- Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 9, 1908.

Application filed June 5, i986. Serial No. 320,255.

To all whom it may concern:

I Be it known that i, EUGEN Knzznn, physiclan, a subject of the King of Saxony, and resident oi Georgsplatz 2, Dresden, Kingdom of Saxony, German Empire, have invented a new and useful Brush for Cleaning Artificial Sets or Teeth, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a brush for cleaning artificial sets of teeth and consists more particularly in providing a brush at either end oi a curved or'otherwise shaped handle, the brushes being of different shapes so that the protruding parts of the artificial teeth such as the gum or crowns and the recesses and hidden parts including the clasps and hooks, may be readily cleaned.

Great lack of cleanliness has been noted up to now with regard to artificial teeth on the part of the patients, and even those who did try their utmost to keep the artificial teeth cleaniailed, as they had no means to help them to thoroughly succeed in cleaning them and saving their remaining real teeth from decaying in those parts where the hooks oi the artificial teeth were fixed on to them.

in the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is aside view of the brush, and Fig. 2 is a sec- $5 011 paken in the plane "of the line Ar-B of Now it have succeeded in producing a brush which-will overcome all difiicul'ties and enable the user to absolutely keep his artificial 1 teeth clean and save his remaining real teeth.

ties and 'more d The handle part c of the brush has a handy curved shape and is made of any desirable material, preferably celluloid, and it is developed at one end into a plate-like extension. The bristles of the brush 1) at this end of the handle are longer at the rim ofthe brush as well as at the pointed end of the same than in the middle part of the surface, thus g1v1ng the brush the appearance of a hoot and formlng a shallow cavity in the actmg surface of the brush, which cavity tapers ofi to nothing at the point of the brush. To the other end ofthe handle there is fixed a s 1ral brush 0 to pass'through the small cavie icate parts of the artificial sets of teethfsuch as the hooks and clasps,

' face of the brush, and

f the bristles of this spiral brush being so arranged that they become shorter towards the point of the brush and thus also harder and more effective. The larger brush is so shaped and the bristles are of such stiffness that the artificial gum-side and teeth will easily be cleaned by means of the concave shaped surthe cavities and re cesses occurring particularly in artificial gum substitute can be kept clean by means of the protruding point of the brush. The spiral shaped pointed brush a at the other end of the handle is particularly adapted to easily and thoroughly clean and disinfect the hookshaped recesses, clasps and hooks, which are all of a more delicate description. The bristles of this latter brush are fixed in a well known manner between two wires, which are wound round each other, the bristles surrounding these wires vertically in a spiral line and the open ends of the wires being covered with a knob, button or the like for safetys sake and also in order to prevent the wire from -untwisting. The other ends of the wires are fixed into or onto the end of the handle in any well known manner A cleaning brush constructed, formed and arranged according to this invention combines the great advantage of-a superb eiiiciency to clean the artificial teeth, as well as of being exceedingly handy.

What I claim is:

In an article of the character described, a handlehaving a fiat hoof-shaped brush at one end thereof comprising a plate-like extension of the handle and bristles longer at the rim and outer pointed end of the brush than in the center and rear end thereof, forming a shallow cavity in the acting surface of the brush tapering oii to nothing'at the point of the brush.

In testimony, that I claim the foregomg as my invention, 1 have signed my name in resence of two witnesses, this 23rd day of May, 1906.
