DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.085
Synopsis: 
We explored the effects of methylphenidate on oral health during treatment for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Results indicate that methylphenidate consumption in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder leads to reduced salivary buffering capacity and salivary flow rate after 3 months of follow-up.
