Its called Blizzident, its a custom made 3d toothbrush that claims to give a perfect clean in 6 seconds only.

Procedure

Your Dentist performs a 3D scan of your mouth, than a 3D model of your mouth is sent to the official Site of Blizzident. An Inverse mold of your mouth is made from that scan and the surface of this mold is is attached with soft and ultrafine Bristles.

Brushing Technique

First place some toothpaste on the tongue and move it over your upper and lower teeth, Brushing is basically done by inserting the 3D toothbrush in the mouth and Bite and grind on it for 15 times which roughly takes 6 seconds to be done.Because the toothbrush is so perfectly formed and contains so many bristles, they claim it:

  • Cleans all teeth surfaces so perfectly.
  • Cleans the tongue.
  • Not much time is spent for flossing.

Rounding out the technical details, the Blizzident costs $300, and you’ll need to replace it every year ($160 for a new one, or $90 to have your current one refurbished with new bristles). Getting a scan from your dentist will probably cost between $100 and $200.

Benefits

  • Time saving, as it cleans your teeth with some basic flossing will take 60 seconds daily compared to 10 minutes daily via normal toothbrushing techniques, that is 9 minutes saved daily, 3285 yearly (around 55 hours).
  • All Surface cleaning.

Disadvantages

  • No Clinical Trials have been published yet to hold up to their claim.
  • No FDA Approval except for the plastic used to make the toothbrush ( FDA Approval isn’t required for toothbrushes)
  • Due to short period of brushing, there isn’t enough time  Fluoride in the toothpaste to penetrate the enamel surface, thus losing the benefit of fluoride.
  • Blizzident is usable by kids, But because of the child’s teeth movement, changes, eruptions and exfoliation. The perfect custom fit  and perfect clean can’t be kept long enough unless its changed which is costly.
