Abstract
The aim of this research was to investigate the comparative effectiveness of ang-sana latex (P. indiscus) and chlorhexidine 0.2% against growth of S. mutans. This research was a laboratory experiment (true experimental), with a post-test only completely randomized design, consisting of four treatments: angsana latex 40% (w/v), angsana latex 80% (w/v) positive control (chlorhexidine 0.2%), and nega-tive control (distilled water). Each treatment was replicated six times. The bacteri-cidal effect of the inhibition zone that formed on Muller??"Hinton media was rated. Result: One-way analysis of variance showed that the inhibition zones were sig-nificantly different; the angsana latex 80% (w/v) had a larger mean inhibiting zone than that of chlorhexidine 0.2% against S. mutans. These results indicate that angsana latex 80% (w/v) had a greater bactericidal effect than that of chlor-hexidine 0.2% against S. mutans.
