Treating Dental Plaque with Aloe VeraDescription: The best thing for dental plaque is not to let it build up in the first place. But, as is often the case, we have a sore mouth or gumline, so we ease up on the brushing and the flossing. We feel a rough, 'fuzzy' film on our teeth and feel guilty, so brush more vigorously, which makes the gums bleed. Then we have to ease off again while it heals. All the while plaque is building up and hardening, making it even more difficult to remove.
So what is plaque? Plaque forms when bacteria in your mouth mix with sugary or starchy foods, such as milk, juice, soft drinks, bread, pasta and fruit. These bacteria release acids that break down carbohydrates in food and drinks. If you donít brush your teeth soon after eating or drinking, the combination of bacteria, acids and carbohydrates can mix into a sticky, colorless film called plaque that sticks to your teeth.
Which comes first, the sugar or the bacteria? The bacteria are there all the time, hiding and waiting for you to feed them with sugar. Plaque that stays on your teeth for any length of time can harden along your gumline into tartar, which is much more difficult to remove, and provides a safe haven for even more bacteria.
Plaque and tartar can lead to: cavities, gingivitis and periodontal (gum) disease, severe gum infection (periodontitis), tooth decay and loss, tooth infection (abscessed tooth). So good oral hygiene to remove plaque and prevent tartar buildup is essential to good health.
What can I do about Dental Plaque?
If you want to treat your condition naturally, or in conjunction with a conventional treatment, you might like to try using our Aloe Vera gel. The gel contains dozens of different nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, sugars, anthraquinones or phenolic compounds, lignin, saponins, sterols and salicylic acid. Often these are the very constituents found in your medication.
How do I use my gel when it arrives?
This is an interesting one because most other mouth problems are resolved by using the aloe gel as a mouth wash or gargle. But with dental plaque, the problem is a surface one that is easily removed by regular brushing. The problem comes when the bacteria that remain still find enough debris in the tiny crevices of our teeth to flourish.
If this is a problem for you, and you can feel that 'fuzzy' feeling on your teeth soon after you brush, then allow a suitable time for the ingredients of your toothpaste to do their job. For example, you might use one that claims to re-enamel your teeth, or coat them with some other wonder chemical. Allow your frozen aloe gel to dissolve and come up to room temperature, then dip the bristles of your brush into it, or take a little sip and brush your teeth with the aloe gel.
If there is any remaining, add a little water and swish the gel between your teeth like a mouthwash for about a minute, then spit it out. This should destroy the bacteria that cause tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath and ulcers.
What do I do when my leaves arrive? Just follow these simple instructions.

Disclaimer: Aloe Vera is known to be a wonderful cure-all around the world and back again. But it is always best to keep an open mind on both sides of the orthodox and natural remedies debate, and cherry pick the best solution on a condition by condition basis. Natural remedies alone may not always help to cure your condition, especially if there are contributory factors. If the condition worsens or takes longer than anticipated to recover, you are advised to contact your doctor. Normally, your aloe may be used along with any conventional medical treatment offered.
