Miswaaks (twig toothbrushes) from the following (poisonous) trees are not permissible:

  1. Pomegranate
  2. Bamboo
  3. Raihaan
  4. Chambelie

The following types of Miswaaks are recommended:

  1. Peelo tree
  2. Zaitoon or Olive tree
  3. Bitam
  4. Any bitter tree
  5. Walnut tree

Doesn't the idea of the rough looking (ouch!) miswaak inspire you to stockpile as many "unnatural" toothbrushes as you can afford?

Bamboo shoots are edible; and I have, bye the way, made a toothbrush from Bamboo ... and am here to say so 25 years latter.
