According to researchers at Jerusalem Hebrew University’s Hadassah School of Dental Medicine in Israel. The study, "The Efficacy of Aged Garlic Extract on Gingivitis — A Randomized Clinical Trial", found daily consumption of aged garlic extract reduced inflammation and bleeding. During the 4-month study, those given AGE showed a significant reduction of gingival inflammation and bleeding, while the placebo group’s conditions remained unchanged. Research on the effects of garlic on periodontitis is currently underway. The findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Dentistry and presented at the International Garlic Symposium in Hiroshima, Japan. At Synergy Dental Group we are always looking at the newest research and want to stay ahead of the curve. We find this study exciting because it is something tangible that patients can do to improve their oral health.
