Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Had I not
thought it difficult for my Ummah, I would have commanded them to use the Miswak (tooth-stick) before every
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
We learn from this Hadith that the Prophet (PBUH) liked to clean his teeth with Miswak (
a softened
stick used as tooth brush for cleaning the teeth
) with every Salat, but he did not made it obligatory for the reason that
it would be inconvenient for his followers. It shows that he was extremely affectionate and kind to his Ummah.
This Hadith also shows that using Miswak is an admirable act. Every Muslim should make it a routine to use it as
frequently as possible especially before performing prayers.

Hudaifah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Whenever the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) got up (from
sleep), he would rub his teeth with Miswak (tooth-stick)
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
When a person awakes from sleep, he has an unpleasant breath because of the smell in his mouth.
For this reason, the Prophet (PBUH) would cleanse his teeth with Miswak. We should also follow him and make this
Sunnah a routine.

`Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) reported:
We used to prepare for the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) a
Miswak (tooth-stick) and the water for making Wudu'. Whenever Allah wished to awaken him from sleep at night,
he (PBUH) would brush his teeth with Miswak, make Wudu', and perform Salat
This Hadith shows how particular the Prophet (PBUH) was about using Miswak. Besides pointing
out the importance of Miswak, it also throws light on the noble conduct of the wives of the Prophet (PBUH) as it
shows how keen they were about his needs, habits and temperament.
