Dry kayu sugi or miswak for brushing your teeth and strengthen your gums.
I prefer to use dried ones compare to those miswak wrapped in plastic bag because dried ones doesn’t have smell.
The kind of toothbrush we all have in our bathrooms was invented in 1938. Previously, from about 1498, boar bristles attached to bamboo or bone handles were used.
But what came before that? Answer: The miswak.
I have only been aware of the miswak for a year or so, and i have been using this more than one year, no more dentist and gums problem, teeth become whiter and stronger.
This natural stick, which is actually a length of root from the Peelu tree, is a natural and more effective toothbrush than your typical plastic and nylon kind.
Beyond the miswak not being synthetic, which is enough reason for me to try it, it actually kills bacteria and fights plaque. On it’s own. With no toothpaste. This of course leads to fewer cavities and fresher breath.
Try one and you’ll love it.
Toothbrush users believe that using the toothbrush-plus-miswak is most effective in reducing mouth debris

Scientific Studies on Miswak
Miswak were 20 times more effective in killing bacteria than ordinary mints. A small testimony to this fact is that, after half an hour, Miswak killed about 60% of the bacteria where as the ordinary mints managed only 3.6%.
The study concluded that Miswak was more effective than toothbrushing in reducing plaque and gingivitis provided it was used correctly. Similar studies found on the same website and elsewhere vouch for the effectiveness of Miswak over toothbrush. “The miswak appeared to be more effective than toothbrushing for removing plaque from the embrasures, thus enhancing interproximal health,” stated the researchers.
There have been plenty of published studies on the Miswak and, in fact, entire books published which study its oral and systemic benefits.
With its strong antibacterial properties and perpendicular bristles, the Miswak is a natural toothbrush, toothpaste and floss combined.
