Abstract:

The aim & objective of the study is to identify the Carriage rate of Streptococcus mutans from five anatomical surfaces of oral cavity of Type II Diabetes Mellitus and Non Diabetic population & to compare carriage rate Streptococcus mutans of Type II against Non Diabetic population. Swabs were collected from five different anatomical sites of the oral cavity from Type II and Non Diabetic patients of 30 each. Samples were confirmed for the species and then inoculated in Mitis Salivaris Agar to assess the Frequency of isolation and Colony Forming Units (CFU) of Streptococcus mutans. Observation of the study revealed that the Frequency of Isolation and Colony Forming Units were high in patients with Type II Diabetes Mellitus when compared to that of Non Diabetes Mellitus subjects.


Keywords: Type II Diabetes Mellitus, Streptococcus mutans, Colony Forming Units,   Carriage rate, Oral Microbial Flora.
