Slow Saliva Production Can Slow Acid Neutralization

Cavities are directly caused by oral acid, a byproduct of bacteria, that can erode tooth enamel over prolonged contact.

This is minimized by normal amounts of saliva production and flow that neutralizes acid and remineralizes enamel. Slow saliva production can slow acid neutralization.

By drinking plenty of water every day, you’re going to wash away food and debris that can get stuck in your teeth, as well as stimulate your body to produce more saliva– which is your best defense against smile deterioration because it’s rich with minerals and proteins. •
