Ecological dynamics of oral microbial communities

J.E. Koopman

Research output: PhD ThesisPhD-Thesis - Research and graduation internal


The microbiota of the oral cavity have been a topic of research for quite some years. Yet, this research was mostly focused on isolated pathogenic species, with limited attention for the ecosystem and what a healthy ecosystem encompasses.
The general aim of this thesis was to investigate the processes that underlie the oral ecosystem with a special interest in maintaining or obtaining a healthy state. This research includes clinical as well as in vitro research and addresses the effects of fluoride, arginine and nitrate on oral microbiota.
