This study aims to test the antibiotic resistance ofstreptococcus mutants, one of the major causes of dental caries for Iraqi patients of different ages. This study focuses on routine antibiotics used as a treatment for the patient suffering from dental caries and demonstrates whether these bacteria acquired resistance against these antibiotics or not. This study showed thatstreptococcus mutantsisolates from different patients have an approximately equal ratio of resistance to the routine antibiotics used to treat dental caries, such as amoxicillin, cefixime, and azithromycin.This study is based on the disc diffusion method for diagnosing antibiotic resistance. This study targeted patients chosen randomly from different medical care centers in Baghdad, especially in Al-karkh district, to show that the minimum inhibitory concentration MIC of different isolates ofstreptococcus mutantshave relative sensitivity to ceftriaxone and resistance to amoxicillin which can enhance more studies for controlling the antibiotics abused.
