Is quite natural to have an increase in saliva in the beginning but that too shall pass so just give your mouth time to adjust. It's totally normal.

I actually wouldn’t mind a little. I am taking medication that has caused dry mouth. I was looking forward to a little extra, but alas, mouth is still dry as the desert.

I am dealing with the same issue.  I told my dentist that I feel like a drooling dog I have so much saliva.  I have found that if I can put it out of my mind that it gets better, well until I think about it, and then it starts all over again.
I have found that it is worse if I use Sea Bond adhesive pads or a mint flavored adhesive.  I'm sure there is a learning curve that I will figure out given enough time and adjustments.

Good Luck, if you find the answer that you are looking for, Please come back and tell me your new found secret!!!

It all gets better and changes as the days and weeks go by. I might add not always fir the better, but hey at least we no longer have a mouth full of pain. Always look on the bright side

UPDATE...I have had my dentures for over a month and the saliva issue is GONE.  When I do salivate a little more, I breathe in and out of my mouth and the saliva dries up.  Anyway the problem is gone in less than a month !
