Spraying saliva from mouth

I've recently started spraying saliva when I talk. I see people constantly wiping their faces and it's making me feel really uncomfortable. I have been to two dentists, neither of which has had any idea what it could be. The only thing that I can think of is that my teeth have moved slightly over the last few months and I now have a few gaps. Could this have anything to do with it? If it does, having braces or other expensive dental work is not really an option for me right now. I don't know that I actually have more saliva than usual in my mouth - just that I'm spraying it everywhere. Does anyone know what it could be and how I go about stopping it? Thanks so much.

  • It could be because the gaps may be agitating the salivary glands, and/or the gaps are expanding, and enzymes are somehow making your salivary gland pore open. But don't feel uncomfortable, it has happened to me sometimes, but I've seen people do something to their saliva in a way too disgusting way. So don't feel down, it's natural. :)

Thanks so much.lol normally i reply with at least 3000 words, but i can give you an answer in one.Normal.It's normal, hun. It's probably related to dry mouth or to mucosal swelling if you've noticed it happening more. Try gargling with baking soda or epison salt or something. It could be a clogged saliva gland, but I had one once and it usually gets better on its own, despite how much I freaked out over it. Chewing gum can help too, it makes the flow of saliva more constant and less snake-man random.fear not :cool:xoxo
