Make Brushing Fun And Fancy
When you’re accustomed to living in the lap of luxury, only the best will do—and this holds true for personal care at any and every age. Tooth-brushing may be mandatory, but these plaque-and-cavity-fighting products prove that it doesn’t have to be mundane (or purchased at the drugstore).
Nothing makes brushing more fun than augmented reality, right? That’s what Kolibree is hoping with this yet-to-be-released high-tech electric toothbrush. Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this month, there’s already a waitlist, so click on the link above to get on it! In addition to keeping kids motivated with an actual augmented reality adventure, this smartbrush goes a step further by teaching them how to brush correctly based on sensors that track their movements. Gone are the days of parents asking their kids if they brushed their teeth because the companion app for grown-ups reveals how well they brush.
Don’t want to wait for the Magik? You can get Kolibree’s tooth-brushing tracking technology (minus the encouraging animation) with this collaboration between Colgate and Apple. This Bluetooth-enabled brush provides coaching as well as detailed analysis that includes time spent brushing, frequency, missed spots and more—all accessible via a simple dashboard on your iPhone.
Foreo ISSA Mini
As easy on the eyes as it is on the teeth and gums, this bacteria-resistant all-silicone toothbrush also offers positive reinforcement thanks to a smiley face that illuminates when the kiddos do a good job (and lets parents know as well). Designed for ages five and up, this sonic-powered brush fits perfectly into smaller hands and mouths—and with a range of colors it fits into any décor as well.
Foreo ISSA Micro
It’s never too early to establish good oral-hygiene habits, and this brush for the wee ones up to age five can be used as soon as that first tooth comes in. With a silicone head that keeps bacteria to a minimum plus one mode for brushing and another that massages to soothe teething pain, baby’s first toothbrush never looked so good.
Free of any chemicals (including fluoride) that kids can inevitably swallow while brushing, this chocolate-flavored toothpaste makes brushing a treat. Jealous parents, fret not… There’s an equally non-toxic supercharged version for adults called Theodent 300—but it will set you back more than $100 a tube.
