Abstract

Introduction: Indonesian people experience dental and oral health problems
as much as 57.6%, one of the dental and oral health problems that is often
treated is periodontal disease. Alternative prevention of periodontal disease is
by consuming probiotics (Lactobacillus reuteri). Probiotic (Lactobacillus
reuteri) contains L. reuteri bacteria which inhibits periodontal and cariogenic
pathogenic bacteria so that it is suspected to increase salivary flow rate. Objectives: to determine the effectiveness of probiotics (Lactobacillus reuteri) to increase salivary secretion. Materials and methods: this study
used an experimental approach with a pre-test and post-test design. The research subjects were 30 students of the Faculty of Dentistry, Mahasaraswati
Denpasar University who met the research criteria. The sample was divided
into two groups, namely the group that consumed the probiotic Interlac Pro-D lozenges and the group that consumed a placebo. The data taken were
the salivary flow rate, which was measured twice, before and after administration of the probiotic Interlac Pro-D lozenges and placebo. Data
analysis: data is processed using paired t-test and independent t-test. Results
and Discussion: The results showed that the average salivary secretion
before consuming Interlac Pro-D probiotic tablets was 0.3073 ± 0.02492 ml/
minute, increasing to 0.328 ± 0.03299 ml/minute, placebo increasing to 0.276
± 0.02293 ml/minute to 0.2853 ± 0.0256 ml/minute. There was a difference
in the effectiveness of increasing salivary secretion between the groups consuming the probiotic Interlac Pro-D tablets and placebo (p <0.005).
Conclusion: taking probiotic lozenges Interlac Pro-D (Lactobacillus reuteri
prodentis) is effective in increasing salivary secretion which is beneficial for
preventive therapy of periodontal disease.
