In the case of caries, as a result of ferment of dietary carbohydrates rapidly and reduced pH, accelerating tooth demineralization, frequent acid environment attracts an acidogenic and aciduric microflora (Burne et al., 2009; Liu et al., 2012).
When the acidogenic bacteria reduce pH of the calculus, demineralization occurs.
mutans colonization, although for not being acidogenic or aciduric, they do not directly act in tooth enamel demineralization (Alves et al., 2010).
To restrain the growth of bacteria and simultaneously to selective enriched [H.sub.2] producing acidogenic bacteria, 50 ml of various industrial wastes were subjected to cyclic pretreatment sequences (four times) changing between heat-shock at 100[degrees]C by keeping in oven for 2 h and acid by adjusting the pH of the content to pH 3 using 88% Orthophosphoric acid and kept for 24 h.

Kamran Azim said that the research on this topic has been done first time in Pakistan which revealed that the increased abundance of acidogenic bacteria in the oral cavity of diabetic patients.
Kamran Azim said that the research on this topic has been done first time in Pakistan which revealed that the increased abundance of 'acidogenic' bacteria in the oral cavity of diabetic patients.
The known risk factors for caries include intraoral high count of acidogenic and cariogenic bacteria, poor quantity and quality of saliva, susceptible tooth surface, presence of faulty dental restorations, inadequate brushing habits, high sugar intake and poor knowledge and attitude towards oral hygiene, etc.
For pH, there was a substantial reduction in the treatment AIS + FW (from 7.16 to 5.38), indicating acidification of the medium and presence of acidogenic microorganisms, resulting in lower methane production and probably higher carbon dioxide production.
