Description

Saliva plays a very important role in the mouth’s environment, digestion and overall health. It moistens the mouth for comfort,
lubricates as you chew and swallow, and neutralizes harmful acids. It also kills germs and prevents bad breath, defends against
tooth decay and gum disease, protects enamel, and speeds up wound healing. This makes it especially important to address
problems you may be having with your saliva such as too much or too little saliva, or saliva that is too thick or does not have the
right balance of beneficial bacteria. Medications can cause negative changes in saliva, and it is important to discuss this with your
doctor and dentist. Saliva testing by your dentist or oral health professional is an important procedure to consider for monitoring
saliva changes and understanding how your saliva may be contributing positively or negatively to your oral health.
