Dental – oral associated diseases are increasable affecting a considerable portion of the population and is considered one of the major causes of tooth loss, discomfort, mouth odour and loss of confidence. This study focused on the ethnobotanical survey of medicinal plants used in oral hygiene and evaluation of the antimicrobial activities of methanolic extracts of two selected plants from the survey for their efficacy against dental microorganisms. The ethnobotanical survey was carried out in…

Susceptibility pattern of Escherichia coli from urinary tract infections to antibiotics and methanol extracts of Olax subscorpioidea and Sida corymbosa

TLDR
It is shown that MDR E. coli in UTIs are still prevalent and that the roots of O. subscorpioidea and stem of S. corymbosa extracts have good antibacterial activities against the isolates.

Antibacterial activity of aqueous extracts of selected chewing sticks.

TLDR
The extracts of the Vitellaria paradoxa root, Bridellia ferruginea stem and twigs, Garcinia cola stem, Terminalia glaucescens root, Morinda lucida root, and Cnestis ferrugine fruit showed appreciable activity against all classes of bacterial isolates, suggesting that these plants may serve as sources for chemotherapeutic agents for the management of orofacial infections.

An in vitro investigation of the antimicrobial activity of an herbal mouthrinse.

TLDR
The results indicated that all of the mouthrinses demonstrated antimicrobial activity against the bacteria tested, and Herbal Mouth and Gum Therapy mouthrinse produced the largest zones of microbial inhibition when compared to Listerine against all three of theacteria tested.

Antimicrobial activity of garlic, tea tree oil, and chlorhexidine against oral microorganisms.

TLDR
Garlic and tea tree oil might be an alternative to chlorhexidine in fighters against oral microorganisms and antimicrobial activity against mutans streptococci and other oralmicroorganisms.

The antimicrobial potential of 14 natural herbal dentifrices: results of an in vitro diffusion method study.

TLDR
The variation in antimicrobial inhibition among the herbal dentifrices indicates that more research is needed to validate their effectiveness claims, and practitioners are provided with insight into the claims of natural herbal dent ifrices' antimicrobial effects.

STUDIES ON ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITIES OF SOME SELECTED CHEWING STICKS USED IN NORTHEASTERN NIGERIA

TLDR
The study shows that apart from mechanical removal of debris, cleaning of gums and teeth, most of the chewing sticks have some antibacterial activities against some bacteria’s that are not residents of the oral cavity, hence ratifying their use in ethno medical treatment of oral infections.
