2.The normal aging process reduces the antibacterial properties of saliva.3.A lack of salivary gland lubrication makes chewing the food difficult, resulting in gum trauma.4.A dry mouth lacks bacteria-fighting immunoglobulin A.Correct Answer:4Rationale 1: While poorly chewed food that remains in the oral cavity does support bacterial growth and a lack oforal lubrication may make chewing food more difficult, they are not the primary risk factors in this scenario.Rationale 2: Normal aging does not appear to have an effect on the antibacterial properties of saliva.Rationale 3: There is no indication of gum trauma.Rationale 4: Saliva contains large amounts of ions, such as immunoglobulinA, a vital component for destroyingoral bacteria.
