BACKGROUND Although a few growth media are available for selective isolation of the cariogenic bacteria, Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans), it is still unclear as to which is the most efficacious. This study compared the selectivity and sensitivity of five different media for growing a laboratory strain of S. mutans (NCTC 10449), and for enumerating S. mutans from teeth of a group of young children, aged 2-10 years. METHODS The media tested in this study were mitis salivarius with bacitracin… CONTINUE READING
