Abstract: The paper deals with 31 plant species belonging to 29 genera and 20 families comprising 40 ethnomedicinal uses for dental care (tooth ache, tooth decay, pyorrhea, foul smell and as tooth brush) by the different tribal and rural people in Sundargarh, Mayurbhanj, Angul and Balangir districts of Odisha. These uses were compared and cross-checked with the published ethnomedicinal data from Odisha and other states of the country and found that 12 uses of the referred plants had not been reported earlier. These plant species are arranged alphabetically with their botanical names, family and local name(s), followed by the method of uses for dental care along with field collection number(s) and uses cited by earlier workers.
