Aloe Vera has been shown to enhance defense mechanisms, and it has a variety of  components to help combat periodontal disease and other oral conditions. As a  periodontist utilizing Aloe Vera in various consistencies for the last 14 years with over  6,000 documented patients who have been treated with applications, I’ve observed  remarkable healing, reduced edema, and pain control.

There are eight main uses of Aloe Vera in dental practice:

  1. Applications directly to the sites of periodontal surgery.
  2. Applications to the gum tissues when they have been traumatized or scratched by  toothbrush-dentifrice abrasion, sharp foods, dental floss, and toothpick injuries.
  3. Chemical burns are relieved quickly from accidents with aspirin.
  4. Extraction sites respond more comfortable and dry sockets do not develop when  Aloe vera is applied.
  5. Acute mouth lesions are improved by direct application on herpetic viral lesions,  aphthous ulcers, canker sores, and cracks occurring at the corners of our lips.  Gum abscesses are soothed by the applications as well.
  6. Other oral diseases chronic in nature respond with Lichen Planus and Benign  Pemphigus. Even gun problems associated with tongue and Burning Mouth  Syndrome are improved.
  7. Denture patients with sore ridges and ill-fitting dentures and partials can benefit  as funguses and bacterial contamination reduce the inflammatory irritations.
  8. Aloe Vera can also be used around dental implants to control inflammation from  bacteria contamination.

Other oral disorders such as Candidiasis, Desquamative Gingivitis, Vesiculobullous  diseases, acute monocytic leukemia, hematological disorders and nutritional problems all  respond to Aloe vera use. Even diabetes mellitus, Sjorgen’s Syndrome, menopausal  patients and medications which can cause Xerostomia or dry mouth.

Interest is gathering momentum across our country as researchers are becoming  interested in alternative therapy utilizing natural products versus synthetic agents. Aloe Vera research is currently being undertaking at Oklahoma University, Baylor University,  and Loma Linda.

Lastly, it was a privilege to use Aloe Vera on the bombing victims in the April 1995  disaster in Oklahoma City. The attendants, doctors and especially the injured learned that  the healing capabilities of Aloe vera far exceeded their expectations in pain control and  healing time reduction.

Aloe Vera has an unlimited future in new applications, and I sense in dentistry we are  just on the cutting edge of promising utilization for anti-inflammatory procedure,  antiviral, and immunological benefits for our patients.

Candidiasis is a fungal infection caused by a yeast (a type of fungus) called Candida. Some species of Candida can cause infection in people; the most common is Candida albicansCandida normally lives on the skin and inside the body, in places such as the mouth, throat, gut, and vagina, without causing any problems. (1)

Aloe vera has several beneficial properties that can help cure yeast infections. While pure aloe gel has antifungal properties, internal consumption can help increase white blood cells, which helps your body fight yeast from within. You can safely drink aloe vera juice every day until you see improvement. Just add 2 tea spoons of fresh aloe gel to any fruit juice and blend it together. Additionally, you could also apply pure aloe gel to the affected area three times a day. (2)

Gingivitis is a type of gum disease where plaque accumulates on the teeth. Plaque is a naturally occurring sticky film. But too much can cause inflammation of the gum tissue, resulting in painful, bleeding gums. (3)

The findings suggest that aloe vera may speed the healing process of gingivitis. (3)

Reduce inflammation & speed healing – Aloe vera may improve healing while treating gingivitis and may reduce inflammation in the gums. (3)

BLISTERING diseases of the skin are common. Causes include infectious agents, allergic drug reactions, contact dermatitis, and autoimmune diseases. This report will describe autoimmune blistering diseases. (4)

Physicians should suspect an autoimmune bullous disease when there is no clear history of exposure to a drug or a contact allergen or when laboratory studies for infectious origins, such as herpes or impetigo, are negative. To differentiate these diseases, a careful history and physical examination are important. The distribution of clinical lesions and their patterns are frequently important in establishing the diagnosis. A skin biopsy is often helpful. As diagnosis is sometimes difficult, it is wise to work closely with a dermatologist consultant in both diagnosis and treatment of patients with these diseases. (4)

Dr. Wu says: “This is a great idea. Aloe vera is a natural anti-inflammatory, which means it helps relieve redness and swelling. Plus it’s very hydrating, and keeping skin moist helps it heal faster, especially once the blister pops on its own and shrivels up.” (5)

 

DIABETES

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. (6)

Research suggests that aloe vera juice or supplements could have a number of possible benefits for people with diabetes:

Lower fasting blood glucose levels. A 2015 study suggests that taking aloe vera gel can help people achieve better fasting blood glucose levels, as well as reduce body fat and weight. (7)

 

 

NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCY

The body requires many different vitamins and minerals that are crucial for both body development and preventing disease. These vitamins and minerals are often referred to as micronutrients. They aren’t produced naturally in the body, so you have to get them from your diet. (8)

A nutritional deficiency occurs when the body doesn’t absorb or get from food the necessary amount of a nutrient. Deficiencies can lead to a variety of health problems. These can include digestion problems, skin disorders, stunted or defective bone growth, and even dementia. (8)

Active components with its properties: Aloe vera contains 75 potentially active constituents: vitamins, enzymes, minerals, sugars, lignin, saponins, salicylic acids and amino acids.

  1. Vitamins: It contains vitamins A (beta-carotene), C and E, which are antioxidants. It also contains vitamin B12, folic acid, and choline. Antioxidant neutralizes free radicals. (9)
