The most common cause of gum disease is lack of observance of oral hygiene and the accumulation of bacterial plaque, followed by dental mass, food intake and dental restorations. Bacterial agents which cause dental plaque formation and ultimately cause tooth decay. Streptococcus mitis is the greatest bacterial agent isolated from dental plaque. Medicinal plants are rich in substances whose pharmacological properties are applied through potent antioxidant and bioactive substances. We tried to report medicinal plants with anti-Streptococcus mitis properties in this reviewing study. Searching in this reviewing study was done with words such as Streptococcus mitis, dental diseases, medical plants and phytotherapy. Searching was done from databases such as Scopus, ISC, SID, Magiran and several other databases. Accordingly, 9 medical plants effective on Streptococcus mitis are used. According to obtained results, it was determined that Cinnamomum cassia, Spilanthes calva, Azardirachta indica, Acacia nilotica, Ocimum basilicum, Emblica officinalis, Terminalia bellirica, Syzygium cuminii and Syzygium aromaticum medicinal plants are the most important medicinal plants with anti-Streptococcus mytises effects. Medicinal plants of this study have anti-Streptococcus mitis effects due to bioactive substances, antioxidants, flavonoids, flavones, anthocyanins, etc. © 2017, Pharmainfo Publications.
