Abstract

Natural product-based drugs have become trendsetters in the field of medicine as alternative or complementary remedy due to the admirable and predominant advantages they possess in comparison to the synthetic counterparts. Although many reports have been published regarding the biological activities of the natural products, very few reach the stages of clinical trials and get approved. There are various dental formulations available in the market currently, which are used according to the patient’s requirement and disease severity for overcoming oral health deformities. The data presented here lists some medicinal plants used in dentistry that have been approved by various clinical trial registries around the world and their specifications and applications.
