Dry mouth and its relation to cavities..

At some point in your life, you may experience dry mouth, but only a few know its connections to an increased risk of tooth decay. Dry mouth is caused by insufficient flow of saliva from salivary glands and saliva plays a significant role in dental cavity protection by breaking down starches and neutralizing cavity causing acids. Saliva also provides ions to keep teeth strong and coat them with protective nutrients.

Children who experience dry mouth are suitable for dental sealants. Dental sealants are ideal for molars which are usually neglected while brushing. To learn more about sealants and cavities contact KIDS DENTAL STUDIO 7202833900
