    There are hundreds of different types of bacteria in the human mouth, making a human bite one of the most dangerous bites of any of the animal kingdom. Streptococcus mutans, streptococcus pyogenes, actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, porphyromona gingivalis, etc. There are way too many to list here, but I hope this helps.

    I never thought I'd say this, but Bamma is right and he gave a good resource. Slapshot's right, too. Strep mutans is the #1 contributing to tooth decay, though, Dr Hector.

    slapshot is right... there´s a bunchload of ´em, the one responsible for tooth decay is a lactobacillus among others, and the ones for periodontal disease are much more aggressive and work often without oxygen (anaerobes)
