aApplicationfiledrSepte-mber-21,1925. Serial nojszaasa My invention relates to improvements in teeth cleaning devices, .adaptedtespecially to be used by dentists and to be'operated by the conventional dental. engines for cleaning and polishing theteeth,. and myinvention hasfon its object the provisionof an v improved construction oftliis' character which ishighly efficient l1 'l :1lSei -.nCl capable.

ofvery economical manufacture.

ther objects will appear hereinafter.

The invention consists in the combinations. and arrangements: of: parts-hereinafter :le.

scribed and claimed.

V The invention will bebest understood by .15 referencev to the accompanying. drawings forming a part/of this specification, andin which, Y

Fig.1 represents an enlarged central longitudinal section through an instrument made in accordance with my present invention,

Fig. 2 is a side elevational view of the instrument, Fig. 3 is a side elevational view of the mandrel with a part thereof shown in section,

Fig. t represents an enlarged plan view of the top end of the mandrel,

Fig. 5 represents a top plan view-of a mold body, fractionally shown, the same being illustrated as containing a number of my improved instruments as vulcanized therein, and V Fig. 6 represents a fragmentary section of the mold body, showing my improved instruments as vulcanized therein, and further showing base and top members applied thereto.

The preferred embodiment of 'my invenso tion, as illustrated in the accompanying drawing, comprises a rod-like mandrel 7 which is adapted to have one end inserted within and secured to the usual mandrel holder of the flexible shaft on the conventional dental engine. The opposite end of the mandrel, herein shown to be the top end thereof, is provided with a central bore 8;.

and struck from the wall defining this bore are interval-spaced jutting parts 9 which are bent laterally as shown. In view of the provision of these interval-spaced laterally directed jutting parts, theremainder of the wall around the bore 8 consists of intervalspaced jutting parts 10 which are directed aria-11y oflthemandrell. In practicefthe central bore having been drilled out or other-wise produced, thejjutting .parts be rapidly and inexpensively produced by means .of ai-suitable punch and die mechanism. 1

on the end; of the mandrel, my next steptis, to mold, compress and vulcanizethe contact; p ece or. polishing member: 11-. about the .jut-

the depending boss 17 compresses the raw rubber material into the bore 8, about the jutting parts 9 and 1-0 and also upon that portion of theimandrel which projects into I top member '16 properly clamped thereto (clamping means not shown) is placed in a suitable vulcanizer where the temperature is raised to the point necessary for vulcanizing the contact piece about the jutting parts and upon the mandrel. j The mold body is preferably made witha large number of bores and matrices for the accommodation at one time of a large number of mandrels. By makingthe mold body V v precise details of construction set forth, but desire to avail myself of such variations and ture may be effectually reducedsojthat it will accommodate a battery of mandrels at one time, thecost of manufac- Thepolishing instruments of the present invention may be manufactured andlmarketed so cheaply thatJdentists can Well afford to use a fresh polishing instrument on each 'onepatient to another.-=
