New 3D made toothbrush that promises to clean your teeth in 6 seconds
Many dentists agree that proper brushing takes at least two minutes, but most adults do not come close to brushing that long nor do they even do it correctly.
You’ve all seen those commercials of toothbrushes that promise to cut down brushing time to just 40 seconds or 30 seconds, and the latest novelty on oral hygiene care, is the six second toothbrush from and American company called Blizzident.
This new type of toothbrush is tailor-made to fit into a person's mouth by using 3D printing to perfectly create a a toothbrush based on your oral cavity and looks like a set of dentures.
A dental scan is used to create a computer aided design ( CAD ) model of the brush, which is then converted into a 3D object using stereolithography.
Stereolithography is technology used for producing models, prototypes, patterns, and production parts which liquid plastic (photopolymer resin) is then created into the shape with an ultraviolet laser.
Once the customized device is printed, the maker then attaches 400 soft and tapered (to reach your gum line better) bristles on the toothbrush.
Blizzident scrubs your entire mouth, as a person just has to bite down fifteen times and grind their teeth for about six seconds, as the device automatically works using the two basic brushing techniques: an altered version of the “Modified Bass” - which is brushing back and forth - and the “Fones” method - which is the circular movement - because the bristles are placed in a 45 degree angle.
The Blizzident brush can even floss and clean your tongue at the same time, because it is equipped with a tongue scraper and other bristles, and you can decide whether to press your tongue against it and have bacteria removed from it.
The tailor-made toothbrush which is available online costs € 299 and needs to be replaced every 12 months (the replacement costs less) and is 100% recyclable .
