Lumina

The science behind Lumina Probiotic

Ordinary s mutans bacteria secrete lactic acid onto the teeth, causing cavities.

1.

Sugar on teeth

Streptococcus Mutans metabolizes glucose (sugar) on our teeth.

2.

Lactic Acid structure

This process forms by-products such as lactic acid.

3.

Tooth with enamel breaking down

Lactic acid erodes enamel over time, causing cavities.

Degrading enamel, and imbalances in the oral microbiome, can cause significant problems.

Tooth with a cavity

Cavities impact 90% of adults in the US.

And if left unchecked, serious, even fatal, infections can result

How does Lumina disrupt this process?

Strategic Modification

Lumina delivers a genetically modified strain of s. mutans, which avoids lactic acid production.

Genetically modified DNA strand

Studies suggest that a one-time application of this strain will change the oral microbiome.

1.

Brushing Teeth

Lumina is applied to the teeth and displaces the native S. Mutans strain

2.

Sparkling tooth

Low levels of acid in byproducts makes your oral microbiome less conducive to cavity formation.
