Oral Microbiome Mapping




The oral microbiome is identified as one of the significant microbial ecosystems in the human body and has the potential to impact our health in various ways. Dysbiosis in the oral microbiome can have both local effects (e.g., dental caries, periodontitis, gingivitis, oral cancers), as well as systemic effects (e.g., neurodegeneration, diabetes, cardiovascular disease).

Systemic diseases can arise when pathogenic bacteria in the oral cavity translocate into the gut in the presence of oral-gut barrier disruption. Fortunately, many unfavorable symptoms can be reversed by re-establishing symbiosis in the oral microbiome through dietary and lifestyle changes.
