Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD
  • [0001]
    The present invention relates to a portable toothbrush, and more particularly, to a portable toothbrush having a cleaning solution capable of cleaning the mouth, toothbrush bristles, and an interdental brush and capable of facilitating the carrying of an interdental cleaning member such as an interdental toothbrush or a dental floss.
  • BACKGROUND ART
  • [0002]
    Since bacteria over hundreds of species are lived in man's mouth, numerous bacteria reproduce even in the toothbrush thereof for cleaning the tooth. Accordingly, it is necessary to wash and dry the toothbrush well for preventing the propagation of the bacteria after toothbrushing and wash the toothbrush for sterilization before toothbrushing.
  • [0003]
    In other words, it is preferable to completely dry the toothbrush by rubbing the bristles with his thumb, washing it clean and then, placing it at the sunshiny and airy window after toothbrushing thereof.
  • [0004]
    Meanwhile, where it is far away from home like a travel or a business trip etc., since the toothbrush is not easily cleaned due to time and space constraints, numerous bacteria reproduce in the toothbrush thereof. In this state, when the user brushes his teeth, it can lead to health problems in terms of teeth and oral thereof.
  • [0005]
    In order to solve this problem, conventionally, it is necessary to separately equip a cleaning solution with the toothbrush. In this case, since it is inconvenient to separately equip a cleaning solution with the toothbrush, when the user brushes his teeth after eating out, there is difficult in completely ensuring the toothbrush and oral hygiene.
  • [0006]
    On the other hand, in the conventional toothbrush, it applies the toothpaste to a brush head to clean the teeth so as to remove food leftovers or plaques etc. existed on the teeth. However, in the conventional toothbrush, it is difficult to do a thorough cleaning of the teeth. Accordingly, the food leftovers or the plaques etc. exited between the teeth are removed by means of a dental floss or a specifically formulated interdental toothbrush, not the general toothbrush.
  • [0007]
    In the interdental toothbrush, a cone-shaped brush is fixed to an iron core, which is coupled to an end of the body of a bar shape. Here, the body is molded by a synthetic resin like the general toothbrush and the iron core is made of a nickel. Here, the surface of the core is coated on a resin material such as a nylon in consideration of the allege reaction.
  • [0008]
    In the conventional interdental toothbrush, in a state that the user holds the body thereof, the brush is repeatedly pushed and pulled toward the spaces between the teeth, so that the food leftovers or the plaques etc. existed in the spaces between the teeth are removed to maintain the dental health thereof.
  • [0009]
    However, although the conventional dental floss or the interdental toothbrush is used in parallel with the general toothbrush, since they are separately housed, the use thereof is very cumbersome. Also, since it is hard to secure a storage area thereof during a separate storage, there is a problem in a hygienic storage thereof.
  • [0010]
    “Interdental toothbrush having cleaning solution” (Korea Patent Registration No. 10-0468075, Patent Document 1) is disclosed as the conventional art. However, the conventional art, since the interdental toothbrush is small in volume, there is a problem in that the loss there is easy during travelling.

    Referring to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the portable toothbrush according to the present invention includes a toothbrush body 10 having a head portion 12 provided with a bristles 11 on one side thereof, and a body portion 14 integrally with the head portion 12 and provided with an coupling groove 13, which is formed on an inside thereof; and a storage member 20 coupled detachably to the coupling groove 13 of the body portion 14 and storing a cleaning solution therein.
  • [0057]
    At this time, an inner protrusion 15 is formed on an inner circumference of the coupling groove 13 of the body portion. Accordingly, it can prevent the storage member 20, which is inserted into and coupled to the coupling groove 13 of the body portion 14, from being easily separated from the coupling groove 13.
  • [0058]
    That is, when the storage member 20 is inserted into the coupling groove 13 to be coupled, since the inner protrusion 15 is caught in a coupling member 26 of the storage member 20, it can prevent the storage member 20 from being easily separated from the coupling groove 13 during toothbrushing thereof.
  • [0059]
    On the other hand, the storage member 20 includes a storage container 22 for storing the cleaning solution such as a cleansing agent for cleaning the teeth and the bristles 11 or a mouthwash for removing halitosis therein; a cap 25 seated on an upper end of the storage container 22; an opening and closing valve 27 coupled to and penetrated through the cap 25 in order that one side thereof is disposed on an inside of the storage container 22 and the other side thereof is disposed on an outside of the storage container 22 and having discharge holes 21 therein; the coupling member 26 for coupling the storage container 22 with the cap 25 so as to maintain the sealing thereof; an inflow pipe 28 formed on an lower portion of the other side of the opening and closing valve 27 so as to allow the cleaning solution stored in the storage container 22 to be delivered to the discharge hole 21; and a push button 24 coupled to the opening and closing valve 27 in an upper portion of the storage container 22 so as to operate the opening and closing of the opening and closing valve 27, the push button 24 being provided with a spray nozzle 23, which is formed on one side of the outer circumference thereof.

At this time, by means of the pressure, the cleaning solution stored in the storage container 22 is sprayed to the outside through a spray nozzle 23 via the inlet pipe 28 and the discharge hole 21.
  • [0061]
    In this case, if the pressed push button is returned, the opening and closing valve 27 is returned by means of the elastic restoring force of a spring 29 formed on the lower portion of the opening and closing valve 27 and then, the spray of the cleaning solution is stopped.
  • [0062]
    That is, the cleaning solution stored in the storage member 20 is sprayed to the outside through the spraying method.
  • [0063]
    It is preferred that the storage member 20 is made of a transparent material so as to allow the cleaning solution stored therein to be seen.
  • [0064]
    As described above, in the portable toothbrush according to the present invention, since the storage member is made of to transparent material so as to allow the cleaning solution stored therein to be seen and the storage member 20 is coupled detachably to the body portion 14, it facilitates the carrying thereof. Also, the cleaning solution stored in the storage member 20 is easily discharged by means of the spraying method before and after the toothbrush, so that it can clean the toothbrush bristles and the mouth, thereby enabling the hygienic rinsing of the mouth.
