Possibly save yourself some trouble and use a travel-sized or foldable toothbrush. I'm not entirely positive it'll fit, but it's worth a shot. Also, to add mouthwash or toothpaste without taking up a lot of space, use the plastic drinking straw trick (I'll link to one in the next comment) to create single use sized packages.
Neat idea
