head 0 backing; fsliowing' the'tnon of *the ha ndle aevn l win dw ft amibe 5 ner shown in Fig. 11, the'head i's flexed down.-

, wardly, bringing; the "tips of the prongs; into in cleaning the cracks between adjacent front 1 teeth, applying the brush vertically to the teeth.

The A head above described, as well asxthe C head to be later described, is useful when permanently mounted on any ordinary'handle. But to enlarge the capacity and usefulness of the brush, 1 preferably associate it with a removable handle such'ias that shown in ,Ii'ig. ;2, thev same comprising a handlepr'oper 26 and a longitudinally curved tenon 2] continuous with one end of the handle 26 and adapted to enter a longitudinal socket such as the socket 28 formed the mounting or backing of head A. -By refer ence to Fig. 7, it will be observed that the socket 28 of the unflexed head is straight butis inclined downwardly and forwardly from its neck endrel-g -atively to a straight line connecting the bases of the front and rear prongs. It will also be ob.- served that the, tips of thewprongs 2| lie in a concave plane. Now,,when;the"tenon of the hen-.- die 16 is inserted into'the socket of head A'g'as shown inFig. 3, the, head is so flexed that the tips of the prongs lie in aiiatfor horizontal plane.

But when thehandle i's inverted and-theri'ineserted into thesarne socket "in the manner shown in Fig. '4}. the, head is flexed in the re ye rse' direction and the tips of the prongs lie in a concave plane more pronounced than=the concave plane oi theqhead when the latter is s parat'ed froin thejfiindle. if V t ,F gs w. 11, and 12 show the C head'and its apara'tea from the handle, the tips ofits prongs lie in a slightly convex plane, as shown in Fig: 10, landithe' longitudinal socket Q8 of the unfiexed head is inclined upwardly and forwardly from its neck end relatively to astraightjline'connecting the bases of the front and rear prongs. f

When the handle tenonis inserted in'the man- 'a flat, horizontafplaneyand whenthe handle iis inverted and its teno'nin'slerted," thehead is flexed upwardly and its forward portion" is prongs into a downwardly and:forwardly'pitched lated in ,sizeto thesockets ,of the heads that it thrown downwardly,- bringing the" tips'of the convex'plane, sirnulatingwh'at is known as the Dr. West" type of brush head; Theform shown in Fig 4 presents what is known asthe .Pro-' phylactic"- type of headfwhile the*forms shown in Figs: 3 and 11 presentwh'at 115 known as the Dentists-type of. head. i

It will thusb'eseen that the invention, when employing onlya single head, Iaifords tWOydif-r ferent types or styles of-headbymerelyinvert- 'ing the handle relatively to the: head.. And where 'a plurality "of specifically diflerent heads,

, such 85 heads A and C, are; associated with. a "single handle a-"larger varietyof styles of head is obtainable. AwThertenon 21 ofthe handle 26 maybeso rewill have a sufiiciently tight 1 frictional engage-.- ,ment to insure thecoopera tionlof the he'adhnd handle when using? .the' brush; but,'.' todnsure against the handle pullingout durlng-the use of the brush, I preferably provide a yieldable' i This 1551mm F s-find wherein, he s d mi wall of the' rece'ss'ofthe head is pro- 'yidedfwithan integral button? 2!, and the tenon "21-is'split'longitudinallyas shown at 3| ands-near its freevend is formed with opposed notches 3| which, under a relative inward thrust of the,

handle and head, snap over and grip the button 29,,the engagement being eflected partly by the stretching of the side walls of the recess and partly by the compression of the button. This insures against separation 'of the handle and head whenthe brush is-being used, but permits a ready'separation of said .parts to'change the 'forrn'.of the brush or for cleaning and sterilizing the parts.

The handle may, of course, be formed of any suitable or adaptable material, but 1 preferably use therefore, material known under the trade "name Baltic, which consists of a semi-hard rubber fiber mixture thatwill stand a boiling temperature substantially above that required for ordinary sterilizing purposes.

While I have herein shown and described practical and preferred embodiments ofthe principle ofthe invention, Ido'not limit the latter to the speciflcyforms and materials hereinabove speci-' fied but reserve. all 'such variations, modifica- .'tions and" mechanical equivalents a'sifall within thespirit and purview, "of the claims.
