Fun Facts

Toothbrush Timeline:
The first people to use a toothbrush were the people of India who used the end of a fresh neem twig to wipe their teeth after meals.  In 1600 China, people used a brush made of horsetail hairs attached on a cattle bone stick.
In 1780, Williams Addis of England created the first mass-produced toothbrush.  H.N. Wadsworth put a patent on the toothbrush style we know today back in 1857.  In 1938, the natural bristles made from animal hair were replaced with the more sanitary synthetic fibers, such as nylon.  Public health organizations first began promoting dental health in 1945.  Just think of how far we’ve come.
