Introduction: Saliva is a clear, slightly acidic fluid and contains a wide spectrum of inorganic and organic components. The complex and diverse of salivary composition plays an important role in the maintenance of oral health.

Aim of the Work: This review article aims to clarify the correlation between saliva, salivary statherin and dental caries.

Methodology: The review is comprehensive research of PUBMED since the year 1979 to 2021.

Conclusion: The present review is a valiant attempt which highlights the possible potential relationship between the salivary statherin and dental caries. Recently there has been an increasing interest in identification of disease specific salivary markers with clinical relevance. Statherin could possibly play a role in dental calculus formation and another role in the defense mechanism against dental Caries. The influence of bacterial proteases and salivary flow on the statherin levels should be investigated and finally longitudinal follow-up studies to investigate the long-term influence of the statherin and other proteins related are to calcium hemostasis, like PRPs and cystains, on oral hygiene status, dental caries, erosion and dental calculus formation are required.
