  • Patent number: 9717324
    Abstract: A method for producing a toothbrush comprises providing a head, a neck portion, and a handle; providing a coupling element; and combining the neck portion to the handle by the coupling element so that an irreversible connection is formed. The individual parts of the toothbrush to be formed can be produced in parallel or successively, wherein some of the parts can be produced by injection molding. A toothbrush formed by the method comprises a head, a neck portion, and a handle; these elements can be produced as building blocks separately and may be connected to one another via a coupling element to form an inseparable connection.

  • Patent number: 9486066
    Abstract: A toothbrush comprises a head, a neck portion and a handle, wherein the neck portion and the handle portion are connected to one another via a coupling element. The connection is constructed as an inseparable connection, i.e., after being combined once, the neck portion and the handle cannot be separated without the brush being destroyed by such separation. A method for producing such a toothbrush may comprise the following steps: providing a head, a neck portion, a handle, and a coupling element, and combining the neck portion to the handle by the coupling element so that an irreversible connection is formed.

  • Patent number: 8099821
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a toothbrush. The invention relates in particular to a toothbrush filament having a filament body surrounding a matrix material in which grains are embedded, wherein the matrix material and the grains have a different resistance to etching so that by etching the matrix material and/or the grains a surface structure can be created on the filament body at least in the area of the tapering end section. According to one aspect of the present invention, grains having a shell structure with a grain shell, in which is encapsulated a grain core comprising a core material different from the shell material, have been embedded in the matrix material of the filament.
