BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Dental caries is associated with oral pathogens and Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans) is one of the primary cariogenic organisms. Mastic gum, from Pistacia lentiscus, has been shown to have antibacterial properties. The objective of this study was to determine antibacterial activity of mastic chewing gum against S. mutans and mutans streptococci in vitro and in vivo conditions. SETTING Cukurova University, Dental School, in 2002. MATERIALS AND METHODS Antimicrobial… CONTINUE READING
