I got a fear of salivating too much at the dentist. As a result I salivate even more, the more I focus on it.

It sounds silly as I write it but believe me, it's absolute hell.

My dentist had the toughest time operating on me last time. It was an absolute mess. The products he used to fill my cavity were all failing to stick. He tried about all of them. He was afraid the analgesia was going to wear off. I've never seen him so panicked. It was nerve-wrecking for the both of us and awfully uncomfortable as I had such trouble breathing while all of it was going on. He managed to fill the cavity but it was messy. The filling fell out just a few weeks afterwards.

I need to go to the dentist again but I'm awfully scared. It really was that bad.

How on earth can I make it so I do not salivate this much? I cannot NOT think about it once it's entered my mind. And it will.

How can I even overcome a fear that actually seems justified in this instance?

I really don't know what to do.

You could try diphenhydramine. (Benedryl,) will likely cause dry mouth and is used for anxiety at times. It does have sedating effects. 25 mgs which they come in, maybe the night before may work well. Yea, people do salivate at dentists.
Diphenhydramine does whatever that blocks salivation. It may or will make you kinda sleepy. Less anxiety.

I don't recommend this for anything invasive, but dehydration will reduce saliva production.

diphenhydramine is tolerated by most people. It is simply an antihistamine, allergy tablets. Hay fever etc. Benadryl. It will cross a brain barrier that definitely lessens salivation. To a point of a dry mouth, which is perfect for filling cavities and cracked teeth. And working with the patient/client. As much as it is not being very fun to begin with.

Take diphendramine at say 11:30 pm. By 4, 5, am. Need water. It's like clockwork. Drinking water will not promote excessive salivation.
Because salivation will be blocked to varying degrees.

So if appointment is at say 9 am. You would still feel somwhat burned out, Your mouth will be dry though. Even if you drink water.

Anxiety should be lessened for most people with diphenhydramine. t's no fun. But when it is done, it is actually done.

Take a trial run with diphendydramine and note the effects.. Seriously this is my best suggestion for lessening excessive salivation in the most convenient efficient predictable manner.
He felt uncomfortable, you felt uncomfortable. I felt the same deal. My chipped tooth filling failed after a week because of excessive salivation. Anxiety.
There should be no need for analgesics at this point, because the difficult work has been done. All needs to be done if fill the cavity.
A dry mouth would make it a very simple process. Hence, simple diphenhydramine. Taken before bedtime. 25 to 50 mgs

/med/, we have failed. It was so obvious all along. I prescribe you two full shots of marijuanas to induce acute cotton mouth.
