There was no clear cut reason be conciouus.
Dear lybrate-user, at your fathers age excessive saliva in throat after eating is normal. Asfar as the clicking sound is concerned had it been associated with pain there could be cause for alarm. The treating doctor has just given you calcium supplements which every aged individual requires and an antiseptic mouthwash. Why zerodol sp an analgesic is beyond my comprehension. Otherwise everything is fine and no need to worry.
