop drooling after getting numb, you just need to wait until numbness wears off. It is possible to take some medications prior dental appointment to reduce salivation but I do not recommend it.
