  • Abstract

    Hydro alcoholic dry extracts of Gymnema sylvestre, Mentha arvensis, Solanum surratense, for treatment of a dental caries were screened for antimicrobial activity by Agar well diffusion method against Streptococcus mutans, Staphylococcus aureus,Streptococcus mitis, and Candida albicans. Among them the extracts of Gymnema sylvestre dry extract showed strong antimicrobial activity against the bacteria and fungi with the zone of inhibition ranges from 16-20mm at 25mg/ml. The other extracts such as Solanum surratense, Mentha arvensis showed concentration–dependent activity against all the tested micro-organisms with the zone of inhibition ranges from 12-24mm at various concentrations.
