The smartest toothbrush arrives soon


This September, Oral-B will revolutionize toothbrush technology with their newest addition, the Triumph with SmartGuide. This dental duo promises to be the iPhone of the toothbrush world. I swear I'm not exaggerating. I'll even bet you a trip to the dentist if I'm wrong.

A true team approach, the Triumph (the toothbrush) communicates wirelessly via a transmitter to the SmartGuide. The SmartGuide is a small battery operated LCD display that you can stick on your bathroom mirror. Basically, the SmartGuide tells you how long to brush and can be set to tell you how much time to spend in each quadrant of your mouth. If you've got sensitive teeth or gums, no worries, there are settings for sensitive cleaning, cleaning, massaging, and polishing.

The trickiest part of mastering the routine is committing the smart icon system to memory . After that, it's a breeze (well, brush really). Soon, you'll be switching between the two different brush heads, cleaning and polishing like a fiend. Just don't get too attached to your brush heads, because they actually talk to the toothbrush base and let you both know when it's time to change over to a new set.

At the end of a cycle you'll be rewarded with a digital smile. I've never felt so committed to a dental product in my whole life. I actually feel guilty when I don't use it. My dentist would be so proud . . . and probably unemployed! All I need now is a flossing friend.

Price: About $150, but if you visit the website today you can register for a $10 rebate,

Here's the only video we could find, because Oral-B/Braun is a German company it's in German of course!
