A toothbrush is an oral hygiene tool that cleans teeth, gums, and the tongue. It comprises of a head with densely packed bristles on which toothpaste may be placed, attached to a handle that makes cleaning difficult-to-reach parts of the mouth easier. They should be used in conjunction with floss, tape, or interdental brushes to clean between the teeth where the bristles of the toothbrush can’t reach.

They come in a variety of bristle textures, sizes, and shapes. Hard-bristled toothbrushes can damage tooth enamel and irritate the gums. Therefore most dentists advocate using a soft toothbrush.

Because many common and effective ingredients in toothpaste are harmful if swallowed in large doses and should instead spit out, brushing teeth is typically done at a sink in the kitchen or bathroom, where the brush can be rinsed to remove any debris left behind and then dried to reduce conditions conducive to germ growth (and, if it is a wooden toothbrush, mold as well).

Many toothbrushes have bamboo or other plant-based handles. Many others, on the other hand, are made of low-cost plastic, and these brushes are a substantial cause of pollution. In the United States alone, about 1 billion toothbrushes are discarded in landfills each year. Nylon (which, while not biodegradable like plastic, may nevertheless be recycled) or bamboo viscose is the most popular bristle material.

A number of oral hygiene techniques were employed prior to the creation of the toothbrush. Tree branches, bird feathers, animal bones, and porcupine quills were discovered during excavations, proving this.


The chew stick is the toothbrush’s forerunner. Chew sticks were twigs with frayed ends that were used to clean teeth while also serving as toothpicks. Chew sticks were first unearthed in 3500 BC in Sumer, southern Mesopotamia, in an Egyptian tomb from 3000 BC and referenced in Chinese records from 1600 BC.

The Chinese Monk Yijing (635″713 CE) mentions the Indian method of brushing with tooth wood while describing the regulations for monks in his book: “Every morning, a monk must wash his teeth and scrape his tongue with a piece of tooth wood, and this must be done correctly. Salutations should only be made after washing one’s hands and mouth. Both the saluter and the saluted are at fault if this is not the case.

The tooth wood is known as the dantakastha in Sanskrit, with data meaning teeth and kasha meaning piece of wood. It measures twelve finger-widths long. The shortest is around eight finger-widths long and about the same size as the little finger. Chew on one end of the wood for a long time before brushing your teeth with it.”

Toothpicks were used by the Greeks and Romans to clean their teeth, and toothpick-like twigs have been discovered in Qin Dynasty tombs. Chew sticks are still popular in Africa and rural Southern America, and in the Islamic world, chewing stick miswak is considered a holy deed and is required to be used five times a day before each prayer.
