How Sleeping with Your Mouth Open Hurts Your Mouth
When you sleep with your mouth open, your mouth gets dry. This means that your saliva does not have the ability to help keep your teeth clean and protected. While you sleep, your teeth are constantly being coated with saliva. The saliva helps to add minerals and nutrients to your teeth. The saliva also prevents tooth decay and fights against gingivitis. By sleeping with your mouth open, the saliva in your mouth dries out, and you become more susceptible to all of these issues. If you constantly sleep with your mouth open, make sure to come in and talk to us about it. We can help!
