Abstract

This study evaluated the susceptibility to amine fluorides (AmFs) of planktonic and biofilm cultures of Streptococcus sanguis grown with and without sucrose. Cultures were incubated with AmFs (250 mg of fluoride liter(-1)) for I min. The susceptibility of biofilms was less than that of the planktonic form and was further decreased by growth in the presence of sucrose.
