  The late 1800 witnessed various systemic diseases over powering the general health and well-being of the patients. It was then, that an eminent dental researcher, Willoughby D. Miller, established the important causal role of oral bacteria for dental caries (decay). He asserted through his research work published in Dental Cosmos, 1891, “during the last few years the conviction has grown continually stronger, among physicians as well as dentists, that the human mouth, as a gathering-place and incubator of diverse pathogenic germs, performs a significant role in the production of varied disorders of the body, and that if many diseases whose origin is enveloped in mystery could be traced to their source, they would be found to have originated in the oral cavity”. This revelation of the human mouth as a ‘focus of infection’ brought about a paradigm shift in dental treatment strategies [1].
