At the CES in Las Vegas this year the latest high tech gadgets were on sh0w. The annual event gives companies and people a chance to showcase the latest in consumer electronics that they expect to be hitting the shelves in the coming year. This year one of the items that generated significant interest was a Bluetooth toothbrush.

The new device could work wonders for peoples dental hygiene and can be connected to your phone or tablet through wifi. It is the first Bluetooth enabled toothbrush to be produced and could be very helpful when caring for your oral health. The developers are also working on a clever API which will give user friendly access to the data collected by the brush.

The brush is obviously electric and will be fitted with sensors which will track to a map of your mouth. The sensors will show you how you actually brush your teeth and if there are any areas of your mouth or gums that you are neglecting. This should help you avoid nasty visits to the dentist including fillings, extractions or even expensive dental implants.

One very interesting benefit for the brush would be for parents. Most parents have a long running battle with their children to make sure they brush their teeth correctly or at all as the case may be. Now they can be TeethWise and find out if their kids have brushed their teeth from the living room chair. They can also make sure that they have done a thorough job starting them on a path to good oral health for life.

The brush has been developed by a French company called Kolibree. It was developed by a former google developer but is still only at prototype stage. He will be looking to raise funding this year to fund the development of the product and hopes to be bringing it to market later this year.

If you think you would like to be one of the first people to buy one, they are expected to retail form $100- 200 depending on the type of API package you opt for. It is quite expensive for a toothbrush but no doubt some dental and tech enthusiasts will want to be the first people to buy them.

Some people doubt the concept and do not think people will want to bring their expensive iphone in to the bathroom with them when they are brushing their teeth.

Maybe, only time will tell.

  1. Hey Eoin,
    The concept is pretty awesome, as while thinking of now i must say it can be the best product as oral hygiene will be pretty easy with some extra ordinary device like this toothbrush…

    Hello Eion,

    Technology is unto us and the benefits are indeed tremendous. It is a very great idea that at last, the hefty dental bills spent annually may at least reduce.

    Now, this is what technology is all about – impacting life for the better!

    Always,

    A bit pointless don’t you think so? And agree with previous comment, does something like that worth a hundred bucks?

      It depends on how you look at it, my dear Kaloyan. The last time I checked, dental checks could well exceed that amount: which would you rather go with?

        It is all about good habbits. If I have to connect my toothbrush to my mobile phone and wifi, I will be totally lost. What habbit this will build in my children the natural way. My grandpa have full package 32 teeth and 4 fillings, it isn’t because his dental hygiene is top level, but because regular lifestyle and excellent genetics. I personally would stick to classics.
        Dental checks are free, procedures can be expensive, depending on where you are located. Sorry mate, but this item is completely unnecessary by my personal opinion. If it is at the price of normal toothbrush sure, I will go for it. How often you change your tooth brush in a year 3-4 times? This cost a fortune, multiply this by 3 kids and add 2 adults.

          I find your arguments a little faulty, Kaloyan. Your grandfather may never have have the opportunity to taste chocolate (or any of these ‘stubborn foods) his entire life. He would thus be okay to go without any advancement to his dental hygiene.

          I think it high time you understand that we are living in a complex world which has complex habits and demands complex solutions! Maybe, arguing about the price alone may make me see reason with you…

          Always,

    It sure is a gadget which we geeks would want to have. But it would be foolish to spend so much on a simple device. Everyone is in a hurry in morning and no one gets time to do such checks while brushing. My personal opinion.

    Interesting innovation. First it was smartphone now its smart brush. The world is really changing, technology is steadily evolving and with the way things are going it won’t be long before we see flying cars and a lot of those things we see in fiction movies. Nice one i must say, atleast it will help parents keep watch of their kids health.

    I didn’t seen Bluetooth toothbrush yet, a little bit expensive, I can live a week with 100 bucks and to pay this much for a toothbrush sounds stupid, I can’t imagine how to tell my friends I got this for that kind of money, they probably laugh like crazy not to mention some of them can’t afford a normal life, they might be offended.

  18. Wow, sign me up. I have had so many dental problems and still do. I carry a toothbrush in my purse and my evening bag as well. But thet don’t give feedbback. This brush could save me thousands. I realize not everyone needs it. My best friend has never had a cavity in her life. But for people like me it would be well worth it. I will be looking for this on the marker. Thanks for sharing this information.

    It’s amazing how fast technology progresses. I wonder if this will make kids want to brush their teeth, LOL. I can imagine the tooth brush pulsing with their favorite songs to maybe make it more entertaining.
