Objectives: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of some drinks on saliva pH.
Systemic and periodontally healthy individuals aged 18-23 years were included in the study. Individuals saliva pHs were measured three hours after breakfast. Three groups were set up to measure after 1 minute, 10 minutes and 30 minutes after drinks were drunk and the effects of Turkish coffee, cola, ayran and green tea on saliva pH were investigated.
The most pronounced pH changes occurred in the first group. The lowest pH values were reached when cola was consumed while the highest pH values were reached when green tea was consumed. Within the pH measurement time period, the drink group with the least tendency of pH value change was green tea.
In order to prevent tooth decay, there is a need to raise awareness about conscious and controlled consumption of beverages that may lead to significant reductions in salivary pH.
