AbstractStreptococcus mutans (S. mutans) has been identified as a major etiologic agent of human dental caries and forms a significant proportion of oral streptococci in carious lesions. This study investigates the correlation of surface properties (effect of contact angle [CA] and free surface energy) on three restorative materials (zirconia, nickel–chromium–molybdenum alloy and composites) used in dental prosthetics with bacterial adhesion to S. mutans. Ten samples of each material (zirconia,doi:10.1515/chem-2020-0070 fatcat:dnht4e7t5jf37kvqujgr3f6a2u
