Colgate-Palmolive is developing the new brush.

Their patent application describing the innovation says “the present invention pertains to an oral care implement generally, and more particularly to a toothbrush that releases a chemical into the mouth during use.”

That chemical or drug, of course, is caffeine.

The mechanism is a patch that would last about three months and could be replaced or traded out whenever the user would like.
