Saliva is a complex fluid produced by 3 pairs of major salivary glands and by hundreds of minor salivary glands. It comprises a large variety of constituents and physicochemical properties, which are important for the maintenance of oral health. Saliva not only protects the teeth and the oropharyngeal mucosa, it also facilitates articulation of speech, and is imperative for mastication and swallowing. Furthermore, saliva plays an important role in maintaining a balanced microbiota. Thus, the… 
A secret of salivary secretions: Multimodal effect of saliva in sensory perception of food.
TLDR
This review presents saliva as a unique material, which modulates food perception due to constant presence of saliva in the mouth and thanks to its composition, and structures the effects of saliva on perception of different food categories, where the mechanisms of salivary impact in perception of liquid, semi-solid, and solid foods are revealed.
Novel impacts of saliva with regard to oral health.
Myoepithelial Cell Function in Salivary Gland Physiology and Disease
TLDR
The biology of the human salivary glands is reviewed to provide context on the biology and physiology of MEC in the function of these glands.
Salivary Gland Anatomy and Physiology
TLDR
Salivary glands are classified as exocrine, and as such, they produce secretions onto an epithelial surface via a system of ducts and have both parasympathetic and sympathetic innervation.
Salivary Biomarkers and Oral Microbial Load in Relation to the Dental Status of Adults with Cystic Fibrosis
TLDR
In CF patients, saliva properties, accompanied by insufficient dental care, might be an essential dental caries risk factor.
Salivary Metabolomics for Diagnosis and Monitoring Diseases: Challenges and Possibilities
TLDR
Applications of the salivary metabolic profile in diagnosis and prognosis, monitoring the treatment success, and planning of personalized treatment of oral and systemic diseases are discussed.
Role of Saliva and Salivary Diagnostics in the Advancement of Oral Health
TLDR
Findings in salivary physiology, biochemistry, calcium phosphate chemistry related to saliva, microbiology, and the role of saliva in maintaining oral health are covered.
Decreased basal and stimulated salivary parameters by histopathological lesions and secretory dysfunction of parotid and submandibular glands in rats with type 2 diabetes
TLDR
Results indicated that parotid gland impairment was more severe compared with submandibular gland impairment, and reduced salivary secretion may be associated with histopathological lesions and decreased regulation in secretory pathways in Salivary glands.
Reduced Salivary Mucin Binding and Glycosylation in Older Adults Influences Taste in an In Vitro Cell Model
TLDR
A role of saliva in facilitating the activation of taste receptors is supported, and reduced levels and sialylation of MUC7 were evident in saliva of older adults which may lead to reduced viscoelasticity, while viscosity is unaffected.

Diseases Causing Oral Dryness
TLDR
This chapter reviews systemic diseases and medical conditions associated with salivary gland hypofunction and xerostomia, which include autoimmune diseases like Sjogren’s syndrome, endocrine and metabolic disorders mainly related to pathophysiological changes that affect the formation of saliva.
Saliva and the Control of Its Secretion
The various functions of saliva—among them digestive, protective and trophic ones—not just limited to the mouth, and the relative contribution of the different types of gland to the total volume

TLDR
This review describes the neural regulation of salivary secretion in terms of fluid, protein, and ion secretion and describes some of the components and physical properties of saliva and attempts to relate them to the functions that saliva must perform.

TLDR
Findings have led to a generalized view that saliva functions to hydrate and lubricate the oral structures; facilitate the oral phase of saliva secretion.
Saliva composition and functions: a comprehensive review.
TLDR
A strictly standardized collection must be made so the above-mentioned exams are able to reflect the real functioning of the salivary glands and serve as efficient means for monitoring health.
The Functions of Saliva
Nature's demands on salivary glands are extensive and diverse and range from the reptilian need for a venomous drop to incapacitate its prey to the 100 quarts that ruminants require to digest a day's
Influence of saliva on the oral microbiota.
TLDR
Saliva plays a major role in determining the composition and activity of the oral microbiota, via a variety of mechanisms, and components of the adaptive and innate host defences are delivered by saliva, and these often function synergistically, and at sublethal concentrations, so a complex relationship develops between the host and the resident microbiota.
