Tooth wear may be in the form of attrition, erosion, abrasion, non carious cervical lesion or combination of sorts. The present study aims to assess the effect of salivary pH and flow rate on tooth wear. Materials and Methods: Seventy five subjects (18–50 years) were evaluated for their tooth wear and their collected unstimulated saliva was analysed Results: Salivary pH (p = 0.67) and flow rate (0.45) were not significantly correlated with total tooth wear. Conclusion: Total tooth wear is not correlated with the pH and flow rate of saliva.
