RAMOS-PERFECTO, Donald; BERROCAL-MEDRANO, Cinthia; CUENTAS-ROBLES, Adelmo  y  CASTRO-LUNA, Américo. Probiotics as a possible support in the treatment of chronic periodontitis. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.2, pp.112-115. ISSN 0719-0107.

A bibliographic review was carried out to present the benefits of probiotics in their possible use in chronic periodontitis. At present, new therapeutic approaches have appeared, which could complement the treatment of chronic periodontitis. It is well known that the gold standard in non-surgical treatment is scaling and root planing and that adjuvants, such as probiotics may support it. These commensal microorganisms of the oral microflora , when administered properly, would provide benefits to the individual, such as improving their periodontal health. Probiotics are producers of antimicrobial substances and have a competitive mechanism with pathogenic bacteria, as well as being modulators of the immune response. This review details their multiple benefits and their support in the treatment of chronic periodontitis.
