If you’ve ever been on the receiving end of a toothpick, you know that it’s always a pain.
Now, a team of scientists have developed a new type of toothbrush that can absorb the bite of any molar, thus allowing you to treat your own tooth as a new tooth, even if you don’t need to.
The toothbrush, called the toothworm, is a new kind of brush that can be used for brushing teeth as well as cutting them open.
The toothbrush is the work of the research group at the University of California, Los Angeles, which first developed a similar toothbrush called the mameluke, but that was too small to be used as a dental aid.
The new toothbrush has a diameter of just 1.3 millimeters (0.2 inches), which is smaller than a human tooth, making it easier for a human to grip.
The team, led by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill researcher David A. O’Connor, said the toothbrush’s teeth are coated with a hard-shelled, mineral-containing protein called metalloproteinase I. These proteins help protect the tooth and prevent it from being punctured.
O’Connor says the tooth brush has a “narrow” bristly-curved shape.
It’s the same shape as a toothbrush used to treat dental conditions such as gum disease and cavities.
The team says the bristles are made of a mineral-rich material that helps absorb the biting force of the tooth.
The researchers are also developing a device that could be used to create a vacuum that would suck the toothpaste from the tooth, which could be a huge improvement over other toothpaste solutions.
The device could also be used in the field to clean teeth, and it’s hoped that it will soon be able to be applied to other types of soft tissue as well.
This could make the toothless toothbrush one of the most widely used dental aids around, and the team says they are already working on ways to improve its effectiveness.Ouch!
