Good Oral Bacteria: Protecting the Health of Your Mouth

Were you aware that some bacteria in your mouth are absolutely essential for oral health? Not only will they protect your gums and teeth, but they may even stave off dental problems. Here are some surprising benefits that you might not have been aware existed:

  • Bacteria can counteract the damaging effects of acidic foods.
  • Bacteria reduce the chances of inflammatory conditions such as gum disease.
  • Your risk of tooth decay will decrease when you encourage good bacteria.

Cutting back on sugary and acidic foods, eating plenty of veggies and fruits, drinking plenty of water — and brushing/flossing regularly — helps to encourage the “good” bacteria.
