Pooja Jha | Dr. Kunal Kishor | Dr. Rachna 
Abstract: Herbal medicines are made up of plant constituents that are said to have therapeutic properties, preferred over traditional drugs due to their extensive natural activity, advanced safety margin, and lower costs. Furthermore, modern drugs are known to cause a variety of side effects. Because the continuous use of modern drugs has sometimes resulted in antibiotic resistance, herbal medicines are gradually being used as dietary supplements to combat or prevent common ailments affecting the human body and oral cavity.They are increasingly being used as dietary supplements to prevent common diseases. Periodontal diseases are extremely common, affecting up to 90% of the world's population. Gingivitis is the mildest form, whereas periodontitis causes irreversible loss of tooth supporting structures. Despite the fact that periodontal pathogens play an important role in the etiopathogenesis of periodontitis, there is a growing body of evidence suggesting that oxidative stress plays a critical role in disease initiation and progression. Infectious diseases are primarily caused by microorganisms, which account for a large number of hospitalizations and deaths each year. There are numerous antimicrobial formulations available to treat these infections, but bacterial pathogens are rapidly developing resistance to these antibiotics, making these infections difficult to treat. As a result, researchers all over the world are now focusing on the discovery of new antimicrobial substances. Plants and their compounds could be one of the promising candidates against drug resistance in the current scenario.A large number of Indian plants are recommended in the treatment of infectious diseases in Ayurveda and Unani medicine. According to WHO, approximately 80% of the world's population uses medicinal plants to treat human diseases.
