SILVEYRA, Estefanía et al. Probiotics and periodontal disease. Review of the literature. Int. j interdiscip. dent. [online]. 2022, vol.15, n.1, pp.54-58. ISSN 2452-5596.

Periodontal disease is classified into two main groups: gingivitis and periodontitis, triggered by an alteration of the oral microbiota, which causes an increase in pathogenic microorganisms with respect to the beneficial ones.

In interaction with the host and with the risk factors of the patient. They will define a specific clinical presentation. One of the strategies proposed as an alternative to the use of antibiotics and as an adjunct to scraping and root planning (RAR) to treat periodontitis, is the administration of probiotics. Probiotics are living microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, are capable of exerting a beneficial action on the health of the host. Therefore, the objective of this work was to describe the benefit of probiotics in the prevention and treatment of the main periodontal diseases. For this, a search was carried out between 2010 and 2020 in PubMed, Web of Science, SciELO, Science Direct and the Timbó Portal. The results obtained showed that probiotics are capable of reducing the clinical and microbiological parameters of these diseases and that they can be a valuable complement in their prevention and treatment.
