  • Abstract

    Microbial resistance to most of the antibiotics commonly used to treat oral infections has been documented. The resistance of microorganisms against the traditional antibiotics needs urgent attention for the development of the new drug molecules. It is well documented from ancient times that active principles from plant origin have been used as medicines for various diseases and microbial infections. The effect of plant extracts on bacteria has been studied by a large number of researchers in different parts of the world. The antimicrobial activity of phytochemicals against oral bacteria has been reviewed here.
