This toothbrush is very useful for everybody wanting to improve their oral hygiene, because it also shows you if you did not brush a certain part of your teeth properly and to which area of your mouth you should pay more attention. You can even share your statistics with your dentist, for him to design an integrated plan for you to have healthier teeth, or just keep it for yourself only.
This product is specially designed for families, so several toothbrushes can connect to the same application. It rewards you when you make a progress, cheers you up when you improve your teeth brushing and gives points to kids, in order to encourage them to have good brushing habits and respect the time needed for brushing each day.
Its inventors want to introduce it on the market starting with this autumn. It is going to cost between 99 – 200 US dollars, depending on the model you want to buy, while the application needed for it would be free for everybody buying the toothbrush. Lots of parents all over the world will probably be interested in purchasing it for their children, in order to constantly monitor and improve their oral hygiene and have brighter, whiter and healthier teeth.
