I don’t know a whole lot about oral pathogens, but I wouldn’t think they’d directly benefit candida. They can lead to severe infections if they get into the blood or gut flora imbalance if they get into the GI tract (implicated in IBD I believe). Gum disease is a major source of inflammation and has even been linked to heart disease. If you have any problems like cavities or bleeding gums, you’ll wanna resolve them ASAP, because it’s probably setting back much of the effort you’re putting in with pre/probiotics. I guess this is where it indirectly benefits candida.
