Our Periodontal Pathogen test and probiotics

Screening

Our Periodontal Pathogen test can....

  • Identify gingivitis patients who are at increased risk of disease progression. Proper homeware and more frequent professional cleaning can prevent the development of periodontal disease.
  • Monitor the treatment efficacy of periodontitis and prevent disease recurrence.
  • Identify implant patients who are at increased risk of implantitis.

Probiotics

Definition

  • Probiotics are live microorganisms that when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.

Benefit

  • Probiotics are a form of microbiome therapy, which uses beneficial or commensal bacteria to reverse the balance between the microbiome and the host and modulate the host’s immune system.

probiotics for oral health

  • Mechanism
    • Compete against pathogenic oral bacteria
    • Prime and modulate oral immune response
  • Application of probiotics in oral health
    • Bad Breath: About 90% of bad breath is caused by overgrowth of oral bacteria that produce volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs).
    • Caries: Dental caries are destruction of tooth tissues by bacterial fermentation of dietary carbohydrates. Caries-promoting bacteria are acidogenic and aciduric.
    • Periodontitis: Periodontitis is caused by overgrowth of periodontitis-initiating pathogens, which lead to the imbalance of oral microbiome and the host
