Do you have persistent bad breath? Do you find plaque and tartar build-up on your teeth? Are your gums swollen or bleeding? If you answered yes to any of these, this could mean there is an imbalance in your oral microbiome. 

What does this mean?

Like the gut, your mouth hosts a community of microorganisms including bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoa. Research now shows a connection between the colonies of microbes in your mouth and those in your gut. Your mouth is also the first phase of the digestion process and finally is key to the production of nitrous oxide which among others has an impact on the whole vascular system. Just like with the gut, the health of the oral microbiome can and will impact overall health. That means that while poor dental hygiene will likely lead to oral issues like gingivitis and periodontal disease, the problems go much deeper. Imbalanced oral ecosystems may be linked to everything from type 2 diabetes and stroke to certain cancers, rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease.


How an oral probiotic can help

Plaque Prevention

As the saying goes, prevention is worth an ounce of cure. Studies have shown that the good bacteria introduced by oral probiotics may prevent the development of plaque. A 2016 study by the American Society for Microbiology found that probiotic bacteria stopped the growth of bacteria that makes plaque.

No More Bad Breath

Bad breath is often the result of bacteria in the oral cavity. Oral probiotics bring balance to the oral microbiome. That can reduce the impact of the bad bacteria that may cause bad breath.

Managing Inflammation and Symptoms of Gingivitis

Symptoms of gingivitis include swollen and tender gums as well as sensitive teeth. Research now suggests that oral probiotics could improve symptoms and reduce the inflammation associated with gum disease. 
Finally, as we think about our overall health, the mouth is where digestion begins. Making an oral probiotic like Biocidin Dentalflora a regular part of a probiotic regimen offers a foundation for keeping a balanced oral ecosystem.
