    Patients with oro-dental diseases like gingivitis, periodontal disease, bleeding gums and oral infections are at increased risk of dysphasia and leads to patient noncompliance. In such conditions it is also necessary to give rapid action and avoidance of first pass metabolism which is made possible by formulating Mouth dissolving tablets of Metronidazole. The mouth dissolving tablets of metronidazole was prepared by direct compression technique. Bitter taste of drug is successfully masked by b-cyclodextrin (b-CD) complex and is also useful to enhance the solubility which was confirm by phase solubility analysis with constant value 107.52 M-1 .FT-IR spectroscopy study confirm the formation of inclusion complex , and compatibility of polymers Metronidazole was also confirmed by FTIR Spectroscopy studies. The tablets showed good weight uniformity (RSD< 1%), The Drug content uniformity of the Tablet was found to comply with the official specification, tablet Hardness varied from 3.5 ±0.1 to 4.0 ± 0.4 and tablets passed the friability test. The tablet formulation which contain SSG alone and combination of SSG- Bamboomanna showed good result for wetting time, in-vitro dispersion Time, disintegration time, mouth feel and dissolution studies.
