The world of 3D printing is on the rise as it transforms and intersects with burgeoning technology. Customization of everyday objects has come to the forefront as one the most promising and useful aspects of it all. The newest addition to the 3D family is the  Blizzident tooth-cleaning system created through both custom scanning and printing.

The cool thing about Blizzident is that it is shaped just like your teeth. You bite down for six seconds and proceed to have every single one of your teeth cleaned to perfection. The toothbrush jiggles up and down and side to side reaching difficult regions we often forget. The new toothbrush ensures a thorough clean with tongue scraping and optimum bristle pressures, easy flossing capabilities in 100% recyclable materials.

Getting a Blizzident toothbrush is accessible via dentist. You make an appointment to get an impression of your teeth. The impression is then sent to a dental lab, where they digitize the results, and upload/print your toothbrush. Blizzident retails at $300 and lasts for up to a year, which is 10 times more than a normal toothbrush.

When asked about the general age of the consumers, the company said; “The system would work for children, but would have to be updated as they grow and their mouths get bigger. That could get costly as even a replacement Blizzident costs $159. We will charge $89 for a ‘refurbished’ tooth cleaner. Until the end of puberty (until age 21) the body is still growing this  means the Blizzident has to be updated/modified with fresh impression/scan data on a yearly base until the age of 21.”

They also commented on the validity of their product and it’s results; “For those skeptical about a $300 teeth-brushing system that claims to cut brushing time down to six seconds  results from clinical trial should be published soon.”

Blizzident has made toothbrushing as easy as biting down and chewing now. The system promises an automatic, worry-free experience for mouths everywhere. Check out their promo video below.
