"Which Style of Pro-phy-lac-tic Do You Use?

You never knew there were so many Pro-phy-lac-tic styles, did you? There are as many Pro-phy-lac-tic styles as there are tooth brush needs and tastes.

Pro-phy-lac-tic Tooth Brush
'A Clean Tooth Never Decays'

Sizes, for instance. Pro-phy-lac-tic tooth brushes come in adult's, youth's and child's sizes - so marked on one end of the box.

Bristles, next. Every Pro-phy-lac-tic style (except the Dental Plate and unbleached brushes) comes in hard, medium and soft bristles - so marked on the brush and on one end of the box.

Handles - Pro-phy-lac-tic comes in Rigid handles (preferred by many), Flexible handles (a comfort to those who have tender gums) and transparent flexible handles (Pro-phy-lac-tic De Luxe, in three colors, which render identification still easier.)

Specials - Pro-phy-lac-tic provides a special four-row (instead of three-row) brush, for adults preferring a larger brush; a Dental Plate brush; and a brush with unbleached bristles (recommended by many dentists).

Every one of these Pro-phy-lac-tics has, of course, the guaranteed Pro-phy-lac-tic quality, and the valuable thorough-cleansing features originated by Pro-phy-lac-tic.
