The mouth contains hundreds of types of bacteria including streptococci, lactobacilli, etc. In normal conditions these bacteria work as a natural defense system for the mouth, but some factors (inadequate oral hygiene, illness, stress, poor diets) can disrupt this protective oral balance and allow bad bacteria to cause poor gum health, plaque buildup and bad breath. To keep a good oral health status, is not only important under local (mouth), esthetic or social point of view, is also a key point for the gastrointestinal well being. In fact, beyond this, recent insights have proved that the colonization or oral cavity by undesirable bacteria has an impact in the cardiovascular risk, for instance.
Gingivitis, caries and halitosis are very common oral health conditions amongst most population groups.

Probiotics and Oral Health
(Click here to access full article)
Haukioja and colleagues assessed the survival in saliva and adherence to oral surfaces of various probiotics used by the dairy industry (specifically, species of both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium). All of the strains tested survived well in saliva, but they varied widely in their capacity to adhere to the surface of teeth and oral mucosa. More specifically, the Lactobacillus species had a more superior adherence capacity than that of the Bifidobacterium species.
Anti-inflammatory Effects of Lactobacillus brevis (CD2) on Periodontal Disease
(Click here to access full article)
Riccia and colleagues studied the anti-inflammatory effects of Lactobacillus brevis in a group of patients with chronic gum disease. The treatment, which involved sucking on lozenges containing L. brevis over a period of 4 days, led to improvements in the targeted clinical parameters (plaque index, gingival index, bleeding on probing) for all patients. The authors suggested that the beneficial anti-inflammatory effects of L. brevis could be attributed to its capacity to prevent the production of nitric oxide and, consequently, the release of PGE2 and the activation of MMPs induced by the nitric oxide.38 However, L. brevis may also be antagonistic, leading to a reduction in the quantity of plaque and therefore an improvement in the gingival index.
