Aloe vera as an herbal remedy in dentistry

Author: KAVIYA.L , DR. JAYALAKSHMI SOMASUNDARAM
Abstract: Aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis) is a plant that belongs to the Liliaceae family. It is called the “plant of immortality" because it can live and bloom without soil. It has various properties such as immunomodulatory, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory in nature. Aloe vera is gaining popularity in dentistry because it is completely natural and has fewer side effects with its use. Products of the plant are used in the treatment of various ailments. Aloe vera can play a significant role in dentistry in the treatment of oral lichen planus, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, radiation-induced oral mucositis, periodontitis, gingivitis. It has been used in dentistry for its wound-healing property, plaque control, and curing oral mucosal lesions. The Greek scientists reported Aloe vera as a universal panacea. The dentists use Aloe vera as an herbal remedy in dentistry. However future research should be aimed to determine its preparation methods, time of application, optimal concentration, and its effect on the oral cavity. This paper gives a review of the uses of this miracle plant and its uses in dentistry.
