Background: This study aimed to conduct a comparative analysis for evaluating the ratio of cariogenic bacteria in plaque and saliva samples as a preliminary study for developing a simple culture kit for caries-risk assessment. Materials and Methods: Stimulated saliva and plaque samples using sterile toothbrushes were obtained from adult volunteers. The ratio of Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans, Sm) to total streptococci (TS) (Sm/TS ratio) was determined by counting the number of colonies by… Expand
