Abstract :

Plaque control is utmost essential for the suppression of gingivitis, dental caries, and halitosis-causing microorganisms. The most commonly used tool in the treatment of supragingival plaque are the tooth brushing either mechanical or electrical, dental floss, or interdental brushing. Other means of plaque control are chemical therapeutic agents such as mouthwashes, sprays, chewing gums and varnishes; aid in an effective home care. Nevertheless, mouthwashes have been accepted as the simplest and easiest mode of oral hygiene aid.This could be the main mode of oral cleansing in medically compromised patients and elderly where adequate oral hygiene maintenance could be a major concern. Chlorhexidine (CHX) has been the most widely used mouthwash and is considered as the gold standard in dental practice for about three decades, but not without certain disadvantages such as taste perturbation, tooth discoloration, oral ulcerations, unilateral, or bilateral parotid swelling. Considering these drawback of CHX mouthwash, alternative antiplaque agents have been developed in the recent years with the use of herbal products. Herbs have been the main source of medications since the ancient times of Charaka and Sushruta and have conquered the confidence of the people of Asia. Naturally available herbs such as tulsi, triphala, neem, honey, ajwain, turmeric, Zingiber Officinalis, etc., have been commonly used either alone or in combination as safe and effective antibacterial agents
