Saliva And Dental Health

Saliva And Cornwall

In this post from Cornwall Dental Arts in Cornwall Ontario, we explore the importance of your saliva. Though most people may think it’s gross, saliva is essential for dental health as well as digestion.

Saliva is mostly water, but a small portion of it is made up of enzymes, antibacterial substances, mucus, and minerals. The prime pH balance of the mouth is maintained by saliva, and pH balance is an essential 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 vital saliva is to dental health, we’re sure you can 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 issues transpire.

At Cornwall Dental Arts in Cornwall Ontario, we provide general and family dentistry, as well as pediatric dentistry. Make an appointment with us today.
