Daily toothpaste use is required to maintain excellent oral hygiene and health. The three most prevalent dental problems are gingivitis, plaque, and periodontal diseases. Herbal and synthetic ingredients are used to formulate toothpaste. This research was conducted to develop a toothpowder capable of maintaining excellent oral hygiene and overcoming the disadvantages of conventional toothpowder made with synthetic ingredients. Toothpowder is used in conjunction with a toothbrush to maintain oral hygiene and prevent tooth decay. To create the ideal toothpowder, numerous herbal ingredients were combined. These constituents have antibacterial, antiseptic, and cooling properties, allowing them to fulfil all of the necessary criteria for maintaining oral hygiene and preventing bacterial tooth decay. The prepared tooth powder was evaluated for its organoleptic and physical properties, such as colour, odour, flavour, stability, foaming ability, and abrasiveness, to ensure that it possesses all of the characteristics necessary to combat dental diseases. This natural tooth powder was formulated from Azadirachta indica (neem leaves), Psidium guajava (guava leaves), Cinnamomum verum (cinnamon), Syzygium aromaticum (clove), Ocimum sanctum (Tulsi), Phyllanthus emblica (Amla), and halite (crystal salt). The combination of these herbal constituents enabled the production of highly effective toothpowder.
