Tooth Decay - 6 Ways Ayurveda Can Help!

Tooth Decay - 6 Ways Ayurveda Can Help!

The most common problem affecting the mouth is caries which happens as a result of bacteria acting on the food deposits on the teeth, which produces acid that attacks the tooth structure. The result is loss of tooth structure and formation of pits and cavities which allows more food deposits and causes more decay.

Decay development depends on a number of factors including heredity, tooth structure, oral hygiene habits, food habits, etc. There are certain simple things that can be done at home which can delay the onset of the decay and also reduce its progression and severity.

If that sounds interesting, read on to know more.

  1. Clove and sesame oil: Clove oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antibacterial properties. A few drops of clove oil mixed with half teaspoon of sesame oil can be dabbed on the affected tooth with a cotton ball. This can be repeated every night, both for relief as well as for preventing further decay spread. Alternately, a whole clove can be chewed for some time and then placed under the tongue for continued relief.
  2. Salt: Known for its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, use a rinse made with salt and warm water and swish around the affected tooth at least 3 times a day. Alternately, make a paste of salt and lemon juice and apply on the affected tooth.
  3. Garlic: A paste with about 4 cloves of garlic and rock salt applied on the affected tooth provides great relief. Raw garlic can be eaten regularly for multiple benefits, including prevention from tooth decay. Rubbing raw garlic on the affected tooth also provides temporary relief from pain.
  4. Neem: Still used as a toothbrush by many rural people, chewing on a tender neem bark yields powerful oils and compounds that help keep the teeth against bacterial attack. The high fiber content is also effective against reducing plaque formation.
  5. Swishing with oils: Sesame, coconut or sunflower oil can be used for this purpose. On an empty stomach in the morning, use a tablespoon of one of these oils to swish for about 10 minutes, take care not to swallow it. This should be done before brushing the teeth. This helps reduce gum disease, bad breath and reduce cavities.
  6. Mustard oil: Two teaspoons each of mustard oil and rock salt can be mixed and applied to the tooth regularly for relief from dental decay pain.

The next time you have a tooth ache, it is not always necessary to rush to the dentist. Try these home remedies to get some relief, which will give you time to go to the dentist.

Hi lybrate-user. The best treatment is you should get to the dentist and get RCT and save the tooth. If it is possible. Don't wait till the tooth starts aching. But the RCT will not save other tooths for carries. Once you are done with dentist treatment. Start homoeopathic treatment to stop the caries further. You may consult through Lybrate.

It shows weak enamel and caries. Caries can be corrected by filling only. For pain it seems exposed nerve endings are there. Weaker teeth may be due to various reasons. Pl send dental surgeon 's check up report.

Hi, Dental cavity is a very common issue now a days. There is no such anti cavity toothpaste in the market, only your regular two times brushing and flossing, Eating healthy foods like fruits, green vegetables etc, Limiting the consumption of acidic foods and beverages like tea and coffee, fizzy drinks etc and most important Limiting the consumption of sticky foods like pizza, chocolates, toffee etc. Look for a fluoridated toothpaste as fluoride plays an important role in keeping your tooth healthy. Visit your concerned dentist every 6 months so your oral diagnosis can be done and treatment can be planned accordingly. Regards.
