Abstract The potential non-cariogenicity of the pentose sugar alcohols xylitol, l -arabinitol and ribitol was estimated by determining their fermenting properties with 50 separate samples of dental plaque, collected from people of different ages. Sucrose and control cultures were included for comparison. For most subjects, sucrose was more acidogenic than the pentitols. Lactobacilli or propionibacteria which fermented xylitol were isolated in pure culture from 2 out of 50 plaque samples whereas… Expand
