Shitada, one of Dantamoolagata roga (~gum disorders), can be correlated with gingivitis based on similar symptomatology. A 30-year-old male patient presented to the outpatient department of an Ayurveda hospital with the complaints of bleeding, inflamed, mild blackish discolored gums associated with halitosis for three years. The condition was managed by Raktamokshana by Prachchanna vidhi (~bloodletting by scarification or multiple incisions), Pratisarana (~rubbing of medicated paste over gums) with Priyangvadi churna mixed with Madhu (~honey), and Triphala churna orally with lukewarm water. The total treatment period was 30 days, and the patient was followed up for the next two months. Satisfactory improvement was noticed after the treatment.
