Get lot of saliva while speaking. What could cause this?

Im not sure exactly how to explain this and have it makes sense. I literally freak out about public speaking..not because I cant talk in front of people but because something weird happens. I get like alot of saliva in my mouth and its hard for me to swallow . This only happens when I have to talk in front of a class. This started in 5th grade and I m now a junior in high school. Please Help.

Dentist 's  Response
Increased saliva production may be due to-
Incompetent lips.
Increased no-of minor salivary glands activated.
I would advice you to visit a dentist and get a thorough evaluation done.
Antisialogogues are usually administered in such cases.
Meanwhile maintain oral hygiene well.
Rinse your mouth after every meals.
Hope this helps.
