If your teeth feel sensitive or your gums bleed when you brush, finding the right toothpaste is more than a simple choice to prevent tooth decay.

People with sensitive teeth or those who suffer from chronic mouth ulcers need special toothpastes for these special needs. Aloe Vera toothgel is now in the market to provide a solution to sensitive teeth and gum problems.

The Academy of General Dentistry in its May/June 2009 issue of the General Dentistry Journal, has stated that Aloe Vera toothgel has combined properties that tackle the problem of sensitive teeth and gums as it provides cavity-fighting protection.

Dental experts and professionals have argued about the capacity of Aloe Vera toothgel to eradicate disease-causing bacteria and other harmful microorganisms in the mouth. The Academy has finally furnished the answers and attests that Aloe Vera toothgel is proven to be effective in fighting germs found in the mouth. A recent experiment tested the germ-fighting properties of 2 well-known toothpaste brands alongside Aloe Vera toothgel and found the latter to be equally or even more effective in controlling and eliminating cavity-causing microflora in the mouth and gums.

The anti-microbial properties of Aloe Vera toothgel is due to the fact that it contains natural anthraquinones – chemical compounds which also provide analgesic, anti-fungal, and anti-viral activity when used in low doses. It’s also favored by people who have sensitive teeth since Aloe Vera toothgel contains no harsh abrasive components found in regular toothpastes.

Overall physical health is directly related to oral and dental health. Gingivitis or gum disease has been directly linked to more serious medical conditions such as diabetes, stroke, heart and lung diseases. Harmful germs and bacterial build-up in the mouth can cause periodontal disease and premature tooth loss. In addition to that, disease-causing bacteria is carried in the bloodsteam and can spread infection to the other organs of the body.

Actual data gathering on this was conducted by Emory University together with the Center for Disease Control. Principals of the study found out that people who had gum disease and other oral infections had an almost 50% chance of dying earlier that those without the disease.

Aloe Vera toothgel is effective in the treatment and prevention of gingivitis and periodontitis. It has powerful antiseptic characteristics that can reach all areas of the mouth to kill disease-causing bacteria. Its natural anti-inflammatory properties on the other hand, help lessen bleeding gums and soft tissue swelling.

Not all Aloe Vera toothgel formulas contain these necessary medicinal properties however. In fact only a few varieties out of over 300 aloe species have these oral health attributes.

The International Aloe Science Council was established to regulate and ensure quality control procedures in the production of Aloe Vera health care products. It provides certifications and seals of quality to manufacturers who match or exceed industry standards and provides consumers with a guarantee that they are buying industry compliant products.

Forever Bright Aloe Vera Toothgel is the first toothgel to have been awarded the Council quality seal. It is fluoride-free, therefore it is gentle and non-abrasive to the gums and teeth. It also contains Bee Propolis, a natural healing antibiotic. Forever Bright strengthens, nourishes and protects both teeth and gums from bacteria build-up as it fights plaque and whitens teeth without the use of irritating bleaching agents. Forever Bright is available in a mint flavored gel formula which both adults and children will love.
