    Background: The use of herbal medicine is increasing with the increase in the development of drug resistance among bacterial population. Herbal medicines are safe with no side effects and have significant action against bacteria and other microorganisms. Materials and Methods: Bacterial strains used are multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas, Enterococci, and Staphylococci and they are obtained from the Department of Microbiology, Saveetha Dental College and maintained in nutrient agar slope at 4°C. Moreover, extracts are taken from plant leaf powder. Results: The investigation of the antibacterial activity of ayurvedic preparations on Pseudomonas, Enterococci, and Staphylococci was done by agar well diffusion method. Mean zones of inhibition of different concentrations were measured and compared with the control. Conclusion: Based on the results recorded in the present findings, it concluded that ayurvedic extracts have potential antimicrobial agent on human oral pathogenic microorganisms, and hence, the herbal drug may serve as one of the potential antimicrobial agents. Further studies on isolation of active principles from the plant are needed.
