From Janaka Mahajana Dasa
Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
As some of you may know, Srila Prabhupada manufactured his own toothpaste and later gave the secret of the magic formula to his disciples. To tell you quite frankly, I have tried many brands and many different ways to keep my teeth fit. Due to the constant contact with Bhagavat Prasadam (especially maha-sweets) our teeth have a tendency to merge into the transcendental platform and become invisible to mundane vision, but with this simple and great Srila Prabhupada toothpaste we’ll be safe.
Srila Prabhupada is so wonderful. Not only did he give us the best food but he also took care of our health, both physical and mental in so many ways. Jaya Srila Prabhupada!
One disciple of Srila Prabhupada, His Grace Jaya Murari Dasa, for many years has manufactured and distributed this wonderful cure. I think we should all appreciate his dedication to the saving of this particular part of Srila Prabhuapada’s legacy. I urge all the individual devotees and temples as well to purchase this original, 100 percent natura, Srila Prabhupada tooth paste and thus not only keep our teeth healthy but also help the devotee-organized business. Thus we will be acting as one family, supporting each other not only spiritually but also materially.
Please contact Jaya Murari Prabhu at:

Quotes from Srila Prabhupada
(Get your authorized copy of the VedaBase from the Bhaktivedanta Archives)
You will know that I was collecting nim. But now it is impossible. That also I have manufactured my own toothpaste. I purchase only the brush and I made my toothpaste at home. I never used any toothpaste. Even in my young days. I never used. You have seen it practically. Not only that now I have become sannyasi. When I was grhastha I never used. When I was grhastha I was using that nim datun(?) regularly. And I can give you the paste. So if you cannot use nim datun, you can use this paste.

For your toothache trouble, you can brush your teeth with the following mixture; common salt, 1 part, and pure mustard oil, quite sufficient to make it a suitable paste. With this paste brush your teeth, especially the painful part, very nicely. Gargle in hot water, and keep always some cloves in your mouth. I think that will cure your troubles. It doesn't require to extract any teeth.
