Bakterien im Mund - Freund oder Feind?

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisReviewForskningpeer review

The human body is colonized by a tremendous
amount of microorganisms. For more than a century,
research has mainly focused on the diseases caused
by bacteria, fungi and viruses. The past 2 decades, however,
have seen a rise in studies investigating the normal
human microbiota and its contribution to host physiology.
In particular, the importance of the intestinal microbiota
for human metabolism and immune response has
been established. Recent research shows that not only
the intestinal, but also the oral microbiota plays an important
role in human metabolism. A growing body of
evidence demonstrates that bacteria in the oral cavity
are involved in nitrate cycling and thus contribute to
blood pressure regulation. In the light of these findings,
the routine administration of antiseptic mouth rinses in
the absence of oral disease should be reconsidered.
