Between Pancha Tikta kashayam, and Guggulu Tikta Grutham and Sudarshanam the toothache got resolved permanently obviating the need for a root canal.
For many patients who come with a 'root canal' prescription, the healing is much faster. It took longer for me. India needs to reclaim her inheritence of ayurveda.
(Another time when my daughter had her tooth extracted, the dentist had insisted on a course of antibiotics. He said that the wound was very deep, and so he would have to insist on antibiotics this time. Earlier times he had allowed me to follow what ayurvedic medicines were possible. I nodded - but came home and simply applied lots of triphala on the wound. The healing was very fast, and no course of any allopathic drugs were ever needed.)
