Abstract

An oral care device for providing a user the flexibility to play and record any type of music or sound they prefer on the oral care device in use. The oral care device may be any dental device that is capable of providing oral hygiene to a user of the device such as, e.g., a toothbrush.

Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    The present invention relates to an oral care device having the ability to record, playback and re-record musical or other sound media for providing a user the flexibility to play any type of sound media they prefer. The oral care device can be used with various types of media recording devices that are capable of downloading, recording, storing and playing back sound media from different sources such as, i.e., a compact disc, cassette, computer or MP3 player.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    It is well known that toothbrushes have been provided with the ability to play musical sounds or songs to a to allow the user to listen while brushing their teeth. A variety of musical toothbrushes have been developed to encourage better brushing practice. Most commonly, the musical toothbrushes have a sound generating device either contained in the handle portion of the toothbrush or attached to the outside of the handle. The sound generating device contained within or attached to a toothbrush handle will play a set sound or musical note/song. Examples of these musical toothbrushes are disclosed in U.S. patent application Publication 2004/000017 to Kumagai, discloses a toothbrush assembly with a sound generating function, which generates sound by the tooth-brushing movement of the user. U.S. Pat. No. 5,572,762 to Scheiner, discloses a toothbrush with a sound generator activated by a switch on the handle of the toothbrush. U.S. Pat. No. 6,202,245 to Khodadadi, discloses a musical toothbrush with a digital sound generator disposed within the toothbrush's handle.
  • [0003]
    Although these musical and/or sound generating toothbrushes provide sounds varying from music to beeps or brushing instructions, the aforementioned toothbrushes do not allow the user to download or record, store, and playback music from different sources such as, i.e., a compact disc, cassette, computer, or MP3 player. This leads to the toothbrushes losing their allure over time and therefore lose efficacy in solving the problem of better brushing practice.
  • [0004]
    In this regard, the oral care device according to the present invention significantly overcomes the restrictions of the prior musical toothbrushes mentioned above, and consequently provides the user with variety in the type of music he or she would like to listen to while brushing their teeth. Furthermore, the user of the present invention would also have the ability to download or record, store and playback music from various media sources an unlimited amount of times.
  • [0005]
    Therefore, there is a continuing need for a musical toothbrush that has the ability to record, re-record and playback music from various media sources to provide the user with a variety of musical types during the user's brushing regimen.
