Abstract

  • Aim of the present study was to screen the active herbal extracts against Enterococcus sps, and Candida isolates in root canal infection
  • Materials and methods: In this study, crude extract of selected plants were prepared separately from the solvents like Ethyl acetate, Methanol, Ether, Acetone and Hexane. All the extracts of each plant were subjected into antimicrobial assay by disc diffusion method with 6mm disc carries 500 µg/ml concentration of extract. After incubation their efficacy has been observed and measured by mm.
  • Results: Out of eight plants used, the Ethyl acetate extract of Mania Kanji (Garcina imberti bourd) exhibited maximum inhibitory effect on above culture yielded root canal isolates, whereas, Elephantobus scaber was found to be less active against such isolates.
  • Conclusion: In this study, it is the first report that the Garcina imberti bourd indeed exhibit a potent activity on both Enterococus and Candida isolates of root canal infection.
