Probiotics of Interest Given the widespread emergence of bacterial resistance to antibiotics, the concept of probiotic therapy has been considered for application in oral health. Dental caries, periodontal disease and halitosis are among the oral disorders that have been targeted. An essential condition for a microorganism to represent a probiotic of interest for oral health is its capacity to adhere to and colonize various surfaces of the oral cavity.9,10 Lactobacilli constitute about 1% of the cultivable oral microflora in humans.11 The species most often found in saliva are Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus fermentum, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus salivarius. 11 L. acidophilus, L. casei, L. fermentum and L. rhamnosus are found in dairy products,9,12 but there is no evidence that these species are present in the oral cavity as a result of frequent consumption of dairy products (leading to temporary colonization), nor is there evidence that the oral environment represents their natural and permanent habitat. Sookkhee and colleagues13 isolated 3,790 strains of lactic acid bacteria from 130 individuals and found that the isolates identified as Lactobacillus paracasei ssp. paracasei and L. rhamnosus had a high capacity to antagonize important oral pathogens, including Streptococcus mutans and Porphyromonas gingivalis. Weissella cibaria (formerly classified in the genus Lactobacillus), a Gram-positive facultative anaerobic lactic acid bacterium14 that has been isolated from humans, is present in fermented foods and is considered a potential probiotic agent. W. cibaria secretes a significant quantity of hydrogen peroxide,15 as well as a bacteriocin that acts against Gram-positive bacteria.16 This bacterial species has the capacity to coaggregate with Fusobacterium nucleatum and to adhere to epithelial cells.15 These properties could enable W. cibaria to effectively colonize the oral cavity and limit the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria. Recently, Haukioja and colleagues17 assessed the survival in saliva and adherence to oral surfaces of various probiotics used by the dairy industry (specifically, species of both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium). All of the strains tested survived well in saliva, but they varied widely in their capacity to adhere to the surface of teeth and oral mucosa. More specifically, species in the genus Lactobacillus had an adherence capacity superior to that of the Bifidobacterium species. Moreover, it has been reported that people who have consumed yogourt containing L. rhamnosus on a daily basis host this microorganism in the saliva for up to 3 weeks after discontinuing yogourt consumption.18 However, contradictory results were obtained by Yli-Knuuttila and colleagues,19 who reported that a strain of L. rhamnosus colonized the oral cavity only temporarily and that consistent Figure 1: Ideal properties of a probiotic intended for use in disorders of the mouth. The consumption of the probiotic would be necessary for long-term beneficial effects. Together, these results suggest that the probiotics used in consumer products could colonize the oral cavity.
