Toothpaste History

Did you know?
 Toothpastes were first used by the Egyptians and Romans.  Numerous ingredients were tried like, salt, pepper, flowers, mint, ashes from animals heads, feet and heels, as well as burnt bread!  In 1896 Colgate introduced their “Ribbon Dental Cream”.  For awhile brands only provided one dental benefit; it cleaned teeth.  Now-a-days toothpastes come with different options and benefits, fluoride, stain removal, whitening, desensitizing and anti-plaque.  It’s much easier to find what suits your needs.
