The 4 Components Of Saliva That Keep Dilworth Teeth Healthy

Charlotte dry mouth relief

Hello, my name is Dr. Christopher Bowman and I want to welcome you to my Charlotte dental blog. My dental practice, Christopher A. Bowman, DDS, PA, wants to help our Myers Park, Cotswold, and South Park 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 adieu, here are the main components of saliva.

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

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

3. Immunoproteins. These are vigorous 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 Dilworth dental patients produce enough saliva, but some suffer from dry mouth, which is a lack of saliva. This can be dangerous to your dental health, so be sure to meet with your Charlotte dentist if you are experiencing this.
