Oral health and overall health are strongly connected and this is really starting to be more recognised globally as we understand more about human health.
The state of your oral health can offer lots of clues about your overall health. Our mouths and throats are teeming with billions and billions of bacteria, most of which are beneficial. But when the balance of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria is upset we develop conditions like strep throat, tonsillitis, ear infections, gum disease and tooth decay. While it is known that diseases of the oral cavity, throat and upper respiratory tract can have serious short and long term effects on the body, there is now emerging evidence that microorganisms associated with diseases such as gingivitis and periodontal diseases might also be linked to much more serious conditions. We know that untreated strep throats can develop into much more serious conditions like rheumatic fever and this can lead to rheumatic heart disease – a very serious condition which can leave the heart valves scarred.
Scientists have identified several links between poor oral health and other health problems -- although they can't yet establish cause and effect. This list of health problems has been growing as research continues.
BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 are scientifically developed advanced oral probiotics that can assist and support good oral health by attacking and crowding out the ‘bad’ bacteria. BLIS K12 is targeted towards ear, nose and throat health. BLIS M18 is designed for healthy teeth and gums.
