Throughout this project an innovative teeth hygiene and oral health tool especially for children was developed. This project combines century-old natural methods with modern-day design adapted to smaller children’s specific needs to play and discover by chewing on objects and ergonomics. Functionally, Oral Health for Children is based on traditional Miswak chewing sticks – very popular in Arab cultures – which are a natural toothbrush made from the twigs of the Salvadora persica tree.
