- Formidable Antibacterial Properties
There are over 700 of different strains of bacteria in our mouths, both helpful (e.g. probiotics) and harmful (e.g. Streptococcus) ones. While beneficial bacterial strains support food digestion, harmful ones can erode the enamel and cause gum disease.
As mentioned before, brushing with Miswak sticks is more effective than brushing with a brush, especially because Miswak keeps harmful bacteria levels low through its unique properties. Thus, the World Health Organization encourages the use of Miswak for dental hygiene.
