Fuchs Bristle brushes are harvested from a special breed of boar raised solely for its bristles. The bristles are carefully harvested using a process similar to the methods employed in shearing sheep. The boar are extremely well cared-for; their bristles are harvested repeatedly during their long lifetimes.
The bristles have different degrees of stiffness, depending upon from which part of the body they originate. This is why natural bristles can be supplied in soft, medium and hard variations. Although most bristles are a light beige color, occasionally some black bristles, noted for their stiffer texture, are used in natural bristle toothbrushes.
Fuchs bristle brushes generally run one level softer than the comparable toothbrush in nylon. Thus, a soft natural brush is equivalent to an extra soft nylon one, a hard natural brush is equivalent to a medium nylon brush and so on. Natural bristle brushes are especially useful for people who require soft-bristled brushes to avoid damaging tooth enamel or sensitive gums.
Fuchs RECORD-V brushes have ripple "V" bristle fields. These uniquely shaped bristles help prevent plaque formation, as they can more effectively get in between the teeth.
Fuchs is one of the original manufacturers of the ripple V bristle toothbrush always at the forefront of dental care technology.
Fuchs has marketed this type of brush head worldwide for more than 40 years. Although billed as a new dental care discovery, ripple v bristles have been a successful part of the Fuchs line since the 1950s!
The Record-V is the best-selling bristle shape in the Fuchs product line.
The Record-V Toothbrush also features a uniquely angled neck, providing maximum agility in reaching even the furthest corners of the mouth. These unique brushes also have the distinction of being copied by most of the major US toothbrush manufacturers over the last few years, albeit at much higher prices.
These brushes will last about 2 months before they need replaced. They are a great introduction to the oral benefits of boar bristles. If you find you like the benefits
you might consider moving up to one of our KOH-I-NOOR boar
brushes which are way more expensive but made of more durable bristle for longer effective life.
