Materials and Methods: This is a laboratory experimental in vitro study using selected oral pathogens cultured in nutrient agar. The pathogens then were inoculated in nutrient based broth and incubation for 24hours. Flaxseed extract efficacy was tested by measurement of the zone of inhibition. The antibacterial activities were compared with streptomycin as positive control and DMSO as negative control. The statistical analysis was done by using SPSS. Results: There is positive antibacterial effects of flaxseed extract against Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus Pyogenes, Pseudomona Aerigenosa and was comparable in efficacy to that of Streptomycin. Conclusion: This study concludes that flaxseed extract has antibacterial activity ageist selective oral pathogens.
