Introduction:

Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a functional multifactorial disorder of the upper gastrointestinal tract. Oral alterations are considered to be extraesophageal manifestations of this disease.

Objective:

Determine the oral alterations found in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Methods:

An observational descriptive study was conducted of 37 patients diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease. The variables analyzed were age, sex, presence of alteration, signs and symptoms, and location. A database was developed with the information recorded, and absolute frequencies and percentages were estimated.

Results:

Of the patients studied, 48.6% had some sort of oral alteration, such as a burning sensation (40.5%) and erythema (35.1%). The regions affected included the soft palate / uvula (72.2%) and the tongue (61.1%).

Conclusions:

Almost half of the patients affected by gastroesophageal reflux had some sort of oral manifestation, the most common of which were a burning sensation, erythema, a dry mouth sensation and ulcerations. The most common locations were the soft palate / uvula and the tongue.
