Germs in mouth

Reply Tue 21 Feb, 2017 08:44 am
I realise this is a strange question...if you don't brush your teeth in 48 hours and you accidently spit on someone, are you likely to pass on more harmful germs than you would if you hadn't have brushed your teeth in 18 hours? I assume the germs multiply for sure, but the type of germs would stay the same .

The oral cavity hosts large numbers of microbiota but they tend to cling to the teeth and gums because if they were living freely in the saliva they would eventually be swallowed and killed by hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

Interesting - hadn't thought about that before! Makes sense that they wouldn't hang around freely in saliva! Thank you!

Girl, if you're really a girl, why welcome. And if so, how random and why
