Tooth powder is an alternative to toothpaste. Modern versions may be sold with or without fluoride. Tooth powder was historically used among the Romans to clean and whiten teeth, to fix them when loose, to strengthen the gums, and to assuage toothache. Some versions contained honey, ground myrrh, niter, salt, and hartshorn, which would be added after the initial powdering process. The use of powdered substances such as charcoal, brick, and salt for cleaning teeth has been historically widespread in India, particularly in rural areas. Modern tooth powder has been positioned as a cost-effective substitute for toothpaste, as it can be applied with the index finger without requiring the use of a toothbrush.
