3 Things You Should Know About Oral Probiotics
@bristlehealth Probiotics for your gums and teeth? Some work and some dont! Find out which ones with Bristle. #bristlehealth #oralmicrobiome #probiotics ♬ Summer day - TimTaj

Did you know that oral probiotics can reduce risk of chronic oral illness like cavities, gum disease, and bad breath?

I’m David, a saliva scientist, and here’s 3 things you should know about oral health probiotics:

  1. Probiotics for your gut are not the same ones that will benefit your mouth! Most gut probiotics can’t survive and colonize mouth!
  2. Clinical studies show that oral probiotics can reduce bad breath and gum inflammation for weeks to months after they are administered! this is because they treat the root cause of disease rather than mask the symptoms.
  3. Some species are more effective for people depending on their existing oral microbiomes.  For example, Lactobacillus paracasei has been shown to reduce levels of specific cavities causing bacteria, but not others.

Test your oral microbiome with Bristle and find out which probiotics will help your microbiome the most.
