In a word: microbiome. The mouth is made up of millions of tiny organisms in a mix that is unique to you and you alone. Understanding this ecosystem is critical to understanding human biology as the human genome. Too science-y? Ok – let’s try to break it down as simply as possible.
You are a Superorganism! This does not mean you have the power to fly or turn invisible. It means that your body is the host to a community of organisms in addition to all your human cells. This community is referred to as the microbiome. You may have heard about “good” bacteria and “bad” bacteria for your gut. While it turns out that there are also good and bad bacteria for your mouth as well. Different parts of your body like your skin, gut, nose and mouth harbor distinct bacterial species. It is important to maintain this ecology in the healthy state and products that kill indiscriminately can open the door for disease causing species.
