Research Study #28
In Vitro Evaluation of the Effect of Oral Probiotic Weissella cibaria on the Formation of Multi-Species Oral Biofilms on Dental Implant Surfaces
This study is the first to confirm the effect of oral probiotic W. cibaria strains CMU and CMS1 on the formation of multi-species oral biofilm in vitro and in a titanium disc using various analytical methods. This study suggests that oral probiotics can be used as an adjunct therapy to prevent peri-implant infections by inhibiting the formation of implant biofilms.
Our results suggest that the W. cibaria probiotics offer new possibilities for the prevention and treatment of bacterial URTIs.
