  • Some times increased salivation is there after the tooth extraction but the problem is resolved once the complete healng has taken place. It is always better to swallow the saliva than to spit it as spitting can affect the healing and healing can be delayed. It will take another week for complete healing to take place and with that the salivation problem will also be solved.
