Dental Caries – Krimi Danta

कृष्णश्छिद्रीचलःस्रावीससंरम्भोमहारुजः |
अनिमित्तरुजोवाताद्विज्ञेयःकृमिदन्तकः ||

Dental caries is perhaps the most prevalent chronic disease. The outcome of the disease is dental decay. The disease is the result of a complex interaction between acid producing tooth-adherent bacteria and fermentable carbohydrates. Over time, the acids in the dental plaque may demineralize enamel and dentin in the fissures and the smooth surfaces of the tooth. The earliest visual sign of dental caries is the so-called white spot lesion. If demineralization continues, the surfaces of the white spot will cavitate, resulting in a cavity.

In Ayurveda it can be correlated to Krimi Danta and it is defined as discolouration of tooth caused by vitiated Vata Dosha.

Causes of Dental Caries

Includes factors such as

  • High Numbers of Cariogenic Bacteria
  • High Frequency Sugar Consumption
  • Inadequate Salivary Flow
  • Insufficient Fluoride Exposure
  • Poor Oral Hygiene
  • Poverty

Symptoms of Dental Caries

The signs and symptoms of cavities vary, depending on their extent and location. When a cavity is just beginning, you may not have any symptoms at all. As the decay gets larger, it may cause signs and symptoms such as:

  • Toothache, spontaneous pain or pain that occurs without any apparent cause
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Mild to sharp pain when eating or drinking something sweet, hot or cold
  • Visible holes or pits in your teeth
  • Brown, black or white staining on any surface of a tooth
  • Pain when bites down

Diet in Dental caries

Pathya (Do’s)

  • Do use a soft-bristled toothbrush. These bristles are easier on gums and they make it easier to reach under the gums.
  • Do be sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day. While brushing after every meal is optimal, brushing twice a day should suffice.
  • Do clean your gums and your entire mouth, not just your teeth.
  • Do make sure to floss as well. It’s important for keeping both your teeth and your gums healthy.
  • Do eat healthier and avoid foods that can cause tooth decay.
  • Do take steps to stop any night time teeth grinding. 
  • Do go to the dentist once every six months. 

Apathya (Don’ts)

  • Don’t take a brushing session off. Even if you’re busy or feeling tired, make sure to brush at least twice a day.
  • Don’t skip flossing. Flossing is a vital part of oral hygiene and it’s helpful for dislodging food particles trapped between your teeth.
  • Don’t forget to wear a mouth guard if you’re going to play a sport with the potential for dental injuries.
  • Don’t smoke. This can discolour teeth and increase the likelihood of tooth decay.
  • Don’t ignore your diet. Eating too many acidic or sugary foods can cause tooth decay and other oral problems.
  • Don’t wait to see your dentist if you have bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity, or any other oral issues
