Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19827009A1] The invention relates to a toothbrush comprising a handle, a head in the form of an elongated housing which is open on one side, a brush part removably inserted in said housing and having a support with bristles mounted thereon. On the rear side of the support, the inventive toothbrush has a projection penetrating in an opening located in the rear part of the housing. The support with said projection is composed of an elastic rubber material which enables elastic sealing against said housing and with its projection sealing against the opening. The brush part can be ejected from the housing by applying pressure on the projection through elastic deformation of said support. The bristles are fixed to the support by welding or injection.
