Abstract
(DE)
Eine Bürstenanordnung, die zur Verwendung bei einer Zahnbürste mit einem elektrischen Antrieb zur oszillierenden Bewegung der Bürstenanordnung bezüglich einer Bewegungsachse (43) vorgesehen ist, hat einen Borstenträger (41) und eine Vielzahl von an dem Borstenträger verankerten und von diesem abstehenden Borsten, die in Borstenbündeln (44, 45) gruppiert sind. Die Bürstenanordnung hat mit Abstand zur Bewegungsachse (43) angeordnete Borsten bzw. Borstenbündel (45), die in einem Neigungswinkel von beispielsweise ca. 6° in Richtung zur Bewegungsachse geneigt sind. Die Bürstenanordnung ist besonders zur Reinigung von Zahnzwischenraumbereichen und zur Entfernung von Zahnbelag geeignet und besonders vorteilhaft an Zahnbürsten einsetzbar, die sowohl eine Drehbewegung um die Bewegungsachse, als auch eine vibrierende Hubbewegung in Richtung der Bewegungsachse ermöglichen.
(EN)
The invention relates to a brush unit which is designed for use with a toothbrush provided with an electric drive serving to oscillate the brush unit in relation to an axis of movement (43). The brush unit comprises a brush support (41) and a plurality of bristles which are anchored in the support, protrude outwards from same and a grouped in bundles (44, 45). The brush unit in particular has bristles or bristle bundles (45) which are situated at a distance from the axis of movement (43) and inclined in relation to the axis of movement at an angle of inclination of, for example, approximately 6°. The brush unit is particularly suitable for cleaning interdental spaces and removing dental plaque. It can be used especially advantageously with toothbrushes which permit both a rotation about the axis of movement and a vibrating reciprocating movement in the direction of the axis of movement.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un ensemble brosse conçu pour être utilisé dans une brosse à dent comportant un entraînement électrique qui sert à animer l'ensemble brosse d'un mouvement oscillant par rapport à un axe de mouvement (43). Cet ensemble brosse présente un support de poils (41) et une pluralité de poils qui sont ancrés sur ce dernier, font saillie par rapport à ce dernier et sont regroupés sous la forme de faisceaux de poils (44, 45). Cet ensemble brosse présente des poils ou des faisceaux de poils (45) qui sont placés à distance de l'axe de mouvement (43) et sont inclinés selon un angle d'environ 6° en direction de l'axe de mouvement. Cet ensemble brosse est particulièrement approprié pour nettoyer les espaces interdentaires et pour éliminer la plaque dentaire. Il s'utilise de manière particulièrement avantageuse dans des brosses à dent permettant aussi bien un mouvement rotatif autour de l'axe de mouvement qu'un mouvement alternatif vibratoire en direction de l'axe de mouvement.
