Abstract

Background :The study aimed to evalute the antibacterial efficacy of coriander seed oil mouthwash and Kidodentmouthwash against Streptococcus mutans.


Methods:After approval from institutional review board and institutional informed consent, 45 children who met the inclusion criteria were divided into three groups .The trial design  included 15 healthy children in each group namely Group I(Kidodent), Group II(Coriander) & Group III(Distilled water) aged between 6-8 years for 15 days.  Streptococcus mutans was isolated from saliva sample using selective media Salivariusmitis agar and Type I Agar agar at 38? for 24 hours. Serial dilution method was followed for screening the activity of C. sativumextract and Kidodent mouthwash in reducing the S. mutanscount and calculated using manual colony counter.  Statistical analysis was performed with one-way ANOVA and t-test using Graph Pad Prism V.5 software.


Results: Coriander seed oil  mouthwash showed equivalent and significant reduction in  CFU/ml   when compared to Kidodent mouthwash (p<0.05)


Conclusion: The results of the study indicate that coriander seed oil mouthwash may prove to be an effective mouthwash owing to its ability in reducing S. mutans.
