Saliva and Cary Dental Health

Saliva And Cary

Hi. I’m Dr. Allan Acton. Welcome to my Cary dental blog. Today we’ll be looking at the complexity and importance of your saliva. Although most people in the Apex, NC, Morrisville, or Holly Springs areas may think it’s gross, saliva is essential to 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 pH balance of the mouth is maintained by saliva, and pH balance is a key factor in the development of cavities and other forms of tooth decay.

The minerals in saliva help to maintain the enamel surface of the teeth. Immunoproteins in saliva inhibit the overgrowth of microbes in the mouth, thereby protecting the gums from gingivitis.

Now that Raleigh residents know how important saliva is to dental health, I’m sure you can see why ample salivary flow should concern you. For most of my Cary patients, 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 complications occur.

If you are in the Apex, NC, Morrisville, or Holly Springs area and are looking for quality dental care, please contact my office today at 919-371-4428. We have been providing general and cosmetic dentistry in Cary since 2003.

Our welcoming staff would be happy to talk to you about KöR whitening, sedation dentistry, dentures, dental crowns, and the other services we provide to our valued patients.
