  17. 17.  Colgate 360° is an advanced design manual toothbrush which includes the following bristle features: cleaning tips on the heel and toe of the brush for cleaning in hard to reach areas; polishing cups to hold toothpaste against the teeth; and vertical tapered bristles for interdental cleaning.  Oral-B Exceed toothbrush has a cris-cross configuration of the bristles angled in opposite directions to enhance penetration and cleaning between teeth relative to toothbrushes with the vertical bristle configuration.
  18. 18.  Various products are made from these two basic design of modern toothbrushes .some examples are:Colgate 360° Optic White Toothbrushes, UP TOOTHBRSH 4CT CLN SOFT BRUSH, Reach REACH Adult Advance Design 2CT SOFT - 2 Ct.,  Oral-B Pro-Health For Me CrossAction Toothbrush, COLGATE TOTAL ADVANCE FLS TB FHS 1CT, Colgate 360 Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothbrush,etc.

  21. 21. Recent advances in powered toothbrush  Power toothbrush technologies can be grouped into four general categories: rotating, counter rotational, side-to-side, and oscillating-rotating (Table 1).  With a rotating power toothbrush, the entire brushhead turns in a full circle, moving in one direction. In contrast, a counter-rotational brush has tufts that rotate in different directions. With oscillating-rotating technology,the brushhead oscillates from the center point but does not rotate in a full circle. Recently a pulsating,or in-out movement, has been added to some oscillating-rotating power toothbrushes. Sonic and oscillating-rotating technologies (with or without pulsation) are the most commonly used in power toothbrushes today.    
  22. 22. Recent advances in Sonic Powered toothbrush These types of toothbrushes produce high frequency vibrations (1.6MHz)which leads to the phenomenon of cavitation and acoustic microstreaming. This phenomenon aids in stain removal as well as disruption of the bacterial cell wall (bactericidal).  In recent times Philips company is the leading contender in advances in sonic toothbrushes.
  23. 23. Philips Sonicare is based on patented sonic technology. Sonicare achieves its bristle velocity--the movement of the brush head in your mouth-through a combination of high frequency and high amplitude bristle motions. These motions create dynamic cleaning action that drives fluids deep into the tight spaces between your teeth and along the gum line, which results in a cleaner, healthier mouth. It comprises of contoured brush head to fit the natural shape of your teeth, creating a larger brushing surface on the brush head. Bristles are placed at precise angles to maximize coverage. Finally, it uses extremely soft bristles that are rounded at the top by a diamond grinding wheel, to create a safe and gentle brush head that effectively delivers a

Guides you to follow dental recommendations Quadpacer interval timer encourages thorough brushing Two-minute timer helps ensure recommended brushing time
  26. 26. Recent advances in Powered Toothbrush using Oscillating and Rotatory Technology  Regarding oscillating and rotatory technology Oral B is the forerunner in developing advanced toothbrushes. There are two main product line by Oral B i.e., Professional and Deep sweep. Features of Professional:  deep-cleaning, oscillating bristles cup each tooth to get in hard-to-reach areas  Pressure sensor alerts you when you're brushing too hard  Bristle tips have been rounded to be gentle while reducing plaque and helping to prevent
  27. 27. Features of Deep Sweep”  the efficacy of Oral-B Power brushing combined with the familiarity of a manual brush in look and technique  Unique bristles attack plaque and are gentle on teeth and gums  Triple cleaning action bristles clean hard-toreach-areas New brush head designs and filament technology have also been introduced, such as coextruded bifilaments that replaced crimped filaments to reduce axial stiffness and increase approximal penetration. In 2005, the Oral-B Triumph was developed combining the oscillating-rotating plus pulsation technology with Smart technology in the handle.
  28. 28. New brush head designs and filament technology have also been introduced, such as coextruded bifilaments that replaced crimped filaments to reduce axial stiffness and increase approximal penetration.  In 2005, the Oral-B Triumph was developed combining the oscillatingrotating plus pulsation technology with Smart technology in the handle. 
  29. 29. Features of Oral B Triumph This onboard computer provides feedback to the patient regarding brushing time, brushing mode, battery charge status, & brush head replacement. Two unique brush head designs were introduced with this model.  One has flexible MicroPulse™ bristles to enhance removal of plaque biofilm while the other has a polishing cup to facilitate stain removal. 
  30. 30.  Recently, further enhancements to the Triumph were revealed. A chip was added to the handle giving it the ability to send information wirelessly to a remote display, allowing patients to easily and continuously view brushing feedback.
  31. 31. • Timers - Research shows patients typically spend about forty-six seconds brushingtheirteeth, less than half the time recommended by dental professionals.17 To help patients meet the desired time, some models have a two-minute timer. In addition, many power toothbrushes are equipped with a professional timer that elicits a sound or vibration every thirty seconds. This signals the patient to move to the next quadrant to ensure more thorough plaque removal across the entire dentition. 
  32. 32. Pressure Indicator - In addition to providing feedback on brushing time, some power toothbrushes have pressure indicators. This feature provides reassurance patients will follow good brushing technique by alerting them if too much pressure is applied. Research shows patients actually use less pressure with a power brush than a manual brush.18 
  33. 33. Brushing Modes - Some power toothbrushes allow patients to customize their brushing mode. Examples of modes on various toothbrushes include clean, soft, massage, or polish. Patients can personalize their brushing experience based on their oral health needs and personal preferences.
  34. 34. Electric toothbrushes are both rechargeable and non rechargeable. Advances in power management has also been introduced in modern toothbrushes Beside the basic technology, advances in brush head is a key factor. Different type of brush heads for Oral B products areas follows.
  35. 35. The new Oral-B Triumph with SmartGuide, an oscillating-rotating pulsating brush, is equipped with the features listed above, but it also offers a unique remote display technology (Figure 1.) The display can be placed on the counter, or anywhere within 10-15 feet of the patient, so the two-minute timer, brushing mode, and quadrant timer can be easily viewed during brushing. In addition, it also has a visual pressure signal that lights up if too much pressure should be applied, at which time pulsations are interrupted. This is the first power toothbrush that allows patients to visually follow feedback mechanisms continuously during brushing.
