    Dental caries- Krimi Danta

    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.

    Do’s (Pathya) inDental caries

    • 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. 

    Don’ts (Apathya) inDental caries

    • 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.
