Hello. This is pharmacist Jinny.
Recently, more and more people are saying, “I was surprised by the smell of my breath” while wearing a mask. This is because wearing a mask inhibits the supply of oxygen, creating a favorable environment for harmful bacteria in the mouth.
The proliferated harmful bacteria not only cause simple bad breath, but also cause tooth decay and periodontitis, threatening overall oral health.
If so, what are some ways to suppress the growth of these harmful bacteria? Recently, the most attention in academia is the intake of 'lactic acid bacteria' . You are probably consuming lactic acid bacteria knowing that they are beneficial for gut health. So today, we're going to talk about the oral health-related benefits of probiotics.
