Dental carries are the major health problem may cause severe pain in mouth. Azolla pinnata is the one of the important green food and economically valued material. Antimicrobial efficiency of Azolla pinnata was examined using Ethanol, chloroform and water, as solvents and tested against human dental pathogens using agar well diffusion method. Dental organisms were isolated from dental sample and based on their biochemical characters identified as Streptococcus mutans 1, Streptococcus mutans 2 Streptococcus mutans 3 and Streptococcus mutans 4. The phytochemicals present in the plant extracts were analyzed biochemically and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopically.
