The First Electric Toothbrush

The first electric toothbrush, the Dentacleanomatic was invented in 1893. The inventor, Alexander Dentin was killed in it's first use when he stuck the electric implement under water and into his mouth. The first working, waterproof electric toothbrush wasn't developed until 1910 after many unfortunate failed tests.
