Health and wellness begin in the mouth

The YOTUEL microbiome range of products with The oral-gut connection® technology, takes care of the oral microbiome essential for health

The oral microbiome is made up of millions of cells and microorganisms that inhabit our mouth and that form an ecosystem in balance.

The oral microbiome is essential for our health and well-being. It is the first line of defence that our body has against possible infections.

An imbalance in this ecosystem can mean the development of oral dysbiosis that triggers an oral disease. Oral dysbiosis can cause pathology elsewhere in the body.

What can alter our oral microbiome and cause oral dysbiosis or imbalance?
  • Take care of your diet and lifestyle. An unbalanced diet, excessive carbohydrate consumption, stress, certain medications, tobacco or alcohol are reasons why our microbiome can be altered.
  • Watch for changes in the environment. Oral dysbiosis is accompanied by changes in the oral microbiome ecosystem, a decrease in the diversity of germs in the microbiome and the appearance of opportunistic microorganisms that take advantage of the situation to cause infections.
  • Use appropriate products to care for and enhance the balance of your oral microbiome.
What is the difference between oral microbiome and oral microbiota?

The oral microbiota constitutes the whole set of microorganisms that inhabit the mouth. This includes bacteria, archaea, fungi, viruses, and protozoa. It is one of the most diverse communities in the human body in terms of composition. In addition, the oral cavity is the entry route for microorganisms from the gastrointestinal tract.

The oral microbiome is made up of the oral microbiota and its environment (environment or ecosystem) and has essential functions for the human body that we are not capable of performing. It synthesises essential substances for our health and well-being and is the first line of defence against infections

What are the most common bacteria in the mouth?

The oral cavity of a healthy adult contains a large number of microorganisms whose diversity and balance are essential for oral health: bacteria, archaea, fungi, protozoa and even viruses.

This resident microbiota appears from the moment of birth, remains relatively stable throughout life and varies from one person to another.

As for the most common oral microbiota bacteria in the oral cavity are: Streptococcus, Actinomyces, Prevotella and Fusobacterium.

There are bacteria that we could commonly call “good bacteria” and “bad bacteria”

What is an oral dysbiosis?

Any imbalance in the number or proportion of microorganisms that make up the oral microbiota, either due to a decrease in the “good” or an increase in pathogens.

These changes can begin as a consequence of alterations in the oral ecosystem, such as dehydration of the mucous membranes, alterations in the pH of the mouth, a decrease in salivary secretion or even an alteration in the quality of saliva that can occur as a result of stress, diet and our lifestyle, among others

How can I keep the oral microbiome in optimal condition?

Lifestyle is one of the factors that most impacts the balance of the oral microbiome. Therefore, a good diet and giving up bad habits, such as tobacco or alcohol consumption, will avoid an excess of harmful microorganisms in the oral cavity.

Good oral hygiene is, of course, the foundation of all oral care. YOTUEL microbiome Care Oral Line has been formulated respecting the principles of protection of the human microbiome and the oral ecosystem

Does diet affect the oral microbiome?

Yes, diet also affects oral health and the oral microbiome.

For example, a diet rich in carbohydrates alters the balance of the oral microbiome, since, through its decomposition, they favour an acidic environment that allows the excessive growth of bacteria associated with the appearance of cavities.

Therefore, it is advisable to maintain a healthy and balanced diet, avoiding those foods that may be harmful to oral health, such as those with high sugar content, processed foods, fast food, and it is preferable to choose a varied diet such as the Mediterranean diet.

Does the emotional state affect the microbiome? And the microbiome to the brain?

Yes, another factor that affects the oral microbiome is emotional states, for example, stress. People with high levels of stress have been shown to suffer from poorer oral health.

However, it is a two-way relationship, meaning the oral microbiome also affects brain health. Oral dysbiosis has been related to disorders such as lack of concentration, hyperactivity states, depression-anxiety and cognitive impairment, among others.

The implication of the oral microbiome in Alzheimer’s disease has recently been confirmed: Porphyromonas gingivalis, a pathogenic bacterium responsible for chronic periodontitis, as well as the toxic proteases (gingipains) secreted by it, have been identified in the brain of patients suffering from it. Alzheimer’s.

How does the microbiome benefit your mouth?

Our microbiome is of vital importance because it performs functions that we ourselves are not capable of performing. It synthesizes essential substances for our health and well-being and is the first line of defence against infections. Therefore, balance in the microbiome is essential for proper oral health.

What happens if our oral microbiome is out of balance?

If there is an imbalance in our oral microbiome, harmful bacteria will outweigh the good ones, leading to oral diseases such as cavities, gingivitis, periodontitis and / or mouth sores. However, it has been shown that the mouth is connected to our body and an imbalance in our oral microbiome can increase the risk of leading to highly significant diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases, rheumatoid arthritis or certain cancers.

How can a toothpaste help you take care of your microbiome?

To promote a naturally balanced oral microbiome, we must take special care in the products we use in our daily oral cleansing.

Does rinsing with an antiseptic improve the oral microbiome?

Antiseptics are antimicrobial substances that destroy both bad and good microorganisms. Therefore, as long as there is no infection, the use of oral antiseptics is not recommended since they alter the balance of the oral microbiome (dysbiosis).
