Drooling a lot while awake :/

:iconho-ohlover:

So the past month I've been drooling, A LOT. And I'm not just talking about when I sleep (though I've started drooling when I sleep) I mean I'm drooling when I'm awake with my mouth closed! It'll just kinda seep out between my lips, and when I open my mouth it just comes right out like a waterfall, it's very embarrassing to be talking to someone and to have drool all of a sudden (and I mean sneak attack) pour out the side of your mouth. Also when talking I've been developing a large froth of spittle in the corners of my mouth and it's kinda happening my speech. I've tried the google but I only get results for babies and drooling while sleeping, and not during the day :drool:

Do you have more spaces between your teeth or is your jaw not in correct position?

My mom's a dental assistant. Some people need their jaw pushed back or forward due to if they sucked their thumb when they were little. That 'pushed' the jaw forward too much, leaving a 'buck teeth' look and able for saliva to get through.

Or spacing in teeth can too :)

Nope, got perfect teeth according to me dentist, but my lower jaw is a bit off center, but just by an itty bitty bit, and he told me not to worry about it. No gaps, and I never sucked my thumb when I was little-

Pregnant women have been known to drool an abnormal amount, sometimes to the point where it makes them sick. Uh, there really isn't a way to ask this without sounding like a freak, but is your saliva also thicker than usual? If so... maybe you should check yourself out haha.


You're probably not pregnant, as there are other symptoms you'd probably be aware of. Just throwing it out there.

Actually it's quite the opposite, it's quite runny, making it leak out quite quickly, I'm also on my period right now so that means I'm not preggos? Right?

Well, I'm not a doctor, but I would assume no haha. I have no guesses as to what's wrong then.

I drool quite a lot too (especially when I sleep) and I normally get it while I'm laughing loads or laying on top of my boyfriend while we cuddle. Fortunately for me, he doesn't mind my drooling in the slightest and thinks it's really cute XD

I've been sucking a lot of hard candy lately, and I've noticed my drooling has decreased greatly. Try buying some nice sweeties or gum :)

Hmm, well I do seem to drool a lot more when I'm cuddling with my boyfriend. But I've been going out with him for four years, and this drooling has started roughly 2-3 months ago :shrug:

Apparently, from my knowledge of watching some channel 4 progamme :lol:, we all produce quite a lot of salivia. Usually we just swallow all of it. Whatever produces saliva can be overactive in some people though which produces too much. Have you been to see a doctor about this? Sometimes the solution can be really simple. It might be worth it if the problem is embarrassing for you.

Also, make sure you're drinking enough water. :nod:

Wait wouldn't more water mean more saliva?

Don't quote me, but I believe by drinking more water your salivary glands start to slow down their production of saliva in the long run.

Did you just recently get braces or a pallet expander? Those make you drool a ton.

That could be the problem. Maybe ask a doctor about it?

Did you ask a dentist? They're more honed into that area of work. ;)

Also, they have those really cool suction things that you put in your mouth to suck out all the saliva. Not that that helps you in any way, but I was just throwing it out there. >_<

Grab me a sucker while you're there! :D

I've not heard of anything like this before and certainly if it's a medical issue you really need to be talking to a doctor, rather than us!
It's strange that you don't notice the fluid buildup in your mouth. :o Maybe you don't swallow enough through reflex. Anyway, yeah, see a doctor. :nod:

I actually did mention it to my doctor, she was baffled as well. I notice the fluid build up sometimes, like it likes to gather at the corners of my lips, and when I swallow it just doesn't want to go down/I think I get it all and *poof* mouth already filled it up and it's seeping out. Sometimes it froths up and likes to stay at the corner of my lips which is making my speech difficult for me as my tongue is constantly trying to move the spittle away so it doesn't pour out. But I do get a lot of sneak attack escapes when talking and eating (and I have in no way changed how I eat what I eat, I do eat with my mouth closed etc it just started like the flood gated randomly)

That's such an awkward problem. :(
I wouldn't suggest looking around too much online as excess salivation is a symptom of all sorts of horrible things such as Parkinson's disease and loads of types of poisoning... which I very much doubt you have! However, what I'd do is keep an eye out for any other symptoms you might have - if any - and try bringing it up with your doctor again if it doesn't stop.
Also, I hear that some women produce more saliva when pregnant; might this be a possibility? Just a thought - as I've said, I really know nothing about the issue. I do hope it gets better soon. :hug:

D: Pregnant? No wait, can't be, I've had my period recently and I've had this problem for two months now? Anyways, I didn't find anything about diseases and poisoning when I searched on Google, probably covered up by 'why does my baby drool' 'why do i drool when I sleep' etc but thanks for the help!

Saliva is produced as a food and mouth lubricant. It is produced more when you are enticed to eat. Such triggers can be yummy smells and colors. On the other hand people are capable of producing to much saliva

For a hasty solution I suggest soda crackers. They will absorb a lot of moisture.
