The GUM® Micro Tip® toothbrush was developed in collaboration with dental professionals to create a complete brushing experience.
First, the bristles have two distinctly different features using the latest manufacturing technologies:
- "Micro-feathering” splits each bristle filament into two-to-seven very fine endings that create up to 70% more contact area that enables soft and very gentle cleaning over a broader area.
- Regular-shaped tapered bristles are narrow at the tip to reach deeper below the gum line and in the hard-to-reach spaces between the teeth and have a textured surface to disrupt dental plaque and increase cleaning power.
Second, the head of the brush combines a Dome Trim® design with an interdental-cut bristle trim for the inside rows to create a unique configuration that:
- specifically enables the bristles to reach under the gumline at the 45-degree angle recommended and used by most dental professionals, and
- aligns with the overall tooth contours enabling the longer bristles to reach into the interdental spaces while shorter bristles clean the curvature of each tooth.
