Despite the progress of the world, the dental caries disease is still widespread at a high rate in the world. Miswakwhich is derived fromArak plant ( Salvadorapersica ) is used by Muslim people as a natural source for cleansing teeth to ensure oral and dental hygiene. This study was designed to evaluate the antimicrobial activity effects of ethanol, methanol, and ethanol/ methanol extracts of miswakagainst three oral bacterial pathogens. The pathogens were isolated from the oral cavity persons and were identified on the bases of 16S rRNA gene amplification and sequence comparison with the 16S rRNA gene sequences available in GenBank database. Results of sequence Alignment and phylogenetic analysis identified the three isolates as Staphylococcus aureus strain KKU-020, Enterococcus faecalis strain KKU-021 and Klebsiellapneumoniae strain KKU-022. All miswak extracts showed extremely high effects against the three pathogens. Maximum zone of inhibition (40.67?0.88mm) was observed against E. faecalis with ethanolic extract. Based on the significant effects of the miswak extracts against the oral cavity pathogens, the study therefore, recommended miswak to be used as a dental hygiene method to prevent tooth caries.
