Abstract:
(EN) A toothbrush (1) has a cleaning member (3) equipped with a drivable bristle holder (20) for holding main bristles (21) and with a drivable interdental bristle holder (26) for holding interdental bristles (27), the interdental bristle holder (26) being coupled to a drive element (29) with the aid of a coupling element (39) and, of the coupling element (39) and the drive element (29) at least the coupling element (39) is at least partly elastically deformable parallel to the longitudinal bristle direction (28) of the interdental bristles (27) held by the interdental bristle holder (26).
(FR) L'invention concerne une brosse à dents (1) à élément de nettoyage (3) équipé d'un support de soies pouvant être entraîné (20) qui porte des soies principales (21) et équipé d'un support de soies interdentaires pouvant être entraîné (26) qui porte des soies interdentaires (27). Ce dernier support (26) est couplé à un mécanisme d'entraînement (29) via un élément de couplage (39). De cet élément de couplage (39) et de l'élément d'entraînement (29), au moins l'élément de couplage (39) se prête au moins en partie à une déformation élastique parallèlement au sens longitudinal (28) des soies interdentaires (27) reposant sur le support de soies interdentaires (26).
