Excessive Salivation and Your New Dentures

Posted on 3/27/2016 by Sergio Ortegon
A pair of dentures floating inside a glass jar.One problem that denture wearers seem to share at some point in their experience with their appliance is excessive salivation. For most people, this is an issue that starts when they first start wearing dentures and eventually subsides.

In fact, this is a normal response, and it might even occur again periodically. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to get through these periods of excessive salivation.

What to Do When You Are Salivating Too Much with Dentures

If you are going through a period of excessive salivation with your dentures - whether you are a new denture wearer or have had them for a long time - the most important thing to remember is that you need to keep wearing your dentures for your body to adapt.

When dealing with unpleasant excessive salivation, this can sometimes be hard to do, but you should remember that this is normal. Never assume that salivating more than usual is the sign of a problem.

When dealing with excessive salivation, there are a few other tips that can help you through this time period:

•  Talk to someone who has been there. If you have a friend who also wears dentures, give him a call. He will probably tell you that he went through the same thing when he was getting used to his dentures.
•  Stay calm. If you have anxiety about this time period and are stressed out, it will only make it worse. Instead of thinking about dentures excessively, find ways to distract yourself and to keep your mind occupied.
•  Talk to your dentist. He can give you some helpful tips on dealing with the excessive saliva issue, and in extreme cases, medicines that can help to control saliva may be prescribed.

If you are concerned about the amount of saliva that you are producing with your new dentures, call our dental office for guidance.
