Bite down for 6 seconds and your chompers will be minty fresh! Replaces brush, floss, and tongue scraper all at once.

I will have to ask my dentist about Blizzident. It is made with LASERS!

How to get a Blizzident:

To make the brush, the dentist takes an impression of all your teeth (with biting position) or scans them directly (thus creating a digital 3D model directly) and thenĀ uploaded to Blizzident. The makers need to find out the optimal placement of 600 bristles by simulating biting and chewing movements and then create a computer aided design (CAD) model of the brush accordingly. The brush is then printed out using 3D printing, to be precise here, stereolithography technology, which employs a vat of liquid ultraviolet curable photopolymer "resin" and an ultraviolet laser to build parts' layers one at a time.
