Pediatric Dental Care in Ayurveda

Every child has to face dental issues and hence they have always been an important concern in pediatric practice. Also, owing to the peculiarities of children, management of dental conditions is more challenging in children than adults. In Ayurvedic texts, although the pediatric dental care has been described at various places, but the subject matter is largely found scattered and hence an attempt has been made here to concisely present the available descriptions in a systematic manner.
Key words: Ayurveda, Children, Dental care, Gandusha, Kavala.
