The electric toothbrush, a direct descendant of the modern toothbrush is the next evolutionary step in dental hygiene. The modern handheld toothbrush has only neen used in Europe over the ;ast 350 years, and was originally an import from China. The chinese invention of hog bristle inserted in a bone handle became the precursor to the plastic toothbrush with nylon bristles that was and is still used to this day. Europeans preferred to use horsehair in their toothbrushes, however the design was essentially the same.
Advent of the electric toothbrush
The advent of the electric toothbrush has meant a substantial decline in oral decay. Research has shown that the multidirectional movement on the bristles has helped to reduce plaque build up and gingivitis. We have come a long way since the invention of the first electric toothbrush in 1954. Unsurprisingly a Swiss invention that brought with it most of the characterisitics in modern oral dental care. The ongoing development of what may seem such a seemingly superfluous object in our daily lives is not without good reason. The toothbrush was recently voted the one invention that people could not live without in the US.
As the use of the toothbrush has become one of necessity, the item has a product has also developed to meet the needs of every pocket. Electric toothbrushes are available on a sliding scale from economy down to what we’d expect to be gold plated for the price. For most people it is an investment in their health and consequently a device that is budgeted for. When they can find their desired toothbrush at a lower price all the better.
