Salivary Clinical Case 4
Too Much Saliva – Sialorrhoea
Mr X had long-standing problems with too much saliva. When he spoke this meant that he had a tendency to spit. This was very embarrassing and was affected his work and home life. It had reached the point where Mr X would avoid specific situations.
A specialist Oral Medicine opinion was asked for. This concluded that there was a genuine increased volume of saliva. Investigations did not identify any contributory factors. The treatment options were discussed. A treatment was found that suited Mr X and improved his situation.
