The oral microbiome
explained

The oral microbiome

There are billions of micro-organisms living inside of us and this is called the human microbiome. The bacteria living inside our mouth is known as the oral microbiome. Most of these bacteria are harmless to us and many of them are beneficial too. Our lifestyle choices, like taking antibiotic treatments, smoking and using alcoholic mouthwash kill good bacteria as well as bad ones. This disturbs the natural balance and can cause dental issues like cavities, bad breath, gingivitis and periodontal problems. The great news is that we can keep our oral microbiome balanced and healthy with dental probiotics, boosting the good bacteria and getting rid of the ones which are not so good for us, as backed up by science.

Fortunately, most of these bacteria living inside our oral microbiome are harmless to us and there are some which are beneficial as well. Generally bad bacteria and good bacteria can live together without causing any problems.

Modern lifestyle choices and habits like taking antibiotic treatments, smoking, and alcoholic mouth washes kill good bacteria as well as bad ones disturbing this delicate balance. When the microbial balance is disturbed and we don’t have enough good bacteria, this is  called dysbiosis. Common dental problems like cavities, bad breath, gingivitis and periodontal problems all occur due to oral dysbiosis.

The great news is that we can keep our oral microbiome healthy and balanced through encouraging the growth of good bacteria and getting rid of the ones which are not beneficial to us. Taking dental probiotics is the best way to boost your good bacteria in your mouth, as backed up by science.

Lactobacillus parcasei is the probiotic specially selected for Luvbiotic toothpastes and mouthwash.

This probiotic strain offers the best protection available against dental caries and periodontal diseases.

There are number of clinical studies which demonstrate the efficacy of L.paracasei in establishing the bacterial balance for good oral health.

A Clinical study conducted by Li-Chuan concluded that L paracasei was effective in reducing bad bacteria and boosting the balance of good bacteria.  Oral administration over a period of 2 weeks demonstrated the positive effects of probiotic action (Clin Oral Invest DOI 10.1007)

In vitro studies with lactobacillus paracasei inhibited all periodontal pathogens tested and rapidly reduced the number of periodontal pathogens more than 50% within an hour. Also, bactericidal effect of the probiotic lasted more than 12 hrs.
