Saliva And Dental Health

Saliva And Yuma

In  this blog post from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ we examine saliva, and its role in your dental health.

Saliva is mostly water. No surprises there. A small portion of it, though, is made up of enzymes, antibacterial substances, mucus, and minerals. The ideal pH balance of the mouth is maintained by saliva, and pH balance is a critical factor for preventing cavities.

The minerals in saliva help to maintain the enamel surface of the teeth. Immunoproteins in saliva curb the overgrowth of microbes in the mouth, thereby protecting the gums from gingivitis.

Now that you know how important saliva is to dental health, you can probably see why adequate salivary flow should concern you. For most people, everyday chewing is enough to stimulate salivary glands to release saliva. However, dry mouth, also known as xerostomia, is an ailment that should be dealt with quickly before oral health problems occur.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we want the best possible dental health for each of our patients. Services include general and restorative dentistry. We also have an office in Fortuna Foothills. Schedule an appointment today!
