Probiotics for Oral Health

In this day and age of over use of antibiotics it is comforting to know that the science of Probiotics will be the next hero medicine. Probiotics are good bacteria that can be placed into the mouth through powder mouthwash or lozenges. Simply taking them every day, allows the Probiotics to be extremely effective against a wide range of bacteria that can cause bad breath, gum disease and tooth decay.

Not only will these Probiotics stop most mouth issues they also have the added benefit of gently whitening your teeth. This is because they by product from the Probiotics is a small amount of Hydrogen Peroxide, the same ingredient used in dental bleaching systems.

So taking a simple dose of Probiotic every day when you take your vitamins can lead to a much improved and healthy life. Try it and let me know what you think.

  1. Certainly there are a lot of probiotics available in the market. I got mine in the form of lozenges.

  2. The probiotics for mouth health must be specific for the mouth only. The normal once of acidophilus and bifidus that you see in capsule form and yoghurts will not work.

    I recommend the s.salivarius K12as the mouth probiotic that works the best. This was discovered in New Zealand by Professor John Tagg head of Microbiology at Otago University
