The galls of the Quercus infectoria (QI) tree are conventionally believed to have enormous therapeutic value. Pharmacologically, the galls are claimed to have various biological activities such as astringent effect, antitremorine, local anesthetic, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and many more. These pharmacological activities of QI extracts are used in the treatment of oral diseases as constituent of toothpaste and powder. Further research is required to appraise the efficacy, safety, and properties of Majuphal in oral care products.
