Bizzident: Toothbrushes Just Got Technical

Last Updated on

3D printing has sparked a revolution – it’s a zero way technique of making products that’s improving year on year. From shoes to dresses and even guns (yes, really!), it seems every kind of imaginable product is being revolutionised by 3D printing techniques, and now, the humble toothbrush is no exception.

It may look terrifying – as though you’ve got a mouthful of razors – but actually the 3D printed Bizzident toothbrush is far softer and more gentle than you’d imagine.

Made from a zero waste technique, the Blizzident toothbrush  lasts for up to a year and is tailor made to fit your mouth, via a scan from your dentist. It forms a bespoke teeth cleaning machine that only takes 6 seconds to leave you with sparkling clean gnashers. The bristles are individually positioned on every single tooth in a way so they are brushing with the “Modified Bass“- and “Fones” techniques (recommended by dentists around the world). All you need to do? Simply bite and grind for a few seconds – it’s actually idea for anyone with arm mobility issues.

But that’s not all – you can also floss your teeth in no time flat! Just  route dental floss through customised slits that are perfectly positioned in your interdental regions: when you bite and grind, you’ll be flossing at the same time. The handle of the Blizzident serves as a container for a dental floss roll, too.

When biting and grinding, you move your jaws slightly to the right and left and forwards/backwards: through these motions floss hugs around the teeth and goes below the gumline of the left and right tooth in a precisely controlled way.

By biting down, you clean  the  gingival sulcus  (the space underneath the gum line) especially well, while also cleaning all other surfaces perfectly. You simply bite and release quickly 10-15 times. This helps create the little vibrating movements of the “Bass”-technique.

There’s even a little brush for tongue-cleaning, too (pictured below). Basically, you can take care of all your dental needs in about ten seconds flat!

 

A major step up from your typical electric toothbrush, we think this device is pretty eco for a few reasons: one, it’s so efficient, it requires no toothpaste, so no taps will be running for the average 1.2 minutes that most people leave them on for when cleaning and rinsing their teeth, and no toothpaste (most of which are quite toxic) will be ingested–although using some is an option you can choose. Two, while dentists recommend we change toothbrushes 4 times a year, this only needs to be changed once a year, thus is less wasteful.

While the price tag may be a bit hefty (over $200), what you’ll save on dental bills may justify the price.
