Similarly to oral medicine, oral microbiology focuses on oral health aspects outside of regular dentistry.
An oral microbiology expert, often referred to as an oral microbiologist, will examine the conditions within your mouth and see how they are affecting the microorganisms within. The way in which most oral microbiologists investigate oral cavity conditions is by examining a sample given by the patient. From examining the samplefrom the oral cavity they will be able to determine what diseases or ailments you have or are likely to develop if your oral health remains untreated.
