Modern dental hygiene as we know it didn’t take off until China invented the first bristle toothbrush in 1498. Prior to that, humans used “chew sticks” – which were basically what it sounds like… sticks. The bristle tooth-cleaning device consisted of the hairs from the back of a wild Siberian hog’s neck attached to bone or bamboo handles. – Although the boar bristles were quite scratchy on the enamel, these were the bristles of choice until 1938, when nylon bristles were introduced by Dupont de Nemours. The name of this groundbreaking product? Doctor West’s Miracle Toothbrush.
