Silver nanoparticles have become a substance of great interest among researches in the present time due to its low cost and its wide range of applications in various fields. Moreover, recently, green nanotechnology has been gaining popularity because of its exclusion of damaging reagents and cost-effectiveness. In this study, ginger oleoresin mediated silver nanoparticles were prepared and confirmed with UV-Vis spectroscopy. The ginger oleoresin mediated silver nanoparticles were then tested for its antibacterial activity using agar well diffusion method against Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus mutans, and Enterococcus faecalis. The antimicrobial sensitivity was found to be highest against Streotococcus mutans among the test organisms. Silver nanoparticle synthesised using natural substances can be used in control of oral pathogens.
