Saliva – Its Role In Your Oral Health

Saliva plays an important role in the health of your mouth and a big part of how saliva can do this is by having a balanced PH level, but how do we keep it balanced?

Start with a healthy diet, limiting sugar is always helpful as well as ensuring a balanced diet.

Reduce your alcohol and caffeine intake as best as you can.

Seeds and beans are great alkaline foods, so bring those into your diet.

A low PH level means a higher level of acidity in your mouth and this has a negative effect on your teeth and can cause erosion of the tooth enamel and more – so there is a big benefit to ensuring a balanced PH level in your mouth. Bayberry Dental Care 708-802-8300 - Dentist Tinley Park IL 60477
