Abstract

Teeth are an integral part of the human body, not only for a contagious smile but also for chewing food well. Dental caries is one of the most common oral diseases in humans worldwide. However, dental caries, especially early childhood caries, is still a serious health problem in developing countries. An Ayurvedic remedy plays an effective agent in the treatment of carious teeth, owing to its ability to inhibit the growth and accumulation on the surface of the tooth. This would prevent the accumulation of acids on the surface of the tooth, and thus the further demineralization and the breakdown of the tooth enamel. In The present article we have tried to describe the role of Ayurveda in the management of dental hygiene.
