What is Miswak?
Miswak is a tooth cleaning chewing stick from the tree of Salvadora persica. The stick, which is available everywhere, has antibacterial properties and can be used instead of toothbrush and toothpaste. It prevents dental plaque formations and associated with multiple medicinal benefits and uses. The prophet Muhammad (SAW) had often advocated the use of miswak. The World Health Organization (WHO) has also suggested the use of miswak in a report on oral hygiene published in 1986 and 2000.
