It never ceases to amaze me how everything is getting the “smart” upgrade these days. We’ve got smartphones, smart cars, smart watches, smart TV’s, smart thermostats – and now we’ve also got a smart toothbrush. I’ve seen electric toothbrushes for years which claim to clean your teeth quite a bit better than the regular old toothbrushes, but until recently, I’d never heard of a smart toothbrush that will actually communicate with your smartphone to report on how well you’re brushing (or not brushing) your teeth – but it does exist, in the form of the Oral – B 5000 Bluetooth Smart Toothbrush. Did you ever think you’d see the words toothbrush and Bluetooth combined in the same product?
The toothbrush is able to monitor how often you brush, where you brush vs. where you need to be brushing more, how hard you’re brushing (in case you’re doing it too hard), and it’s also able to graph all of your brushing habits. Oh yeah, it also does a pretty good job of cleaning your teeth on top of all those other features.
If you’d like to get your
hands teeth on this toothbrush, you can get it on Amazon for the approximate price of $79, which seems like a lot at first, but remember, you do only get one set of real teeth and it’s important to take care of them the best way you can.
