Abstract

Background: Rose is a perennial plant of the genus Rosa, within the family Rosaceae. Various studies have been conducted to establish the anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant activities of rose. This in-vitro study was planned to determine the antibacterial and antifungal potential of rose against periodontal pathogens. Materials and methods: Rose petals were collected, dried and subjected to extraction with ethanol. The minimum inhibitory concentration of the extract was then determined against oral and periodontal bacteria and fungi. Results and conclusion: The rose extract was found to exhibit an appreciable antifungal activity and antibacterial activity against gram positive anaerobes than periodontal pathogens which are gram negative anaerobes.
