I read with great interest your article about periodontitis. I can personally endorse the advice you gave about the gentle healing power of aloe vera.
There is available in this country a toothgel made with 100 per cent stabilised aloe vera gel, Forever Bright. Since using it, my gums have never been so healthy and are no longer receding.
The same company also makes Aloe Vera Gelly which is excellent for children who have to wear a brace on their teeth. Their gums can become very sore particularly when the brace has been adjusted. The jelly eases the pain very quickly and often healing has been achieved overnight. Our local orthodontist is very impressed.
I can supply these products to any readers who have trouble finding them locally. I Gale, 15 Epsom Drive, Ipswich, Suffolk IP1 6RS........
