Simply put, oral disease is due to oral dysbiosis, and patients with a healthy oral microbiome (eubiosis) do not present with significant dental caries or periodontal disease. Dietary influences, especially the standard American diet, along with other environmental factors, may strongly affect the oral microbiome leading not only to oral dysbiosis but also to very serious systemic illness. This seminar summarizes the evolution of dietary influence, microbiome shifts, pathobiont development, and the resulting serious systemic consequences. In addition, effective and easily implemented prebiotic and probiotic interventions will be discussed, and methodology explained.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn how diet influences microbiome development.
  • Understand the evolution of the microbiome/host (holobiont) .
  • Learn the evolution of pathogens and pathobionts.
  • Discover the prevention protocols to restore eubiosis.

This course is designed for dentists, hygienists, and assistants.
