    Author(s): Shreyam Barthwal, Subhasree R*, Thiyaneswaran N and S Rajeshkumar

    The growing demand for dental implants has propelled the development of the implant industry thereby leading to more advanced research in this area. The plant extract mediated nanoparticles in dental materials has many advantages over conventional materials that are synthesized by physico-chemical methods. Emergence of natural products and their derivatives has caused a paradigm shift in the synthesis of dental materials and are highly preferred over conventional drugs with the notion of reducing adverse effects. Zinc oxide nanoparticles are biocompatible, safe, and nontoxic metal oxide that possesses promising antimicrobial potential against a broad range of bacteria and fungi. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to evaluate the antimicrobial potential of ZnO nanoparticles prepared from the leaf extracts of Phyllanthus Niruri and Stevia that can be incorporated into dental im..
