Datuns: Indian Traditional Tooth Brush

While "DATUNS" are being sold in America @ approximately Rupees 68/- each, these are inexpensive in India but we are brain washed to use tooth pastes and tooth brushes.

Dentists say we could do irreversible harm to our teeth by using "Datuns".

Consumer is to decide. more

Dear Sanjay Kumar Ji, My post is to highlight that Indians have been traditional users of Datuns but now leaving aside rural population, Indians living in the cities and towns are not even aware of it. Datun is just a peace of branch, nothing else. It was used by sages, it was used by Bhagwan Krishna(remember when mal yudh was going on between Duryodhana and Bheem, Krishana splitted the Datun and threw the split pieces at opposite ends telling indirectly Bheem to do likewise with Duryodhna). It has been proved that datuns ,specially Neem and Miswak, are good for the teeth. What scientific proof one needs when old generation is still using datun on whatever teeth they have without any complication. I am not saying you should immediately discard the toothbrush and start using datun. But what I say is developed countries have started using datuns but the 'Originating ' country is going away from it. And by the way if you like the article, please tick 'Helpful'. more  
Thanks Yash Chopra Ji for liking the post and ticking "Helpful". more  
Thanks sharma ji , for information regarding datun , it is indeed good , a lot of old generation are /were using it.I simply find difficult to link the benefits of tooth paste as compared patanjili dantkranti etc , which shows additional benefits , even doctors prescribed toothpaste give guarantee , whereas datun despite traditionally popular , yet to prove scientifically. Well it is not bad to spend Rs 68 as trial but significance of other toothpaste trustworthy. more  
Dear Sanjay Kumar Ji, I think you have no idea of a datuns and also you have not observed the picture fully because it is labeled "Chew Sticks Neem". These are sticks of Neem Tree (branches), cut , washed and packed/labeled. No formulation is required for them at all. Plenty of these trees are found in the rural areas where datuns are prepared and sent to town. Still some old people prefer to use datun. People in the morning just pick the branch and make a datun afresh everyday, use and throw. In fact they make tongue cleaner after using the datun by splitting it vertically. Ancient India everyone was using only datun made from Neem, Ply, Miswak etc. No tooth paste or no tooth powder or mouth wash. more  
Could use when we were kids!! Now where to buy in big cities? Will be choice, if easily available. more
