Apex, NC, May 07, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Toof-inger Brush™, a reimagined toothbrush, creates healthier brushing practices and tackles the main causes of gum recession.
The unique handle of The Toof-inger Brush is designed to be held with just two or three fingers and is comfortably controlled while cleaning your teeth. By attacking both major aspects of unhealthy brushing, poor technique and too much pressure, this innovative toothbrush changes the way you brush your teeth.
This daily-use toothbrush is perfect for ages six and older. The shortened handle encourages a “pinch grip” which makes this brush ideal for elderly care, and for brushers with dexterity issues, such as rheumatoid arthritis. The toothbrush’s compact size also makes it a great travel brush.
Creator Steven Walther, a Green Beret and former Special Forces Medic, first recognized the need for a toothbrush with a modified-grip while serving on a combat deployment in Afghanistan. While running an oral health clinic there, Walther realized a recurring theme that would later have him invent The Toof-inger Brush. “Many people apply too much pressure while brushing, which causes damage to gums,” said Walther. “The Toof-Inger Brush changes the way we brush.”
Oral health professionals were introduced to The Toof-inger Brush in May 2013 at a North Carolina Dental Society Meeting. The brush has been receiving outstanding reviews ever since. “This ingenious idea will revolutionize the way we have thought about brushing,” said Dr. Kelly Viau, a dentist in Apex, N.C.
Dr. Christie Sanford, a Wake Forest, N.C. dentist, also believes the design of The Toof-inger Brush will bring about great improvements in oral health, “This is a brilliant recognition. The design of this innovative toothbrush corrects maladaptive brushing habits and fosters healthy practices.”
The Toof-inger Brush is available for purchase from amazon.com, through multiple online medical device distributors, and directly from the company website, toofingerbrush.com.
