  • Abstract

    Plants and herbs are used to treat diseases globally before the existence of modern clinical drugs. They can be beneficial for the therapeutic purposes and used as precursors in the synthesis of drugs. The importance of mouth and teeth cleanliness has been recognized from the earliest days of civilization to the 21st century. Patients and oral health practitioners are faced with a multitude of mouthwash products containing many different active and inactive ingredients. Current trends have witnessed a popular inclination toward the use of herbal products in the field of medicine and dentistry mainly because they are naturally occurring and have fewer side effects. Herbal mouthwash was recently introduced with the intention of controlling the plaque. Plaque and microorganisms in the mouth are the major contributing factors that induce various orodental infections. Studies prove that herbal extracts are the typical modes of treatment in ancient times when technology and chemicals are still undeveloped. Existing herbal products and extracts such as guava, pomegranate, neem, propolis, tulsi, green tea, cranberry, and grapefruit are likely to be tested as individual and as combination for animal toxicity, anti-microbial activity, dental plaque, and other dental complications. Hence, this multifunctional herbal mouthwash helps to improve the oral hygiene in healthy individuals that prevent any type of orodental complications thereon in near future. This review is an attempt to outline such natural substances, which may be used as effective mouthwashes.
