Prevotella ruminicola : Boon or bane in periodontology.

Prevotella ruminicola is recently found in periodontal flora and is seen to be inversely related to red complex bacteria. Its inherent potential to degrade polysaccharides with less acid production is still not utilized in dentistry. While its potential use in treatment of periodontal lesions is discussed in this paper, its risk v/s benefits are elaborated with evidence. It is possible routes of delivery can be through probiotic recipes. In future such studies have to be conducted to result in better prognosis of periodontal diseases.
