New Toothbrush Cleans Teeth in 6 Seconds

Thursday, 03 Oct 2013 12:13 PM


A new application of 3D printing is in the shape of a toothbrush, sort of. Blizzident is a 3D-printed device designed to get your teeth squeaky clean in just six seconds.

The tooth-scrubbing gadget is custom-made from a scan of your teeth taken by your dentist and is shaped like a pair of dentures with bristles sprouting out of it. To brush your teeth, you bite it, chomp for six seconds while bristles placed at multiple angles evenly clean your pearly whites and gums. While saving you time, the device supposedly eliminates human error from brushing by hand, which often leads to missing spots or brushing too aggressively on the gums.

Still, Blizzident comes at a cost: while you'll only need to replace it once a year, your first Blizzident will cost $475 and subsequent models will cost about $250. And you'll still need to find time for flossing (the Blizzident's handle also serves as a floss dispenser).

Other techy toothbrush innovations include the Bluetooth-connected Beam Brush, which tracks your brushing habits and plays music while you brush for the recommended two minutes. Also, the German-made Emmi-dent claims to be the first toothbrush to use ultrasound to get teeth clean, while reducing wear and tear on your gums and enamel.
