excess salivation and dental implants

As part of my dental implant process I had to wear a flipper (fake tooth) for approximately 10 months. As soon as the flipper was inserted I started to salivate excessively. My dentist assured me that this was a normal reaction to a foreign substance in my mouth and would disappear in a couple of days. It never disappeared and I thought once I got the final implant the problem would go away. Well it has been almost a wear since I my implant was finished and I still have excessive salivation problems. The constant production of salivation and the consequent swallowing is becoming a big problem.  Any suggestions as to hope to stop this.
