OBJECTIVE This study evaluated whether Quantitative Light-induced Fluorescence-Digital (QLF-D) can detect the levels of cariogenicity of dental microcosm biofilms by assessing the red fluorescence intensity. METHODS Dental microcosm biofilms were initiated from human saliva on bovine enamel discs. Biofilms with various levels of cariogenicity were then grown in artificial saliva supplemented with sucrose at different concentrations (0.05%, 0.1%, 0.2%, and 0.5%) in 24-well microplates.
