Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study is to analyze the inhibitory potential of Streptococcus salivarius isolates from the saliva and dorsum of the tongue of adults on Enterococcal faecalis American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) 29212. Methods: Deferred antagonism and agar well diffusion methods were used to analyze the potential of S. salivarius to inhibit E. faecalis growth with S. salivarius ATCC 13419 as the positive control. Result: The maximum inhibitor diameter for each isolation was 11.17 mm at 10 10 CFU for the dorsum of tongue isolates and 8.17 mm at 10 9 CFU for saliva isolates. Conclusions: Clinical S. salivarius isolates from the dorsum of tongue had greater potential for inhibiting E. faecalis growth compared to the saliva isolates and control bacteria.
