Gum inflammation is driven by harmful bacteria living in your mouth

Your mouth is filled with bacteria, fungi, and viruses - collectively called the oral microbiome! Some of these microbes are beneficial and can contribute to good oral health. Others are pathogenic and cause damage, leading to painful & visible symptoms of disease.

The balance of helpful & harmful microbes in your oral microbiome provides insight into your oral health!
