Is excessive saliva secretion a cause of concern? Are there any serious causes behind it? Please reply fast because my brother has been suffering from it since the last few months and the condition is not improving no matter what.

Too much saliva is actually good because it protects against decay.

However, the problem is probably not too much saliva, but an imperfect seal of his lips, causing salvia to leak out. Contact an orthodontist, who may treat him for imperfect lip seal, or refer him to a myofunctional therapist.

Excessive saliva production is common problem and no need to worry much for that. It usually happens due to variety of reasons like new denture, GERD, mouth or throat infection, some medications and Stomatitis. I would suggest you to consult dentist for better and fast result.
