Emergency Preparedness – Imagine Life Without a Toothbrush
At the beginning of the 20th Century two things were certain: the average American family of four had one toothbrush per household, and that family was lucky to have two full sets of teeth between them.
The greatest advances in oral hygiene have been made in just the last 70 years. Exported Chinese hog bristles made it possible for toothbrushes to be cheap. Tooth powder (a big step up from baking soda) was replaced by toothpaste when someone realized paste could be dispensed from a squeeze tube used for artist paints. Now we have arrived at $80-120 rechargeable oral hygiene systems that include spinning brushes, gum stimulators, water flushers and sprayers. Wow, your mouth can now feel as good as your feet after a run in Dr. Scholl’s gel inserts or Michael Jordan $120 signature model athletic shoes.
You can imagine what life would be like without a toothbrush. Halitosis is better than no breathe at all, but not much. Good toothbrushes cost about $1. Pick up some extras this week for your inventory, along with some extra toothpaste. Remember, if you are true to your teeth, they will never be false to you.
