Imagining life without this useful personal hygiene tool, invented by man more than 5000 years ago, is difficult, however, before it existed as we know it today, human beings had already designed very rudimentary but effective models. after all. Let's take a chronological journey through the history of the toothbrush, in order to understand its evolution from the Egyptians and Chinese to the present day:
In Europe, to achieve oral hygiene, people were more used to using toothpicks (toothpicks) after meals. These were made of goose feathers or metal (copper or silver).
Until the beginning of the 20th century, the hair of other animals other than the horse and wild boar was also used for dental hygiene. However, it was the hair of the Siberian boar the most used, so much so that it was imported for many years, until in 1937 nylon was invented by Wallace H. Carothers, at DuPont Laboratories in the United States.
In 1938, this new material became the symbol of modernism and prosperity through the commercialization of Dr. West's nylon stockings and miraculous brushes, with nylon bristles of course. Eventually, wild boars stopped being hunted, at least for this purpose.
