Entamoeba gingivalis is a protozoan that resides in the oral cavity. Using molecular biology techniques, we identified a novel organism that. The protozoan Entamoeba gingivalis resides in the oral cavity and is frequently observed in the periodontal pockets of humans and pets. The amoeba Entamoeba gingivalis is the most common micro-organism found in all cases of periodontal diseases. It’s presence is easy to confirm by using a.
