The Importance of Saliva

Saliva is an important part of your oral health and essential for your dental comfort. Watch this video to learn more about the importance of saliva.

When you eat, food particles can often be left behind around your teeth and gums. Saliva helps to wash these particles away, and neutralizes the acids caused by plaque. It also contains minerals that help to strengthen your tooth enamel, which is essential for healthy, cavity-free teeth. If you don’t produce enough saliva, dry mouth—or xerostomia—may develop and cause difficulty speaking, chewing, and swallowing. Talk to your dentist if you frequently experience dry mouth, as it can be treated with oral rinses and other methods.
