Certain food supplements and vitamins help to protect your oral health. One of them, Lactibiane Bucodental tablets, is based on a microbiotic strain combined with vitamins C and D, which are used to prevent and treat oral infections.
The microbiota, previously known as flora, refers to the good bacteria or saprophytes found in certain type of corporal mucosa. In this case we aim to boost the oral flora, meaning that if we increase the number of beneficial bacteria, the pathogenic bacteria responsible for producing tooth decay or gum disease will find it more difficult to spread and attack the tissues.
The lactobacillus paracasei probiotic strain present in these tablets is ideal for preventing periodontal disease, while the vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen to help your teeth and gums function, and the vitamin D helps to keep your teeth in good condition. Lactobacillus paracasei is generally present in the oral and digestive mucosa, and increasing their number will protect us.
Taking these tablets can therefore help you to fight tooth decay, bad breath or halitosis, oral infections and gum disease such as gingivitis or periodontitis.
A recent study has shown the potential benefits of vitamins C and D in preventing periodontal disease. Specifically, it has been proven that vitamin D helps to prevent bone loss and inflammation. Furthermore, the same study also states that patients who consume an amount lower than the recommended daily vitamin C intake have greater possibilities of developing severe gingivitis.
That’s why vitamin supplements such as Lactibiane Bucodental can also help to keep your gums in good health and prevent tooth decay. The manufacturers recommend sucking one tablet after every meal, a maximum of twice a day, and preferentially after having brushed your teeth.
