A continuous flow system was developed to evaluate the adhesion of Streptococcus mutans ATCC 25175 to filling materials (Ariston, Tetric, Dyract, Compoglass, Vitremer, Aqua Ionofil, Ketac Fil, amalgam, Galloy and ceramics as controls). Streptococcus mutans was added to saliva-coated test specimens, and a nutrient broth permanently supplied over a time period of 48 h and then the weight of plaque, the number and viability of the bacteria adhering to the materials were determined. The weights of… CONTINUE READING
