If you are anything like us, you will know that when that dentist appointment comes up (because you have to go at least every year out of fear that your teeth will fall out) you dread it the whole week. The dentist is truly the bane of life (no offence to any dentists out there) and instills fear in the hearts of young children and fully grown adults alike.
But, Dr Sunny Sihra from London, UK has launched an app that may reduce the number of visits you pay the dentist.
Dentii is bringing technical and design innovation to the $37 billion global oral care market with its sleek black electronic toothbrush that maps the geometry of the person's mouth, plus the pressure and brushing path, which then connects to an app. The person is able to connect the app to their dentist, sending them the information to analyse, and inform their patients of possible areas of their mouth they may be missing and how to improve their dental health.
It also promotes an early detection of problems to prevent any serious procedures or complications. Dr Sihra has plans to advance the technology to the point of being able to detect oral cancer in its first stages.
The startup raised its £40 000 target within just five days. The electric toothbrushes are available in Anodised Aluminium, Silver, Gold or Rose Gold versions. The bases are designed from wood finishes, making the brush stand out and look elegant. There is a smaller, travel-sized version for those who have been bitten by the travel bug.
