Probiotics to Protect Your Precious Smile

The oral cavity harbors a rich and complex microbiota unique to everyone: one milliliter of human saliva contains approximately 100 million bacteria. Under normal conditions and with proper oral hygiene, the oral microbiota is balanced and works as a natural defense system against opportunistic bacteria. However, this balance can be altered by lifestyle factors, illnesses or physiological factors which disrupt the oral microflora.

Probiotics are well documented for their beneficial effects in supporting good oral health, while answering consumer’s need for efficient, yet natural personal care solutions. Based on its extensive expertise in probiotics selection and development, Lallemand Health Solutions has a portfolio of solutions to address the oral health market.

Oralis SB is a unique combination of three probiotic bacteria, L. helveticus Rosell®-52, L. rhamnosus Rosell®-11, B. longum Rosell®-175 and one probiotic yeast, S. boulardii CNCM I-1079 and is supported by 13 clinical studies in children and adults, with three clinical studies on the control of the growth of S. mutans count and support of healthy teeth, eight clinical studies on gum health and plaque formation, and one clinical study on the maintenance of a healthy salivary pH, along with in vitro documentation on modes of action. This probiotic combination is one of the most documented formulas in the world for the maintenance of oral health. Studies have shown this probiotic combination provided similar or better results in comparison with widely used mouthwashes containing chlorhexidine or sodium fluoride.

Based on previous significant results supporting oral health, the three probiotic bacterial strains from Oralis, were further studied, alone or in combination for the maintenance of a healthy breath. In vitro studies showed a competition effect against opportunistic microorganisms found in the oral cavity. Moreover, Oralis’ inhibitory effect against the emission of malodourous gases produced by P. gingivalis and T. denticola was evaluated in vitro.

Everyone is subject to unpleasant odors stemming from the oral cavity from time to time, especially after eating strongly odorous food like garlic or onions. In 85% of cases, the root cause of bad breath is due to the emission of malodorous gases from the mouth called volatile sulfur compounds. Lifestyle habits like smoking, drinking alcohol or dietary habits can also lead to halitosis, which affects 6% to 50% of the human population worldwide. Food debris in-between teeth or dental plaque, feed oral microorganisms, resulting in the production of these malodourous gases. Read more

The oral cavity harbors a rich and complex microflora, unique to everyone: one milliliter of human saliva contains approximately 100 million bacteria. The oral cavity is favorable for a variety of bacteria, where more than 700 species can be detected. Oral microflora evolves with age: at birth, the infant mouth is sterile but within hours is colonized with streptococci. With the appearance of first teeth, new niches are available for bacterial colonization, and new bacterial species colonize the surface of the dental enamel, forming dental plaque, while other anaerobic bacteria colonize gingival crevices. During puberty, changes in hormone levels alter oral microflora to transition to an adult oral flora. The oral microflora becomes more and more diverse over time until it reaches an equilibrium and remains stable, although some external factors can alter this balance. Read more
