2.Use certain tree twigs to whiten your teeth
This is an age old tradition still followed in some parts of India and its neighboring countries. Ayurveda speaks of certain trees that have certain astringent and other properties that can give you white teeth provided you use them regularly. The twigs of these trees are used for brushing the teeth. And how? You have to take a tender (not very soft and not too hard) twig of the tree from its branch. This should be of the length of a standard toothbrush. Wash this twig well with clean water. Now holding one end of the twig with your hands, put the other end of the twig in your mouth and chew it slowly. In a few minutes, the end of the twig that you are chewing will get scattered and the fibers would come out of it. If you take it out of your mouth, you will see that it looks like an artist’s brush, though a rough one. This is your natural tooth brush. Use this fibrous end of the twig to brush your teeth for at least 15-20 minutes. Now discard this twig and use a fresh one the next time. Now the big question is – what trees to look for to get these twigs? Here is the list of such trees.
Babool tree (Acacia Arabica)- Babul tree is one of the most tooth friendly tree. Its extract is used in many herbal toothpastes also that are commercially available in the market. The tannin present in the twigs of babul tree is the component that will make your yellow teeth whiter.
Banyan tree (Ficus religiosa)- The natural astringent present in the roots of banyan tree- the ones that hang in the air from above the tree’s top- make your teeth white like pearls.
Neem or Margosa (Azadirachtha indica)- Not only astringent, neem tree twigs also have antiseptic properties that can treat bad breath and also cure dental caries and cavities along with making your teeth white.
