The use of plants or herbs for dental care is a very common indigenous system of medicine and it must be included in everyday life. The active principles of plants should be incorporated into modern oral health-care practices and dentists should be encouraged to use natural remedies in various oral health treatments. This will make dentistry much safer, affordable and more accessible for the lower socio-economic groups in society In future, studies on efficacy of ayurvedic herbs should be carried out in developing countries like India to establish their therapeutic benefits either alone or in combination with conventional therapies. This book will update the clinician on advance uses of herbs in dental practice to treat various oral diseases. We provide an update on the current and future applications of herbs in dental practice.
