The Austrian engineers have presented the world’s first smart toothbrush that ideally cleans teeth in 10 seconds. Just put Amabrush in your mouth and switch it on.
Dentists recommend cleaning the teeth twice a day – in the morning and in the evening – for at least 2-3 minutes. It means that on average 1.25 seconds are spent on each tooth. Smart toothbrush Amabrush resembles a denture, but instead of teeth, it has two rows of bristles, which brush every tooth for 10 seconds.
To create Amabrush, inventors analyzed over 2000 different types of jaws. Then they elaborated a specially shaped toothbrush, made of flexible materials, which would be a nice match for every adult.
Bristles of Amabrush are made of hypoallergic and antibacterial silicone, which kills 99.99% of all known bacteria, researchers say. After you press the button, toothpaste is foamed in a special magnetic capsule. Micro-channels transport the toothpaste to bristles, which start moving, accurately brushing the teeth surface.
The device uses batteries and a full charge lasts for 28 sessions of use. The operation of toothbrush is adjusted with the help of a smartphone application. User can choose the brushing time, massage or whitening mode, order replacement parts or toothpaste.
Besides, users will need to buy special toothpaste capsules for Amabrush, which cost €3. A single capsule lasts for a month. Available options include whitening, fresh, and sensitive (without fluoride) toothpastes. The silicone part of the toothbrush should be replaced every 3-6 months. It can be ordered for €6.
The basic configuration of Amabrush costs €113, but when purchased with a wireless charging module, it costs €200. Currently, developers are raising funds with a Kiсkstarter campaign. Supplies start in December.
