The African Toothbrush

-The African Toothbrush

Before the development of modern brushes, Africans used specific tree branches which contains some antimicrobial substances that could benefit oral hygiene to clean their teeth daily.

Some of our aging parents and others in rural areas and villages still use these chew sticks in this 21st century because of their beliefs.

Some of the myths of chew sticks are that they strengthen the teeth, and never damage the gum.

See the Video of a man below who still uses his African toothbrush.

Chew sticks made from the Salvadora persica tree were used by people in Peninsula, North Africa, and the Indian subcontinent to traditionally clean their teeth while Europeans cleaned their teeth with rags rolled in salt or soot.

According to theconversation, Englishman William Addis got the idea of making a toothbrush in the late 1700 from animal bristles and bone while in prison, he was to sell them on a large scale.

In modern days, after research by pharmacists on oral hygiene, they made use of some tooth cream or powder in making the modern-day toothpaste used alongside the modern-day toothbrushes in cleaning the teeth.

Recently, there are various kinds of potions, tools, and even technology to help keep your teeth and mouth healthy. Meet your dentist for advice/recommendations on the best use for you.
