Abstract

Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest forms of medicinal treatment which is been practised since 12th century BC. Ayurveda aims to accomplish physical, mental, social and spiritual well being by adopting preventive, health promoting and holistic approach towards life. Dental and general health problems can be treated by balancing the three doshas (humors) of the human body-the vata (wind), the pitha (bile) and thekapha (phlegm). Side-effects arising with usage of allopathic medications can be avoided with an alternative therapy like Ayurveda. Treatment for any chronic diseases is made possible by use of herbs and herbal preparations that contain parts of plants or other plant materials as active ingredients in Ayurveda. This review article explores the various herbs used for treating oral diseases and to sustain oral health.
