There are many: Possibilities. Certain medications can increase flow of saliva, but the list is short. Gi reflux is linked along with new (or even poor fitting) dentures. There are also some diseases that are attributed to this issue. Swallowing dysfunction can cause the perception of extra salivary flow. If you find this concern lasts more than a few days, consult w your pcp or your dentist.
