Calendula has been shown in an open, clinical study to be beneficial in the treatment of chronic catarrhal gingivitis (Krazhan & Garazha 2001). Interestingly, calendula extract failed to show any significant activity against common oral microorganisms in a second study that tested it against the saliva and dental plaque from 20 infants in vitro (Modesto et al 2000); however, a homeopathic preparation of calendula has been found to inhibit Streptococcus mutans (Giorgi et al 2004).
