Who still makes a good old fashioned toothbrush?

    I can't stand any of the new supposedly ergonomic, angled, gripped,
    fancy bristled, oddly shaped manual toothbrushes.

    Where can I find a simple, high quality toothbrush like the old
    squarish Oral-B Indicator brushes that I used for years? Anyone know
    where to find a stash of the old brushes?

    I also have to hunt for "plain" brushes that will fit the brush holder in
    my 1950's bathroom. It is getting harder and harder.

    The drug stores allow shelf space for toothbrushes in direct proportion to
    the amount of advertising done by the manufacturer on each one. The drug
    store is only trying to capitalize on the marketing done by the toothbrush
    manufacturers.

    I often will still see about 15-20 Butler or Oral-B brushes displayed with
    straight handles, straight bristles (all of the same length and direction).
    They are getting harder to find. I personally prefer the Butler #411 as it
    has a straight handle--so that the patient actually can picture where the
    head of it it. It has straight even bristles--so you can brush with a
    "whisking" motion instead of a back and forth one. However, keeping the
    brush in your mouth longer makes a lot more difference to how much plaque
    you remove than the toothbrush design does.
