Introduction: Continued use of chemical agents for reducing the level sof dental decay has adverse effects. In this regard, in numerous recent studies, conventional chemicals have been replaced with plant-derived agents. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of Vitis vinifera seed extracts on Streptococcus mutans and sobrinus bacteria.
Materials and methods: In this descriptive experimental study, the Vitis vinifera seeds were dried and the obtaining powder was then poured into separate dishes to prepare aqueous, alcoholic and acetone extracts and finally, the desired solvents were prepared. After being placed in the shaker incubator and passed through the filter paper, the solvents were transferred to the plates and put in the oven to evaporate.
Results: The minimum inhibitory concentration of the aqueous extract was 8 μg/mL for Streptococcus mutans and 2 μg/mL for Streptococcus sobrinus bacteria. Alcoholic and acetone extracts could not inhibit bacterial growth at initial concentrations; therefore, their higher levels were used, but none of them was effective.
Conclusion: The aqueous extract of Vitis vinifera seeds was the only extract that could inhibit bacterial growth. The alcoholic and acetone extracts had no antibacterial effect.
