Los Angeles Dentist, Dr. Bijan Afar, Comments on the New Study about Cavity-Fighting Bacteria
Date:3/18/2016

Probiotics have been called microbial ecosystems, and they are as unique to a specific individual as a fingerprint is. Researchers at the University of Florida believe that these probiotics play a role in digestive health, autoimmune disorders, emotional health, diabetes, obesity and other systemic and general health issues. This study, the results of which are published in the March 2016 issue of Journal of Applied and Environmental Microbiology, found that healthy oral bacteria may similarly keep bad oral bacteria under control. Dr. Bijan Afar, dentist in Los Angeles, comments on the new study about cavity-fighting probiotics.

According to a study recently published in “Applied and Environmental Microbiology” and outlined in MedicalExpress.com, researchers may soon be able to combat cavities with an oral probiotic using a specific strain of Streptococcus. A healthy oral environment requires a neutral pH, and researchers found that these probiotics could neutralize acids by adding beneficial organisms to the mouth. These probiotics could then interfere with the disease-causing organisms' ability to cause dental disease or even kill them, leading to better dental health and a reduced incidence of disease.

While administering a dose of probiotics might not yet be a standard preventive treatment option offered at the local dental office, Dr. Afar does offer a number of other preventive care measures and recommends personalized care plans that can help address their unique risk factors. He offers a wide range of treatments, including:

  •     Dental sealants and fluoride
  •     Tooth-colored fillings, porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays
  •     Surgical and nonsurgical periodontal treatments
  •     Orthodontic treatments
  •     Dental implants
  •     Anti-aging dentistry
  •     TMJ dentistry
  •     Sleep apnea treatments
  •     Dental sedation
  •     Cosmetic dentistry procedure
