Objective: This study aims to determine the effect of mangrove leaves extract (avicennia marina) concentration to streptococcus mutans and candida albicans growth which is commonly found in removable denture plate.Material and Methods: Production of mangrove leaves extract (avicennia marina) used 96% ethanol solution. Mangrove leaves extract was prepared at a concentration of 2.5%, 5%, 7.5%, 10% and controlled with denture cleanser materials available in the market. Furthermore, the bacteria activity of streptococcus mutans and candida albicans (ATCC 10231) were tested, then the data were analyzed by One Way ANOVA and Post Hoc Test (Tukey HSD).Results: Statistical analysis of mangrove leaves extract with 2.5% concentration (6.850 ± 0.127), 5% (7.185 ± 0.007), 7.5% (8.360 ± 0.283), 10% (8.485 ± 0.219) and positive control (9.060 ±0.226), showed significant inhibition zone differences (p<0.05). The concentration of 7.5% had optimal inhibition growth of streptococcus mutans (p<0.05). Mangrove leaves extract to 10% concentration had not shown the effects of inhibition zone against candida albicans.Conclusion: Mangrove leaves extract (avicennia marina) is effective to inhibit the growth of streptococcus mutans but hasn’t shown inhibition zone against candida albicans until 10% concentration
