A triumph of a toothbrush - Oral-B Smart Technology
Did you know the average person spends about 47 seconds brushing their teeth, less than half the 2 minutes dentists recommend? Or that you can brush too hard, which can contribute to early gum recession? Scary stuff.
Now, this may not seem like a perfect gift for Mother's Day but if you consider that the "mouth is the gateway to health" and that moms don't spend money on themselves, it makes sense.
The new Oral-B features Smart Technology which enables the brushhead, handle and visual display to work together to give you visual cues that help you brush better. The brushhead and handle, which are embedded with microchips, communicate with the wireless display to signal when you are brushing too hard, when to move to the next quadrant of the mouth, when you have brushed for two minutes, and when it is time to replace the brushhead.
At first, I was discouraged by all the pieces (it comes with a unit to attach to a wall) and the instructions, but it's actually an easy one-step process, and since the display unit is wireless, you can put that anywhere.
Oral-B Triumph with SmartGuide is available for $149 at Amazon.
Just throw in some Godiva chocolate and you're golden.
