If you have sensitive teeth or gums that bleed easily when you brush, finding the right toothpaste is more than a simple choice to prevent tooth decay. People with sensitive teeth or those who suffer from chronic mouth ulcers need more than just the ordinary toothpaste or mouthwash. Aloe Vera toothgel is now available to help solve these problems .
The Academy of General Dentistry in its May/June 2009 issue of the General Dentistry Journal, claims that Aloe Vera toothgel is effective as a cavity-preventing measure aside from working well on sensitive teeth and gums.
People in the dental profession have long debated the ability of Aloe Vera toothgel to eradicate disease-causing bacteria and other harmful microorganisms in the mouth. The Academy has reported however, that Aloe Vera toothgel is proven to be effective in fighting germs that accumulate in the mouth.
A recent experiment tested the germ-fighting properties of two well-known toothpaste brands alongside Aloe Vera toothgel and found the latter to be equally or even more effective in eradicating cavity-causing microflora in the mouth and gums.
The germ-fighting qualities of Aloe Vera toothgel is due to the fact that it contains natural anthraquinones – chemical compounds which also provide analgesic, anti-fungal, and anti-viral activity when used in low doses. It’s also really helpful to people with sensitivity issues since Aloe Vera toothgel contains no harsh abrasive components found in regular toothpastes.
Overall physical health is directly related to oral and dental health. Gingivitis or gum disease has been found to aggravate certain ailments such as diabetes, stroke, heart and lung diseases. Harmful germs and bacterial build-up in the mouth can cause periodontal disease and premature tooth loss. Apart from that, contagious bacteria is carried in the bloodstream and can spread infection to the other organs of the body.
An interesting study on this was conducted by Emory University along with with the Center for Disease Control. Researchers established that people with gingivitis and other forms of periodontal diseases had an almost 50% chance of dying earlier that those without the disease.
Aloe Vera toothgel provides preventative and curative measures against gingivitis and periodontitis. Its powerful antiseptic properties can reach all areas of the mouth to kill disease-causing bacteria. Its natural anti-inflammatory properties on the other hand, reduce soft tissue swelling and minimize bleeding of the gums.
Not all Aloe Vera toothgel formulas contain these necessary medicinal properties however. In fact only a few varieties out of over 300 aloe species have these oral health attributes.
The International Aloe Science Council was established to provide and enforce quality control procedures in the manufacture of Aloe Vera health care products. It provides certifications and seals of quality to manufacturers who match or exceed industry standards and provides consumers with the assurance that they are buying industry compliant products.
