Entamoeba gingivalis is an opportunistic Amoebozoa (citation needed) (reported by some as an effect of disease; not a cause (hence status as a commensal)) and is the first amoeba in humans to be described. It is found in the mouth inside the gingival pocket biofilm near the base of the teeth, and in periodontal pockets. Entamoeba gingivalis is found in 95% of people with gum disease and.
Entamoeba gingivalis (Fig. 4-5) is cosmopolitan in distribution, commonly found in the tartar and debris associated with the gingival tissues of the mouth.It was the first parasitic amoeba reported in humans (Gros, 1849). There is little indication that it is pathogenic, and, while it abounds in people with unhealthy oral conditions (i.e., gingivitis or periodontitis), a cause and effect.
Others such as Entamoeba coli (not to be confused with Escherichia coli) and Entamoeba dispar are harmless. With the exception of Entamoeba gingivalis, which lives in the mouth, and E. moshkovskii, which is frequently isolated from river and lake sediments, all Entamoeba species are found in the intestines of the animals they infect.The protozoan Entamoeba gingivalis resides in the oral cavity and is frequently observed in the periodontal pockets of humans and pets. This species of Entamoeba is closely related to the human pathogen Entamoeba histolytica, the agent of amoebiasis. Although E. gingivalis is highly enriched in people with periodontitis (a disease in which inflammation and bone loss correlate with changes in.Life cycle Entamoeba gingivalis, as the name implies typically lives around the gumline of the teeth in the tartar and gingval pokets of unhealthy muouths. In addition, the E. gingivalis trophozoites have been known to inhabit the tonsillar crypts and the bronchial mucus. it is particularly important to diagnose E. gingivalis and E. histolytica correctly because both organisms may be found in.

Entamoeba, protozoan genus of the rhizopodian order Amoebida. Most species are parasitic in the intestines of many vertebrates, including humans; E. histolytica is the cause of human amebic dysentery. The cell nucleus, which is distinctive for the genus, contains a central body, the endosome, and.Read More

The article focuses on the role of entamoeba gingivalis in periodontal disease, oral amoebiasis. Entamoeba gingivalis is regarded by dentists and parasitologists as a nonpathogenic organism of no importance in the causation of periodontal or other disease and even beneficial as a scavenger of cellular debris and bacteria.Read More
Background: Entamoeba gingivalis was the first commensal parasite detected in the oral cavity of humans, and a high incidence has been reported in patients with poor oral hygiene. The current study aimed to investigate the association of Entamoeba gingivalis with gingivitis and periodontitis among Egyptian subjects. Methods: A total of 120 plaque samples were collected for this case-control.Read More
In this study, a total of 426 human faecal samples were examined for the presence of Entamoeba histolytica, Entamoeba dispar, Entamoeba moshkovskii infection via a combination of microscopic examination and nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) targeting 16S ribosomal RNA of Entamoeba species. Faecal sample were collected from 426 participants in five rural villages in Peninsular Malaysia.Read More
