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.

what type of shitty assistants does he have. Could just have someone keep suction you could just get really dehydrated. like no drinking morning to evening or the night before should get cottonmouth. drink a bunch when you are done and its no praaablem
also I do not think he was prepared. Extra saliva has gotta be something they train for.
he knows now so he should solve it. or maybe... sol-ive-ol it

The technician doesn't hold a saliva aspirator in your mouth when going to the dentist? If not, change dentists...

As for myself, I don't know what happened, but 3 years ago after tripping on 4-aco-dmt, at the tail end of the trip I started producing extreme amounts of saliva so much I had to keep a garbage bin next to me to spin into. It continues to this day, I buy about 200 bucks of ENTEX LA a year, at least since I get it on a prescription, I don't pay sales taxes, that's the way it is with government med insurance for aisles products. It's 800mg guaifenesin and 60mg pseudoephedrine and is released over 12 hours. That coupled with an antihistamine, I got a script for Atarax 50mg (hydroxyzine) that I already had for suboxone related nausea, I'm out of ORT and got rid of Suboxone when I was switched to the pain clinic and weening myself off over 8 years, now I get 60mg generic oxycontins (Oxycodone-CR) every 12 hours, proved my ass off I can use opioids responsibly. Benadryl 50mg works okay too.

But the best thing I ever had for this excessive saliva issues, which is paradoxical, they all say oh you never had much cavities ( I had 2 tiny ones in between teeth beforre getting on the Subs, started at 12mg, dropped to 10, then 8, then 6, then 4, it started to be difficult between 2-6mg, we should have 1mg pills, they won't script even numbers of mgs of suboxone, so the pharmacy wouldn't just cut 2mg pills in half for me, but dissolving it in bacteriostatic water for 2mg to 0.5mg helped at jumping out.

I don't know what my problem is, it seems related to both the sinuses and the larynx, so it could be the ever elusive Laryngopharyngeal Reflux, a bunch of things, which makes finding out quite problematic. Next step is having tube stuck up my nose and throat, that makes me extremely nervous, just the feeling of having stuff crawling up my nose and face bothers me. But the technician told me that if it bothers me that much, they'll give me an Ativan 2mg.

Dentists do script Ativan, Xanax, Valium etc. for people with dentistry phobia, it's common and they don't mind normally. It's too bad too many of them don't use nitrous anymore and spare us the whole exercise, in a city of 200k, there is one dentist who uses it, all others use lidocaine, marcaine etc., cocaine analogues to anaesthetize you locally, it's still makes being stung in the palate very uncomfortable.

I'm so sick of going to the dentist because of what Suboxone (and it's natural and artificial lemon and lime extracts...although the generics I took in the last 3 years when they were allowed in, some of them were much less Mr.Clean tasting), but it wasn't long until the one pharmacist chick I didn't like, who I'm okay with now, but I had to change pharmacy at first, i had a huge one on the other side of the street of the large street I lived on, could be a blvd, but it kept its regular street status...ehhh anyways, I got on methadone first ( and left it 11 months later after it made me gain 110 pounds fatter, made me crave sugar too), but Suboxone doesn't do that, it's the pill itself that caused me to go from 2 cavities in my lifetime, tiny ones, in my early 30's to all teeth having had some work done on them by now at 37, so I sympathize with your situation a lot, although I don't fear salivating, but when in public, I got to carry a little personal kleenex pack and on bad days I can't help but making awful sounds as I clean up the back of my throat where the holes going up in your nose are....it's where there's always a baseline quantity of mucus/saliva...if it's mucus, it's totally white so I'm totally in the dark since 3 years after this weird incident.

You should be okay if you mention you're very uncomfortable with dentistry and would like a sedative, don't mention anything by name though.
