By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Politics & Government Week -- According to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by VerticalNews journalists, a patent application by the inventor Duncan, Kelly Gail (Washington, NJ), filed on August 14, 2014, was made available online on September 7, 2017.

The assignee for this patent application is Colgate-palmolive Company.

Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The present invention relates to oral care systems and related methods, and more particularly to a system and method including a toothbrush and an applicator for dispensing a fluidic oral care material contained in the toothbrush.

"Oral care materials or agents may be applied in variety of ways. For tooth whitening products, for example, a common technique used for applying tooth whitening products is to cast an impression of a person's teeth and provide a tray of the shape of this impression. A user then adds a whitening composition to the tray and applies the tray to his/her teeth. The tray is left in place for a period of time and then removed. Another technique is to use a whitening strip that has a whitening composition on one surface. This strip is applied to a person's teeth and left in place for a period of time. Yet another technique is to apply a whitening composition to teeth using a small brush. This brush is repeatedly dipped back into the container during the application of the tooth whitening composition to one's teeth. After a few treatments, the teeth gradually whiten using the foregoing techniques.

"The foregoing approaches to oral care material storage, dispensing, and application may not be convenient and readily portable for travel. The oral care product is typically stored separately from the oral care tooth cleaning implements such as a toothbrush and treated as distinct parts of an oral care regimen which must be handled and packed separately.

"A more portable, compact, and convenient way to store, dispense, and apply oral care materials to oral surfaces is desired."

In addition to obtaining background information on this patent application, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventor's summary information for this patent application: "According to an embodiment, an oral care system includes a toothbrush defining a longitudinal axis and including a head and a handle coupled to the head, a reservoir disposed in the toothbrush and containing an oral care material, and an applicator disposed in the toothbrush in fluid communication with the reservoir. The applicator is operable to dispense the oral care material from the reservoir. A cover is movably mounted on the toothbrush, and movable from a closed position covering the applicator to an open position exposing the applicator. In one embodiment, the cover is slidably movable on the toothbrush between the open and closed positions.

"According to another embodiment, a toothbrush includes a longitudinal axis, a head, a handle coupled to the head and including a reservoir configured for holding an oral care material, and an applicator disposed in the handle in fluid communication with the reservoir. The applicator is operable to dispense the oral care material from the reservoir. An axially elongated cover is movably mounted on the handle and movable from a closed position covering the applicator to an open position exposing the applicator. In one embodiment, the cover is slidably movable on the toothbrush between the open and closed positions.

"A method for dispensing oral care material is provided. The method includes: providing a toothbrush comprising a longitudinal axis, a reservoir containing an oral care material, an applicator in fluid communication with the reservoir, and a cover movably mounted on the toothbrush and covering the applicator; moving the cover from a closed position covering the applicator to an open position; exposing the actuator; and dispensing oral care material from the actuator.

"Further areas of applicability of the present invention will become apparent from the detailed description provided hereinafter. It should be understood that the detailed description and specific examples, while indicating the preferred embodiment of the invention, are intended for purposes of illustration only and are not intended to limit the scope of the invention."
