About the Practice
Problem Statement:

Traditional toothbrush and its conventional use method


The toothbrush has an integrated arrangement for providing toothbrush and paste in a single assembly. The knob at the bottom of the tooth brush is twisted to push the paste up and out near the tip of the bristles. The handle of the toothpaste has an inner cavity containing the toothpaste. Within the cavity, there is a reciprocating piston, which consists of a threaded rod running across the handle. When the rod is rotated anti-clockwise using a knob at the bottom, the paste is pushed forward into the bristle part of the toothpaste. The bristles are a part of a separate detachable modular unit. The user can choose the hard, medium or soft variant and deploy as required. Any commercial toothpaste can be filled in the toothbrush. The entire unit and components can be cleaned to retain efficacy and maintain hygiene. The toothbrush is made from a suitable food grade material. All the individual parts are replaceable, one can only change the part one wants to instead of changing the whole unit. The idea is to use the toothbrush for a long time and refill the paste when required.Comparable toothbrushes are found in prior art, albeit with a modified configuration. But these instances differ in construction and design from the current innovation.
