In this last case it is accompanied by a coppery taste in the mouth, by swelling of the gums, and sometimes by looseness of the teeth. Salivation may usually be diminished by the use of astringents, laxatives, etc. Ptyalismus acutus sympatheticus, Salivae fluxus cibo viso, Mouth watering, the increased flow of saliva produced by the sight, smell, or thought of agreeable food, is a species of ptyalism, as well as the Ptyaliamus acutus mellitus, Apocenosis ptyalismus mellitus, Dulcedo Sputatorwn, or Sweet spittle.
