Title (EN) DENTAL FLOSS HOLDER WITH TOOTHPICK
(FR) SUPPORT DE SOIE DENTAIRE À CURE-DENT
Abstract:
(EN) A floss pick (10, 110, 210, 310, 410) including a body (12, 112, 412, 512) with a handle (14, 114, 314, 414, 514) and a head (16, 116, 316, 416, 516) having a length of floss (28, 128, 228, 328, 428, 528) therein. The body and/or handle defines an aperture with a toothpick member (30, 130, 230, 330, 470, 570) disposed therein. The toothpick member (470, 570) is connected to the handle (414), (514) by first (482, 484) and second (582, 584) bridge members. In a first instance, the bridge members (482, 484) are broken to detach the toothpick member (470). In a second instance, the bridge members (582, 584) are twisted to pivot the toothpick member (570) from a non-use position to a use position where it is disposed at an angle relative to the body (512). The toothpick member (570) is pivoted by engaging a terminal end thereof with an index finger of the hand in which the body (512) is held. The angle of the toothpick member (570) relative to the body (512) is adjusted using the index finger to permit picking of the teeth in any region of the user's mouth without changing hands.
(FR) L'invention concerne un bâtonnet de soie dentaire (10, 110, 210, 310, 410) qui comprend un corps (12, 112, 412, 512) ayant un manche (14, 114, 314, 414, 514) et une tête (16, 116, 316, 416, 516) dans laquelle se trouve une longueur de soie dentaire (28, 128, 228, 328, 428, 528). Le corps et/ou le manche définissent une ouverture dans laquelle est disposé un élément cure-dent (30, 130, 230, 330, 470, 570). L'élément cure-dent (470, 570) est relié au manche (414), (514) par des premier (482, 484) et second (582, 584) éléments de pont. Dans un premier exemple, les éléments de pont (482, 484) sont rompus pour détacher l'élément cure-dent (470). Dans un second exemple, les éléments de pont (582, 584) sont tordus pour faire pivoter l'élément cure-dent (570) d'une position de non utilisation à une position d'utilisation où il est disposé suivant un angle par rapport au corps (512). On fait pivoter l'élément cure-dent (570) en engageant une extrémité terminale de celui-ci avec l'index de la main dans laquelle le corps (512) est maintenu. L'angle de l'élément cure-dent (570) par rapport au corps (512) est ajusté à l'aide de l'index pour permettre le curage des dents dans toute région de la bouche de l'utilisateur sans changer de main.
