The content of caries bacteria – Streptococcus mutans – in mixed saliva and dental plaque was evaluated through semiquantitative microbiological investigation in children aged 12–15 years with dental and alveolar anomalies. Controlled biological criteria for the risk of development and growth of the intensity of caries: Streptococcus mutans concentration of 1×106 CFU/m were detected. Proved the feasibility of an integrated approach in the assessment of cariogenic situation, taking into account equally clinical performance of organs and tissues of the oral cavity, the physico-chemical parameters of oral liquid, tooth enamel and dental plaque. The expediency of integrated approach when evaluating cariogenic situation taking into account equally the clinical parameters of organs and tissues of the oral cavity and also physical and chemical parameters of the oral fluid, the enamel of the teeth and dental plaque.
