A Toothbrush that Tracks Progress
By Mina Levi, DDS, 01/14/15
Recently, the company Kolibree came out with a new toothbrush product that allows you to track and improve yours or your children’s dental hygiene routine. This toothbrush uses a unique technology to analyze brushing habits and display them on a mobile dashboard. In this article, Dentist San Francisco Mina Levi discusses the Kolibree toothbrush, what it does and what problems it aims to solve.
How does this toothbrush work?
First, the user of the toothbrush will need to download the free mobile app, connected via Bluetooth. From there, every brushing with the Kolibree toothbrush is downloaded to the app. The data about the brushing session will synchronize to a smart phone and tell the user whether or not they brushed for long enough and whether or not you reached the hard to reach parts of your teeth and gums. The stats from the app are easily shared with Dentist San Francisco, and the app even works with multiple toothbrushes/family members. The Kolibree toothbrush gives positive feedback and cheers on improvement, which encourages children to improve habits.
What problems does the Kolibree toothbrush solve?
Home care is essential for the overall health of your mouth. With the Kolibree toothbrush letting you know how to improve, it can improve the home care aspect of dental care. With improved home care, it can make an improvement in gum disease and lower dental caries. It is still very important to visit the dentist regularly.
