Application for the same was granted on 27-10-2020 and it was also published on the same day with the patent no. US10813609B2. This patent disclosure pertains to a dental treatment device that combines the functions of multiple dental hygiene tools to improve convenience and effectiveness.
Regular dental care is crucial, but some people find it time-consuming or struggle with proper brushing and flossing techniques, leading to issues like plaque buildup and gum disease. To address these challenges, this invention introduces a dental treatment device that combines features of traditional toothbrushes, water flossers, and more.
Water flossers are known for their effectiveness but require accurate water jet direction. Sonic toothbrushes can remove plaque but may not tackle bacteria under the gums. The existing tools have limitations, necessitating the use of multiple devices for comprehensive oral care. This disclosure proposes a dental treatment device with a head assembly featuring multiple nozzles for fluid dispensing and manoeuvring independently.
Additionally, it incorporates bristles for traditional brushing. This combination aims to provide consistent, efficient, and effective oral treatment while maintaining user convenience. The accompanying figures illustrate the device’s design, showcasing its versatile features. This invention could potentially streamline oral hygiene routines, offering a single, multifunctional device that covers brushing, flossing, and gum massaging, ultimately promoting better dental health.
In summary, this patent disclosure introduces a dental treatment device that integrates the functions of various dental tools, addressing the challenges of time-consuming and ineffective dental care routines. By combining multiple features in one device, it aims to enhance user convenience and oral hygiene outcomes.
