This was designed to help with dental care. It should be able to get toothpaste on your brush with just a push of a button. Toothpaste can be inserted through the bottom of the tube and with the button on the side, the right amount of toothpaste will come up through the brush. The brush should be inserted through the top of the structure. This will help you by letting you brush your teeth without a mess as well as help conserve toothpaste so that not too much and not too little is used.
