 Many modified versions of the conventional toothbrush exist on the market today. Toothbrushes have been altered to improve things such as grip of the handle by adding non-slip material to the parts that make contact with the user's hand. Oral B. Corporation along with other companies, have created the “Indicator”, which indicates wear and tear on the bristles by adding a pigment that wears off with prolonged use. Virtually all toothbrush manufacturers have tried to enhance the effectiveness of the bristles by shaping them in concave fashion, and even to allow the shaft of the toothbrush to bend and flex in order to achieve better cleaning results. Perhaps most related to the present invention, however is a bristle pick, which can be fixed onto a short rod. G.U.M Corporation currently sells such a product under the name of “Proxabrush.” However the “Proxabrush” is not part of a toothbrush and thus requires the user to utilize two different teeth cleaning items in order to achieve the desired dental hygiene.
 The present invention is a toothbrush with a tapered bristle pick located at the bottom of the handle shaft, which may be retracted and stored within a cavity of the handle shaft when not in use.
 The bristle pick is engaged manually by pulling out of a concavity located at the bottom of the toothbrush shaft. The vertically disposed cavity includes a rotatable portion, which allows the bristle pick to swing out as an attached arm at the base of the toothbrush shaft. The pivotally attached bristle pick extends out to form a 45 degree angle to the shaft for maximum comfort when utilizing the pick.
