What did the ancient Egyptians brush their teeth with?


Wiki User

Ancient Egyptians brushed their teeth with rocks. Might sound painful but it really wasn't. They also, as time went on by, used hard v-shapped bark (sticks) with string connecting from one end to the other to get in back of the mouth to reach the molars. Other things, such as plants and animal bones (usually fish), where used also. It's funny how i seen your question and today I have a research paper on the health, medical, and sanitation practices of the ancient Egyptians due today, so I've been doing online research all morining. -Ebony age 16
