Dental Hygiene 10-22

  1. 1. Dental Hygiene • We use dental products on a daily basis to keep our teeth and gums healthy. The dental cleaning tools and techniques we use today are much different than those used by our ancestors. Let’s take a look at the history of dental hygiene! • The first people to use a toothbrush were the Hindus, in India, circa 4000 B.C. They chewed the frayed end of a twig to remove food particles and plaque from their teeth.www.drkezian.com
  2. 2. Dental Hygiene • In 1780, William Addis created the first toothbrush while he was in jail. He tied horsehair into tufts and glued them to a small animal bone. The design of the modern toothbrush was patented by H.N. Wadsworth in 1857. In 1938, nylon bristles and plastic handles were invented. Nylon was less damaging to teeth and gums than was animal hair. • In 1939, Dr. Phillippe-Guy Woog invented the first electric toothbrush, called the Broxodent. Today’s standard toothbrush has more than 25,000 bristles tied together in 40 groups of tufts. Dental hygiene has come a long way!www.drkezian.com
  3. 3. Dental Hygiene • In the 1800s patients were introduced to a thin silk thread to clean between their teeth which was later made with a nylon material, a better flossing material than silk. The silk often shredded when slid between teeth, and nylon was smoother and had a more consistent texture and resistance. • It’s important to keep proper dental hygiene and clean between your teeth. Flossing is the number one way to do so, but only 28 percent of people floss daily.www.drkezian.com

Los Angeles Dentist, Dr. Kezian, takes continuing education courses and attends dental seminars to provide patients with the newest advances and developments. • Please call to make your appointment with Dr. Kezian, a Los Angeles Dentist.www.drkezian.com
