SALIVA-CHECK MUTANS

Monitor & Identify Streptococcus Mutans

About
 
SALIVA-CHECK MUTANS tests for a very specific bacteria known as streptococcus mutans. Please note, there are many bacteria that play a role in caries (ex: Atopobium, Propionibacterium and Lactobacillus bacteria); it is also highly dependent upon geography and age groups. For example, root caries is caused by Actinomyces viscosus; so the SALIVA-CHECK MUTANS test would not give a positive result. For early childhood caries S. Mutansare not involved, S. Mutansare usually are only present in plaque found on early lesions, once the lesions cavitate other bacteria take over and S. Mutans counts drop. Why test your patients' Streptococcus mutans level? The Streptococcus mutans bacterial species plays a leading role in the initiation of dental caries. When used with other clinical information, salivary levels of this bacterium is useful for caries risk assessment in patients.

Features

 Accurate results in just 15 minutes

Using a very specific immunochromatography process, SALIVA-CHECK MUTANS is not reliant on bacteria growth; meaning that incubators or other devices are not needed. Therefore, the traditional culture test is no longer necessary and accurate results are available in 15 minutes. Accuracy is possible as the test strip contains 2 monoclonal antibodies that selectively detect only the S. mutans species; meaning no other bacteria contaminates the results. In cases of positive results, a red line is shown on the test (T) line; meaning the patient has a level of S. mutans equal to or above 500 000 colony forming units per ml (cfu/ml) saliva.

 Who to test:

  • New patients – particularly children and the elderly
  • Expecting parents or guardians, to prevent transmission
  • Patients with lower natural oral protection because of low salivary flow
  • Patients undergoing periodontal treatment due to higher risk of root surface caries
  • Patients with an acidic diet, low oral pH or high frequency of fermentable carbohydrates
  • Patients before their extensive restorative treatment in order to avoid recurrence of cavitations


*Patients identified with high levels of Streptococcus mutans may benefit from a treatment program that includes using MI Paste® or MI Paste Plus®
