The first true bristled toothbrush  originated in China at around 1600 AD. At around 1780, the first toothbrush was made by William Addis of Clerkenald, England. Addis manufactured the finest English brushes, where the handles were carved out of the bone of cattle and the natural bristles were obtained from the necks and shoulders of swine, especially from pigs living in colder climates like Siberia and China. By the early 1800s the bristled brushes were in general use in Europe and Japan. In 1857, Wadsworth was credited as the first American to receive a toothbrush patent as America entered the growing toothbrush market.
