The aim of our study was to assess the relation between the age of dental erosion and the parameters of quality and quantity for salivary secretion in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Materials and methods: The study group included 50 patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), diagnosed at Gastroenterology and Liver Pathology Institute. The patients were examined by same dentist that recorded data related to erosion severity. Scores for TWI index, evaluations of stimulated and resting saliva flows (RFS, RFR), pH and buffering capacity of saliva, were included in the dental chart used for recording of patient oral health within the Discipline of Cariology and Restorative Dentistry. Data were submitted to statistic tests using software SPSS 17.0. Results: The age of dental erosion presented a strong correlation with RFS, followed by RFR, salivary pH and buffering capacity. Conclusions: Patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) have a high risk of salivary disorders. Dentists should rebalance the saliva functions related to quantity and quality, for a long term success in dental erosions therapy.
