Abstract
The oral infections and tooth decay are now-a-day a common disease. This occurs mainly due to changes in environment by way of illness debility, diet, medication etc. To prevent this, an effective treatment by antimicrobial therapy is in use, but some side effects are associated with this treatment. Hence, the researchers are searching for other alternative treatment of dental infection. One such alternative treatment is use of Probiotics which is a promising way to fight infections by using harmless bacteria. These products help in protecting health by promoting flora and also suppressing the pathogens. Various studies revealed anti-cariogenic effects of probiotics and their use in the treatment of periodontal diseases. However, an actual result on the use of probiotics for the treatment of oral cavity is still waited. The present review is an attempt in brief to focus the potential role of probiotics in improving oral and dental health
