A toothpick, a small stick or bamboo, used to remove debris from the teeth. Toothpick is an important oral hygiene appliance, it has more than 2000 years of history. Because of its small size, the material is usually made of wood or bamboo. It is also easy to be turned into Ashes, so its status is humble, and historically there is little evidence of the invention of toothpicks. Fortunately, Chinese archaeologists have unearthed a toothpick made of gold, probably in the late Han Dynasty.
Although this kind of gold toothpick belongs to a few royal family, but not ordinary people all, but still can prove that the year 3rd century China already had toothpicks.
