 Dr. John R. Tagg, a microbiologist from New Zealand, may have discovered how millions can achieve optimal oral health—through oral probiotic lozenges.  For years Dr. Tagg studied a friendly species of bacteria that naturally occurs in the mouth called streptococcus salivarius.  He found that unlike other probiotic species, these strep bacteria live in benign symbiosis with the human oral cavity. 

Steptococcus salivarius produces proteins that reduce inflammation and help reduce the numbers of harmful bacteria that can lead to cavities and gingivitis.  To test Dr. Tagg’s discoveries, Swedish scientists have recently succeeded in reversing damage caused by gingivitis in just two weeks by administering oral probiotics to people with gum disease. 

The two beneficial strains included in the lozenge were S. salivarius and B. coagulans.  Lozenges will soon be available without a prescription.  One lozenge a day is recommended for healthier teeth and gums.
