    The objectives of this study are to determine the DMFT index, and oral bacterial loading of Streptococcus mutans, in children afflicted with congenital heart disease (CHD) with children who were not afflicted with CHD. Using the methodology of the World Health Organization, decayed, missing filled teeth (DMFT) and permanent DMFT will be compared. Standard oral microbiological techniques were used to isolate S. mutans. S. mutans is known to be one of the pathogens that cause infective endocarditis; it is a major cariogenic pathogen that is a normal inhabitant of the oral cavity, it was detected at high frequencies and quantities in both heart valve tissues and atheromatous plaque samples in few studies. We undertook this study to determine the oral health status and bacterial loading of S. mutans, sp., of children with CHD with that of children who were not affected by any CHD.
