The Science of Probiotics — Restoring the Balance of a Healthy Mouth.
You may be familiar with probiotics for digestive and immune health. Probiotics use beneficial bacteria to replace harmful ones and promote health. ProBioraPlus® is the first probiotic powder specifically designed for your pet’s oral and dental care.
Villains and Superheroes in the Mouth
In the 1980s, a researcher named Jeffrey Hillman, PhD, DDS, wondered, “Is there a biological mechanism that helps counteract bad bacteria and, instead, promoted a healthy mouth?”
Conducting landmark research at the Harvard-affiliated Forsyth Institute in Boston and later at the University of Florida Dental School, Hillman discovered that there are “good” bacteria that can crowd out the “bad” bacteria and restore the natural balance of a healthy mouth.
From this discovery, Dr.Hillman created ProBiora3, a patented blend of beneficial “superhero” bacteria that crowd out the “villains” and support overall gum and tooth health. Now with 30 years of clinical research to back it up, ProBiora3 is the active ingredient in ProBioraPet and other ProBiora Health oral care probiotic products.
Harnessing Probiotics for Your Oral Health
The way ProBioraPlus oral care probiotics works is simple: Freeze-dried live microorganisms—“good,” or beneficial bacteria—are introduced to the mouth in the probiotic mint. As the mint dissolves in the mouth, the saliva hydrates the probiotic bacteria. They seek out their natural habitat, immediately migrating to the mouth tissue, gums, gum pockets and tooth surfaces where they will “live” and compete with the pathogens.
These beneficial bacteria restore the balanced oral biome that’s so critical to good oral health. Using ProBiora Health probiotics just once a day is all it takes to support healthier gums and teeth and fresher breath.
