Why is Saliva So Important to Your Oral Health?

Last updated 1 year ago

Saliva isn’t something we normally think about when referring to oral health, but it actually plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy mouth. Without saliva, you can experience problems with talking, chewing, and swallowing, not to mention the lost benefits for your teeth.

Watch this video to learn more about the part that saliva plays in your oral hygiene. You’ll learn about how it washes away food particles, delivers vital minerals, and much more. If you’re experiencing dry mouth from a decrease in saliva production, contact your dentist for relief.
