Abstract

This work correlated the presence of oral streptococci in dental biofilm with clinical indexes of caries and oral hygiene in caries-active and caries-free children. S. mutans and/or S. sobrinus in the dental biofilm does not indicate a direct risk for developing dental caries.<br>Este trabalho correlacionou a presença de estreptococos orais no biofilme dental com índices clínicos de cárie dentária e higiene oral em crianças com alta e baixa atividade de cárie. S. mutans e/ou S. sobrinus no biofilme dental não significa o imediato desenvolvimento de lesões cariosas
