High-Pressure Water Device (US 6783505)

High-pressure hoses quickly and efficiently clean the dirt off of a sidewalk or driveway, so why not use it to clean your teeth? This 2002 patent is for a rotating apparatus that connects to any faucet and creates a high-pressure stream to blast away any of that leftover plaque that is found on teeth. Stronger than a regular water pick, the device is also meant to be used to clean the back of the teeth, so the power of a restricted garden hose can cleanse even the most stubborn of molars.
