OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the caries risk in children over a two-year period and their baseline caries status, salivary levels of mutans streptococci and lactobacilli, and results of the Alban test and modifications thereof using different substrates. STUDY DESIGN Ninety-five children aged 6-7 were examined(More)
Susceptibility to macrolides and lincosamides was tested in a total of 446 strains of oral streptococci belonging to eleven species, all isolated from dental plaque and/or saliva in 1991. Minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) were determined by the double serial dilutions method in agar. Clindamycin was the most effective antibiotic against all species(More)
The phenotypic characteristics of 215 strains of oral streptococci were compared on the basis of the results of sorbitol, raffinose and trehalose fermentation, ammonium from arginine production, aesculin hydrolysis, H2O2 production, susceptibility to 2 U bacitracin, and growth in 4% NaCl solution. Eleven different species were identified. Among the most(More)
