Antibiotics Can Kill The ‘Good Bacteria’ Needed for Good Oral Health



New research shows that bacteria within our bodies are effective in helping kill oral infections. The research notes antibiotics can actually kill off these ‘beneficial’ bacteria.

Key takeaways:

– Our teeth and gums benefit from the body’s “beneficial” bacteria which fight infections and inflammation.

– Overuse of antibiotics can harm these beneficial bacteria, which can set the stage for infections.

– Maintaining regular dentist visits is important since good oral health is linked to overall health.
