It’s kind of something you would expect a Kickstarter to have come up with. Although I’m pretty sure if it was a Kickstarter, it would be designed with a replaceable milk frothing head so you could use it to make cappuccinos as well.
Alas, it doesn’t make cappuccinos, it is just an electric toothbrush… but a toothbrush with bluetooth connectivity, analysing every stroke you make when brushing your teeth. Most people already have an electric toothbrush these days and the chances are, it’s an Oral-B. I, for one, have had one for years and could not imagine how I could keep my oral hygiene in peak condition without it.I always alternate between a normal toothbrush in the mornings and an electric toothbrush at night. The reason is that during the day, from all the eating I would have gathered more food crap on and between my teeth so I need something more powerful to remove the germs. At night while sleeping nothing really happens in my mouth, well at least nothing I’m aware of… so a simple old fashioned toothbrush is enough to give it a quick polish and freshen my breath.
The thing I didn’t know until recently is that by brushing too hard you could actually damage your gums and the enamel on your teeth. This is actually the key reason why I really like the Oral-B Pro 5000… sounds like it should make coffee. It has a red light that turns on when you’re pressing too hard. I feel like that alone has made this toothbrush worth getting.Of course it comes with a whole bunch of other features like different cleaning modes, timer function and gum massaging modes. The wireless SmartGuide smiles at you when you’ve brushed correctly. I can’t say I care if it gives me 3 or 5 stars but the little device doubles as a handy bathroom clock that looks good.
The RRP is $259.99, sounds steep but your teeth are worth it.
