Miswak is a special type of tooth-cleaning twig that is used as tooth cleaning brush without use of any paste. Take a fresh miswak twig, equal to the size of your regular tooth brush. Now trim or chew the bark off one end of the stick; about a 1/2 inch. Chew on the exposed end until the twig forms bristles. Brush your teeth as usual and no toothpaste is required.
Natural antiseptic and antibiotic qualities of neem are very helpful to prevent many gum diseases, cavities and oral odour. Break a small branch of the neem plant. Break or cut the tough edges of one side of the stick. Now chew this side of the stick. All the fibres will separate and the end will turn into a little brush and gently brush your teeth with it. The neem toothbrush is disposable, meant to be used only once. After teeth cleaning, spit out all the little bits of neem fibre and wash your mouth with normal water.

Strawberries help polish teeth and keep them white and shiny. They not only kill plaque causing bacteria but also work great to remove stains from teeth. Make a mixture of one mashed strawberry and half teaspoon of baking soda. Using a toothbrush, apply the mixture to your teeth and let it stay for 3-5 minutes. Then rinse and clean your teeth with a regular toothbrush to completely remove the mixture because strawberries are acidic and may damage tooth enamel if allowed to remain on the teeth too long. For best results brush your teeth with this mixture once per week.
