Abstract

Problem statement: Oral hygiene has become the most important in current era. Due to growing need for aesthetic and hygeine oral hygiene has gained impetus. In this research paper we have studied new varieties of natural products which help in improving the oral hygiene. Approach: Two varieties of Juglans regia bark were extracted using hot and cold extraction methods and there in vitro antimicrobial activities were tested against four microorganisms related to dental caries (Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus sobrinus, Actinomyces viscosus) which are known to be implicated in dental caries. Results: Both the varieties of Juglans regia showed good anti plaque activity. Kashmir variety of Juglans regia showed maximum Antiplaque activity. Conclusion: Natural products like Juglans regia can be used for improving oral hygiene and can be included in the products of oral hygein.
