Dentists say you're supposed to brush your teeth for 2 minutes at least twice a day. (We know you don't actually do this. We won't tell.)
Luckily there's a new 3D-printed toothbrush that lets you brush your teeth in 6 seconds. Also you don't even really brush your teeth. Your teeth kind of brush themselves.
This new wave in toothbrushes is called the Blizzident. It's made using a 3D printer based on a mold of your teeth that you have to get from your dentist. Here's what it looks like:
Once you get the Blizzident "you put a drop of toothpaste onto your tongue and move it over your upper teeth -- the now fluid toothpaste will additionally flow over your lower teeth automatically now," the product's site explains. Then you just bite down onto the Blizzident and chew for 6 seconds. That's it! Your teeth are now clean.
According to Blizzident, a lot of people don't brush their teeth the right way, and this new contraption removes the potential for "user error," since it does all the work for you.
The Blizzident costs $299, but only needs to be replaced once a year, while the ADA recommends you replace a regular toothbrush every 3 to 4 months.
