The use of herbal gum paint in the treatment of dental problems is not very common. Most of the drugs used are synthetic and are in used over the years mainly for antibacterial activity in the oral cavity. It includes various side effects that are always a limit for their use. Natural remedies are always more desirable and acceptable and are more effective with fewer side effects. ThemicroorganismincludesEscherichiacoli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Staphylococcusepidermidis, and staphylococcus aureus which causegingivitisanddent cavities. The current study objective is to formulate and evaluate an herbal gum paint that is useful in the long term and has rheological characteristics and stability too. The local anesthetic activity is studied and the antimicrobial activity of gum paint is examined by disc diffusion method and compared activity between F1-betel leaf oil, F2- clove oil, and an F3 (F1+F2) – both betel leaf and clove oil. F3 shows a synergistic effect on microbes than the other two and has the maximum zone of inhibition.
