In vitro susceptibility of viridans streptococci to leaf extracts of Mangifera Indica.
TL;DR: Methanol extract was found to have better action against Viridans streptococci than water extract and minimum inhibitory concentration of methanol extract for all isolates were <50 mg/mL.
Abstract: The susceptibility of Viridans streptococci to leaf extracts of Mangifera indica was studied on 53 clinical isolates from 39 patients. All the isolates were found to be susceptible to both water and methanol extract of M. indica leaves. Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of methanol extract for all isolates were <50 mg/mL and MIC of water extract for all isolates were <200 mg/mL. Methanol extract was found to have better action against Viridans streptococci than water extract.

...It has been experimentally shown that plants and their products exhibit marked inhibitory activity against cariogenic flora (Fani and Kohanteb, 2007; Jose and Beegum, 2007; Ferrazzano et al., 2009; Almeida et al., 2012; Vivek et al., 2013)....
