Over the past 20 years, considerable progress has been made in understanding the etiology and treatment of dental caries. However, dental caries still remains one of the most prevalent diseases in young children and continues to elicit significant medical, social, and economic consequences. A recent study uses a cohort of 20 children with severe early childhood caries, which were identified and described by mutans streptococci (MS) and other non-MS streptococci strains within carious sites, including both carious lesions and white spot lesions, and on noncarious surfaces. Read the analysis here.
