Understanding Your Oral Microbiome

Did you know that no matter how much you brush your teeth, your mouth is filled with communities of bacteria? When not handled properly through good oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings, these microbes can damage your teeth. Watch this video to learn more.

The many microbe species that live in your mouth are what scientists refer to as your core microbiome. Many of these bacteria are harmless to your health, and some are even beneficial. However, when the level microbes in your mouth get out of balance, this can lead to problems like cavities and gingivitis.
