Abstract: Probiotics, which are defined as live microbes that confer health benefits to a host when consumed in sufficient quantities, may offer a low-risk, easy-to-use treatment option for periodontal diseases. They are a heterogeneous group of nonpathologic bacteria that are functionally defined by their ability to allay inflammation. They have been used to improve gastrointestinal health and their popularity has prompted increased interest for their role in promotion of oral health also. A few conventional foods containing probiotics are yogurt, fermented and unfermented milk, soy beverages etc. Most often, they come from two groups of bacteria, Lactobacillus or Bifi dobacterium. Probiotics have been extensively studied for their health promoting effects. The present article summarizes the role of probiotics in periodontal health and disease and its effectiveness in periodontal therapy.
