Abstract :

Backgorund: Saliva contains several protein elements, exocrine proteins and antibodies, such as lactoferrin, sIgA, peroxidase, albumin,  polypeptides,  and  oligopeptides  that  contribute  to  the  defense  of  oral  mucosa  and  dental  pellicle  to  prevent  infection  caused by oral micropathogen, such as Candida albicans, Streptococcus mutans and Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (A.  actinomycetemcomitans). Those micropathogens have a role to change salivary pH as an indicator of oral disease activities. Purpose: This  study was aimed to analyze the changes of artificial saliva pH after interaction with S. mutans, C. albicans, and A. Actinomycetemcpmitans.  Methods: The materials used in this study consist of S. mutans (ATCC 31987), C. albicans (ATCC 10231), A. actinomycetemcomitans (ATTC 702 358), and artificial saliva. To examine the pH changes of artificial saliva, those three microbiotas were cultured and incubated for 24 hours. Results: The results showed that the interactions of S. mutans, C. albicans, and A. actinomycetemcomitans in the artificial saliva can change the salivary on neutral. There were no significant difference with the control treatment salivary pH 4, 5, 6, 8, and 9 (p>0.05). Similarly, there was also no significant difference when those three microorganism interacted each other in the artificial saliva (p<0.05). Conclusion: It can be concluded that the biological activity of S. mutans, C. albicans, and A. actinomycetemcomitans in artificial saliva can change the salivary pH into neutral. It indicates that those microbiotas mutually supported and cooperated in influencing the biological cycle of the oral cavity with salivary pH as an indicator.
