  • Patent number: 10687609
    Abstract: An oral care implement having an arrangement of different types of cleaning elements. Specifically, in one embodiment the oral care implement includes a head and a plurality of tooth cleaning elements. The tooth cleaning elements include a plurality of inclined bristle tufts that are circumferentially arranged about a reference ring. The inclined bristle tufts extend from the head so as to converge towards a reference axis with increasing distance from the head. The tooth cleaning elements also include an elastomeric member extending from the head within the reference ring. The elastomeric member may be conical in shape and have an inclined outer surface. In some embodiments the elastomeric member may include two components that are separated by a gap, and a central cleaning element may be located within the gap.

  • Publication number: 20200187850
    Abstract: A system, instrumentality, and method for performing an oral care evaluation of a user via electrical impedance tomography (EIT). For example, a system may include an oral care device having a first member housing a first electrode. The first electrode may be configured to transmit a first signal through a gingiva of a user to cause an altered first signal. The oral care device may have a second member housing a second electrode. The second electrode may be configured to receive the altered first signal. The system may be configured to generate an electrical impedance tomography (EIT) profile of the gingiva of the user, for example, based on data indicative of the first signal and the altered first signal. An oral health characteristic of the user may be determined based on the EIT profile of the gingiva of the user.

  • Publication number: 20200188076
    Abstract: An oral care implement for dispensing an oral care agent includes a housing, reservoir therein containing an oral care fluid, and an electrical circuit comprising first and second electrodes connected to an onboard power source. Each electrode is in contact with the oral care fluid in the housing. An actuator, operably coupled to the power source, is configured to both selectively energize the circuit and activate dispensing of the oral care fluid. An electrical charge is applied to the oral care fluid by activating the actuator when dispensing the oral care fluid. When the fluid comprises a peroxide based tooth whitening agent, the dispensed fluid pH is increased by the electrical charge which improves the efficacy of the whitener. In one embodiment, the implement is a modular system including a powered base unit and one or more interchangeable cartridges each having a reservoir containing an oral care fluid.

  • Publication number: 20200189809
    Abstract: A container (100) includes a body (110) defining an internal volume and a first opening (112) that provides a path of fluid communication between the internal volume and an exterior of the body. A nozzle piece (120) is positioned at least partially within the opening in the body. The nozzle piece defines a second opening (126) that is smaller than the first opening in the body. A cap piece (130) is integral with the body. The cap piece is configured to pivot between an open position and a closed position via a hinge (132) that is positioned between the body and the cap piece. Fluid flow is permitted through the second opening in the nozzle piece when the cap piece is in the open position, and the cap piece prevents fluid flow through the second opening in the nozzle piece when the cap piece is in the closed position.
