Oral microbiology deals with the discomfort and distress caused by the oral microbes. For example, tooth decay which is caused by the bacteria is one of the most common human diseases which are painful. The role of oral microorganisms includes dental caries and periodontal disease. Bacteria occupy the ecological niche provided by both the tooth surface. However, a highly efficient innate host defense system monitors the bacterial colonization and prevents bacterial invasion of local tissues. Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
