The oral cavity has one of the most complex microbial properties in the body. Streptococci are the most important organisms in the mouth. Today, due to the resistance of the bacteria and the ability of bacteria to cause acute infections, the use of medicinal herbs and effective natural products has become widespread. Therefore, in this study, we tried to report medicinal herbs that have anti-Streptococcus viridans properties. In the current review, the articles were searched with keywords of Streptococcus viridians, dental diseases, herbs and phytotherapy. Searching was carried out for databases including Scopus, ISCs, SIDs, Magnets, and a number of other databases. Based on the results of the review, it was revealed that the herbs including Schinus terebinthifolius, Rosmarinus officinalis, Hyptis pectinata, Wilbrandia sp, Amaryllis belladonna, Lafoensia pacari, Hematanthus phagedaenicus, Achyrocline satureioides, Dorstenia sp, Boerhaavia coccinea and Copaifera sp are the most important medicinal plants with anti-Streptococcus viridans effect. The medicinal plants have the anti-Streptococcus viridans effects due to the bioactive substances, antioxidants, flavonoids, flavones, anthocyanins, etc. © 2017, Pharmainfo Publications.
