Abstract

A combination toothbrush and tongue cleaner (1) comprises a handle (2) with a head (3) at one end thereof. The head has on one side thereof a multitude of toothbrush bristles (4) extending in a common general direction to define a toothbrush and on the side thereof opposite that from which the toothbrush bristles extend, a tongue cleaner (5). The tongue cleaner assumes the form of an abrasive surface extending over an area corresponding roughly to the area covered by the multitude of toothbrush bristles on the opposite side of the head. The tongue cleaner is preferably a multitude of bristles which are substantially shorter than the toothbrush bristles.
