ABSTRACT

Sheetada/gingivitis is a worldwide problem since ancient era. Even now the dental and gingival diseases are more common in the society because of lack of awareness, improper maintenance of oral hygiene, excess chewing of tobacco, change in food habits etc. Sheetada is a disease of dantavesta caused due to the vitiation of kapha and rakta and is characterized by spontaneous bleeding from gums without any injury or cause, associated with bad smell, soft and moist gums which turn in to blackish colour, making it troublesome to the patient. Clinical picture of sheetada can be compared, with gingivitis, which is an inflammation of the gums, usually caused by a bacterial infection. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, where the inflammation results in tissue destruction and alveolar bone resorption, which can ultimately lead to tooth loss. Gingivitis and periodontitis are major causes of tooth loss in adults. Modern management of gingivitis is not satisfactory, as repeated scaling which is one of the treatment modalities of gingivitis is harmful for teeth. Therefore the present study was planned to evaluate the effect of panchavalkala kwatha kavala in the treatment of sheetada and in improving the oral hygiene.

Keywords: Sheetada ,gingivitis, Kavala, Panchavalkalkwatha.
