Unlocking the Mysteries of Oral Health

Oral health issues are predominantly driven by microbial imbalances.

Dive into the microscopic world of our probiotics strains, oraCMU and oraCMS1. These images, magnified thousands of times using an electron microscope, provide a closer look at the beneficial bacteria that work to maintain your oral health.

Most of the oral symptoms we face result from harmful bacteria. While these bacteria exist in our mouths, their adverse effects are controlled when beneficial bacteria dominate. These friendly bacteria inhibit the growth and activity of their harmful counterparts. It's when the delicate balance of this oral microbiome is disrupted that oral problems arise.

Periodontal Disease

Cavities, also known as caries, are the result of S. mutans bacteria residing in our oral cavity. These bacteria metabolize sugars from our food and produce acid. This acid can attack tooth tissue, leading to the formation of cavities.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal Disease: The term 'periodontal' refers to the areas around the tooth. Periodontal disease involves inflammation caused by bacterial infections within these structures, which include the gums and bones surrounding the teeth.

Halitosis (Bad Breath)

Apart from systemic diseases, approximately 85% of halitosis cases - unpleasant breath - are due to oral problems. Volatile Sulfur Compounds (VSCs), the main odor-causing components, arise when harmful bacteria in the mouth breakdown proteins from food residues and other substances.

For a healthier body, start with a healthier mouth.

The state of your oral health can significantly impact your overall health. Poor oral hygiene or dental and gum diseases can influence the movement and balance of both oral and intestinal microbes, affecting the digestive or immune systems. Recent research suggests that harmful bacteria and toxins residing in the oral cavity can trigger gum inflammation and, through the bloodstream, potentially cause various systemic diseases. Therefore, it's crucial to maintain oral health for a healthier body.
