Probiotics are not just for the stomach!
Probiotics are beneficial, that's for sure. But did you know they're not just there to help your gut? It turns out there are a number of benefits for your mouth! We did some research, and according to Healthline.com and Colgate.com, the following seem to be among the top benefits that those in the dental and orthodontic fields have seen...
1. Fights bad breath - helps restore the good bacteria to keep the odorous at bay
2. Prevents plaque
3. Helps prevent oral cancer by not allowing certain pathogens to grow
4. Boosts your immune system
5. Decreases inflammation of gum disease, slowing it's progression
If you start taking a probiotic, just know it can take up to 4 weeks to start seeing the maximum benefits, but patience can definitely pay off! Any questions, just
ask your orthodontist!
