Caries, a common oral disease, can cause defect of dental tissue, mainly attributed to Streptococcus mutans, Actinomyces viscosus, Lactobacillus and Streptococcus sanguis (Caufield and Griffen, 2005).

The biofilm plays an important role in the cause of tooth decay, the cariogenic microorganisms such as Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus sanguis, Streptococcus salivarius, Streptococcus mitis, Streptococcus oralis and Lactobacillus acidophilus play a vital role in the etiology of the dental caries (11).
rotunda to contain panduratin A, an active compound that is able to reduce the spread of Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus sanguis and Actinomyces viscosus in human mouth (Yanti et al., 2009).
This could be explained according to the fact that certain bacterial species have been proposed to be protective or beneficial to the host, including Streptococcus sanguis. It is typically found in high numbers in periodontal sites that don't demonstrate attachment loss, but in low numbers in sites with breakdown.
The streptococcal strains used in this study were from the Culture Collection of University of Goteborg (CCUG): Streptococcus mutans (CCUG 35176), Streptococcus salivarius (CCUG 11878), and Streptococcus sanguis (CCUG 17826).
