Aloe Vera is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. Researchers are still trying to determine all healing abilities of Aloe Vera.
If Sunburn, wounds, other skin problems have been treated with Aloe Vera for ages the ability to heal denture was mentioned recently.
Our moth has millions of bacteria, germs and viruses most of them are harmless until they build up and become an infection.
Gingivitis, periodontitis, stomatitis are all results of infections. Aloe Vera can eliminate diseases from the mouth, teeth and gums.
Gingivitis is inflammation of the gum tissue that causes the gum to become red, swollen and bleed. If Gingivitis progress it can turn into Periodontitis which is more severe and can cause the bone loss around the teeth and lead to complete loss of teeth.
Aloe Vera soothes swollen gums, decreases bleeding and eliminates bacteria and fungus.
Using Aloe Vera juice orally can help you to restore healthy gum.
Another mouth disease – stomatitis can be caused by several conditions such as poor hygiene, dietary protein deficiency, burns from hoot food or drinks, toxic plants or other infections. Iron deficiency, vitamin B deficiency (B2, B3, B6, B9, B12) can also lead to stomatitis. Again Aloe Vera can eliminate inflammation and get rid of fungus.
Aloe vera accelerates healing and reduces pain associated with canker sores, which are blisters on the lips or mouth. Aloe vera does not have a bad taste or sting when applied.
According to British Dental Journal (2005) dental irrigation with stabilized Aloe Vera gel greatly redused the patogenic microbial biofilms by suppressing regrowth the Streptococcus bacterias. With the biofilm gone, plaque and callus did not develop. US firm Aloe Vera of America (FLP) contributed to this study with their newly developed stabilized aloe vera in 1970s and 1980s.
Their patented stabilized Aloe Vera kept bio-active elements the same way as it that of the freshly cut aloe leaves, prevented the destructive oxidation of the beneficial properties of the inner gel.
A number of other periodontal pathogens were similarly affected. Irrigation was the way of choice in delivering the stabilised aloe vera into the crevice and pocket areas. Also noted were the antiinflammatory and desensitisation benefits of the plant material to the adjacent tissues.
