AIMS To investigate the action of different polyphenolic compounds, extracted from red wine, grape marc and pine bark, on oral bacteria. METHODS AND RESULTS The anti-microbial activity of extracts was examined by determining the Minimal Inhibitory Concentration and Minimal Bactericidal Concentration using the macro dilution broth technique. Their effect on the adherence was tested on growing cells of Streptococcus mutans on a glass surface and on a multi-species biofilm grown on saliva-coated… CONTINUE READING
