Amog Presents: The Future Of Tooth-Brushing

We at AMOG hope you readers out there brush your teeth regularly, but for anyone who may wonder what new methods of doing a mundane task can get more exciting while cleaning your teeth better, we found something via

Leen Sadder, a graduate student, has invented quite the unique toothbrush. Essentially, it is a Miswak twig which has fibers that are much softer than the bristles on a normal toothbrush. Miswak has been used in the Saharan desert for thousands of years and is a natural source of fluoride.

I don’t know if this interests you guys, but this is one of the best inventions we at AMOG have come across, simply because someone should watch the amount of fluoride they use when sing toothpaste; too much can be harmful to overall health.

What are some health benefits you think this special tree possesses? According to, some of these special assets might make you want to pick one up next time your at the grocery store:

  • Kills Gum disease causing bacteria.
  • Fights plaque effectively.
  • Fights against caries.
  • Removes Bad breath and odor from mouth.
  • Creates a fragrance in the mouth.
  • Effectively clean between teeth due to its parallel bristles.
  • Increases salivation and hence inhibits dry mouth (Xerostomia)

Thanks to a little creativity on the marketing end of this special brush, the Miswak brush can now be found at most stores where toothbrushes are sold.

“THIS” concept aims to package and promote the Miswak as an organic and biodegradable alternative to the Western teeth cleansing routine. It’s amazing how Leen has turned the miswak into a brand-able product.

I’m seriously thinking of using this brush myself that that I know about it. Ever used the Tea Tree Oil toothpicks as well. For a healthy regimen of teeth, your breath can’t be stinkin’!
