  2. Thanks for your interesting dental facts. I had no idea that the first electric toothbrush was invented way back in 1939. It wasn't until the last ten years that they really became a common household object. My family dentist recommends using an electric toothbrush because they often have timers on them to make sure that you have sufficiently brushed your teeth.
