Microbiological screening for cariogenic bacteria in children 9 to 36 months of age

Microbiological screening for cariogenic bacteria in children 9 to 36 months of age

Pediatric Dentistry 26(3): 231-239

Purpose: The objective of this Study was to evaluate sampling methods for recovery of mutans streptococci (MS) and lactobacilli (LB) in children 9 to 36 months of age. Methods: Tongue and plaque specimens collected on cotton swabs and Stimulated saliva were diluted and plated on selective and nonselective media. Tongue specimens on a swab and mouth mirror were inoculated directly on selective agar media (MS only).
