What is oral health?

Oral health refers to the well-being of your entire mouth, including your teeth, gums, tongue, and other components of the oral cavity such as your oral microbiome.

Maintaining a healthy oral microbiome involves regular dental checkups, proper hygiene, and a healthy diet.

Brushing twice daily, flossing, and dental visits prevent issues like cavities, gingivitis, and periodontitis.

Wait, what? I have mouth bacteria?

Your mouth is an amazing, vibrant ecosystem full of millions of bacteria.

Although probiotics are typically associated with gut health, where they support the digestive tract and immune system by colonising the gut with good bacteria, probiotics also play a crucial role in oral health by promoting healthy bacteria in the mouth.

A balanced oral microbiota may reduce the risk of oral health issues.

How probiotics support oral health

Your mouth is home to millions of bacteria. Some are good, but others are not so friendly. When there's an imbalance—too many bad guys and not enough good ones—it can lead to oral health issues.

Luckily, research suggests that specific strains of probiotics can help kick out the bad bacteria and keep your mouth healthier*.
