The aim of this study was to compare the levels of fluoride and mutans streptococci in plaque grown on glass ionomer (Ketac-Fil) and composite (Silar) restorations in vivo. From tunnels left under the brackets bonded either with glass ionomer or composite, 14-day-old plaque samples were collected 14, 28, and 42 days after bonding. For glass ionomer the mean counts of mutans streptococci in plaque were 0.5 x 10(3), 6.7 x 10(3), and 8.8 x 10(3) CFU at the first, second, and third collection… CONTINUE READING
