WHO’s report on the Global Problem of Oral Diseases, that oral diseases such as dental caries (tooth decay), periodontitis (gum disease) and oral and pharyngeal cancers are global health problem in both the industrialized and the developing countries, especially among poorer communities. The mouth can be considered an ideal environment for the growth of microorganisms, since it is warm and moist and has a constant influx of nutrients through saliva and food intake. Lactobacilli are known to favour the dorsum of the tongue, while Streptococcus mutans requires a solid, non-shedding surface for colonization, as demonstrated by the rapid appearance of S. mutans in the mouth of toothless infants when obturators are inserted to fix cleft palates. This complex relationship even consists of bacteria whose presence is contingent on other “pioneer” bacterial species. It has even been demonstrated that certain oral microorganisms can cooperate in a mutuality manner for a common benefit, as when species collaborate by using different species-specific enzymes to break down complex host molecules that could not be metabolized by a single species. In this study we have tried to find out the herbal solution of dental caries by checking their antimicrobial activity.
