Dabur Meswak - Herbal Toothpaste is scientifically formulated herbal toothpaste with pure extract of the Miswak plant 'Salvadora Persica', the famous 'Toothbrush Tree' used for centuries.
High concentrations of chloride (which is there in Miswak extract) inhibit the formation of calculus and aid in removing stains from tooth surfaces. Silica in Miswak acts as an abrasive and found to help in removing stains from tooth surfaces. The mildly bitter taste of the essential oils in Miswak extract stimulates the flow of saliva, which acts as a buffering agent and hence maintains PH.
Plaque is the sticky, colourless film that constantly forms on your teeth. If plaque is not removed regularly by brushing and flossing, it hardens to create calculus (also known as tartar). Calculus cannot be removed with a toothbrush; only a dental professional can remove it during an oral cleaning. Once tartar forms, the acids released by the bacteria in your mouth can break down your tooth enamel, leading to cavities and tooth decay. Tartar that develops above the gum line can be especially serious as it can irritate and damage the gums. Over time, this inflammation can lead to progressive gum diseases, which can have serious consequences if left untreated. If tartar is not removed and gingivitis (the 1st stage of gum disease) is left untreated, it can progress into a more serious form of gum disease known as periodontitis. This can ultimately lead to tooth loss and bone degradation. In addition, this dental condition may contribute to heart diseases and other conditions. Thus, it is important to control this dental problem before things get out of hand. Here is how you can prevent tooth decay:
