Physiology of a child is much different from an adult and a child should not be considered a small-sized adult. They have different developmental pharmacokinetics due to which they are more sensitive to drug effects. This has led to the adoption of new dental materials derived from natural origin instead of conventional chemicals to reduce the side effects and complications. Propolis is one such natural substance that is widely used for various clinical trials in dentistry and has shown very promising results. Due to its anti-inflammatory, anticariogenic, and immunomodulating effects, it has now become quite familiar material in dental applications. It is eco-friendly, economical, complications free, easily available, and easy to use in daily dental practices. Hence, it has opened a new field of research and analysis for scientists and researchers.
