Objective: Understand whether the collection site (toothless or toothless) influences the frequency of bacteria in the oral cavity. It was performed as an observational, prospective, and cross-sectional study. Methods: Clinical samples of the oral surfaces of the teeth and/or cheek mucosa were collected in the oral cavity of 37 patients who underwent elective cardiac surgery in the preoperative period from May to July 2019. The clinical samples collected were subjected to identification of colonies and antimicrobial sensitivity tests. Results: It was observed that regardless of whether the collection site is toothless or toothless, the microbial profile, socio-demographic variables, comorbidities, and risk factors do not statistically influence the choice of the collection site. Conclusions: there wasn’t statistical difference between the strains found at the collection sites. Practical Implications: the result found is relevant for other researchers that will work with oral cavity collections since the chosen collection site will not influence the frequency of strains found.
