Here’s more about the development of this toothbrush:

“For many years, American dentist George Collis felt that toothbrushes were difficult for his patients to use. The complicated ‘scrub and roll’ technique was challenging to teach to children, and many adults also failed to apply it properly. Drawing from his experiences trying to brush his elderly father’s teeth, who had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s at the time, Dr. Collis invented the first ever 3-sided curved bristle toothbrush…”
