  • The History of Toothbrushes

    Starting nearly 5,000 years ago, ancient civilizations began to remove food from their teeth by using chew sticks, a twig with a frayed end. From there, toothbrushes developed crafted from animal bone or wood. Our modern, manual toothbrushes with nylon-bristles were invented back in 1938 and have continued to develop with the invention of electric toothbrushes in 1939, which were introduced to the U.S. in 1960.  

    Remember:

    • Brush twice a day with your manual or powered toothbrush

    • Don’t routinely cover toothbrushes or store them in closed containers (closed, moist environments are more conducive to microorganism growth than in the open air) 

    • Replace your toothbrush or toothbrush head once every three to four months

  • Cosmetic Dentistry: Credentials Are a Must

    When looking for the right person to redesign your mouth, remember that “cosmetic dentistry” is not a board specialty. Make sure you are seeing a dentist with the right education. Prosthodontists, like Dr. Choi, are specialists that have extensive education in esthetic restorations and tooth replacement. While a cosmetic dentist will help you restore optimal appearance, they don’t have training in the combination of aesthetics and biology. Optimal appearance and function can only be achieved by a Prosthodontist.
