Sialorhoea - Pathophysiology - Archived

Sialorrhoea can be caused by three different factors:

  • Excessive production of saliva*
  • Inability to retain saliva in the mouth
  • Difficulty in swallowing

* Excessive production is not a problem in itself unless accompanied by one or both of the other two factors.
