Open wide...It's time to brush up on your dental health with the help of the Oral-B SmartSeries electric toothbrush, which gives your pearly whites the once-over and connects to your phone via Bluetooth. It's a bluetoothbrush!
Experts reckon you're supposed to brush your teeth for two minutes each session, but most people don't. To get you into the habit of brushing properly, the SmartSeries talks to your phone via Bluetooth 4.0 and shows a countdown on your phone to make sure you don't short-change your chompers. And at certain intervals, the brush vibrates … Read more
A new toothbrush will play virtual dentist in the privacy of your own bathroom.
Created by Procter & Gamble for its Oral-B brand, the upcoming Oral-B SmartSeries electric toothbrush will use Bluetooth to connect with its companion smartphone app, Reuters said Thursday. Your own dentist can help program the app so you can pay attention to the trouble areas inside your mouth.
"Dentists always tell us: 'People do a great job in the week before they come to visit us and in the week after they visit us. But nothing can hide the fact that when we look inside … Read more
LAS VEGAS -- These days, it seems just about every imaginable thing is "connected." There's connected thermostats, locks, refrigerators, forks, and so many more. And now, add toothbrushes to the list.
Today at CES, Kolibree unveiled what it calls the world's first connected electric toothbrush. Whether anyone actually needs such a device is very much up in the air, but the startup believes that it can help people brush smarter -- and as a result, have healthier teeth.
The concept is simple. Users download Kolibree's mobile app on their smartphone and then connect to the … Read more
If you had a choice between spending 2 minutes or 6 seconds brushing your teeth, you would probably go with the faster method. The Blizzident custom 3D-printed toothbrush is a bizarre-looking toothbrush alternative that promises a 6-second scrub of your pearly whites.
There is no one-size-fits-all Blizzident. Each one is custom-made to fit an individual's mouth. The process starts with an impression or 3D-scan of your teeth. If you have a dentist make an impression, it still needs to be scanned into a 3D file. That scan is uploaded to Blizzident, which then manufactures the toothbrush using 3D printing.… Read more

Shocking news from MIT, where students made a device that will shock them when they've spent too much time on Facebook. In other Facebook news, Giphy is making GIFs a thing on the social-networking site, a la MySpace 1996.

For those of you who hate brushing your teeth under normal circumstances, think about how much harder it is to clean those pearly whites in space, with zero gravity and no sink to get water from or spit into afterwards.

I have lived my life blissfully unscathed by boy band phenomenon One Direction. Until now. Arm & Hammer has released two new Tooth Tunes musical toothbrushes featuring two-minute clips of the chart-topping songs "What Makes You Beautiful" and "One Thing."
The $9.99 toothbrush runs on AAA batteries. The "Music in Your Mouth" technology is described as working by streaming sound vibrations through the brush's bristles into the teeth, making it one of the more bizarre applications of bone-conduction music delivery.… Read more
Some folks are naturally neat-freak morning people. They wake up on time, feeling perky, bounce into the bathroom, and scrub their teeth first thing in the morning. Others need a little extra encouragement. That's where the Wayki alarm clock/toothbrush hopes to come in.
David Hawkins was having trouble dragging himself out of bed in the mornings. He decided he needed a two-part push. Half of the Wayki sits next to the bed, behaving like a regular alarm clock. When it goes off, the only way to silence it is to get up, take it into the bathroom, plug in the toothbrush portion, and trigger a 2-minute brushing timer. Before you know what hit you, you're up and scrubbing your teeth.… Read more
