The angle and slimness of the brush makes it possible to reach all the molars and that a healthy brushing has been accomplished
For those who like compact head toothbrushes, this one is well nigh perfect. The slightly "bent" handle that give the toothbrush its name makes it easier to get back to your molars, and the "sensitive" bristles are just what your gums need.
My only wish is that GUM would once again offer this brush in it full head size with sensitive bristles. It was their number 434 brush, and I used it happily for years. Unfortunately, I've had to move on to other GUM brushes that are just not quite as satisfactory. The compact head forces this one into that category, too, so just four stars.
But this is a personal reaction. As I said, if you like the compact head, this is the toothbrush for you.
You know, all the modern design toothbrushes are horrible. Whenever I use them my hands cramp up, lose grip anc cut my gums and are just hard to handle. This traditional handle toothbrush albeit hard to find is the best. Easy to handle, does not cause cramps in your hand and very traditional. Great toothbrush that is simple and just does its job..
This design is very hard to find. Therefore I thank Sunstar/Butler G.U.M for having this flat handle toothbruth avaliable. The modern round handle toothbrush are just too hard, uncomfortable and have other annoying features(i.e. that BS tongue scraper...I HATE THOSE) that just don't help. Staying simple is the key an this traditinal handle toothbrush does this.
Going to buy another 16 more of these soon. Thanks a lot.
Not as soft as I expected from a GUM toothbrush.
I ordered 50 of them. I will give them away.
I have been useing these toothbrushes for 20+ years. My dentist raves about the condition of my gums. Today only expensive, oversized toothbrushes are available in drugstores. I buy 2 doz on line and my whole family loves them.
