A new study published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology came up with an interesting fact that there is a strong association between periodontitis and the complications of COVID-19. After examining more than 500 COVID-19 patients the researchers could deduce that those who had gum disease were at a greater risk of getting admitted into ICU, or put on a ventilator support and even more likely to die.

Oral probiotics (or dental probiotics) are specific strains of bacteria known to support a healthy mouth and improve oral health. They encourage the growth of good bacteria and stop the growth of bad (pathogenic) bacteria. Like the gut, the mouth has its diverse bacterial community known as the oral microbiome. Dental probiotics are similar to gut probiotics in that they use good (commensal) bacteria to improve the health of the microbiome in the mouth.  However, they’re not the same as gut probiotics — oral probiotics are most effective when delivered directly to the mouth via lozenges,
