Abstract

Objectives: The objective of this study analyzes the effect of propolis extract and propolis candies on Streptococcus sobrinus growth. Methods: S. sobrinus was exposed to propolis extract and propolis candies. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) were determined through spectrophotometric analysis and the S. sobrinus colonies were counted using the standard plate counted method. Result: MIC was 5% and MBC was 10%. S. sobrinus colonies decreased after exposure to propolis extract and propolis candies. Conclusions: Propolis extract and propolis candies could inhibit the growth of S. sobrinus.
