Our Dental Probiotics

Fidabiotics

  • Fidabiotics can restore normal oral flora from dysbiotic to symbiotic, which can prevent the overgrowth of periodontitis-associated bacteria.
  • Fidabiotics can modulate immune response and reduce oral and systemic chronic inflammation.
  • Fidabiotics contains BLIS-M18 and Lactobacilli, which all have been shown to break down dental plaque, reduce gum bleeding, and reduce gum pocket depth. 

What are Probiotics?

  • Probiotics are “live microorganisms, which when administered  in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”.
  • The concept of probiotics was first introduced in 1907 by the Nobel laureate Elie Metchnikoff, known as the “father of probiotics”, when he hypothesized that “the dependence of the intestinal microbes on food makes it possible to adopt measures to modify the flora in our bodies and to replace the harmful microbes by useful microbes”.
  • The most common lactic acid-producing probiotic bacteria species belong to Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium genera.
  • Prebiotics refer to dietary substances that promote the growth of beneficial bacteria over harmful ones.
  • The 2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) indicates that about 4 million U.S. adults (1.6%) and 300,000 children age 4 to 17 (0.5%) used probiotics. The use of probiotics in adults was four times higher in 2012 than in 2007. probiotics was the third most commonly used non vitamin non mineral dietary supplement.

ORAL MICROBIOME

  • Microorganisms found in the oral cavity are referred to as the oral microbiome
  • More than 700 bacterial species have been identified in the oral cavity.
  • Oral flora is the seed for gut flora.
  • A healthy oral microbiome can help lead to a healthy gut microbiome. 

PERIODONTITIS

  • About 50% of American adults have periodontal disease.
  • Periodontal disease is initiated by oral bacterial infections.
  • Oral bacterial infections can cause chronic inflammation.
  • Chronic inflammation can lead to destruction of gum tissue and bone loss. 

PROBIOTICS FOR PERIODONTITIS

  • Reduces gingival bleeding and decreases pocket depth.
  • Reduces the number of periodontal pathogens.
  • Reduces plaque index, gingival index, probing depth, and clinical attachment.
