Abstract

A dental care unit (50) comprises a tooth brushing head (2) mounted by a capping piece (3) on a hollow handle (51) with a thread (20) at one end. The tooth brushing head (2) has a shank (6) which engages a plug mounted within the capping piece (3) which has a threaded bore. A pin (9) mounted on the plug projects through a longitudinal slot (10) in the capping piece (3) to form stops for movement of the plug (7) within the bore. For storage, the tooth brushing head (2) is inserted into the hollow handle (51) and the threads (20) engage the threaded bore. To use the dental care unit the tooth brushing head (2) is withdrawn and the capping piece (3) reversed and its other end screwed onto the hollow handle (51). The handle (51) contains a sanitising agent such as a mouth rinse which kills bacteria on the brushing head (2) in the storage position. The dental care unit may include a dental floss dispenser.
