VARA-DELGADO, Ana et al. Chamomile use in the treatment of periodontal diseases. AMC [online]. 2019, vol.23, n.3, pp.403-414. ISSN 1025-0255.

Background:

It has been shown that chamomile also acts on dentobacterial plaque, the main risk factor for periodontal disease and is used for the treatment of acute and chronic periodontal processes.

Of these, 52 selected citations were used to perform the review, 40 of them from the last five years.
