Over the years, dental researchers and medical publications have studied the natural antibacterial properties found in the miswak, which is extracted from the roots and branches of a very particular tree called the Salvadora Persica, or Arak tree. Several of these studies reveal that when used correctly, the miswak can have a positive impact on your oral hygiene through:
• Plaque reduction
• Teeth whitening
• Fighting bad odor
• Killing bacteria
• Increasing salivation
• Helping with nicotine addiction
HOW TO USE THE MISWAK:
PEEL: Peel about 1 cm of the outer layer of the miswak to reveal the inner bristles.
SEPARATE : Chew on the tip of the miswak to soften the bristles. You can also use your thumb to separate them.
BRUSH: Holding the miswak perpendicular to your mouth, brush your teeth in a circular motion. Allow the bristles between the gaps of the teeth for a good floss.
CUT: When the tip of your miswak gets dry, use a knife to cut the tip off. Repeat the first step when you’re ready to use it again. We recommend cutting the tip off once a day.
