Dyson has recently filed a patent application for an electric toothbrush that would clean users’ teeth using a jet of water.
The patent details a “dental cleaning appliance” comprising a handle and a “fluid delivery system”.
The fluid delivery system features a nozzle and a “moveable fluid conduit”, which would work by firing a series of bursts of fluid against the user’s teeth to remove dental debris and treat the surface of the teeth.
It remains to be seen whether this patent becomes a product available to consumers.
