Strengthens Gums Grip

Dabur Meswak toothpaste is scientifically formulated herbal toothpaste with pure extract of the Miswak plant 'Salvadora Persica', the famous 'Toothbrush Tree' used for centuries.

Miswak extract has a very good astringent effect on the gums. The astringent effect of tannins may help to reduce clinically detectable gingivitis. Tannins were found to inhibit the action of glucosyltransferase, thereby reducing plaque and gingivitis. The tannic acid present in the extract has an astringent effect on the mucous membrane, thus leading to a good gum grip. Overall control of gingival bacteria also helps in strengthening the gums and giving a good gum grip making the teeth healthy.

How to Keep Your Gums and Teeth Healthy - Dabur Meswak


Eat Healthy

Consume the following food stuff to maintain healthy gum grip.

  • Foods with fibre, such as fruits and vegetables have a detergent-like effect in your mouth. They also stimulate saliva flow, which, is the best natural defence against cavities and gum diseases.
  • Cheese, milk, plain yogurt, and other dairy products. Cheese is another saliva generator. The calcium in cheese, and the calcium and phosphates in milk and other dairy products, help put back minerals that your teeth might have lost due to other foods.

Maintain Oral Hygiene

Brush for 2 minutes atleast at a time, at least twice daily. While brushing, work your way around your mouth and spend about 12 to 15 seconds in each spot. Floss at least once daily! Rinse out your mouth well, especially after every meal. Try brushing at a 45° angle as this helps remove plaque and food/drink particles stuck in your teeth better. You should also try to avoid snacking between meals as much as possible, as it results in more food debris and bacteria building up in the mouth. These proper techniques will keep you happy and free from any dental problems.

Take Precautions

Wear dental guards while playing sports, so that you do not loose gum grip in an unforeseen accident.
