Dental calculus and the evolution of the human oral microbiome


Warinner, Christina (2016). Dental calculus and the evolution of the human oral microbiome. Journal of the California Dental Association, 44(7):411-420.

Abstract

Characterizing the evolution of the oral microbiome is a challenging, but increasingly feasible, task. Recently, dental calculus has been shown to preserve ancient biomolecules from the oral microbiota, host tissues and diet for tens of thousands of years. As such, it provides a unique window into the ancestral oral microbiome. This article reviews recent advancements in ancient dental calculus research and emerging insights into the evolution and ecology of the human oral microbiome.
