Innovative toothbrush design for more effective cleaning
Summary:
An Italian inventor has designed a new model of device for the care of teeth with an innovative design that allows a deeper and more accurate teeth brushing, even in hard-to-reach areas. He is interested in a manufacturing agreement with companies in the sector of the dental industry.
Description:
An Italian inventor has designed a new ergonomic shape of a device for the care of teeth that allows a more accurate cleaning. The invention is patented. The inventor is looking for manufacturinfg agreement with toothcare devices producers able to implement the invention and bring it to the market.

Devices for the care of teeth, better known as toothbrushes, have been known for a long time already.
These devices consist of a handle presenting a portion equipped with an array of bristles suitable to allow the teeth brushing.
It is likewise known that, to effectively clean the teeth, the toothbrush has to easily reach all the parts of the set of teeth. In particular, it is preferable that the toothbrush operates the brushing of the front and back surface of each tooth operating with reciprocating motion along a vertical direction. In other words, to be correct, the movement of the toothbrush must be performed according to the longitudinal axis of the tooth, on its inner and outer surface.

To better satisfy this requirement, various forms of toothbrushes, different from the traditional toothbrushes, have been proposed.

Common toothbrushes, which have a fixed conformation, allow a correct brushing action on the outer surface; while in the inner surface the brushing action results to be uncomfortable as well as incorrect.

The aim of the present invention is to overcome the cited drawback by devising a device for the care of teeth which enables to carry out an effective cleaning of all the teeth of the mouth, in particular the portion of teeth facing the inside of the mouth.

Within this aim, a goal of the claimed invention is to provide a device for the care of teeth of simple, practical structural conception, equipped with certainly reliable functioning, of versatile use, and also of relatively economical cost.
The cited aims are reached, according to the claimed invention, by the proposed tooth-care device.

The developed toothbrush can be referred to as "tilting" as the portion provided with bristles can assume different positions with respect to the handle.
The articoltation mechanism, which allows the brushing movement, is of great constructional and functional simplicity. The toothbrush is also ergonomic, since it can be indifferently used by right- and left-handed subjects thanks to the specularity of the two positions.
Advantages and Innovations:
- functional parts of the device can easily be made interchangeable;
- the claimed device has the predetermined and limited number of operational positions. This allows using the device more easily in the correct position.
- the device results of simple and sturdy structure in order to have moderate costs, adequate to the requirement of a product of large consumption.
- materials used for the actual realization of the invention, as well as their shapes and sizes, can be various, depending on the requirements.
