gastroesophageal acid reflux and Oral Health

Oral Health

GERD has been shown to affect overall oral health. One study showed that children with GERD have increased dental erosion, salivary yeast, and salivary Mutans streptococci compared with healthy children. In addition, research indicates that children with GERD have more dental caries and more severe erosion compared with healthy children. .( Franco RA, et al , 2006)
