Periodontal dressing is the material used in post-surgical wounds. These dressings do not contain ingredients that can trigger healing, expensive and contains eugenol which can cause allergic reactions. Non-eugenol dressings are less able to adhere to the mucosa. Thus, it takes a natural dressing materials, is antibacterial, strong retention, cheap, and can accelerate healing. Ambon banana gel can be used for alternative of natural periodontal dressing because it contains several types of phytochemicals such as saponin, flavonoid, ascorbic acid and tanin which can accelerate the wound healing process. The purpose of this research is to test the effect of the application of banana gel to increase wound healing process in the injured area post gingivectomy on wistar rat (Rattusnorvegicus). The study begins by making extract of banana tree made into a banana gel in several doses, 50%, 75%, and 100% applied on 36 male Wistar rats (Rattus norvegicus) post-gingivectomy. The gel is applicated in experiment group for 1 week to determine the acceleration of healing compared with control group which were not given banana gel. In the control group maximum healing is on day-7, 50% is on day-5, 75% is on day-3, and 100% is the most effective increase healing process on day-1 (ANOVA, p=0, 000) p<0, 05. Conclusion of this research is Ambon banana gel can effectively improve the process of wound healing post-gingivectomy which increases acceleration of several variables include macrophages, neutrophils, lymphocytes, and capillary.
