The exploration of botanicals used in traditional medicine may lead to the development of novel preventive or therapeutic strategies for oral health. The present scientific evidence based review is focused on the possible role of Ayurveda in the management of various orofacial disorders. Considering the importance of various traditional or CAM systems, the present review of literature is focused on the possible role of Ayurveda in the management of various orofacial disorders.
