    Aim: Nanotechnology is one of the most active fields in researches nowadays in modern material science and technology. The present leads to the synthesis of Aloe vera silver bionanoparticles and studying its antimicrobial property against Streptococcus mutans and Enterococcus faecalis. Materials and Methods: Siver bio nano particles were synthesized used Aleo vera extract and they were characterized using ultra violet – visible spectroscopy. The anti microbial property of the synthesized bio nano particles were screened by agar well diffusion technique and the zone of inhibition were recorded and compared with positive control amoxycillin. Results: The antibacterial activity of silver nanoparticles with A. vera extract was moderate compared to that of control – amoxicillin. Conclusion: Silver bionanoparticles of A. vera extract were found to be less effective than the control amoxicillin. Thus, by increasing the concentration of A. vera extract in the nanoparticle, the effectiveness of A. vera as an antibacterial agent can be assessed in future.
