Periodontitis is a multifactorial disease that results in alveolar bone loss and attachment loss. Plaque biofilm and calculus were the basic culprits that creates the inflammatory state and causes host and microbial interactions within the periodontium. There are several species present within the oral cavity which makes necessary arrangements for survival within the host. Various modes of communication were played by these gram positive and negative species so that they can act together against the single host i.e., human. They release many substances which inhibit the host substances and alter the immune system of host. Moreover, they also help the selective survival of adjacent microbial species. Present review gives a brief description of some modes of communication within in oral biofilm, methods to study the bacterial interactions and controlled community-based pathogenesis of oral microbiota.
