ABSTRACT:
Aim: To review about oral biofilms concept in microbial ecology. Objective : To analyse the various oral biofilms development and the diseases caused by it. Background: The bacteria in the biofilm are always metabolically active, causing fluctuations in pH. These fluctuations may cause a loss of mineral from the tooth when the pH is dropping or a gain of mineral when the pH is increasing. The cumulative result of these de- and re-mineralization processes may be a net loss of mineral, leading to dissolution of the dental hard tissues and the formation of a caries lesion. Reason: Oral biofilms develop under a range of different conditions and different enviroments. Most of the conditions under which oral biofilms develop tightly linked to overal health and biology of the host.
