The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of commercially available and 70% aqueous propanone (P70) extracts from plants chosen for polyphenol content on Streptococcus mutans and other bacteria were determined using a standard susceptibility agar dilution technique to investigate their potential use as anticariogenic agents. The effects on adhesion of S. mutans to glass were also studied. The lowest MICs were for the P70 extracts of red grape skin (0.5 mg ml–1) and green tea and sloe berry… Expand
The antibacterial activity of ethanolic extract of some Plant containing polyphenols component against Streptococcus mutans isolated from teeth caries
Caries is still considered one of the main problems of public health and many researchers in the world have been searching for alternatives to prevent the occurrence of this process. StreptococcusExpand
In vitro antimicrobial activity of Ocimum americanum L. essential oil against oral microorganisms.
TLDR
The results indicate that essential oil has antimicrobial activity against all tested microorganisms and indicates the possibility of using the essential oil of O. americanum L. Americanum in oral health care products for reducing these pathogenic microorganisms in the oral cavity. Expand
Growth Media Affect Assessment of Antimicrobial Activity of Plant-Derived Polyphenols
TLDR
Nonproteinaceous CDM should be used to avoid interference of proteins with the active ingredients when testing the antimicrobial activity of plant-derived polyphenolic compounds against microorganisms, to minimize the discrepancies noted in results obtained by different investigators. Expand
Inhibitory activity of a green and black tea blend on Streptococcus mutans
TLDR
A novel, patent-pending and proprietary blend of green and black tea aqueous extracts on Streptococcus mutans, a bacterium widely associated with plaque development and tooth decay, is found to be effective against the growth of S. mutans. Expand

Antibacterial Activity of Polyphenol Components in Oolong Tea Extract against Streptococcus mutans
TLDR
The extract showed antibacterial activity against all of the oral streptococci examined, with the highest activity against S. mutans MT8148R, which was found to originate from a monomeric polyphenol-rich fraction, and it was stronger than that of pure polyphenols. Expand
Antimicrobial Activity of Tea Extracts on Cariogenic Bacterium (Streptococcus mutans)
Antimicrobial activities of tea extracts on the cariogenic bacterium, Streptococcus mutans, were studied. Extracts of green and black tea leaves effectively suppressed the growth of S. mutans asExpand
The effect of herbal extracts in an experimental mouthrinse on established plaque and gingivitis.
TLDR
The results of the present study have shown that the mixture of the 3 herbal extracts, Juniperus communis, Urtica dioca and Achillaea millefolium when used in a mouthrinse has no effect on plaque growth and gingival health. Expand
Cariostatic activity of cacao mass extract.
TLDR
The results indicate that cacao mass extract possesses some anticariogenic potential, but its anticaries activity is not strong enough to suppress significantly the cariogenic activity of sucrose. Expand
Caries inhibitory activity of cacao bean husk extract in in-vitro and animal experiments.
TLDR
Results indicate that CBH possesses powerful anticariogenic potential and the administration of CBH in drinking water resulted in significant reductions of caries development and dental plaque accumulation in rats infected with either St. sobrinus 6715 or Strep. Expand
Antibacterial Substances in Japanese Green Tea Extract against Streptococcus mutans, a Cariogenic Bacterium
An extract of Japanese green tea, one of the most popular drinks in Japan, was an inhibitor of the growth of Streptococcus mutans, a bacterium responsible for causing dental caries. The analysis ofExpand
Inhibitory Effects of Oolong Tea Extract on Caries–Inducing Properties of Mutans Streptococci
TLDR
The results suggest that OTF6 may inhibit bacterial adherence to the tooth surfaces by reducing the hydrophobicity of mutans streptococci, and OTE may inhibit caries–inducing activity of mutan strePTococci by reduced the rate of acid production. Expand
Molecular analysis of the inhibitory effects of oolong tea polyphenols on glucan-binding domain of recombinant glucosyltransferases from Streptococcus mutans MT8148.
TLDR
Results indicate that OTF6, a polymeric polyphenol specific for oolong tea is able to reduce glucan synthesis by inhibiting the GBD of S. mutans GTFB and GTFD. Expand
