In the past few years, your 60419 dentists at Ivanhoe Dental Group have been paying attention to the new and upcoming 3D technology. Our dentists are excited to share a new product that has recently hit the market: the 3D custom-tailored toothbrush called Blizzident!
The toothbrush is created and designed to fit each user’s unique mouth. It appears to be a set of hairy dentures, and all you need to do is bit down and move your teeth around to brush. Although there haven’t been enough studies yet to prove it true, developers claim that this new brushing technology can clean teeth within 6 seconds!
To tailor the brush to a person's mouth, dentists take a digital scan of the teeth (or take an impression that is later scanned). The makers of Blizzident use that scan to determine the optimal placement of 600 bristles by simulating biting and chewing movements. The bristles resemble normal toothbrush bristles but are much finer and tapered to reach under the gum line better.
The tailor-made toothbrush, available online or from some dentists, currently costs a hefty $299. But the brush's makers stress it could actually save people time spent on brushing their teeth. Click here to learn more about Blizzident.
