Just like our gut microbiome, the oral microbiome also thrives in an environment of diversity and beneficial bacteria for good oral and dental health. Oral microbiome contains archaea, protozoa, fungi and beneficial viruses. The oral micro biome produces a biofilm (shield) to protect the Intestines. Dysbiosis of oral micro biome due to lack of diversity or presence of harmful bacteria will cause dental issues and is implicated in the physiological effected beyond the mouth.
Oral microbiome dysbiosis is linked to the following diseases:
Increased risk of pregnancy gingivitis
Gut, immune, endocrine and nervous system diseases via the brain-gut axis
