use of neem-sticks

When we get up in the morning it is our habit to brush our teeth and wash our mouth and face. All of us do this daily. Again, some of us brush at night before going to bed. We use powder, neem-stick or paste for this purpose. I have seen a few persons in our place with very sound teeth even at the age of sixty and I have seen that they have used the neem-sticks only. It means that they have never used any paste and brush and still not a single tooth they have to sacrifice. On the other hand, person using tooth paste of some of the top-ranking and responsible multi-nationals have lost one or more than one tooth at an early age. I want to know if use of the neem-sticks to clean our teeth is better and dependable.

Yes, Neem is an age-old prescription.Personally, I would have preferred it if it had been easily available in towns and cities.You know it is not. Therefore wehave to depend on the paste and powder. I would add two words in this context. 1.Not only neem sticks are benificial for teeth,other parts of a neem tree ate extensively used in our country. Neem leaves are considered very healthy for both our stomach and our skin and they are extensively used in our villages and even towns if available, in spite of so many medicines being available.2. Between toothpaste and powder, I would suggest that tooth powder is far better and advisable. Only,you have to spend a few more minutes to brush your teeth. It is a lot cheaper too.More details may be gone into if our friends are interested.
