Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To deform bristles with less deflection and with high rigidity in rolling brushing and to put them between teeth by making the rigidity of the bristles in the same direction as the axial line of a handle be lower than the one in the direction orthogonally crossing the axial line.
SOLUTION: The bristles 2 are formed integrally with a base 4 by molding by a high molecular compound such as silicon rubber for instance. The bristles 2 are composed by forming the shape so as to turn a cross section roughly to a rectangle, to a planar shape for instance, and making the rigidity in the same direction as the axial line of the handle 3 be lower than the one in the direction orthogonally crossing the axial line. The handle 3 is formed by being provided with the base 4 integrally formed with the handle 3 for instance on one end and an attachment part 5 which is an attachment part to a motor-driven toothbrush on the other end part. In bus brushing at the time of driving in the same direction as the axial line of the handle 3, the bristles 2 are flexibly deformed, the surface of a long length with a large contact area is abutted to a tooth surface and the plaque of the tooth surface is removed. In the rolling brushing at the time of the driving in the direction orthogonally crossing the axial line, the bristles are deformed with less deflection and with the high regidity and enter between the teeth and the plaque or the like between the teeth is efficiently brushed.

【発明の詳細な説明】 DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

【0001】 [0001]

【発明の属する技術分野】本発明は、歯ブラシで、特に電動歯ブラシにて歯垢等を除去するに最適なブリッスルを有する歯ブラシに関する。 The present invention relates to the toothbrush, to a toothbrush having an optimum bristle to remove dental plaque or the like in particular electric toothbrush.

【0002】 [0002]

【従来の技術】最近、小型モータの回転を往復動に変え、柄の軸線と同一方向あるいは柄の軸線と直交する方向に往復動させて柄の端部に設けたブリッスルにて歯磨きを行う、図5に示す電動歯ブラシが普及しつつある。 Recently, changing the rotation of the small motor to the reciprocating, back and forth movement in a direction perpendicular to the axes of the same direction or in the handle of the handle performs brushing by bristles provided at an end portion of the handle, electric toothbrush of FIG. 5 is spreading.
この電動歯ブラシのブリッスルは、手動で磨く歯ブラシのものと同一で、直径が略0.2mmのブリッスル素体を数10本束ねて基台に植毛して形成されている。 Bristles of the electric toothbrush, the same as those of the toothbrush to brush manually, and is formed by flocking the base by bundling several ten bristles body of substantially 0.2mm in diameter. 具体的には、図6に示すように、ポリアミド樹脂材料などの押し出し加工により成形された略円柱状の糸片のブリッスル素体を束ね、柄3と一体に形成された基台4の植毛用下穴4aに、止め具4bにより係止されて成る。 Specifically, as shown in FIG. 6, bundled bristles body of substantially cylindrical yarns piece molded by extrusion of polyamide resin material, for flocking handle 3 and a base 4 which is formed integrally under the hole 4a, consisting locked by stop 4b. このブリッスル2を有する歯ブラシ1は、取付部5の穴5a Toothbrush 1 having the bristles 2, the hole 5a of the mounting portion 5
にて電動歯ブラシ本体6の駆動部6aに取り付けられ駆動される。 Attached to the driving unit 6a of the electric toothbrush handle portion 6 is driven in.

【0003】一般に、電動歯ブラシは、図7に矢印A、 [0003] In general, electric toothbrush, the arrow A in Figure 7,
Bで示す、(a)の柄の軸線と同一方向の大略3mmの往復動による磨き(以下、バス磨きと称す)と、(b) Shown by B, and polished by approximately 3mm reciprocation of the handle axis in the same direction (a) (hereinafter referred to as bass brushing), (b)
の軸線と直交する方向の往復動すなわち、大略30度の往復ローリング運動による磨き(以下、ローリング磨きと称す)と、を適宜組み合わせて短時間にて確実に歯垢等を落とすものである。 Reciprocating i.e. in a direction orthogonal to the axis, polished by the reciprocating rolling motion of approximately 30 degrees (hereinafter, referred to as rolling brushing) and is intended to ensure dropping the plaque or the like in a short time by combining appropriate. しかるに、このバス磨きとローリング磨きとの両往復動において、前記ブリッスルは、 However, in both the reciprocation of this bass brushing and rolling brushing, the bristle,
ローリング磨きの場合の先端の追従は僅かなものとなる。 Follow-up of the tip of the case of rolling brushing becomes insignificant. 従って、歯垢除去の作用効果が十分に発揮されなかったり、使用感覚においても、十分に磨いた感じを使用者に与えなかったりすることなどがあった。 Therefore, may not be operational effects can sufficiently exhibit of plaque removal, even in the use feeling, there is such that you may not give a feeling of well-polished to the user. その結果、 as a result,
歯磨きをしても歯垢が確実に落ちなかったり、あるいは、必要以上の力にてブリッスルを歯の表面に押し当てて使用されたりして使用者の歯茎を痛めることなどがあった。 Or they did not fall to ensure that plaque even if the toothpaste, or, there has been such that the bristles at more than necessary force or is used in pressed against the surface of the tooth damage the gums of the user.

