"If successful, this would be a huge step forward in the dental and general health of our nursing home patients as well as their quality of life," said John Voytas, M.D., a geriatric medicine specialist who is leading the research at Beaumont.

About Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacillus casei

There are approximately 700 types of bacteria in the human mouth. While most are harmless, two of the most common - Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans) and Lactobacillus casei - are considered the primary culprits in tooth decay. They live in a biofilm (plaque) that adheres to the teeth, consume sugar and release acid that erodes tooth enamel, causing decay. Regular brushing and flossing, along with dental checkups, can help to keep S. mutans and Lactobacillus casei in check.
