So maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things one can do for teeth and gums. Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean to prevent oro-dental problems, like dental caries, gingivitis, tarter and bad breath etc. In Ayurvedic classics we get an elaborate explanation about the oral cavity, diseases affecting the parts of oral cavity, etiological factor along with its management. Ayurvedic ancient acharyas not only told the aetio-pathogenesis & treatment, but they also highlighted about how to maintain the good oral hygiene in Dinachari Adhyaaya (daily regimens). In this paper one of the oral hygiene maintaining procedure i.e Gandusha and Kavala (gargling) have been discussed.
