tooth powder brands in India

Remember the times when our parents used to brush their teeth with ‘Dant Manjan’? Just like Hema, Rekha, Jaya, and Sushmaa were for Nirma, there was a group of ladies who sang the famous jingle for ‘Promise Dant Manjan.’ Gone are the days when tooth powders were talked about and used by people for oral healthcare, but as we say, ‘The older the fiddle, the sweeter the tune,’ they still have some remarkable oral health benefits. A study by the Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry in 2017 showed that tooth powder is significantly superior to toothpaste in controlling dental plaque and gingivitis. Let's step back in time and revive the long-lost Dant Maanjan era by exploring these tooth powder brands in India.
