Benefits of Aloe for Your Teeth and Gums
Aloe vera features various antibacterial, non-abrasive, and anti-inflammatory properties as well as antioxidants. The plant’s leaves have a yellow liquid that contains pain easing chemical compounds and several antiseptic agents, which can prevent viruses, bacteria, and fungi from growing in your mouth.
Can Aloe Help Your Oral Health?
Aloe helps with the following oral conditions:
- Gum disease
- Gum infections
- Canker sores
- Cold sores
- Dry mouth
- Tooth decay
The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities of aloe can help you reduce the pain associated with ulcers, restore gum texture, and prevent bad breath, gum disease, and other inflammation. Studies have also shown that mouthwashes and toothpaste containing aloe vera have resulted in remarkably reducing gingivitis and plaque accumulation when they’re used consistently.
In one specific study, it was proven that aloe vera mouth rinse is equally effective in reducing plaque as Chlorhexidine compared to placebo over a period of four days.
