Smart Toothbrushes Can Improve Dental Hygiene

smarth toothbrushesWe have smart phones, smart TVs, and smart cars; so it was only a matter of time before we had smart toothbrushes! Smilez Pediatric Dental Associates is always on the lookout for new and upcoming technologies for our practice. We want to let everyone know about technologies that can help them improve dental hygiene.  This new smart toothbrush is really neat; especially for our tech-savvy children and parents.

Here is an excerpt of an article that originally appeared in Dentistry IQ:

“According to the company, the world’s first “smart toothbrush” was developed by Kolibree, and has the potential to change tooth brushing habits of children and adults by motivating individuals to brush better through games (for kids) and coaching (for adults) that guide them toward improved dental hygiene. This article will highlight the features of this new product.

Kolibree technology includes 3-D motion sensors that can identify the area of the mouth in which the user is brushing. These sensors include a gyroscope, accelerometer, and a magnetometer that detect the location and angle of the brush, then analyze data to provide instant feedback to the user. This powerful technology also has the ability to store data, and create a personalized visual “check-up” to show where the user brushed —and missed—over a 7-day period.”
