This means microorganisms start multiplying again and form plaque on your teeth, hence brushing twice a day is important.
No abnormality.
It's fine, nothing needs to be done.
Aerobic means highly oxygenated environment .normal oral flora means the normal bacterial population and the colonies present in the mouth .the above statement explains that specimens or sample collected and groom in laboratory in culture medium under highly oxygenated environment. In 48 hrs these specimens have the capacity to grow ,multiply as much colonies as that present in the mouth .this is mainly to insist the fact that the the rate of multiplication of bacteria and other microorganisms is so high that even laboratory samples can outgrow the normal count in the mouth in 48 hours. Hence, brushing flossing and other oral hygiene measures must be taken to prevent such large amounts of bacterial population accumulating in mouth which otherwise may cause decay or gum diseases.
