Newmarket Dentists Will Help You Deal with Bad Bacteria in the Mouth

A mutiny by bad bacteria in your mouth is the last thing you and caring Newmarket dentists would want to happen. Unfortunately, a well-known bacterium is capable of just that.

A recent study by University of Pennsylvania researchers found out that P. gingivalis, a species of bacteria responsible for periodontitis, can neutralize immune cells by disrupting their ability to kill germs while preserving their ability to trigger an inflammatory response. This allows other bad bacteria to take over your mouth in sheer numbers, leading to a phenomenon known as dysbiosis.

While P. gingivalis is not as numerous as most oral bacteria, its action on the mouth can be quite deadly.
