Manoj Advaith: Rock salt and mustard oil works quite well to provide relief from sensitive teeth. Take a spoon of powdered rock salt and add little mustard oil to it so that it becomes a thick paste. Now, with the help of finger, apply this paste both on the sensitive teeth and gums. In fact, you can apply it on all the teeth. Take some powdered asafoetida(hingu) and add half a lemon juice to it.

Gary Yuen: Does neem help sensitivity or is it mainly for cleaning? There's a book series called Ethnobotany of India, listing foods and herbs uses by various people in different areas. Seems that there are many tree sticks used for tooth cleaning. I'll try to find the list. Are any herbs known to help? Is it possible to even regrow ennamel?
Vd. Jignesh Thakkar: dant harsh happens because of vayu....and taila is best treatment for vayu. so tail gandush is best for dantharsh.
simple til tail kaval or gandush.
Vd. Pulkit D. Patel: Simple til tail gandusha also give good results
Gary Yuen: chapter 13 covers teeth cleaning, toothbrushes, toothpastes and powders, and various problems. Would like an opinion about the various herbs.
Dr.Satish Panda: All toothpaste available in the market are only for cleaning the oral cavity. So,Taila Gandu or Kawal has medicinal properties. As Danta has Vata sthana.
Dr. Shantanandkumar: In our village till using Neem for brush. Some of them prepare the powder by burning outer covering of badam Neem Babbul in ash form
Dr.Sanjeev Gupta: Gum-Tone tooth powder , a product of Charak pharma , is very useful in tooth ach .
Dr.Satish Panda: In danta chalan(loose tooth) ,apply Taila Nasya.
Dr. V B. Maheshwari: Don't know the ingredients but Gurukul Kangdi's Payokil is also having good results in tooth sensitivity. Is vata is the only cause for teeth sensitivity and which vata is responsible for this?
Dr.Satish Panda: Udan Vata is responsible
Croatia Branko Markovic: Tila tailam gandusha is working very good. But this is even usually for a lot of people hard thing to do.. we have tooth paste with Mediterranean herbs and colloidal silver which is also working very nice.
Ayulink: I want to ask the same. Is it only Vata? or any thing else?
Croatia Branko Markovic: Isn’t it that along cold, lot of people find that they are bothered by very sour items?
Ayulink: I have used it. Really fantastic. But I have no problem of tooth sensitivity, so dont know this toothpaste's effect on it. But in general the toothpaste, referred by Branko Markovic is very useful.
Croatia Branko Markovic: It is also good for inflamed gums as well receding gums
Dr.Satish Panda: Main dosa involved is Vata,but Kapha and pitta are also responsible.
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: Yes Vaat pradhanya is there in hypersensitivity of tooth . I think urdhvang means upper body is kafa pradhan so both are responsible. Warm til teil gandush is good for sensitive teeth. Also any warm thing soothes sensitivity. IRIMEDADI teil also has good results.
Dr. V B. Maheshwari: I think दन्त हर्ष is ayurvedic terminology for teeth sensitivity. Doshas which quality is responsible for *Harsh*
Vd. Hardik bhatt: I think dant harsh is vat pittaj disease .
Croatia Branko Markovic: If there is sensitivity to sour items then pitta should be involved also?
Anoop S. Anand: Kaval and gandoosh with sesame oil/coconut oil should act good for dant harsh...temporarily clove oil can give relief but
Ayulink: Any hypothesis, how oil gandush or ayurvedic tooth powders subsides dant-harsh? Sensitivity?
Dr. P S. Desai: According to Ayurveda Dant Harsh due to Vat and oil balances vat. Other thing is Luke warm oil also nourishes and help to increase local blood flow which help to maintain oral hygiene. Kaval and gandush also removes debris or food particles from teeth which causes irritation and Dant Harsh sensation. Most ayurvedic tooth paste and powder contains menthol as a contain which acts as counter irritant on gums and gives temporary relief in Dant harsh
It's my view
Ayulink: Thanks. Now the question which is asked by Branko Ji, also need to focus. Involvement of pitta?
Dr. P S. Desai: As we know pitta is responsible for paak. So some times Dant harsh is associated with recurrent stomatitis and gingivitis. In that condition we should also think about pitta and treat it
Ayulink: How about clove oil?
Dr. P S. Desai: Clove oil contains eugenol. Which have local anesthetic effect. That's why it gives temporary relief. It also acts as mild anti inflammatory.
Anoop S. Anand: prolonged use of clove oil may lead to drying of tooth..tooth may powder..
Croatia Branko Markovic: Sour quality which is heating
Ayulink: Similarly with camphor?
Dr. P S. Desai: Yes menthol acts as local analgesic and counter irritant. It's also acts as calcium Chanel blocker which block the pain sensation for some time by blocking the calcium Chanel in nerve conduction
Dr. Dayanand Bothre: Harsh is gun of sour ( amla )Ras
Dr Mahjabeen: So is it helps in nerve conduction by blocking calcium channels?
Dr. P S. Desai: Blocks pain sensation for some times
Dr Mahjabeen: What about nerve conduction
Vd Sandeep Kumar: Application of amrut dhara. And roasted hingu...In gum pain is useful
Dr Mahjabeen: Rsted cardomum its ash catch tightly inbetween jaws reduces pain
Gary Yuen: I think ash is important, perhaps more from calcium containing substances. There are studies of xylitol (an artificial sweetener in chewing gum) and other substances effecting remineralization of teeth. I think it may be possible to heal senstivity and cavities to some degree. I have sensitive teeth from previous bad habits and notice with a strict diet, there are no problems. I think the purpose of khadiradi gatika pills in Caraka Ci26.199 that are left in the mouth until they dissolve is also healing.
