Materials and Methods: This research is a non-laboratory experimental research which examines the effectiveness of using 90% Aloe Vera gel extract in post-odontectomy wounds. Wound healing score is assessed clinically on the first, third and seventh day after odontectomy by observing signs of inflammation. Each sign of inflammation will be given a score of 0, 1, 2 or 3 based on clinical observations made by researcher using the Gingival Index score. Results: Mann-Whitney test was used to analyze the data. The result of this study is there is a difference in wound healing time of post-odontectomy wounds when applied with 90% Aloe Vera gel extract and those not applied. The average Gingival Index score in the observed control group was 1.50 with a standard deviation of 0.504 (1.50 ± 0.504). The average observed in the treatment group was 1.65 with a standard deviation of 1.147 (1.65 ± 1.147).
