ABSTRACT

Oral health is reflection of the health of entire body. Diseases related to oral cavity are among the major health problem all over the world and their incidences are on rise especially in developing countries. Poor oral hygiene can have hazardous consequences on physical and psychological well-being and can contribute to various systemic diseases too.

It can be validated by the reference of Dincharya (daily regimen) in which oral health care is executed by the use of twigs of herbal plants for Danta dhavana (brushing) followed by Jihwa nirlekhana (Tongue scrapping), Pratisarana, use of Gandusha and Kavala as a part of routine practice to strengthen and prevent the diseases of Mukha (oral cavity). In the present paper, an attempt has been made to meet the challenges in oral healthcare by exploring the various therapeutic procedures and herbs advised in Ayurveda for the preservation and management of oral health.

Keywords: Oral health, Chewing stick, Jihwa-nirlekhana, Pratisarana, Gandusha.
