Image: America Brushes Up: The Use and Marketing of Toothpaste and Toothbrushes in the Twentieth Century | Paperback: 238 pages | by Kerry Segrave (Author). Publisher: McFarland (January 27, 2010)Nylon Toothbrush Birthday (1938)
-- It was as late as 1938 synthetic materials (notably nylon) started replacing the animal-hair bristles. The first nylon toothbrush to go on sale was Doctor West's Miracle Toothbrush, which was made available for mass consumption on February 24, 1938.

Read: America Brushes Up: The Use and Marketing of Toothpaste and Toothbrushes in the Twentieth Century
-- This excursion into American cultural history looks at the toothpaste and toothbrush industries from 1900 to 2008. During these years, America moved from cleaning their teeth mostly with homemade powders to using an enormous array of brands, often applied with an electric toothbrush. From early 20th century products like Forhan's (which cured pyorrhea) to the whiteners of the 1920s (which unfortunately also removed tooth enamel), and from paste which eliminated that clinging film and to copywriters who wondered where the yellow went, the history of toothpaste has long been a testament to the power of misleading advertising.
