Abstract:

Biofilms are the form of life for great majority of oral bacteria and contribute to various oral diseases. To maintain oral health a balance between the human host and the microbes is essential. The excessive formation of oral biofilm results in intraoral diseases such as dental caries, gingivitis and periodontitis. The ability of pathogenic bacteria to form a biofilm increase their resistance to antibiotics. The most commonly pathogenic bacteria found in oral biofilms are methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Staphylococcus epidermidis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Streptococcus mutans. The molecular understanding of the formation and organisation of oral biofilms has just begun to emerge. The chapter focuses on oral pathobionts as commensals of oral biofilms and how they cause disease and various methods to study these oral biofilms.
