The study of the microorganisms of the oral cavity and their interactions between oral microorganisms or with the host is generally known as Oral Microbiology. The growth of characteristics microorganisms depends on the environment present in the human mouth found there. Oral bacteria have evolved mechanisms to sense their environment and modify the host. Water, nutrients as well as a moderate temperature are some of the common source provided for the survival of these microbes. The resident microbes present in the mouth adhere to the teeth and gums to resist the mechanical flushing from the mouth to stomach. After reaching to stomach the acid-sensitive microbes are destroyed by hydrochloric acid.
