A little free toothbrush history lesson for you kids out there.
A variety of oral hygiene measures have been used since before recorded history. This has been verified by various excavations done all over the world, in whichchew sticks, tree twigs, bird feathers, animal bones and porcupine quills were recovered. A recent archaeological dig has found that the earliest use of toothbrushes may have occurred in Africa. It was discovered that a bristle toothbrush had been used there as early as 1600 B.C.
The first non-bristle toothbrush found was in China during the Tang Dynasty (619–907) and used hog bristle. In 1223, Japanese Zen master D?gen Kigen recorded on Sh?b?genz? that he saw monks in China clean their teeth with brushes made of horse-tail hairs attached to an ox-bone handle. The bristle toothbrush spread to Europe, brought back from China to Europe by travellers. It was adopted in Europe during the 17th century. Many mass-produced toothbrushes, made with horse or boar bristle, were imported to England from China until the mid-20th century.
