Behold the Blizzident toothbrush, the latest in dental care technology. A specialized team of dentists and engineers applied the latest of 3D printing to create a custom molded toothbrush that is perfectly tailored to clean your own teeth. According to Blizzident, six seconds is all it takes to properly clean your teeth!

Conventional tooth brushing requires a thorough technique. First, visually split your teeth into quadrants (top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right). Brush the outer and inner surfaces at a 45-degree angle in short half-tooth-wide strokes along the gum line. Next, the chewing surfaces are brushed flat. As for the inside surfaces, brush vertically and use up and down strokes with the toe of your brush. Finally, the tongue must be brushed in a back-to front motion to remove food particles.

The conventional tooth brushing technique recommends a person to spend at least 30 seconds on each quadrant of their mouth, or a total brush time of two minutes. Based on the claims by Blizzident toothbrush, a conventional tooth brushing technique takes 20 times as long to complete!

So how does the Blizzident toothbrush work? Visit a dentist to have your teeth scanned. The impressions of your teeth will be brought to a dental laboratory to create a Blizzident toothbrush, which essentially looks like oversized plastic retainers with bristles sticking out from every direction.

Insert the custom made Blizzident toothbrush into your mouth and grind and chomp at it for six seconds as the bristles brush against your teeth at all kinds of angles at the same time. According to the inventors of the Blizzident toothbrush, the technique not only saves time, it also eliminates human error. The Blizzident does not miss any spots or faces of your teeth. It also avoids brushing gums too aggressively.

"The intent was to create a tool that simply cleans perfectly everywhere. The six-second brushing time was just a side effect of the invention, but that was not even intended," describes Chris Martin, a spokesman for Blizzident

The Blizzident's efficiency and thoroughness is unmatched in the dental care market. However, the product comes at a cost. The initial dental impression may cost as much as $200. The first Blizzident you purchase will cost $299. Subsequent replacements will cost $159. Blizzident toothbrush replacements are suggested annually.
