Neem means mouth health

March 3, 2012

Azadirachta indica (neem) has been used in India for many years for the treatment of several diseases. Neem has antiseptic activity and the purpose of the research by  Chatterjee et al, was to assess the efficacy of neem regarding its antigingivitis effect.

The results demonstrate that Neem was equally effective as other common anti-gingivitis medicines and may be used as an adjunct therapy in treating plaque induced gingivitis.
