I am looking for a finger tooth brush, the ones that are handed out in jail apparently. They weigh only 2 grams. Does anyone know where I can get one?Mar 23, 2014 at 4:13 am #2085342

You'll find a variety of infant and toddler toothbrushes on Amazon, which are pretty much (maybe exactly?) the same thing. I recently purchased http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009NKL4JE/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 which works fine. Warning though, it comes in at a whopping 4 grams on my scale.Mar 23, 2014 at 6:04 am #2085344

Go to your local pet supply store and get a finger toothbrush for dogs like these:Mar 23, 2014 at 6:07 am #2085345
They also sell finger toothbrushes in pet stores but I'm not sure of the weight or if they are exactly the same. Edit slow on the drawMar 23, 2014 at 7:25 am #2085352

Now you just have to make sure you hands are nice and clean before sticking fingers in your mouth. I'll stick with a real toothbrush.Mar 23, 2014 at 8:20 am #2085367

I grabbed one of these off my shelf to use in the woods. I found the bristles really stiff and uncomfortable, so don't be too enthusiastic with your brushing at first or you may gouge your gums. Now I don't recommend them for my patients, especially not for cats or tiny dogs.Mar 23, 2014 at 10:21 am #2085390

Zpacks has a good one, nice and short. A full tube of travel tooth paste and the brush come in at .7oz.
Could I go lighter? Yes I could use the paste that comes in the Zpacks kit, but it's only good for two or three nights and I would have the hassle of refilling it often etc. Some people dehydrate it! Clean teeth are important to me, and me sticking my hands deep in my mouth just to save 1 gram does not appeal to me.Mar 23, 2014 at 10:30 am #2085394

I've never had a good experience trying to put a finger in a cat's mouth :) Like jamming your hand into a box of fish hooks with your eyes closed!
I just use a travel toothbrush and a little squeeze vial of get toothpaste and live with the enormous weight and bulk.Mar 23, 2014 at 12:48 pm #2085431
Oral B Brushes, does anyone remember theses? I wonder if they still make them:Mar 23, 2014 at 2:43 pm #2085462
2 grams is 2 grams too much. ;-)
