Dentos Brush Head Materials
Dentos brush heads are made from the finest materials. The white shaft of the brush is produced from the high quality polyoxymethylene. A material that is strong, stiff and dimensionally stable. It is resillient, moisture resistant and has excellent wear (abrasion) resistance. These properties make it the ideal material for toothbrush heads, where it is important that the different parts have an exact fit (dimensionally stable) and do not wear.
The most important part of the brush heads are the nylon bristles. It is important that they are soft and well rounded so they can brush gently along all the edges and corners of the teeth and massage the gums, not damage them. We use the best available quality filament for our bristles, namely Dupont Tynex ®. This filament is especially developed for the use in toothbrushes.
Our factory has an ISO 13485 certification for production of medical equipment. The first thing one notices upon entering the factory is therefore the utter hygiene. When entering the production area each employee passes through two wind tunnels, switches clothes and shoes (twice), washes oneself with disinfectant soap and puts on sterile lab clothing. The production area is therefore a completely sterile environment in which the Dentos replacement brushes are produced and packaged from raw materials to end product.
The factory is equiped with the latest high tech machinery that produce the heads from start to finish. The shafts are produced with injection molds from raw POM. The bristles are delivered to us by Dupont in bales and cut to size and end-rounded in our factory. The tufting machine inserts the bristles into the brush heads with utmost precision after which the different parts are assembled to become a complete replacement brush. The last and most important step in the process is quality control. Before packaging, each Dentos brush is mechanically tested on general functioning and tensile strength (20 N).
