Abstract

Natural products are used anciently in traditional medicine, also called herbal medicines, which have been used for their multiple healing properties and, given the need to obtain new products that help or support the treatment of multiple diseases, are currently an alternative. The World Health Organization defines an herbal medicine as a preparation, herbal product that contains the active substance in a part of the plant. At present in the Amazon region of South America, an oleoresin extracted from a tree called copaiba is being obtained, with antimicrobial properties that has a projection in its use in periodontal pathologies such as periodontitis, pathology whose major etiological factor is the presence of a microbial biofilm in the periodontal groove, which gradually degrades the supporting tissues of the tooth, and can lead to the loss of the tooth.
