Fluoride resistance in oral bacteria


13Oct2017 12:00 - 13:00

PhD defence ceremony

Fluoride has been used as the most effective anti-caries agent for over five decades. Prolonged exposure of oral bacteria to high concentrations of fluoride can lead to the development of fluoride resistance. Ying Liao describes a number of experiments focusing on phenotypic and genotypic characteristics of fluoride-resistant strains of ‘Streptococcus mutans’, which is the most studied cariogenic bacterial species.
