    Aim of the Study: The aim of the study was to assess the antibacterial effect of nilavembu extract in dental plaque samples. Methodololgy: This study was carried out in the Saveetha Dental College Outpatient, Department of Periodontics and Microbiology Laboratory. The plaque sample was collected using the curette and transported into the tryptic soy broth, then inoculated into 100%, 200%, and 400% nilavembu extract in the nutrient agar medium. Plaque sample was also placed in the nutrient agar medium without nilavembu extract by streaking method. Then, it was cultured for 48 h, and the bacterial count was noted. Results: The study shows that the bacterial growth was reduced by the use of nilavembu extract. Bacterial count without using nilavembu extract was higher than that of medium with nilavembu extract. Conclusion: Nilavembu has the ability to reduce the bacterial growth. Nilavembu can be used as an adjunct to scaling and root planing for the treatment of periodontal diseases.
