This test measures the amount of S. mutans (Streptococcus mutans) in your mouth. S. mutans play a major role in causing tooth decay. Scientific studies have found that the more S. mutans in your mouth, the more likely you would be to develop tooth decay.

Note that this test is only an assessment of your risk of developing tooth decay, and does not provide a diagnosis of or treatment for tooth decay.
