The Scary and Disgusting Truth About Your Toothbrush

Posted by Flipper Museum On August - 12 - 2014Comments Off on The Scary and Disgusting Truth About Your Toothbrush

Flipper Basic - Travel

Your humble old toothbrush might look innocent enough. But it’s a huge bacteria magnet.

A toothbrush can contain over 10 million bacteria including E. coli and Staph, says a University of Manchester study.

“In an unbrushed mouth, there can be as many germs as a dirty bathroom floor,” prosthodontist Dr. Ann Wei told Grandparents.com.

Your toothbrush can be contaminated by the water splashed when we wash our hands, or worse, by bacteria from an open-flushed toilet. Eww.

Nasties that fall from toilet spray remain airborne long enough to settle on surfaces throughout the bathroom.

And if you drop your toothbrush on the floor, the five second rule does not apply.

It picks up airborne bacteria that has settled on the floor and everything else that people traipse through via their feet.

Now that we’ve totally grossed you out, are you ready to start giving your toothbrush the respect it deserves? Here’s how to keep your toothbrush clean:

Get a new brush

You should replace your brush every three to four months, or when the bristles become a bit tattered.

Use the right toothpaste

Some toothpastes are better than others at killing germs. Buy one that contains triclosan or copolymer — it’s better than regular fluoride toothpastes at killing oral bacteria.

Don’t share toothbrushes

Keep your bacteria to yourself. When you’re squeezing toothpaste onto your brush, make sure you don’t press the opening onto the bristles. “It’s better to lay the toothpaste over the brush without physically contacting the toothpaste opening,” says Wei.

Clean your brush thoroughly

Make sure you rinse your brush thoroughly after each use. And occasionally soak it in mouthwash or hydrogen peroxide, especially if you’ve dropped it on the floor.

“I occasionally put mine through the dishwasher,” said a spokesman for the American Dental Association.

Close the toilet lid

Always close the toilet lid before you flush. Every time.

Expose it to air

Dentists say you shouldn’t store your toothbrush in an airtight container. The best way to store your toothbrush is in the medicine cabinet — that way, it still gets enough air, but is protected from external bacteria. And when toothbrushes are stored together, make sure the heads don’t touch.

History of Toothbrush

Posted by Flipper Museum On April - 1 - 2010Comments Off on History of Toothbrush

Toothbrushes are now commonplace in our daily routines. In fact, many of us have taken it for granted – but did you know that toothbrushes have a long history dating all the way back to 3500BC? Let’s have a look at how toothbrushes have evolved:

Early Toothbrush – Chewing Stick

The earliest toothbrushes were primitive. From around 3500BC, the Egyptians and Babylonians began to chew on sticks so that the wood fiber would form a brush that they could use to clean their teeth. This form of toothbrush is also the direct ancestor of the Miswak toothbrush (essentially a twig off the Salvadora persica tree) that is still popular in some Muslim communities today as it is endowed with natur

al healing and antiseptic properties. Image Courtesy of www.toptipspot.com

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

First Bristled Toothbrush

Europeans, on the other hand, coped by dipping cloth or sponges in oils and salt solutions to rub and clean their teeth. By the late 15th century, the Chinese had their versions of toothbrushes as they plucked hairs from Siberian wild boars and pasted them onto animal bones or bamboo sticks. Eventually, Englishman William Addis emulated the Chinese approach and introduced the modern form of toothbrushes to Europe in 1780, using a similar combination of bones and animal hairs.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

First Patented Toothbrush

Meanwhile, entrepreneur H.N. Hadsworth helped to popularize toothbrush usage in America. In 1857, he was granted the very first toothbrush patent, and that lead to the mass production of toothbrushes from 1885.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Plastic Toothbrush

Toothbrush handles were made with soup bones until World War I disrupted the supplies (bones were diverted for the troops instead). Thus, an alternative material had to be found – and moldable plastic celluloid rose to the challenge.

By 1938, DuPont further cemented plastic’s central role in toothbrushes by using nylon bristles on toothbrushes on a large scale. With the advantage of lower costs and improved performance, fully plastic-based toothbrushes soon took central stage and became the norm.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Electric Toothbrush

Simultaneously, Switzerland saw the first electric toothbrush in 1939, as scientists sought to improve cleaning results by simulating brushing actions. Electric toothbrushes, however, did not take off for most of the century, even as they became much more technologically sophisticated. For example, the Oral-B Triumph 9100 can detect and monitor how thoroughly you have brushed your teeth, and alerts you to quadrants that need further brushing. However, the manual toothbrush still forms the great majority in home usage.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Today, there are over 3000 patents on various types of toothbrushes, with continued research and innovations in toothbrush development. Regardless of its size and shape though, the various toothbrushes through time and civilizations share the same goal – to help us maintain our oral hygiene, and give us brighter sparkly smiles!
