Today, the use of medicinal plants and their ingredients in the preparation of many drugs for the prevention and treatment of dental and oral disorders and diseases has been considered. This study aimed to investigate the effect of medicinal plants on caries and tooth infections. For this review study, keywords such as gingivitis, antiparasitic, antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and dental plaque were used. The search engines and databases searched for in those articles were Google Scholar, Scopus, PubMed, and Web of Science. Many herbs or their derivatives are used in commercial toothpaste to relieve oral side effects. The essential oils and various extracts of these herbs have shown antifungal, antiparasitic, antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory properties. Identifying and using these plants and their derivates can help pharmacologists and researchers to discover new effective drugs for treating dental diseases.
