When did they invent toothbrushes?


The toothbrush as we know it today was not invented until 1938. However, early forms of the toothbrush have been in existence since 3000 BC. Ancient civilizations used a “chew stick,” which was a thin twig with a frayed end. These 'chew sticks' were rubbed against the teeth.
