Abstract: Human mouth is inhabited by a variety of microorganisms, there are over seven hundred species of bacteria that are found to inhabit the human mouth. Although most of them are harmless and live in a symbiotic relationship and protect our gums and teeth, some are harmful and cause dental caries. These are found on the surface of teeth, tongue and the gaps between the teeth. Biochemical activities of these bacteria cause the destruction of hard dental tissues and enamel. The purpose of this study is to isolate the bacteria from the mouth of people of different age groups and observe the effectiveness and  resistance of  various  toothpastes on these bacterial

isolates. Through the study the most common bacteria isolated from the mouth are Staphylococcus species. The microbial sensitivity test towards different toothpastes, which are chemical and herbal based, was done using the agar-well diffusion method. This study concludes based on the findings that the isolated Staphylococcus species were more resistant to herbal toothpastes in comparison to chemical base toothpastes.
