3D Printed Blizzdent Toothbrush Promises to Revolutionize Mouth Hygiene


Blizzdent

Ordinary Tooth Brush

 

An unusual toothbrush, called “Blizzdent,” promises to take care of oral hygiene in just six seconds, according to an article published in Mashable.

In fact, the tool, which is custom made using a 3D printer, does not look anything like an ordinary brush, as it has the shape and measure to fit in the mouth and teeth of its proper owner.

However, the invention can adjust perfectly in the oral cavity of the individual whom it was prepared for, it can clean all teeth simultaneously.

The instrument looks more like an acrylic plate used by those who suffer from bruxism during their sleep.  Inside there are over 600 bristles which can move independently, gently cleaning all teeth.

The goal, according to the company that manufactures the product, is to achieve a thorough brushing with the same efficiency as having your teeth cleaned at the dentists.

However, the process must begin by asking a user to actually visit the dentist. The doctor should make a mold of the patient’s mouth first and send it to the company.

The custom item will be ready within 12 weeks, says the manufacturer.

It takes a next-generation high-precision 3D printer to produce Blizzdent, which results in the brush being so smooth. As most current printers can create objects with rough surfaces, they are unsuitable for such fine work.

Initially, “Blizzdent” will be sold in the US for around $300, which does not include the amount paid to the dentist in order to create the initial mold.

However, the manufacturer says that the brush can last for up to a year before a replacement of the bristles is needed, at a cost of $159.
