The oral microbiome is a dynamic ecosystem that is both a gateway and a mirror to the rest of the human body. Comprised of millions of bacterial, fungal, and viral communities, the oral cavity is in constant fluctuation between balance and imbalance of symbiotic (health-promoting) and pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria. Prolonged imbalance of the oral microbiome favoring pathogenic bacteria can result in oral diseases such as dental caries and gum disease.
Newest research connecting the oral microbiome to systemic diseases such as heart and lung diseases, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and even possibly Alzheimer’s disease, has shed new light on the importance of oral health.
Joining the 2nd AIRS International Conference on Genomics and Microbiomics in Barcelona, DrBonnie presents new discoveries in research, technology, and upcoming companies focusing on bringing oral care to the forefront of health and well-being.
