I got my bottom two wisdom teeth removed Wednesday. It's Sunday now and my mouth still fills up with saliva. It smells bad. It only stops when I eat then it continues. At night too I drool. I'm getting tired of having to get up and go to the sink and let it out since I can't spit. Why is this? How do i stop it? Is it normal?
Hi and welcome. I had mine out also and it is a big deal. The whole area has been bruised and basicly you have an injury. I believe your saliva gland is sensing the inflamation (inflammation) and is producing more to ease the inflamed area. Might not be a bad idea to call the dentist tomm and ask about this.
