This soft bamboo toothbrush gently cleans the teeth and gums, whilst offering an eco-friendly dental hygiene alternative to a conventional plastic toothbrush. It features a small head with tapered bristles (thinner ends) for better cleaning between teeth and gums.
The handle is made from bamboo (100% biodegradable) while the bristles is made from PBT (Poly Butylene Terephthalate) filament, and infused with bamboo charcoal which naturally has antibacterial and antifungal properties.
- Durable bristles won’t fray easily like standard toothbrushes.
- Tapered bristles cleans the gap between your teeth and gums
- Small head reach into all parts of the mouth
- Soft textured bristles gently massages gums and prevent tooth abrasion
- Water-resistant bamboo surface prevents the growth of microbes.
- Less water absorbent bristles is less likely to harbour the growth of germs
- Prevents dental diseases and protect gums
- Ergonomically designed handle - comfortable to hold.
- 100% biodegradable handle
- BPA free handle and bristles.
The bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface which makes it water resistance. Bamboo is compostable, it is also naturally antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal. The natural bamboo toothbrush handle has an ergonomic design crafted for easy grip while brushing.
Toothbrush Head & Bristles
Typical bristles of toothbrushes are made of nylon and generally made thicker to be longer lasting, but that can make the bristles quite harsh during use, unless the ends are rounded. Some standard toothbrushes have flat tips which makes it hard to reach between teeth where food residue and substances can accumulate. Despite some advantages of nylon-made filament such proper flexibility and softness, they are very water-absorbent and more easily deformed.
On the other hand, PBT absorb less water (harbour less germs), are more durable and longer lasting than nylon. The ends of the bristles are tapered resulting in a needle-shape - thus thinner and more flexible than nylon bristles. This enables better penetration between the teeth and around the gums.
In spite of individual beliefs that brushing with hard bristled toothbrush has a better cleansing action and plaque removal capability, dental hygienist very rarely recommend hard-bristled toothbrush due to its potential adverse effects – irrespective of proper brushing technique.
Bristle hardness is a major predisposing factors for gingival recession (receding gums) that causes irreversible loss of tooth structure. Hard bristled toothbrushes can damage the gums, promote bleeding and open the way for bacterial penetration, resulting in tooth decay and gum disease.
With modern technology, pure bamboo and other plant-based bristles in their pure form may prove counterproductive because they would rot in a matter of days, thereby generating unnecessary waste.
Likewise, if we replace our toothbrushes every three months as required by dentist, about 23 billion plastics toothbrushes would end up in the waste stream annually. Today’s viable option for a plastic-free brush is animal hair bristle. So we believe any alternative that reduces the total amount of waste is a step in the right direction.
Reducing your Environmental Footprint
Once you’re finished with your toothbrush, it is recommended to pull out the bristles from the bamboo handle using pliers before disposal. Then the biodegradable handle can be used for home or commercial composting while the bristles can be recycled with other plastics.
