Saliva has many functions, including the one that helps digestion, and has also a role in disinfection. Saliva is a liquid that moistens foods when ingested by the mouth, making them softer to swallow. Moreover saliva is a natural cleanser of the mouth that removes food debris and disinfects teeth and gums. It does not of course replace brushing and flossing.
