A Timeless Tale of Tooth Care
Centuries ago, small twigs which scraped off food particles from teeth were the method
of choice to keep teeth clean. They were known as chew sticks, and they have long
been replaced by the toothbrush (a much needed improvement!).
Ancient Egyptians viewed white teeth as a sign of wealth and a mark of beauty. A pumice stone mixed in wine vinegar was used to create a whitening paste. As unappealing as that may sound, the primitive Romans had an even worse technique. Their idea of a bleaching agent was found in the ammonia in urine. Yes, they used urine to whiten their teeth (gross!).
Let’s move on from that unpleasant thought, shall we.
Those who lived in the 17th century left both their hair and dental care to their barber who would file down the teeth and apply an acid used to whiten them. Unfortunately, in addition to whiter teeth, it eventually led to tooth enamel erosion and decay.
Thankfully, today’s whitening methods have advanced. However, the art of bleaching teeth started as a mishap.
According to Dr. Jean Arthur, a restorative and cosmetic dentist in Providence, Rhode Island, a group of dentists stumbled upon the use of peroxide-filled trays as a bleaching method to achieve whiter teeth.
Peroxide had already been used as an oral antiseptic gel to treat the gums. In the 1960’s, dentists were testing different ways to use the gel for longer periods of time. That’s when they realized a noticeable side effect of peroxide treatment for the gums –the longer the treatment was left in the mouth, the whiter the teeth.
It wasn’t long before teeth whitening became a thing.
Dr. Arthur recommends that if you want to remove superficial stains on your teeth, start by receiving regular cleanings from your dental hygienist. To get an even brighter smile, use another method such as a high quality whitening treatment.
