Thanks for your query.

Any foreign body like a bridge or cap may result in exessive saliva for a few weeks whch reverts to normal once the body gets used to it. XXXXXXX mouth seems unusual and i would suggest that you consult your dentist with this problem if it doesnt go away with in a months time.
Hope this answers your query.

i'm also feeling anxiouness where my crown is placed as well my shaved theet's roots some times they hurt and if a used dental floss some times they bleed. Is this a normal thing.

Bleeding from gums while flossing is a sign of inflammation which may be due to food lodgement in the area. As you have mentioned that you also feel pain in your prepared teeth then i would suggest you consult your dentist regarding the same. Also ask him to check if there is any gap between the caps leading to food getting stuck which causes bleeding. Meanwhile use a good mouth wash and rinse thoroughly after every meal to keep the area clean.
