Topic: L. reuteri probiotic for the upkeep of oral health and treatment of oral diseases

In this conference we will explain the basic principles and mechanisms of action of probiotics. We will explain its origin and definition as well as systemic and local effects in the oral cavity. The importance of the difference between the different strains even within the same probiotic will be explained. On the other hand, we will explain the relationship of probiotics and their benefit in pregnant women to reduce the incidence of pregnancy gingivitis, as well as their effect on newborn children who after 9 years have less incidence of caries and periodontal pathology. The effect of these for the treatment of periodontal pathologies is also detailed, explaining how they improve clinical parameters and reduce cytokine levels after probiotic treatment, and how similar or even better results are obtained when compared to chlorhexidine.

On the other hand, the effect it can have on peri-implant pathology is explained and how with probiotics we can also improve this situation. Everything is documented with clinical cases and finally we will explain the relationship of probiotics with their effects at the systemic level.
