Abstract:

The nightshades, or Solanaceae family, are a kind of flowering plant that is classified as a dicot. Members of this family often seek dental care for cleanings and toothaches, according to scholarly research. In India, a number of tribal and rural cultures employ documented dental care techniques [1]. In order to investigate the traditional knowledge of the local people in the Kolli hills in the Namakkal district of Tamil Nadu, an ethno-medical study was carried out between 2010 and 2011. The findings show that the locals have historically employed eighteen different types of medicinal plants to treat and prevent a wide range of tooth conditions [2]. It is made up of many glycoproteins, polysaccharides, glycoalkaloids, and mixes of polyphenolic compounds, including rutin, epicatechin, gallic acid, and protocatechuic acid. There are several benefits of Solanum nigrum, including hepatoprotective, anticancer, immunomodulatory, anti-ulcer, relaxing, anti-convulsant, cardio defensive, antibacterial, antidiabetic, and pain relief effects. Solanum nigrum has been used in traditional medicine in India and other areas of the world to cure a variety of conditions, including liver problems, persistent skin infections, heat-related illnesses, menstrual cramps, fevers, diarrhea, eye infections, and dizziness [3].
