Power Of Aloe And Dental Health

Did you know Aloe Vera has a tremendous healing effect on your overall dental health?

The Aloe Vera plant holds a thick liquid substance in its leaves that are packed with vitamin B12, magnesium, copper, zinc and many many more important ingredients.

Aloe is so powerful that it is now being used in many oral care products such as tooth gels due to its anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties, mouthwashes and even dental floss.

Below are some common dental issues that Aloe can help with:

  • Gingivitis - This is a common disorder caused by inflammation of gum tissue that surrounds the teeth. As plaque accumulates on and around the teeth, it produces enzymes and toxins causing the inflammation which than can lead to tooth decay. Aloe kills gingivitis causing bacteria and acts as a powerful anti-septic for gum pockets where its difficult to reach when brushing.
  • Bad breath - The anti-inflammation and anti-bacterial qualities of Aloe work as a natural remedy for bad breath.
  • Stomatitis - Many denture wearers develop the oral condition known as denture stomatits, this can occur from leaving dentures in the mouth while sleeping as well as smoking or vitamin A deficiency. Candida Albicans fungus is one of the causes of stomatitis. Aloe has anti-fungal properties that can be effective in fighting the disease.
As you can see Aloe can fight gum disease, heal inflammations and disinfect. 

Remember maintaining good oral care is very important throughout your lifetime!
