Consumer Video: DIY Dental Braces?

Heard of one recent trend? The ‘do-it-yourself’ dental braces stuff? Oww! Exciting??? Well, talk about ‘blind’ courage, let’s see this..

Just rubberbands, wow! While there are those who’d even blame ‘dentists’ for not supporting this ‘trend’ as for the supposed ‘money’ reasons, hey, the non-support is legitimate.

Wanting to save on dental procedures to beautify yourself may in fact hurt you.. yup, it could cost you not just better looks but more money for possible repairs. For one, since it’s rubberband, ‘alignment’ wouldn’t be that precise.. Got the point?

So, don’t try this. For your sake.

Obviously, toothbrushes are for cleaning our teeth and helping maintain its health, but how do you know that you are doing it correctly? That’s when the Kolibree Smart Toothbrush comes in.

Kolibree was developed to help monitor and improve the way we brush and care for our teeth. All we need to do is download the free mobile app and connect via Bluetooth then all brushing are recorded. The data then syncs with your smartphone and informs you on how effective you brushed your teeth, like if you reached hard to clean areas and if you brushed long enough. Good right?

This innovation sells from $99 to $200 each depending on the model. Would you want one?

Well, the good thing here is that the toothbrushes’ head are switchable, so this means you could buy one with several extra heads and the whole family benefits from this unique technology. Of course, it’s better not to switch heads to avoid hassle and stuff..

So, how about Kolibree lowering its price?
