Dyson Creating Toothbrush with Water Jets to Improve Dental Hygiene

After revolutionising the design of vacuum cleaners, hair-dryers and standing fans, Dyson could now be looking to conquer the dental hygiene market. The British tech company has filed patents for a new electric toothbrush with built-in water jets capable of blasting away food debris from between your teeth, potentially doing away with the need to floss entirely.

The toothbrush – or “dental cleaning appliance” as it is described in the patent – contains a small reservoir at the base of the brush head that can be filled with water and then pumped out in thin jets of water to dislodge matter from between teeth. According to the London Evening Standard, the toothbrush could also be used without the cleaning bristles as a high-powered water flosser.
