Saliva plays an incredibly important role in the health of our mouth. If you do not have any saliva it can be difficult to eat and drink properly. Along with that, this can lead to dehydration. It can be difficult to talk and communicate if your mouth is dry. Additionally, dry mouth and dehydration can lead to embarrassing issues such as bad breath.
Saliva has antibacterial properties and helps clean the mouth. Saliva helps to balance the pH levels in the mouth. Without saliva, you are more likely to get tooth decay. Not only are you more likely to get cavities, if your mouth has no moisture to it, the soft tissues in your mouth may become damaged as well.
