Its more than half a century since the toothbrush was invented and in 2038 it will become 100 years old. The toothbrush had become rapidly the most hygenic dental tool and replaced the twigs which were used by man since centuries.
Initially the bristles were made from the tail of pigs since plastic was not available such that to make it available for daily dental use in the form of bristles. The invention of the toothbrush has given a lot to the society, I mean that sarcastily. What benifit did it bring? Have you ever thought about it?
Toothbrush has given us nothing but an industrially produced product that looks sleek and needs a soapy paste in order to use it. So, basically cheap twigs were replaced by a comparatilely expensive brush and a compulsary paste so the brush can be used. We got cheated, and I dont need to give you documented proof as I have my own experience on both the twigs and the brush.
A long time ago I was worried about my stainy teeth as the brush could never take the stains off and I used to brush and press the bristles which eventually caused damage to my gums. Then I was thought to goto my dentist and when I complained about my stainy teeth the Dentist replied that such stains never go after brushing and I will need to clean my teeth via a dental process which will cost a bomb. So, here eventually everyone makes money and I loose. I finally went through the cleaning process, and my teeth were white again. However, it stained again after one or two months. I had to brush in a manner the doctor advised me but I didn’t follow the steps and ended up staining my teeth again.
After this I once visited my village in Nashik and I saw the people brushing with a power made of tobacco, their teeth were glossy white and they brushed only once. I spoke to an old woman there and she advised me to use neem twigs instead of the tobacco as tobacco powder does more harm to the other areas. So, I used the neem twigs as the old lady had instrusted me. I used the neem twigs for just two days and my teeth had become completly white. No Chemical, No Artificial Flavour, No Brush, Just Pure Ayurveda or the age old technique which Indian’s always used. One can use the twigs which were used by their ansectors as they all have unique properties and not nnecassarily one should use neem twigs only. I also used babool twigs and it had its own uniqueness.
So, here my experience with the tooth brush was not so great and the twigs had beaten it.
I urge everyone to keep the tooth brush aside and use the twigs instead. The twigs are far more better. Just try to use it atleast twice a week and you will notice the difference.
