Using a Miswaak regularly
Branches from the Miswak, or Peelu, tree have been used in the Saharan desert for thousands of years to clean and brush the teeth. What makes these so special for brushing the teeth is that they contain a natural source of fluoride, which is vital for the prevention of tooth decay.
The Miswak is obtained from the twigs of the Arak tree (Peelu tree) although a few other trees can also be used like walnut and olive.
The miswak is a teeth cleaning twig made from a twig of selected trees including Salvadora persica tree, also known as the arak tree (or peelu tree). Using miswak is both reward able and effective:. Numerous international studies have been done that prove the effectiveness of miswak for oral hygiene and has been highly recommended by Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)
It is encouraged to use a miswaak as often as possible. There are many rewards associated with using a miswaak. The fasting person can also use miswak throughout the day.
