Antibacterial effects of guava and ginger plants against dental pathogens:In vitro and in-vivo.

See More

Sensitivity tests of the guava leaves decoction showed a 50.0% reduction in the bacterial colony counts isolated from patients who underwent root canal therapy. For the ginger extract, all the cases positive for bacterial growth showed significant reduction in bacterial colony counts. Such reduction was slightly higher than that seen in guava leaves decoction.

Longer exposure of the root canal for either of the two extracts (48 hrs.) showed no significant growth in both aerobic and anaerobic cultures. (Author)
