In India, pomegranate phytotherapy has the potential to provide cost-effective and an indigenous solution in preventive dentistry.

Method

The activity of the pomegranate seed oil at different concentrations was screened by disc diffusion technique and the zone of inhibition was measured in mm diameter.

Result

The results obtained from our study shows that the pomegranate seed oil have got very good resistance against oral microbes.
