Abstract

Dental caries/Tooth decay is progressive destruction of tooth structure, leading to tooth ache. Tooth ache is the most common type of orofacial pain and when severe it is considered a dental emergency. Pain killers will be the first option to get rid of pain but use of these pain killers have many adverse effects and also its over prescription leads to kidney disorders, liver disorders etc. and in Ayurveda for the management of pain in Krimidanta it is mentioned that, Krimighna (anti-microbial), Vatagna (which relieves Vata) and Ushnaveerya Dravyas (drugs with hot potency) are to be used which can relieve the toothache and discolouration. Hence here an attempt was made to find out an alternate medicine which is effective, has no contraindications and with no side effects. Here the patient was treated with Dantapichu (soaked cotton swab) with Katuparni Ksheera (milk of Argemone Mexicana Linn.) as a local application. After the treatment, a significant response in various symptoms such as tooth pain, tingling sensation and swelling was observed.
