Summary

An Italian inventor has designed a new model of toothbrush with an innovative manual mechanism that allows a deeper and more accurate teeth cleaning, even in hard-to-reach areas. He is interested in a commercial agreement with technical assistance or 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 but there is not yet a prototype. The inventor is looking for manufacturing agreement or a commercial agreement with technical assistance with tooth care devices producers able to implement the invention and to bring it to the market.

These new model of toothbrushes consist in an 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, 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.

This invention claim 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. It could be also be manufactured with eco-friendly materials.

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 articulation mechanism, which allows the brushing movement, is of great constructional and functional simplicity (it could be activated by mouth). 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

- The 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 (also eco-friendly materials).
