The 4 Components Of Saliva That Keep Teeth Healthy

Juno Beach dry mouth relief

Hello, my name is Dr. Brion Weinberg and I want to welcome you to my Juno Beach dental blog. My dental practice, Weinberg Dentistry, wants to help our Jupiter, West Palm Beach, and Palm Beach patients to be knowledgeable about oral health issues.

Today we are going to discuss the complexity and importance of your saliva. This typically yucky substance is, in reality, a finely balance body fluid that not only maintains dental health but also aids in digestion of your food. So, without further ado, here are the main components of saliva.

1. Water. No surprise here! You saliva consists mostly of water.

2. Enzymes. Enzymes are important biological catalysts that speed chemical reactions. The enzymes in saliva begin the process of digestion.

3. Immunoproteins. These are dynamic cells that fight cellular invaders, such as bacteria. Those in saliva inhibit the overgrowth of microbes in the mouth. This is essential to avoiding gingivitis and keeping a healthy pH balance in the mouth.

4. Minerals. Saliva minerals assist in maintaining the protective enamel surface of the teeth.

Most Palm Beach Gardens dental patients produce enough saliva, but some suffer from dry mouth, which is a lack of saliva. This can be detrimental to your dental health, so be sure to communicate with your Juno Beach dentist if you are experiencing this.

If you are in the Jupiter, West Palm Beach, or Palm Beach area and are in search of quality dental care, please call my office today at 561-622-7220. Our honest and technologically advanced staff would be happy to talk to you about our successful services, which include:
