Abstract: This paper investigates the impact of lactic acid and phosphoric acid additives in artificial saliva (AS), simulating inflammation and food breakdown, on the electrochemical and tribo-electrochemical behavior of titanium. The results showed that, unlike lactic acid, phosphoric acid significantly reduced corrosion resistance, mainly due to local damage and heterogeneities on the passive film. Non-additivated AS caused greater wear volume loss, with mechanical wear identified as the main mechanism. However, when additives were present, a synergistic interplay between corrosion and wear was observed. The study concludes that prolonged exposure to food breakdown could accelerate material degradation in titanium. © 2024 Elsevier Ltd
