Learn About The Human Mouth
One of the most dangerous bites in the animal kingdom is ours — the human mouth contains bacteria and other microbes that can be dangerous even to us. Throughout our evolution as humans, our diet has changed greatly, and so the microbiome inside our mouths has changed, too. These changes aren’t always for the better: the mouth of a modern American has an excessively large population of mutated streptococcus, as well as porphyromonas gingivalis, two known oral pathogens known to encourage low diversity in beneficial bacteria and a rise in harmful ones. Learn more about how the mouth works, and how you can decipher health concerns by reading mouth pathology tests.
What We See
Finding a larger presence of bacteria like porphyromonas gingivalis or streptococcus in saliva can mean something else is going wrong. Scientific correlations have been found between a rise in these bacteria and diseases like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and type two diabetes. By detecting these pathogens early, you can predict what changes patients might need to make to avoid the dangers of diseases like this.
