What is Oral Microbiology?

Oral microbiology is the study of microorganisms (also referred to as microbiota) that exist and occur within the oral orifice, their actions and their interactions with other oral microorganismsand host. Similarly to oral medicine, oral microbiology focuses on oral health aspects outside of regular dentistry.

What do Oral Microbiology Experts do?

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.
