Research on caries bacteria strains

What do you think, when a doctor tells a patient about pathogenic bacteria in the oral cavity, does this contribute to hygiene? Scientists believe that the results of a recent study on the content of specific strains of bacteria and fungi in the mouth will finally make patients think.

The study involved 25 adults with no signs of caries. They took samples of bacterial biofilms from the interdental space. According to the analysis results, Streptococcus and Lactobacillus bacteria were isolated in the microflora of all participants, while Streptococcus mutans bacteria were found in only 28% of the samples. The authors came to the conclusion that even people without signs of caries need to use dental floss or a special interdental brush to clean the cavity of traces of these bacteria. Continue reading
