Antimicrobial effects of Tanacetum balsamita L essential oil Streptococcus mutants, Streptococcus sanguis and Streptococcus salivarius and its comparison with common mouthwashes
Background and aim: Tooth decay is one of the most common diseases in the world. The use of herbal substances to prevent and treat this disease has been considered for various reasons, such as increasing the resistance of bacteria to antibiotics, high cost, and adverse effects of some chemicals used in dentistry. This study aimed to investigate the effect of Tanacetum balsamita L essential oil on Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus salivarius, and Streptococcus sanguinis. Material and Method: In this study, the aerial part of the Tanacetum balsamita L plant was extracted by distillation with essential oil, the antimicrobial effect of essential oil in concentrations (12.5, 25, 50, and 100 µg / ml) was investigated. The diffusion disc method was used to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of essential oil. Results: According to the results, the essential oil in concentration of 100 µg/m had inhibitory effect on growth of streptococcus mutans, salivaris,and sanguis. This effect was better than Irsha mouth wash and somehow less than Chlorhexidine and Oral B mouth washes. This differ was not significant so the essential oil with concentration of 100 µg/ml had similar effect as Oral B and Chlorhexidine mouth washes. The positive effect was seen in the concentrations of 25 and 50 µg/ml but it was not considerable comparing to control groups. There was no effect in 12.5 µg/ml concentration. Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, it is suggested to prepare mouth washes containing the concentration of 100 µg/ml of the essential oil Tanacetum balsamita L. to evaluate the antimicrobial effects in more in othe in vitro and in vivo studies.
In Vitro Effect of Hydroalcoholic Extract of Aloe Vera and 0.2% Chlorhexidine Mouthwash on Streptococcus Sanguinis, Streptococcus Salivarius and Streptococcus Mutans
Objectives: This study aimed to assess the antimicrobial effects of aloe vera hydroalcoholic extract and 0.2% chlorhexidine (CHX) mouthwash on Streptococcus sanguinis (S. sanguinis), Streptococcus salivarius (S. salivarius) and Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans) in vitro. Materials and Methods: Four concentrations (25%, 50%, 75% and 100%) of hydroalcoholic extract of aloe vera were prepared. S. ...متن کامل
A UV-sensitive derivative was obtained from Streptococcus sanguis Challis. The organism could be transformed with a number of small streptococcal plasmids at frequencies equal to, or 1 logarithm below, the transformation frequencies for the parent organism. However, transformation with chromosomal DNA was greatly impaired in the UV-sensitive derivative.متن کامل
Comparison of Antibacterial Effect of Nanosilver and Chlorhexidine Mouthwash on Streptococcus Sanguis (in vitro)
Abstract Background and Aim: Streptococcus sanguis is known one of the initiating agents of microbial plaque formation. In addition to the physical control of the microbial plaque, the use of mouthwashes as a chemical method to kill microorganisms is effective. Although chlorhexidine is the gold standard for the elimination of oral microorganisms, the unpleasant side effects of its long-term...متن کامل
Assessment of Streptococcus Salivarius ssp Thermophilus Antioxidant Efficiency and its Role in Reducing Paracetamol Hepatotoxicity
Background: Probiotics have attracted a great attention aiming to develop natural non-toxic antioxidants, because of their role in decreasing the risk of reactive oxygen species (ROS) accumulation. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to assess the antioxidant activity of a probiotic Streptococcus salivarius ssp thermophillus (St.sa) and to evaluate its protective effect against the ...متن کامل
Streptococci identified as Streptococcus bovis, S. bovis variant, and Streptococcus salivarius were examined with respect to physiological and serological characteristics and cellular fatty acid content. Similarities in physiological reactions and problems encountered in serological analysis were noted, suggesting that an expanded battery of physiological tests is needed to definitively identif...متن کامل
Streptococcus sanguis (the Streptococcus s.b.e. of Loewe), originally identified by White and his coworkers, has, with few exceptions, been isolated only from the blood stream of patients with subacute bacterial endocarditis (White, 1944; White and Niven, 1946; Niven and White, 1946; Loewe et al., 1946; Niven et al., 1946; Washburn et al., 1946). This causative organism has a type specificity a...متن کامل
