Benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC), benzyl cyanide (BC), and benzaldehyde (BA) concentration in saliva. (a) The concentration of compounds in saliva collected during fresh Miswak use (Saliva-1), saliva collected when Miswak was used for a second time (Saliva-2), and saliva collected while using Miswak for a fourth time (Saliva-4). (b) The concentration of compounds in saliva before brushing, immediately after brushing with fresh Miswak, and after 5, 10, and 30 min of Miswak brushing. In the above figure the bars denoted with and are significantly different when the comparison was made between the concentration of same compound detected in different samples.
