One night when I was about eight years old or so, I had a very vivid dream of a toothbrush where the bristle end was bent toward the inner aspect of
the wrist, if you were gripping it in your hand. It seemed like a good idea, in that you would be able to reach back teeth easier, thus getting them
cleaner without having to torque your wrist in an uncomfortable way.
I can remember getting up, immediately getting my toothbrush and bending it like I had dreamed. It really did seem to work better for me. I kept my
toothbrush that way for a very long time.
About a year or so later, I was watching the TV when a commercial came on advertising a toothbrush with a handle "angled like a dental instrument."
Yes, it was the "Reach" toothbrush, which went on to make Johnson & Johnson big bucks.
I wish I would have had the foresight to patent the idea or something.
