1976 article at Chicago Tribune highlights the following unique selling propositions of the new toothbrush: "an angled-shaped four-sided handle (for comfortable gripping) with an extended neck (that makes hard-to-reach areas more accessible), and a compact head topped with bilevel bristles".

The GUM Denture brush is recommended by dental professionals for the daily care of removable dentures and acrylic retainers. The GUM Denture brush consists of two differently configured brush heads: a flat bristled head for smooth surfaces and a single-tufted head for hard-to-reach areas. The strong flat bristles are extremely resilient and efficiently remove dental plaque, food particles and other debris from the inner and outer surfaces. The single-tufted head consists of tapered bristles, which provide superior cleaning in the hard-to-reach areas regular toothbrushes cannot reach.
Dr. Fresh LLC has acquired REACH brand manual toothbrushes from the Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. The sale includes rights in the U.S., its territories, the Caribbean and Canada. The acquisition does not include REACH brand floss or other interdental products.
The REACH brand debuted in 1972 as the brainchild of two engineers and a dentist who together sought to design a toothbrush that could better clean hard-to-reach places. Inspired by professional dental instruments, REACH manual toothbrushes literally brought a new angle, look and feel to their category and provided consumers with superior results.
"While you can clean your tongue with a toothbrush, tongue scrapers are more effective," says Dr. Horowitz. "Tongue scrapers allow for a better clean of your tongue to get rid of more bacteria." Many toothbrushes now come equipped with a tongue cleaner on the back of the brush head. You can also purchase a tongue scraper separately.
With innovative angled design, The TePe Universal Care allows you to reach even the most difficult-to-reach areas in your mouth. The angle of the neck is perfectly suited for the inside surfaces of the teeth, while the slim head ensures you can squeeze even in the narrowest areas.
While electric toothbrushes do have a slight edge when it comes to cleaning thoroughly, the best manual toothbrush has its own advantages: They're more convenient for travel, easier to find, and often much cheaper, says New York-based cosmetic dentist Lana Rozenberg, DDS. Plus, some people just don't like the feel of electric toothbrushes.
Tom's of Maine toothbrush is simple, sleek, and has all the features dentists recommend with one particular stand-out attribute: a perfectly-curved handle that allows you to reach each tooth more easily.
Moreover, this toothbrush has extremely soft bristles, which all our dentists say is important to avoid gum damage. The bristles are also arranged in a slender, rather than wide, shape, making it easy to reach tight gaps between teeth and the very back of the mouth.
Lastly, this brush has a smaller head, which Dr. Rozenberg vehemently supports as a larger head leads to less precise brushing, while the smaller sizes encourage people to adjust the bristles to reach individual teeth and carefully brush at the gumline.
This is the comfort recliner chair of the toothbrush world, with padding and grippers everywhere, making for an easy to hold product. When I tested this, I felt the company had paid attention to these extra features. However, it was also a bulkier experience than others, which may be a struggle for smaller mouths or hard to reach places.
The only downside I found during testing this fancy toothbrush was that it can feel like you have a pen in your mouth, thanks to the metal handle which clanks against your other teeth if you aren't careful. The handle is also very straight, rather than angled to reach those more difficult spots.
The Nimbus Regular Microfine Xtra Soft is one of the softest toothbrushes available, which makes it especially perfect for sensitive gums and teeth. It basically feels like brushing with a cloud. All of our experts are fans of an uber-soft bristle as it minimizes the ability to brush really aggressively, which means you aren't damaging your oral health in the long run.
Gentle on teeth: All our experts highlighted rough brushing as a concern for gum health down the road, which can cause issues like gum recession and tooth abrasion. Soft toothbrushes are ideal, especially if you also have sensitive teeth. I analyzed the feel of the bristles and how easy it was to mindlessly start brushing roughly. I found that some were more like a baby's hairbrush and others were more like straw.
Handle comfort: You don't realize how much room a toothbrush's handle takes up in your mouth until you use a poorly-designed option. The material and shape of the handle matters. I found some materials (wood, metal) that had a bothersome taste. Plastic seemed to be the most inoffensive handle material, with a bit of a curve near the brush itself to reach the back teeth more easily.
