This can be a troublesome issue. If you dry the saliva too much with an anticholinergic drug or botox you can also get cavities. I would suggest you work with the doctor to find the right solution for you, but to brush your remaining teeth frequently if you dry the saliva._________________Michael S. Okun, M.D.

People with dentures have excess saliva as dentures are foreign substances in the mouth and the mouth produces excess saliva as a reaction perhaps treating the dentures as food.
