A new toothbrush concept called the Benjamin Brush is making waves on Kickstarter, where it has already raised $16,1449 as of this writing, far surpassing its goal of $10,000. The brush is the first to offer its own integrated music store where users can download their favorite music from an extensive library for 99 cents per song.
The brush comes in two parts: the smart base and the interchangeable heads.
The Smart Base
The base of the brush holds the motor and speakers. It’s waterproof and can be charged via USB. The sonic vibe technology provided by the motor in the smart base boasts thousands of pulsations per minute. It also vibrates every 30 seconds to help remind brushers to move on to the next section of their mouth.
The Interchangeable Heads
There are two options when it comes to the actual brush portion of the product. The Pom-Pom Brush is made for toddlers and young children. Its round shape and omnidirectional design make it easier and more efficient for little brushers. The Big Brush is made for older kids and adults. The bristles of both brush heads are different from your typical nylon bristled brush. They’re made of soft, flexible silicon to protect enamel and offer a more hygienic, bacteria-resistant solution.
According to London-based company BleepBleeps, creator of the Benjamin Brush, the company’s entire line of family-oriented, connected devices were designed to get everyone more excited for brushing their teeth and to encourage good brushing habits.
The smartphone app helps users keep track of how long and how often the brush is used, helping parents monitor and encourage healthy habits. The brand encourages playful competition or incentive-based rewards as a way to make brushing fun for kids of all ages.
At Collins Family Dentistry, we love anything that helps encourage healthier habits and makes oral hygiene more fun for kids and adults alike. Don’t forget, no matter how perfect your oral hygiene routine is, it’s still important to get a professional cleaning and exam every six months.
