ProBiora3® has been clinically proven to lower the levels of harmful bacteria in the mouth, which supports the maintenance of the health of teeth, sub-gingival tissue, periodontal pockets and the entire oral cavity. Delivering results below the gum line gets to the root of oral care needs.
Many ingredients in this market are antibacterial or antiseptic. This shotgun approach kills oral bacteria indiscriminately and disrupts the delicate balance of microflora in the oral cavity, providing short-term superficial surface results that can ultimately increase the imbalance of opportunistic bacteria.
The probiotic strains in ProBiora3 are live, beneficial bacteria that bind to the tooth’s surface and permeate deep under the gum line.
A natural by-product of Streptococcus oralis KJ3™ and, to a lesser extent, Streptococcus uberis KJ2™ – two of the three strains included in ProBiora3 – is a low-dose of hydrogen peroxide. As these good bacteria are replenished daily, they create a gradual whitening with the full benefits of long contact times, delivering 24 hour per day 7 days per week (24-7) coverage for balancing and brightening. Other commercial tooth whiteners employ extremely high levels of hydrogen peroxide which can actually damage the tooth by creating a roughness on the tooth’s surface that can hold onto stains. Current tooth whiteners can also irritate gingival tissues and cause tooth sensitivity.
The three bacterial species used in ProBiora3 are known to be normal colonizers of the human mouth and, as such, address a major issue for successful application as a probiotic for use in maintaining oral and dental health. The three specific strains have been the subject of multiple investigations over the past two decades.
