Do you have enough (and the right technique) to brush your teeth? Perhaps not if you are like most men. According to Talo, over 50% of Americans have gum disease, which is caused by how people brush – not up-and down – in a side-to-side motion. Talo is an intelligent, half-mouth toothbrush that fits in to your mouth and claims about 20 seconds to cleanse your teeth.
Most importantly, the Talo uses the Bass Technique recommended by the American Dental Association it holds the brush at a 45-degree angle to the front of the tooth to achieve the ideal motion to clean not only the front but the sides of teeth.
The bristles move along a set of guides that allow them to reach all parts of your mouth. There is no movement required of the user; just hold the brush in place for ten seconds, remove it, and switch positions. The Talo smart toothbrush does the work for you. According to the company, this is the only toothbrush that replicates the “gold standard” of brushing and is able to tackle your teeth in just 20 seconds.
How to Buy?
The Talo smart toothbrush is expected to retail for $195, but is currently on Kickstarter with an early bird pledge of $120. The company also offers add-ons to your purchase like additional cartridges. Be aware that pledging money to a Kickstarter is not a guarantee of production or delivery.
