ToothBrushes have been around since the dawn of man. “Toothbrushing tools date back to 3500-3000 BC when the Babylonians and the Egyptians made a brush by fraying the end of a twig”. We moved on to a toothbrush made from boar bristles until 1938, when nylon bristles were introduced by Dupont de Nemoursconsists. The new standard became a plastic handle and nylon bristles attached to the head of the brush, which is still widely used today.By the 1990s, countless styles, brands and types of toothbrushes flooded the market.
