Result: After scaling the Dantasharkara in both groups was persistent on third day but after 90 days only 4 patients had the problem in trial group and 25 patients in control group. Dantaveshtashoth, putiasyata and puyaraktasrava were relieved but in the next follow up, recurrence was observed in control group whereas in trial group there was no recurrence.
