Cariogenicity of dental carries involves the adherence of bacteria on the tooth followed by the formation of glycocalyx, a sticky glucan that is synthesized by the action of the bacterial enzyme glucosyl transferase on sucrose (Ferrazzano et al, 2011).

The bacteria not only metabolize sugars to produce lactic acid that attacks the dental enamel, but also synthesize extracellular polysaccharides, mainly dextran, a component of the plaque, thus reinforcing cariogenicity of easily assimilated carbohydrates [6].
