Background/purpose Streptococcus sanguinis is an early colonizer of biofilm and plays a key role in the process of adhesion to prosthetic surfaces by facilitating the adhesion of later colonizers. The main aim of this study was to determine if S. sanguinis is affected by the gold concentration dental prosthetic alloys. Materials and methods Five commonly used alloys with varying degrees of gold concentration were selected for this study. We evaluated the ability of S. sanguinis ATCC strain… CONTINUE READING
