No: Jaw pain itself would not cause extra saliva, but do to the saliva glands around your jaw being the problem you may be having pain. You may have pain due to an mouth lesion such as an apthous ulcer. See your physician.

No: No but because of your jaw pain, you may not be swallowing as often, and the saliva accumulates. YOu may have a dental or TMJ problem See your dentist
