Dr. Manish Arora*, Dr. Indrakumar Jagadale and Dr. R P Patwardhan

ABSTRACT

In modern life, due to lack of time and negligence; people tend to neglect the maintenance of Oral hygiene leading to oral hygiene problems. Dantadhavana Upakrama (brushing of teeth‟s) mentioned in Dincharya procedures of Ayurvedic science has important role to play in these situations. Dantadhavana prevent individuals from Mukhdaurgandhya (bad odour), Mukhasyavairasya (improper taste perception), Dantamala (debris), Dantamalinta (plaque) etc. thereby improving the overall all hygiene of oral cavity. Ayurveda emphases on use of variety of drugs for the purpose of Dantadhavana. Present study aimed at comparing Khadira kastha churna and Madhuka kastha churna for Dantadhavana Upakrama in maintenance of oral hygiene. The study was randomized control clinical trial on 60 individuals between the age group 20-50 years of both the sex divided into two groups i.e. group A- 30 individuals were given Khadira (Acacia catechu) Kastha churna and in group B-30 individuals were given Madhuka (madhuca indica) Kastha Churna for Dantadhavana & periodic follow-ups were noted. Khadira kastha churna showed better results in Mukhdaurgandhya (bad odour), Dantamala (debris), Dantamalinta (plaque) and after taste. This may be due to tikta kashaya rasa of khadira and also due to the proven activity of khadira i.e. antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial. Madhuka kastha churna showed better results in improvement in the symptoms of Mukhasyavairasya (improper taste perception) as compare to khadira kastha churna which may be due to madhura, kashaya rasa and madhura vipaka of madhuka. Dantadhavana is one of the important procedures of Dinacharya mentioned in Ayurveda for the maintenance of the health of oral cavity.

Keywords: Dantadhavana, Khadira kastha churna, madhuka kastha churna, oral hygiene
