The current treatment and prevention of oral disorders follow a very sectoral control and procedures considering
mouth and its structures as system completely independent from the rest of the body. The main therapeutic approach is
carried out on just to keep the levels of oral bacteria and hygiene in an acceptable range compatible with one-way vision of
oral-mouth health completely separated from a systemic microbial homeostasis (eubiosis vs dysbiosis). This can negatively
impact on the diagnosis of more complex systemic disease and its progression. Dysbiosis is consequence of oral and gut
microbiota unbalance with consequences, as reported in current literature, in cardio vascular disease, diabetes mellitus,
rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease. Likewise, there is the need to highlight and develop a novel philosophical
approach in the treatments for oral diseases that will necessarily involve non-conventional approaches.
Keywords: periodontal disease, oral dysbiosis, gut dysbiosis, central nervous system (CNS) diseases; probiotics, macrophages.
