BARBOZA-SOLIS, Cristina  and  ACUNA-AMADOR, Luis Alberto. The oral microbiota: a literature review for updating profesional s in dentistry-Part II. Odovtos [online]. 2021, vol.23, n.3, pp.45-56. ISSN 2215-3411.

In the first part of this literature review, published in October 2019 in this journal, we summarized the conceptual background of the oral microbiota, and the main methods used in microbiology to characterize oral organisms. We also presented the most studied bacteria species in the oral microbiota. In this second part, we will discuss the evidence regarding the biological plausibility linking the oral microbiota dysbiosis and systemic diseases, as well as the main factors and mechanisms suspected in this association.
