Most people, especially the poor, would have rubbed their teeth with a rag and salt or ashes. Tooth brushes were in use in China c. 1400, in England about 1690, and mass produced tooth brushes were available in the 1780s. The modern American toothbrush was invented in 1938.

Since they were born in 1765 and 1767 respectively, both should have grown and aged significantly - from toddlers to young children - over that span of time.
