Oral Probiotics

Oral Probiotics

Support of Healthy Teeth and Gums

There is an entire category of products that is underutilized in the dental profession — oral probiotics. Oral probiotics is utilized by the team at Dental Solutions as they have the potential to make a significant impact on oral health, and systemic health. True oral probiotics use oral bacteria rather than intestinal bacteria, and these bacteria are nonpathogenic. Probiotics work by replacing existing disease-causing bacteria with harmless bacteria.

Reducing Tooth Decay Naturally

The sites on the teeth and gums occupied by the probiotic bacteria reduce the surface area available for disease-causing bacterial colonization. Furthermore, they also compete for nutrients.

The bacteria are non-acid-producing, so when they crowd out S. mutans and other cariogenic or decay inducing bacteria, decay incidence is reduced.

Reducing Periodontal Gum Disease Naturally

Oral Probiotics reduce the repopulation of caries-causing and periodontal bacteria gives the patient a fighting chance to remain healthy. Probiotics are also ideally used in periodontally healthy patients, especially those with a family history of periodontal disease. The optimal time to take the probiotic mint is in the evening, following brushing and flossing.

Whole Body and Holistic Benefits

A correlation exists between periodontal disease and other diseases and conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and rheumatoid arthritis, among many others. Reducing the number of pathogenic bacteria, along with the oral contribution to the total inflammatory burden in the body, by consistently and effectively controlling periodontal disease can only result in better patient health. As scientific investigations continue to reveal, the connection between the oral microbiota and health may not be limited to teeth and gums. Some researchers propose that oral/dental health may be intimately linked to systemic health. In fact, maintaining good oral hygiene, supporting a healthy balance of oral microorganisms, and managing plaque accumulation may prove to be important upstream factors that influence cardiovascular health, erectile function, glucose/ insulin metabolism, and even joint health.

ProbioMax DDS™

Oral Probiotics for Dental Health*

ProbioMax DDS™ is a chewable probiotic designed to activate in the oral cavity for support of healthy teeth and gums. As you chew the peppermint-flavored tablet, it releases the safe and powerful DDS-18™ strain ofStreptococcus salivarius—a beneficial bacterium that normally occurs in a healthy oral cavity. S salivarius DDS-18 then attaches to cells in the oral cavity and colonizes, positively affecting the bacterial population therein and naturally defending the teeth and gums. ProbioMax DDS can be used as a complementary addition to your daily oral and dental health regimen.*
