The aim of this study was to determine the antibacterial effect of aquatic and methanolic extract ofon some of the oral Gram-negative bacteria.

Materials and Methods: The antibacterial effect of aquatic and methanolic extracts ofwas determined using disk diffusion method at different concentrations from 10 to 500 mg/ml. The diameter of inhibition zones were determined. The MIC was defined using the standard broth macrodilution method. The results of the study were reported descriptively.

Results: The aquatic extract offrom 20 to 500 mg/ml had antibacterial effect onandThe methanolic extract from 10 to 500 mg/ml had antibacterial effect onand. The MIC was achieved at 10 mg/ml, 10 mg/ml and 10 mg/ml for aquatic and methanolic extracts ofonand, respectively.

Conclusion: Aquatic and methanolic extracts ofhad antibacterial effect onand. Most concentrations of aqueous extract were effective on bacteria, so, providing an alcoholic extract, that is a time consuming and costly method, does not seem necessary.
