In the 17th century, toothpicks were a luxury object. Like jewelry, toothpicks were made of precious metal and set with expensive stones. Developed by Marc Signorello in 1869, the first toothpick-manufacturing machine started mass producing wooden toothpicks. Made from Birch-wood sheets which are chopped, milled and bleached to lighten them. Then cut into the individual toothpicks. Plastic toothpicks, also called dental pics, are still made in America in Georgia, by Armond’s Manufacturing. These are recommended instead of a wooden toothpick to clean one’s teeth, by the Mayo Clinic. Because they clean more effectively and does not risk injuring the gums.