Big news in the world of medicine cabinet goodies: REACH has collaborated with Jeff Lewis, interior designer and star of Bravo's Flipping Out, and Shoshanna Gruss, pattern-loving fashion designer, on a line of high-fashion toothbrushes that will snazzy up your bathroom sink in a snap. A sneak peek at the collaboration along with some other stylish toothbrushes on our radar (yes, there are other stylish toothbrushes on our radar), after the jump.
Coincidentally, I got sucked into the world of West Elm this weekend and ended up tossing a 5-pack of Panteone toothbrushes into my basket (they were $10 at the store but they're only $7.99 on Amazon). A little stark compared with the REACH designs, but chic nonetheless.

Sure, a traditional toothbrush can scrub all the debris from your pearly whites, but can it clean hard-to-reach areas? Can it ensure that you brush the recommended amount of time? No, not really. And besides, you know better than to let your chompers get in contact with a brush you just picked up at the checkout counter.
Miller Kern is the Assistant Reviews Editor at Mashable, where she's been covering products and shopping since 2019. If there's a hot new product or a trend going viral on TikTok, Miller's ready to put it through the wringer to see if it's worth the hype.
The use of toothbrushes is known in the prior art. More specifically, toothbrushes heretofore devised and utilized for the purpose of cleaning teeth are known to consist basically of familiar, expected, and obvious structural configurations, notwithstanding the myriad of designs encompassed by the crowded prior art which has been developed for the fulfillment of countless objectives and requirements.
For example U.S. Pat. No. 5,142,726 to Mann, and U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,152,806 and 4,149,293 to Raaf all disclose toothbrushes with pivotal or movable, members which enable the operator to adjust the bristle length.
In this respect, the toothbrush according to the present invention substantially departs from the conventional concepts and designs of the prior art, and in doing so provides an apparatus primarily developed for the purpose of cleaning the hard to reach areas of the mouth.
Therefore, it can be appreciated that there exists a continuing need for new and improved toothbrushes which can be used for cleaning the hard to reach areas of the mouth. In this regard, the present invention substantially fulfills this need.
In view of the foregoing disadvantages inherent in the known types of toothbrushes now present in the prior art, the present invention provides an improved toothbrush. As such, the general purpose of the present invention, which will be described subsequently in greater detail, is to provide a new and improved toothbrush and method which has all the advantages of the prior art and none of the disadvantages.
The invention will be better understood and objects other than those set forth above will become apparent when consideration is given to the following detailed description thereof. Such description makes reference to the annexed drawings wherein:
The present invention relates to a new and improved toothbrush 10. The toothbrush 10 of the present invention incorporates a head shape which enables it to clean hard to reach areas of the mouth. Furthermore, the toothbrush of the present invention employs a minor bristle section 50 which can be elevated relative to the main bristle section 52. The elevation of the minor bristle section 52 can be achieved by way of an activation mechanism. The entire toothbrush 10 can be constructed from a plastic, or alternatively, from a lightweight metal. The present invention will be more fully described hereafter.
As with conventional toothbrushes, the present toothbrush incorporates a handle portion 15 having a first end and a second end. The first end of the toothbrush can include a circular aperture to facilitate its storage. The only moving parts included in the toothbrush 10 are found in its hollow forward portion 20. The hollow forward portion 20 includes a first extent 25, a second extent 30, and a third extent 35.
The first extent 25 is integral with the handle portion 15 and has a width which is smaller than the width of the handle portion 15. The second extent 30 has a first end integral with the first extent 25, and a second end which is integral with the third extent 35. The second extent 30 has a width which tapers from its first end to its second end. The width of first end of the second extent 30 is greater than the width of the first extent 25, and the width of the second end of the second extent 30 is substantially the same as the width of the first extent 25. An aperture 40 is formed through the third extent 35 of the forward portion 20. Furthermore, the third extent 35 has a uniform width which is substantially the same as the width of the first extent 25. Thus, the forward portion 20 of the toothbrush 10 incorporates a unique tapered shape. This tapered shape enables the toothbrush 10 of the present invention to reach areas of the mouth that would be unreachable by conventional toothbrushes. 041b061a72
