Probiotics: Manipulator of Periodontal Diseases?
Among the other periodontal diseases, periodontitis is one of the most commonly found chronic inflammatory diseases. Probiotics have become of interest to researchers in recent times. The development of resistance to a range of antibiotics by some important pathogens has raised an alarming question regarding the treatment of periodontal diseases. A plethora of bacterial pathogens have been associated with the periodontal disease and to overcome the consequences of periodontal diseases, probiotic technology is vastly used. Probiotic technology represents a step forward towards the maintenance of oral health by the use of natural beneficial bacteria found in healthy mouths that provide a natural defense against harmful bacteria. The present review emphases to introduce the concepts of probiotics in periodontics diseases.
