Abstract: Aim: The aim of this study was to perform in vitro assessment of Babool extract, Mint and Clove containing toothpaste against oral disease-causing pathogens Porphyromonas gingivalis (P. gingivalis). Objective: The present study was designed to evaluate in efficacy of the Dabur Babool toothpaste containing certain medicinal plant extracts like Babool extract and clove oil for the protection of oral hygiene and prevention of gum diseases by inhibition of disease-causing micro-organism P. gingivalis.
