In brief: Many possibilities
Medications can do it, swallowing problems can cause what seems like an excess, salivary gland problems.
You should see an ENT doctor for an evaluation.

In brief: Water Brash
Water brash is probably the most common cause of excessive saliva; this is seen in people who suffer irritation of the stomach and esophagus as in gastritis; the irriation stimulates more saliva production to wash out the irritation.
Check with your doctor for treatment of possible problems in the stomach.
