Every human body contains a personalized microbiome that is essential to maintaining health but capable of eliciting disease. The oral microbiome is particularly imperative to health because it can cause both oral and systemic disease. The oral microbiome rests within biofilms throughout the oral cavity, forming an ecosystem that maintains health when in equilibrium. However, certain ecological shifts in the microbiome allow pathogens to manifest and cause disease. Severe forms of oral disease… 
Probing the diversity of healthy oral microbiome with bioinformatics approaches
The human oral cavity contains a highly personalized microbiome essential to maintaining health, but capable of causing oral and systemic diseases. Thus, an in-depth definition of “healthy oral
The oral microbiota – a mechanistic role for systemic diseases
TLDR
The scientific evidence supporting the association that endogenous and exogenous factors (diet, smoking, drinking, socioeconomic status, antibiotics use and pregnancy) modulate oral microbiota is reviewed.
The Oral Microbiome and Its Relationship to Genomics and Oral Disease
TLDR
Improved technologies and bioinformatics tools are now available to characterize the oral microbiome, in terms of type and distribution of species, gene enrichments and enrichment of functional metabolic pathways, and these data are now being used to better understand host gene-environmental interactions in the etiology of dental and systemic disease.
The oral microbiome – an update for oral healthcare professionals
TLDR
An update on the current knowledge of the oral microbiome in health and disease is given and implications for modern-day oral healthcare are discussed.
The Oral Microbiome of Children: Development, Disease, and Implications Beyond Oral Health
TLDR
The factors that impact development of the oral microbiome and explore oral markers of disease, with a focus on the early oral cavity are discussed and how oral microbiomes—at the community level—could provide improved assessment in individuals and populations at risk are discussed.
Chapter 9 – Metagenomics: Implications in Oral Health and Disease
TLDR
This chapter provides a robust introduction to oral specific commensals and pathogens, composition of the oral microbiome, and their implications in enhancing health and developing various diseases.
Application of high-throughput sequencing in understanding human oral microbiome related with health and disease
TLDR
This review describes the application of high-throughput sequencing for characterization of oral microbiota and analyzing the changes of the microbiome in the states of health or disease.
INFLUENCE OF ORAL MICROBIOME ON HUMAN HEALTH: AN OVERVIEW
TLDR
An overview of metagenomics and the human oral microbiome is given, providing a multidimensional picture of the microbiome community, revealing its genetic potential and metabolic activities.
Human oral microbiota and its modulation for oral health.
TLDR
Several new methods based on the modulation of the microbiome that aim at maintaining and reestablishing a healthy oral ecosystem have been developed.
Oral microbiomes: more and more importance in oral cavity and whole body
TLDR
Oral microbiomes play an important role in the human microbial community and human health, and the use of recently developed molecular methods has greatly expanded the knowledge of the composition and function of the oral microbiome in health and disease.

TLDR
Clinical guidelines and recommendations have been presented to control oral microbiota in patients with malignant disease, but in this area the scientific evidence is weak and more controlled studies are needed for further conclusion.
Should the Human Microbiome Be Considered When Developing Vaccines?
TLDR
The microbiota could be an underappreciated yet important player to consider in the development of vaccines, and also may help explain some of the discrepancies observed in vaccine efficacy in different populations around the world.
Control of oral biofilms.

TLDR
In this Perspective, therapeutic opportunities in the human microbiome are discussed and basic and translational research efforts have begun to focus on deciphering mechanisms of microbiome function and learning how to manipulate it to benefit human health.
Oral Biofilms: Emerging Concepts in Microbial Ecology
TLDR
This review will discuss emerging concepts in microbial ecology and how they relate to oral biofilm development and the treatment of oral diseases, and how that relates to inter-individual variation.
Oral microbial communities in sickness and in health.
TLDR
It is becoming more apparent that the oral microbes comprise a complex community, and that oral health or disease depends on the interface between the host and the microbial community as a whole.
Defining the healthy "core microbiome" of oral microbial communities
TLDR
It is shown that a major proportion of bacterial sequences of unrelated healthy individuals is identical, supporting the concept of a core microbiome at health.
