Fig. 1 Transition of salivary mutans streptococci scores when posttreatment levels were compared with the baseline in the different experimental groups. Decreased scores=1–3 steps under baseline; unchanged score = same as baseline; increased score = 1 step over baseline. The distribution in group D (control) was significantly different (p<0.
bacteria. The aim of this study was to determine ex vivo the antibacterial properties of ethanol extract of propolis (EEP), collected in Poland, against the main cariogenic bacteria: salivary mutans streptococci and lactobacilli. The isolation of mutans streptococci group bacteria (MS) and Lactobacillus spp. (LB) from stimulated saliva was performed by in-office CRT bacteria dip slide test. The broth diffusion method and AlamarBlue assay were used to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of EEP, with the estimation of its minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC).
