claims appended hereunto. Figures 4, 5 and 6 show modifications of my In the drawing wherein is shown the principal invention. In Figure 4 the alternate bristle and form, and several modifications of my invenbrush members are shown as extending comtion;-- pletely across the face of the tooth brush, where- Figure 1 is-a side elevatlmlef atooth brush of as in Figures 1 and 2, these are arranged in two the refillable type, showing the preferred arrangerows. Figure 5 shows the bristle and brush 50 ment of bristles and rubber members; members arranged in more than two spaced rows.- Figure 2 is a plan view of the same; Figure 6 shows the rows of bristles and tufts in :Figure 3 is a detail section showing the bristle relatively staggered relationship. Attention is tuft and rubber members; directed to the fact that in my present invention Figure 4 is amodification showing the alternate the essential features are that the bristle tufts 55.

rise above the ends of the rubber members, and the bristles flare out between the interproximal spaces between the wedge shaped rubber members to substantially fill said spaces, whereas the beveled ends of the bristle members above the rubber members serving to thoroughly cleanse the spaces between the teeth, while the squeegee efiect of the rubber members is to polish and cleanse the plane surfaces of the teeth. The maximum effect is in the combination of the two cleansing elements in a unitary brush.

In practice the brush is operated in the usual way and has all of the advantages herein attributed to it, but since certain changes may be made in form and arrangement it is again pointed out that such changes are permissible provided they fall within the scope of What :is claimed.

I claim;
