Abstract

The invention relates to a toothbrush for the complete cleaning of the mouth, through incorporating a tongue-cleaner at the back of the toothbrush head or in any other part of the handle; the incorporation of a part made of any rubber component and placed longitudinally between the bristles may clean and massage the gums; and a toothbrush head which can be dismounted from the handle so that it can be discarded. The object of this invention is that, when brushing the teeth, the user may, with the same instrument and in a simple way, clean completely the tongue thereby eliminating one of the main causes of halitosis and various bucco-pharyngeal infections, and at the same time clean and massage the gums in order to strengthen them and to avoid loss of the jawbone.

Bacterial and good maintenance requires

strengthening and irrigation by a suitable

premature loss of teeth.

In addition to these drawbacks, toothbrushes that

sold in the market have the disadvantage of having a
