DENTAL FACT: Did you know that the average human produces 25,000 quarts of saliva in a lifetime? How does that compare to the size of your nearest swimming pool?
Saliva is vital to the health of your teeth. It is 98 percent water and packed with electrolytes, proteins, and minerals that strengthen your teeth and keep your gums healthy.

Often dry mouth is accompanied by increased dental decay, so be sure to continue seeing your dentist regularly.