【0004】 [0004]

【発明が解決しようとする課題】ところで、手動で歯を磨く場合には、ブリッスルによる歯の表面への押圧を、 [0007] By the way, in case you manually brushing the teeth, the pressure on the surface of the tooth by the bristles,
僅かずつ変化させながら歯ブラシを往復動させることにより、歯垢を確実に落とすことができる。 By reciprocating the toothbrush while changing little by little, it can be dropped surely plaque. しかるに、電動歯ブラシで歯を磨く場合、歯茎を痛めない為にも、ブリッスルにより歯の表面を押圧する力は一定にて磨くのが好ましいと言える。 However, when brushing teeth with the electric toothbrush, in order not to damage the gums, the force to press the surface of the tooth by bristles can be said preferable to polish at a constant. しかし、上記のブリッスルを使用した歯ブラシにおいては、磨きの方向によってブリッスルにより異なる押圧を作用をさせることは不可能である。 However, in the toothbrush using the above bristles, it is not possible to the action of different pressed by bristle depending on the direction of the polish. 従って、電動歯ブラシのローリング磨きにおいて歯垢除去効果を高めるためには、小型モータによる軸の往復動の力がブリッスルの先端へより強く作用するブリッスルが必要と考えるに至った本発明は、上記事由に鑑みてなしたもので、その目的とするところは、電動歯ブラシにおいて、ブリッスルによる歯垢除去効果の高い歯ブラシを提供することにある。 Accordingly, the present invention in order to enhance the plaque removing effect in rolling brushing of the electric toothbrush, the force of the reciprocating movement of the shaft by a small motor came to consider necessary bristles to act more strongly to the tip of the bristles, the grounds was made in view of the, it is an object of the electric toothbrush is to provide a high plaque removing effect by the bristles the toothbrush.

【0005】 [0005]

【課題を解決するための手段】上記目的を達成するために、請求項1記載の歯ブラシは、柄の端部の基台と一体に形成されたブリッスルを有する歯ブラシにおいて、前記ブリッスルは、柄の軸線と同一方向の剛性を軸線と直交する方向より低くして成ることとしている。 To achieve the above object of the Invention The toothbrush of claim 1, wherein, in the toothbrush having bristles formed on the base and integral with an end of the handle, the bristle, handle the axis and rigidity in the same direction is set to be comprised by less than a direction perpendicular to the axis. これにより、ブリッスルに加わる負荷が、柄の軸線と直交する方向のときは高い剛性にてブリッスルが変形するものとなる。 Thus, the load on the bristles, and that the bristle is deformed at a high rigidity when the direction perpendicular to the axis of the handle.

【0006】また、請求項2記載の歯ブラシは、請求項1記載のブリッスルは、断面が大略長方形の平板状であることとしている。 Further, the toothbrush of claim 2 wherein the bristles of claim 1 is directed to that section is generally rectangular flat plate. これにより、柄の軸線と同一方向の駆動のときにブリッスルの長尺の面が歯面に当接する。 Thus, the surface of the long bristles when the drive axis in the same direction of the handle abuts against the tooth surface.

【0007】また、請求項3記載の歯ブラシは、請求項2記載のブリッスルは、平板上面にその上面から離れる方向に断面が小さくなる1または2以上の突状部を一体に有することとしている。 Further, the toothbrush of claim 3, wherein the bristles of claim 2 is directed to be integrally having one or more projecting parts section becomes smaller in a direction away from the upper surface to the flat top surface. これにより、柄の軸線と直交する方向の駆動のときにブリッスルの突状部が歯間の奥に的確に入り込む。 Accordingly, the protruding portion of the bristles penetrate effectively to the back between the teeth when the direction of the drive perpendicular to the axis of the handle.

【0008】また、請求項4記載の歯ブラシは、請求項3記載のブリッスルは、突状部の周壁に1または2以上の薄肉突状部を一体に有することとしている。 Further, the toothbrush of claim 4, wherein the bristles of the third aspect, is set to be integrally having one or more thin projecting portion on the peripheral wall of the projecting portion. これにより、柄の軸線と直交する方向の駆動のときにブリッスルの薄肉突状部が歯間の歯の側面に当接して突状部が歯間の奥に入り込む。 Thus, the protrusion enters the deep interdental thin projecting portion of the bristles when the direction of the drive perpendicular to the axis of the handle is in contact with the side face of the teeth between the teeth.

【0009】 [0009]

【発明の実施の形態】以下、本発明の第1の実施形態を図1に基づいて説明する。 BEST MODE FOR CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION Hereinafter, will be explained based on the first embodiment of the present invention in FIG. 図1の(a)は平面図、 (A) is a plan view of FIG. 1,
