OBJECTIVES Polymerized resin composites and nonpolymerized monomers are reported to accelerate bacterial growth. Furthermore, in vivo, resin composite restorations accumulate more plaque than other restorative materials. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that bacteria-composite surface interaction causes changes in surface-topography. METHODS Resin composite disks were polymerized between two glass slides. Streptococcus mutans cells were brought in contact with and grown on… CONTINUE READING
