A transition from a healthy oral microbiome to a pathogenic microbiome causes an imbalance of oral homeostasis known as dysbiosis, which is an important concept to understand most oral diseases.In this presentation, Juliette will explore the current knowledge surrounding the function that oral microbes play in health and disease and how maintaining a healthy and varied microbiome supports both oral and systemic health.After this presentation you will be able to:

    • Understand the role the oral microbiome plays in health and disease.
    • Be aware of the factors that contribute to dysbiosis and inflammatory diseases.
    • Incorporate treatments that protect and support a healthy microbiome.
