The aim of this study was to perform quantitative and qualitative assessment of salivary secretion within a group of young adults. Materials and methods: the study included 130 patients aged 19-22 years, attending the Faculty of Dental Medicine at the U.M.Ph. “Grigore T. Popa” in Iasi. The subjects were clinically examined for the DMFT, CPITN and API indices assessment, as well as for stimulated salivary flow rate and saliva buffer capacity. Results: 34% of the subjects had a medium oral hygiene. The mean DMFT index was 9.46. 60% of the subjects had supra/subgingival calculus. 92.31% of the subjects had a normal salivary secretion rate and 77% of them had a normal saliva buffer capacity. Correlations were found between the clinical indicators of oral health status and the salivary parameters. Conclusion: detecting host-related risk factors may be one of the basic elements in the control and prediction of dental caries.
