The oral microbiota is a key factor in oral health. It is well established that dysbiosis of the oral microbiota results in the manifestation of oral diseases such as caries and periodontitis. One of the essential tasks in oral health care is to maintain oral symbiosis in order to anticipate the global burden of diseases and the associated costs of caries and periodontal diseases. The maintenance of a symbiotic microbiota that passes through the control of dental plaque is a priority. Therefore, it is necessary to control dental plaque as a research priority. Because of their strong community synergism, biofilm-forming oral bacteria have been extensively studied, and new findings on pathogen and bacterial profiles in health and disease states have recently been brought to light, with the keystone pathogen concept in explaining the development of dysbiotic communities. Thus, the beneficial effects of the microbiome, the importance of balance, the role of host factors in dysbiosis, and the development of preventive and therapeutic strategies to maintain the balance of the oral microbiota constitute the essential framework of this Special Issue.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide insight into the recent advances in the field of new diagnostic and treatment techniques for the oral microbiota and related diseases induced by dysbiosis. Potential topics of interest of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, in vitro and clinical research on oral health, oral pathology, oral surgery and oral microbiology.
Studies incorporating a new approach or providing novel information are of higher priority. Systematic and narrative reviews in the field of dentistry mainly on infectious diseases are also welcome.
It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Pathogens is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
