Keeping healthy bacteria in your mouth can help keep maintain strong oral health.

Oral probiotics in the form of mints or chewing gums introduce healthy bacteria to the oral cavity. The goal is to change the balance of the oral flora to one of health.

Clinical Implications: A probiotic chewing gum can introduce and promote colonization of good bacteria, but once daily is not enough to prevent experimental gingivitis.
