Tooth Extraction by Jalandhara Bandha Yoga requires No Anesthesia! No Injection! No Spray! No Antibiotics! & No Analgesics! It is purely a combination of Yoga & Ayurvedic Technique.

Yoga and Ayurveda are the ancient science of Indian Wisdom. As a remedy now a day’s people are looking towards it for many of their ailments. Ayurveda not only deals with medical line of treatment but it also deals with surgical treatment. We get many references in Ayurveda regarding surgeries being carried out by Sushrutha. Hence Sushrutha is rightly called as “The Father of Surgery”. He has done many surgeries like Laporotomy, Craniotomy, Cataract Operation, Plastic surgery, Haemmorrhoidectomy; Painless Tooth Extraction etc. Though there was no Anesthesia in those days he used to carry out surgeries by using some yogic procedure & by manipulating some marmasthanas (vital points) in the body. One such example for this kind of surgery by yoga technique is “Painless Tooth Extraction by Jalandhara Bandha Yoga”.

Tooth Extraction by Jalandhara Bandha Yoga requires No Anesthesia! No Injection! No Spray! No Antibiotics! & No Analgesics! It is purely a combination of Yoga & Ayurvedic Technique.

So what is this Jalandhara Bandha Yoga? How to extract tooth without anesthesia? What are the benefits of this procedure?
In yoga mainly there are three types of Bandha i.e. Moola, Uddiyana & Jalandhara Bandha. Moola Bandha is the one which is performed for the lower part of the body. Uddiyana for the middle part of the body & Jalandhara Bandha is the one performed for the upper part of the body.

Jala means network. It is a network of arteries, veins & nerves. Bandha means to Lock. So Jhalandhara bandha means locking or blocking of the nerve plexus, arteries & veins around the neck. This technique of blocking the nerve plexus is made use for the extraction of the tooth without anesthesia. This Yogic Tooth Extraction can be explained in three stages.

This technique of blocking the nerve plexus is made use for the extraction of the tooth without anesthesia. This Yogic Tooth Extraction can be explained in three stages.

1. Poorva Karma (Pre Operative Procedure)
In this stage first the patient is examined thoroughly, and the decision is taken whether the teeth should be treated conservatively or it needs extraction. If it needs extraction then the patient is educated priorly about the procedure of the yogic teeth extraction & he is prepared both mentally & physically. While extraction special care is taken, if the patient is krisha (lean), durbala (weak), Vriddha (aged) or suffering from any neurological problems.

2. Pradhana Karma (Operative Procedure)
Patient is made to sit in sukhasana or padmasana on wooden plank of 2-3” height. He should be calm, relaxed & should concentrate on Vishuddha Chakra. Then he is asked to hold his both the knees firmly with his palm & fingers. After that the Ayurvedic Dental Surgeon stands behind the patient & puts cloth over his head & bends his head towards chest, so that the chin gets locked to the supra sternal notch or Jugular notch. Danta Vaidya (Dental Surgeon) then puts pressure over the Sushumna Nadi (Spinal Cord) with his left knee & puts pressure over trigeminal nerve with his left hand. Then the Patients head is slightly moved up & down for 2-3 times, then the head is lifted & tooth is extracted by using Simha Mukha Yantra (Lion Forceps) (who’s description is mentioned in our classical text Sushrutha Samhita which is four thousand years old !) or with any other suitable Sandhamsha Yantra’s.

It is said that Vatadritae nasti ruja, i.e. there is no pain with out vitiation of vata dosha. Here vata is controlled by doing jalandhara bandha which in turn blocks the pain path & thus helps in painless tooth extraction.

3. Paschath Karma (Post Operative Procedure)
In this step utmost care of the patient is taken to reduce the chances of infection & to promote wound healing. Hence Patient is given with vrana ropana & raktastambhaka gandoosha & dressing is done with suitable Ayurvedic Antiseptic Drugs. Then nasya (nasal medication) is given with medicated oil prepared out of vidari, yasti, ksheera etc. Patient is advised to take snigdha (unctuous), swadu (sweet), sheetha (cold), & mrudu (soft) foods. And also he is advised not to spit forcibly, not to use hot & spicy foods for 24 hours.

As part of public awareness program and propagation of Ayurvedic Dentistry, we have conducted many Ayurvedic Dental camps other than our regular Dental OPD in our Ayurvedic Dental Wing of Sri Sri College of Ayurvedic Sciences & Research Hospital and given many demonstration of yogic tooth extraction across the state and out side. Many of our patients had different experiences and they were astonished.

We would like to share the experience of one of our patients experience in his own words.

Sharing My Experience – K. Ranganath, B.S.K 2nd Stage, B’lore.

Observing my decayed tooth our president suggested me to bare with it till monthly meeting. I thought I could not wait till then and felt jittery when an Ayurvedic Doctor would extract. I imagined horrible moments as a victim of demonstration. But, then, I had given my words.

On January 21st I had the privilege to a memorable experience when Dr.Vivek, who successfully treats dental problems especially for Asthma, BP, Diabetic and Cardiac patients without any pain, antibiotics or anesthesia by jalandhar bandha yoga method, gave a demonstration. I was the second of two persons to under go extraction. I was asked to sit on a wooden plank and the Doctor gently pressed at two points on my right and left shoulders for a moment. Then bending head he held my chin tightly against chest for a minute. Lifting up he opened my mouth and removed two teeth with pliers as if plucking a fruit in a jiffy. I had a mouth wash with an herbal drink and clutched a ball of cotton between jaws. Yes, every thing was over with in 2-3 minutes and believe me without any pain. I was simply amazed.

Dr.Vivek. J
M.S.(Ayu), Danta Vaidya Visharada
