Another homeopathic application is a toothpaste which I formulated called Aloe-Dent. The uniqueness of this toothpaste lies in the fact that 48% of this product is composed of a stabilized Aloe Vera gel. The soothing, anti-inflammatory, and healing effects of the aloe gel plus the addition of homeopathics make this toothpaste truly therapeutic. The homeopathic ingredients in Aloe-Dent are:
- Arnica montana
- Calcarea carbonica
- Calcarea fluorica
- Calcarea phosphorica
- Hepar sulphuris
- Mercurius solubilis
Proper treatment of gingivitis is essential to prevent a progression of gum disease to the roots of the teeth resulting in periodontitis, where the underlying supporting bone is affected. Homeopathic treatment of gingivitis, however, will onlv be effective as long as appropriate oral hygiene measures are followed by the patient.
As more dentists discover the effectiveness of using holistic treatment for their patients, homeopathic remedies will prove to make an increasingly important contribution to dental health as well as to the overall well-being of the patient.
