Abstract

The human oral cavity is home to a wide variety of unique microorganisms. Studies have shown that the human oral microbiome has a direct correlation to human health. The inhabitants of the human oral flora coexist together in order to ward off unwanted external factors. Even though the oral microbiome also has great adaptability and fluctuality to external and internal stimulus, there are physical and chemical changes that can cause a disruption in the oral microbiome which can lead to several oral diseases. The relationship between the microorganisms within the human oral flora and the host yields significant data on the wellness of oral health. This research will be focused on the human oral microbiome and its impact on oral health. (Faculty Sponsor: Dr. Laura Hanson)
