Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the oral infection causing bacteria and check affect of plant extract on bacteria by antimicrobial activity. Worldwide 60-90 % children and nearly 100 % adults suffering by dental cavities, severe periodental disease is found in 15-20 % of middle aged adults, about 30 % people aged 65-74 suffering from tooth loss. A total of 28 samples were collected out of that 50 bacterial isolates were isolated and from that 38 isolateswere identified as biofilm producing bacteria by tube assay & microtiter plate assay. The bacteria found wereStaphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus viridans, Streptococcus mutans, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Lactobacilli spp. , Veillonella spp. causes skin and soft tissue infection, periodontal abscess and gum infection, soft tissue infection, gum and tooth infection, chronic periodentitis respectively. The bacterial isolates were identified and with the help of methanol plant extract antimicrobial activity were checked. To check affect on oral infection causing bacteria by antimicrobial activity. In conclusion, Plant extract might be suitable treatment of oral infection causing bacteria.
