Description In oral microbiota research, saliva is often the biological material of choice. To avoid bias in the results, it is necessary to take into account all factors that affect the saliva sample. The aim of this project was to compare whether the condition of toothbrushing, food consumption, and varying time spacing between these factors can influence the bacterial profile of a saliva sample. The study suggests that the time between tooth brushing and food consumption has an impact on the resulting bacterial profiles in saliva and may influence the results of the study.
