of Streptococcus mutans.
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).

Physical and biochemical studies of Streptococcus mutans sediments suggest new factors linking the cariogenicity
of plaque with its extracellular polysaccharide content.
Erosive and cariogenicity
potential of pediatric drugs: study of physicochemical parameters.
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 .
Study on properties of k strains support their lower cariogenicity
(19) and its ability to survive for longer periods in blood, due to resistance to phagocytosis (48).
Palmer et al found food frequency, cariogenicity
and bacterial pathogenesis to be associated with S-ECC and caries recurrence.
Parallel factors to be considered are individual's oral hygiene, cariogenicity
of the diet, malnutrition, genetic predisposition, fluoride experience during tooth development, and ingestion of certain types of medication.
