Holiday candy, cookies and sweets in general seem to permeate this season, whether visiting relatives or visiting the cookie jar. If you are like me, then getting your kids to spend more than the cursory time it takes to put tooth paste on their brush and rub the toothbrush along their teeth is at times pure frustration.

Until now! “Kolibree is a connected electric toothbrush, equipped with vibrating technology to make brushing your teeth more efficient.  Its sensors interact with mobile apps for adults and children to make brushing an enjoyable experience. Kolibree helps the whole family learn about and improve their oral hygiene.” (kolibree.com) 

With a sleek and ergonomic one-button design, kids and adults alike will find the look and feel appealing. Couple that with the connection of the toothbrush’s internal sensors to the mobile application (which we can all agree kids find more exciting than brushing their teeth) and you have a powerhouse of unparalleled oral care. Then over time with the analysis that the application provides will help everyone in the family keep their teeth pearly white and hopefully the dentist bills down!

Now for the fun part of oral hygiene, the games! The 3D motion sensors inside the toothbrush connect via Bluetooth to smart phone devices and applications to help kids stay motivated to brush. How? Through a game that is actually controlled by the motion of the toothbrush. Adults can maintain the same level of motivation through the application with analytics on brushing sessions and tips from dentists.

For those other “gadget geeks” out there, Kolibree has built an open platform so that a community can be built around this toothbrush and the associated software. This “encourages 3rd party designers and developers to develop creative apps” and the open platform “encourages dental professionals to interact with their patients.”

The Gadget Geek cannot find anything negative to say about this revolutionary breakthrough in oral care. Checkout the spec sheet here. Go to the Kolibree website to order yours.
