Mahima Sehgal, Dr. Suwarna Dangore, Radha Goverdhan, Mahwish Nida.

Abstract
In a conscious person, saliva is continuously produced. Saliva not only helps in digestion of
food, maintain oral hygiene but also helps in regulating water balance of body. Excessive production of saliva or
sialorrhea is a medical and psychosocial problem. It may be due to various dysfunction like sensory,
neuromuscular, hypersecretion or even anatomic (motor). Mentally retarded children and those with cerebral
palsy are more prone to it. This may lead to social embarrassment, low self-esteem and social alienation in the
affected person.
Proper assessment and diagnosis is critical in finalizing the treatment plan. A careful diagnosis includes Physical
examination, taking family history, observing the neurological co-ordination, searching for evidences of dental
problem, any factor contributing to nasal obstruction, observing the severity of drooling. This review article
outlines the physiology, etiology, psychosocial effect, evaluation and treatment strategies of sialorrhea.

Key words: Saliva, sialorrhea, drooling
