MISWAK

The miswak (miswaak, siwak, sewak, Arabic: سواك‎ or مسواك) is a teeth cleaning twig made from the Salvadora persica tree (known as arāk, أراك, in Arabic). It is reputed to have been used over 7,000 years.

I don't know why it is exclusively attributed to Islam and Muslims when the entire world including the arch enemy of Islam Abu Jahl too was using it. As far as I know there was no invention of tooth paste or tooth brush then 🖌️- So using miswak was also a habitual practice (sunnat) of Abu Jahl too.
Don't make natural things holy or unholy in the name of religion.
