The identity of the person who first invented the toothbrush is not known. Various forms of tooth cleaning have been used for thousands of years.

The Chinese have used the bristle toothbrush since 1498, during the reign of the Hongzhi Emperor (r. 1487--1505) of the Ming Dynasty. The idea is thought to have been brought to Europe by Europeans who had traveled to China.

The earliest identified use of the word "toothbrush" in English was in the autobiography of Anthony Wood, who wrote in 1690 that he had bought a toothbrush from J. Barret.

Mass production of the toothbrush began in 1780 when they were sold by a William Addis of Clerkenwald, England. The modern toothbrush uses nylon fibers instead of pig, boar or badger bristles, and was introduced in 1938 by the DuPont Company.

I don't know who but I can tell you theyost likely wanted clean teeth


Maybe because before they invented one, nobody brushed their teeth, so when they started , they only had one tooth left. Just a thought though, that's probably not the reason. I beileve the answer is this: The first toothbrush recorded in history was made in 3000 B.C., the toothbrush was called a chewstick, which was a twig with a frayed end used to brush each tooth, one at a time. Hence the name toothbrush.


the ancient Chinese created the first toothbrush in 1498. it had a bone or bamboo handle with holes in one end. boar bristles were tied into the holes.


toothbrush as we know it today was not invented until 1938. However, early forms of the toothbrush have been in existence since 3000 BC.

These 'chew sticks' were rubbed against the teeth.The bristle toothbrush, similar to the type used today, was not invented until 1498 in China. The bristles were actually the stiff, coarse hairs taken from the back of a hog's neck and attached to handles made of bone or bamboo.Boar bristles were used until 1938, when nylon bristles were introduced by Dupont de Nemours. The first nylon toothbrush was called Doctor West's Miracle Toothbrush. Later, Americans were influenced by the disciplined hygiene habits of soldiers from World War II.
