Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19640852A1] The invention concerns a bristle (1) for a toothbrush, in particular for an electric toothbrush, the bristle being made from a plastics monofilament (2). The monofilament (2) has a non-circular cross-section, is rotated about its longitudinal axis, and is secured by the effect of chemical agents. In this way, the bristle (1) is provided with a three-dimensionally structured surface which improves the cleaning effect, in particular as concerns plaque-removal.
