You help my patients digest, which makes you the best.
You are a PH buffer, which makes their teeth tougher.
I love when you remineralize, caries that is in disguise.
You help them taste, on which jolly ranchers you have aced.
You provide them with protection, from harmful microbes, without objection.
Thanks for helping my patients speak, but please don’t gleek, especially on my sealant prep that I will now have to tweak.
Saliva, you are a surviva, except for when the body’s nervous system-sympathetic is not so energetic.
