We are really excited to announce that we are now carrying Oral Probiotics at wholesale pricing for the dental profession! BLIS Oral Probiotics from New Zealand!

Lorraine Gambacourt, presenter and laser trainer at rdhu, is super passionate about Oral Probiotics and has been pushing to make this happen!

Oral Probiotics is a great adjunct that we can add to our treatment plans for those clients who present with gingivitis, periodontal disease, xerostomia, yeast, caries and/or halitosis (and so much more…)!

Here is a blog about Oral Probiotics brought to you this week by Lorraine Gambacourt:

Oral Probiotics ~ Trending now in Oral Health!

Many of you know how passionate I am about Oral Probiotics!

What if…

· we could improve the quality of saliva, and reduce the potential for oral Candida to become opportunistic in the mouth?

· we could reduce the risk of dental decay and Candida in someone who suffers from xerostomia?

· we could help reduce the incidence of ear and throat infections, and help ward off the common cold?

· we could help to reduce the incidence of decay, gingivitis, periodontal disease, and halitosis?

· we could positively influence and sustain a healthier biofilm, by “repopulating” the oral cavity with healthy bacteria after conventional periodontal therapies?

Most people understand the benefits of gut probiotics, but few individuals and oral health professionals are aware of the preventive and/or supportive benefits to oral health that Oral Probiotics can provide.

In the fall of 2016, I attended a lecture and learned that Oral Probiotics would be an emerging trend in oral health in the following10 years. I found this fascinating so began researching the science behind the many beneficial oral probiotic strains as well as the products available! I began teaching what I learned, followed by writing two articles this year, as well as a full chapter on the topic, which was included in the book “Get Your Spit Together” which launched in January this year.

Oral Probiotics are specific strains of healthy bacteria that can improve oral health. They encourage the growth of good bacteria while stopping or interfering with the growth of pathogenic bacteria.

Many things upset the balance in the oral microbiome, creating a “dysbiosis”, allowing pathogenic bacteria to thrive leading to the many conditions and oral diseases we frequently see.

Numerous studies have shown that Oral Probiotics can be extremely useful in the prevention or treatment of oral diseases such as tooth decay, halitosis, and periodontal disease. Some have also been shown to boost the immune system and reduce the potential for ear and throat infections.

While Oral Probiotics can undoubtedly provide significant benefits to oral health, it is important to point out that the timing of the recommendation is critical for optimal results. If an individual has significant oral infection, it must be addressed first followed by the introduction of Oral Probiotics in the maintenance phase of treatment.

Adding this adjunct to our treatment therapies can most definitely lower risk, help prevent disease, boost our immune defenses, and improve treatment outcomes.

So, six years after my initial introduction, I believe the time is NOW for us to recommend this oral health supplement! Join the many who see the addition of Oral Probiotics as an exciting and promising oral health strategy and decide for yourself whether Oral Probiotics could be the “missing link” to help sustain improved oral health outcomes!

rdhu is NOW offering BLIS K12 ™ FRESHBREATH, and BLIS M18™ (TEETH&GUMS) at wholesale pricing so you can have readily available to your clients!


BLIS K12™ is the world’s first probiotic specifically developed for oral health. The benefits extend far beyond fresh breath to include: Inhibition of P. gingivalis and P. intermedia; reduction/prevention of ear and throat infections; protection against Candida; anti-viral properties; reduction of periodontal pathogen-induced inflammation.


BLIS M18 ™ inhibits key periodontal pathogens including Aa, Pg, Pi, and Fn, and reduce periodontal pathogen-induced inflammation. BLIS M18™ can also reduce caries risk by breaking down plaque, neutralizing pH and inhibiting the growth of S. mutans.

Thank you Lorraine for sharing this transformational information!

Have a great week ahead! Please take a look below for what is coming up!

Kindest regards,
