A Clinical Study in the Management of Dantaveshta (Pyorrhoea) with Bakul Twak Powder and Kaishore Guggul

Aparna Sharma, Ish Sharma



The disease Pyorrhoea is a common disease, leading to damaged gums and loosened teeth [1]. It usually runs a chronic course, affecting the peridontium i.e. the tissues that surround and support the teeth. Ayurveda can be preventive and curative [2]. As per Ayurvedic texts, it can be correlated to Dantaveshta which is associated with secretion of pus and blood from the gums. This single blind, randomized clinical study was conducted on 30 patients from the Rajiv Gandhi Government PG Ayurveda College and Hospital, Paprola, Himachal Pradesh, for 45 days. The patients were diagnosed on the basis of both, subjective and objective criteria of Danta Veshta. The patients were divided into three groups; Group 1 was treated with Bakul Twak powder local application, Group 2 was treated with Kaishore Guggul tablets orally and the Group 3 was the combined group treated both with Bakul Twak and Kaishore Guggul. It showed statistically significant relief in almost all signs and symptoms.
