 increased salivation
 Increased salivation may be associated with digestive diseases, including oral cavity, various infectious and inflammatory and neurological processes, as well as tumors of the salivary glands. The main manifestation of this condition is to increase the secretion of saliva.


Reasons hypersalivation

Salivation is provided with three pairs of major salivary glands (parotid, submandibular and sublingual), as well as the small glands located in the mouth (labial, buccal, gingival, lingual and palatine). Saliva plays an important role in the processing and food intake and maintain a constant environment within the body.

Normally, a person stands up to 2 liters of saliva per day. In some diseases and conditions can increase the amount of saliva (hypersalivation).

Hypersalivation may cause any disease of the digestive system, infectious and inflammatory processes in the mouth and throat, Parkinson's disease, epidemic encephalitis, stroke, neuralgia Neuralgia - the scourge of the elderly  Neuralgia - the scourge of the elderly
   trigeminal pregnancy toxaemia and some other diseases and conditions.

Reasons hypersalivation adults are usually associated with digestive diseases and neurological disorders, and the reasons for the increased salivation in children - acute respiratory viral infections and chronic diseases of upper respiratory tract (tonsillitis, adenoiditis, sinusitis Sinusitis - when a puncture is required  Sinusitis - when a puncture is required
 , Otitis media). Increased salivation in children under one year is often the norm.

  • When benign and malignant tumors of the salivary glands increased salivation is one of the early signs.


Increased salivation in diseases of the mouth and throat

Increased salivation always accompanies infectious and inflammatory diseases of the mouth and throat - stomatitis, gingivitis, periodontitis, tonsillitis, acute respiratory viral infections. It is a defensive reaction of the body, allowing time to remove from the mouth of infectious agents and their toxins and decomposition products of tissue. Increased salivation in this case develops in response to mechanical stimulation of the nerve endings of the oral cavity.


Increased salivation in infants

The salivary glands begin to function in a child in the third month of life. This is manifested in the form of constant drooling, but salivation (ptyalism) in infants is not always a sign of increased salivation - a child has not learned to swallow saliva.
