Screening of Antimicrobial Properties of Jasminum sambac Linn. Leaf Extracts against Dental Pathogens

Sanjay Kumar, Navneet and Shiv Shanker Gautam

Abstract:
In present study, antimicrobial efficacy of Jasminum sambac leaf extracts was evaluated against six bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus mutans, S. pyogenes, S. sobrinus, S. sanguinis and Lactobacillus acidophilus) and one fungi (Candida albicans) causing dental infections. Results showed that methanol extract was more efficient in comparison to other extracts. The zone of inhibition ranged between 12.3±0.57-17.3±0.57 mm examined at 200 mg mL–1, respectively. Minimum inhibitory concentration were recorded for methanol extract at 3.12-25 mg mL–1. Phytochemical analysis of extracts showed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, steroids, tannins, terpenoids and saponins. The results conclude the traditional uses of J. sambac in treatment of dental diseases.
