Dysbiosis is a new way to understand oral disease like caries, periodontitis, gingivitis, and candidiasis. microbes are smart, but dental professionals need to be smarter. While traditional approaches to deal with oral pathogens have merit, current research shows there are other chemical and mechanical pathways to disrupt biofilm and restore healthy pH levels. It is time to learn about non-antibiotic strategies that target periodontal pathogens.
