Abstract: An oral care medicinal plants survey was conducted in different districts of Tamil Nadu during the period of 2000-2004. A total of 114 plants species, distributed among 97 genera belonging to 51 families were recorded. Most of the plants are used to relieve toothache (29.82%), as toothbrush (25.43%), mouthwash/gargle (16.66%), against common dental diseases (14.03%), mouth related stomatitis/ulcer/gingivitis (12.28%) and gum bleeding/disorders (10.53%). In the present paper these plants are arranged in alphabetical order with their scientific name, family, local name, part used and existing/surveyed uses.
