  • Abstract

    Since many centuries, Ayurveda regarded neem (Azadirachta indica Family: Meliaceae) as a cure for many ailments, predominantly due to its superb antimicrobial activity. It has been a practice since time immemorial to use tender twigs of neem as dentifrice. Looking as these facts the possibility of developing an authentic dentifrice from neem extract and formulations were formulated and evaluated for their antimicrobial activity and some formulations were found to have significant antimicrobial activity. For the present work the tender stems of neem were specifically chosen so that most specific results could be obtained especially when neem powder is selected for developing dentifrices. In addition to the antimicrobial activity it was thought that the small fibers in the powder may act as abrasive thereby potentiating the activity of the dentifrice. The scope of the present work is limited to testing the antibacterial activity of neem extract and neem powder in a tooth paste form.
