Abstract

The salivary fluids represent an important organic component for maintenance of the oral health. The salivary secretions are always present in the mouth and the saliva is constantly produced by glandular organs, particularly diversified structurally and functionally. The continuous and complex regulations of the salivation are modulated continually and necessarily compare to the anatomical structures and the functional conditions of the mouth. Insofar, the salivary secretions defend daily the oral soft and hard tissues from microbial, chemical and physical insults. The studies and the scientific researches of the physiology of the salivary glands and the organic and inorganic components of the saliva have contributed to define and to delineate some important functions of the oral cavity and they have given important indications about therapeutic procedures and prevention programs. Besides, the comprehension of the biological and metabolic oral mechanisms has given some important scientific explanations to other medical and surgical disciplines on the possible interactions and correlations between oral pathologies and systemic organic health conditions.
