Researchers may have discovered a new way to effectively treat periodontitis patients.
A double-blind, placebo-controlled study of chronic periodontitis patients indicated that Lactobacillus reuteri Prodentis can improve efficacy by 53 percent.
The information appears in the online publication Journal of Clinical Periodontology. The study included 30 patients.
The goal of the study was to analyze the impact of Lactobacillus reuteri Prodentis on scaling and root planing, some of the basic treatment for chronic periodontitis patients.
