Benefits of Aloe Vera for your Gums:
Aloe vera is used in many places around the world. It has been widely used since ancient times. Its active ingredients are known as AEA (aloesin) and EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate).
These two compounds have shown to reduce inflammation, improve blood circulation, strengthen bones and muscles, relieve pain and promote healing in various diseases such as arthritis, cancer etc. There are several studies which prove its effectiveness in treating various types of diseases. Aloe vera gel has been found to be effective in reducing gum disease.
The main reason why it is being used for gums is because it helps prevent cavities and periodontitis. It also reduces bleeding and swelling after dental surgery. It also prevents tooth decay, especially when applied topically or internally.
How to Apply Aloe Vera Gel?
There are different ways to apply aloe vera gel. You can rub it directly on gums or just apply it with a cotton ball. You can also soak the cotton in aloe vera gel and then place it on your gums.
Rubbing Aloe Vera Gel on Gum Disease:
You need to rub the gel into the affected area using your fingers or a cotton ball. Make sure that it completely covers the affected area.
Using a Cotton Ball to Apply Aloe Vera Gel:
If you are using a cotton ball, dip it in the aloe vera gel and then place it on your affected gums. Make sure that it is placed on top of the affected areas and hold it in place for at least 15 minutes. You can even leave the cotton ball on your gums while you do other things.
However, make sure that it does not fall off or get pushed too far inward.
Always remember to apply a thin coat of the gel and rub it into the affected areas. Also, make sure that you do not swallow the aloe vera. Always wash your hands after using aloe vera.
If you are applying it to your children’s gums, make sure that they do not swallow it as well. Also, it is important that you consult your dentist before using it. If they do not recommend its use, then you should not use it.
