Treating Periodontal Disease with Aloe VeraDescription: Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is an inflammatory condition affecting the tissues surrounding the teeth. In its early stage, called gingivitis, the gums become swollen, red, and may bleed. In its more serious form, called periodontitis, the gums can pull away from the tooth, bone can be lost, and the teeth may loosen or fall out. Bad breath may also occur.
Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria in the mouth infecting the tissue around the teeth. Factors that increase the risk of disease include smoking, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, family history, certain medications and an unsatisfactory or non-existing brushing technique. Dentists inspect the gum tissue around the teeth both visually and with a probe during routine checkups, and X-rays if there is any doubt, looking for bone loss around the teeth.
Symptoms may include: Redness or bleeding of gums while brushing teeth, using dental floss or biting into hard food. Swollen gums, halitosis, or bad breath, and a persistent metallic taste in the mouth. Gingival recession, resulting in apparent lengthening of teeth. Deep pockets between the teeth and the gums. Loose teeth. Gingival inflammation and bone destruction.
Why do I have to worry about this?
Because there is an established link between gum disease and cardiovascular disease. The bacteria that sit in those deep pockets of receding gum beside the teeth have direct access to the blood supply and can find their way to the coronary arteries, causing injury, inflammation, plaque and then blockage.
The one thing that it's important to understand is, there are millions of people walking around with peridontal disease, gingivitis, tooth decay and infected root canals that don't have any symptoms, and the first time they realize there is anything wrong is when they are told they have heart disease, or worse, a heart attack or stroke. If you spit blood when you brush, see your dentist and start irrigating daily with your aloe gel. See below.
What can I do about Periodontal Disease?
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?
Take a frozen cube of your gel and allow it to dissolve in a little warm water. Take a few sips and swish/irrigate the liquid around your mouth and teeth for a good minute. Spit the waste out. Do this with half the drink, then drink the rest.
What do I do when my leaves arrive? Just follow these simple instructions.
Please contact me when your condition improves. I really love to hear your success stories.
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.

Background: Recent interest and advances in the field of alternative medicine has promoted the use of various herbal and natural products for multiple uses in the field of medicine. Aloe vera is one such product exhibiting multiple benefits and has gained considerable importance in clinical research. This clinical study focuses on Aloe vera and highlights its property when used as a medicament in the periodontal pocket.
Conclusion: We conclude that subgingival administration of Aloe vera gel results in improvement of periodontal condition. Aloe vera gel can be used as a local drug delivery system in periodontal pockets.

Applications in Dentistry: Periodontitis Bhat et al. evaluated the clinical effects of subgingival application of A. vera gel in periodontal pockets of adult periodontitis patients after mechanical debridement. In this study, 15 subjects were evaluated for clinical parameters such as plaque index, gingival index, probing pocket depth at baseline, followed by scaling and root planning (SRP).
Test site comprised of SRP, followed by intra-pocket placement of A. vera gel, which was compared with the control site in which only SRP was done, and clinical parameters were compared between the two sites at 1-month and 3 months from baseline. Results exhibited encouraging findings in clinical parameters of the role of A. vera gel as a drug for local delivery and it was concluded that subgingival administration of A. vera gel results in improvement of periodontal condition. A. vera gel can be used as a local drug delivery system in periodontal pockets.
