Denta  Comfort




The first Anti-bacterial  Toothbrush in Sri Lanka

Pieces of  stick,  little bones of animals or perhaps a nicely cleaned feather of a bird were  among  a  few things used by people in the  early days  to clean their  teeth, prior  to the  invention of a toothbrush.

The  first ever toothbrush  was found by the Chinese.   Although the first toothbrush  was invented by   “ Usakkaspa  Fassi “  who was residing in  England , during that time  it was the  United States  of America who  obtained the  Patent for a toothbrush  in the year  1850.    The use of  toothbrush  thereafter was made a routine  habit for the  American soldiers  during the  World  War  which soon  became a habit  of their families  too and thus  began the  use  of a “toothbrush '' by many.


Year 1994  marked a significant  mild stone  in the history  of  Darley Butler & Company  when the  Denta Toothbrush  was launched.   This created an impact  in the toothbrush market  which was  dominated by  a multinational  brand and cheap  imported brands.   Today Denta  has become a household  brand name  for oral hygiene.


With bristles  being the most  important part  of a  toothbrush,  Darley  Butler &  Co  Ltd  have  taken  a  step  ahead  in  introducing the  “ Denta  Comfort  toothbrush   with Dupont  Tynex ' anti bacterial '  bristles.  Tynex  StaClean  filaments (bristles)  which  are being  used to manufacture  Denta Comfort contain antimicrobial  additives which inhibits the  growth  of bacteria and fungi on the bristles  between users.


Dupont  Tynex  is a registered trade  mark  of Dupont   U.S.A.  and Dupont Tynex  StaClean  Filament  is another  novel  technology  from  Dupont.



In  addition  to the anti-bacterial  bristles,  Denta Comfort comes  with  a  handy  two  component  handle  and  many colours  to choose from.    The  perfect  grip  and  curved  neck  gives the  users  a superior  brushing power.


Health Tips



What Is the Right Way to Brush?

Proper brushing takes at least two minutes — that's right, 120 seconds! Most adults do not come close to brushing that long. To get a feel for the time involved, try using a stopwatch. To properly brush your teeth, use short, gentle strokes, paying extra attention to the gum line, hard-to-reach back teeth and areas around fillings, crowns or other restoration. Concentrate on thoroughly cleaning each section as follows:

  • Clean the outer surfaces of your upper teeth, then your lower teeth
  • Clean the inner surfaces of your upper teeth, then your lower teeth
  • Clean the chewing surfaces
  • For fresher breath, be sure to brush your tongue, too



Tilt the brush at a 45°
angle against the gum line and sweep or roll the brush away from the gum line.

Gently brush the outside, inside and chewing surface of each tooth using short back-and-forth strokes.

Gently brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen breath.


Dental professional have given the followings instructions for toothbrush users ? 

  • Correct brushing helps you to have good teeth for a long time
  • Brushing twice a day specially after dinner is good for  oral teeth
  • Change the bristles when the filament in the tuft bend



What Type of Toothbrush Should I Use ?

Most dental professionals agree that a soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth. Small-headed brushes

are also preferable, since they can better reach all areas of the mouth, including hard-to-reach back teeth.


How Often Should I Replace My Toothbrush?

You should replace your toothbrush when it begins to show wear, or every three months, whichever comes first. It is also very important to change toothbrushes after you've had a cold, since the bristles can collect germs that can lead to re-infection.

How Important is the Toothpaste I Use ?

It is important that you use toothpaste that's right for you. Today there is a wide variety of toothpaste designed for many conditions, including cavities, gingivitis, tartar, stained teeth and sensitivity. Use Denta toothpaste for better results.
