Phytotherapy is used as an additional therapeutic method of treatment for gingivitis and periodontal disease. Besides its therapeutic effects, it has a role in improving general immunity. Herbs and their extracts have antimicrobial, antioxidative and antiinflammatory effects. Aim of this review article is to give a basic overview of usage of herbal species in treatment of periodontal disease. Besides causal treatment for periodontal disease, which represents “gold standard'' of periodontal therapy, the proper combination of herbal species and their extracts can improve the usual therapeutic procedure in patients with gingivitis and periodontal disease.
