Saliva is essential to keeping your mouth clean and healthy. It washes away food particles and harmful bacteria, neutralizes acids, and more. Dry mouth is not only uncomfortable, but it puts you at an increased risk for bad breath, gum disease, and tooth decay. Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more about this problem.

At Davenport Dental Group, we can advise you on ways to increase saliva flow and bring your mouth back to health. To book an appointment, fill out our online form or call either one of our Laredo, TX offices (Junction Drive at 956-242-6745 or Winfield at 956-517-2695).
