Would You Spend $300 on a Toothbrush?

Family Dentist PhoenixIt was bound to happen. In an age of convenience and the 10-second-attention span, the three minutes it takes to brush your teeth has become too time-consuming. A company called “Blizzadent” has created a toothbrush that can have your teeth sparkling clean in less time than it takes you to finish reading this sentence.

The new 3D-printed toothbrush, looks like a mouthguard lined with 600 bristles. You bite down into the 3D replication of your mouth and grind your teeth on the bristles, which cleans all of your teeth simultaneously.

The process of ordering one of these custom-fit brushes begins in your dentist’s office. Your dentist in North Scottsdale AZ takes an impression of your teeth and sends it to Blizzident — and the team gets to work. Printing and manufacturing takes about 12 weeks.

The ease and convenience of this toothbrush is unparalleled. It’s as easy as biting into an apple and takes only six seconds to fully clean your teeth. It even has grooves if you want to wind in some dental floss to get your flossing done as well.

This is all wonderful….however, your first Blizzident will cost you $300 — a pretty penny more than a typical toothbrush. This does not including payment to your dentist for the impressions. The brush lasts a full year, since the bristles do a lot less work that those of traditional toothbrushes and customers can replace the brush for $159 or send it back to the company, and for $89, Blizzident replaces the bristles and disinfects the brush. So….is it worth it? Well, that’s up to you. Would you spend $300 on a toothbrush?
