Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a Gram-negative, microaerophillic, spiral bacterium. The prevalence of H. pylori infection was estimated to range from 40% to 80% and it varies widely. The advancement of biochemical techniques provided new information about the pathogenicity and virulence factors of H. pylori indicating a complex interaction of bacterial and host factors for infection by H. pylori. It is regarded as a serious and transmissible infectious disease linked to duodenal and gastric ulcers, gastric carcinoma, and also as a cofactor in the recurrence of aphthous ulceration. This article focuses on the pathogenesis, disease associations, and the orodental implications of H. pylori.
