Streptococcus mutans (Streptococcus mutans) is a gram positive, nonmotile, facultative anaerobe thriving in temperatures ranging from 18-40 degrees Celsius. SEM X6000

The bacteria Streptococcus mutans is a part of the normal flora of bacteria found in the mouth. Strep mutans is a leading cause of dental decay. It becomes a problem when dietary sucrose (sugar) is left in the mouth for prolonged amounts of time and the bacteria converts the sucrose to acid which causes tooth enamel decay. Strep mutans also produce a sticky polysaccharide called dextran that adheres bacteria to the teeth which causes further decay.
