FINDOS Symposium 2021 Saliva and Lifestyle – Microbial and Clinical Perspectives, PART 1 Nutrition and Microbiome
20.5.2021 at 10.00 - 14.30
Saliva is a watery secretion of the salivary glands. In addition to its well-known functions in lubrication and digestion, it also maintains oral health and prevents dental and periodontal diseases by providing continuous protection against infectious, physical, and chemical stresses. Recent studies indicate that the salivary microbial profile and salivary protective functions are prone to local and environmental factors. In this two-day webinar, we will try to find answer to the question: how do our lifestyle choices and nutritional preferences affect our oral microbial composition and salivary defense?
