Egyptians used a mixture of ground pumice stone and wine vinegar to create a toothpaste-like substance, while the Greeks and Romans used crushed bones and oyster shells to give their teeth a sparkling clean. Thankfully, we have come a long way since then, and today we have fancy toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss to keep our pearly whites looking their best.

Poor dental hygiene can lead to gum diseases, tooth decay, and even affect your heart health. So, it's important to establish good dental habits and visit your friendly dentist regularly.
