French startup FasTeesH has announced that it has begun shipping its mouthpiece-type toothbrush Y-Brush, which finishes brushing in just 10 seconds. Y-Brush raised $ 165,000 in the crowdfunding service Indiegogo in the summer of 2018, and then brushed up the design. Many readers will be interested in what kind of high tech is being used to complete brushing in 10 seconds, but seeing is believing, or the mechanism is obvious at a glance. A brush made of nylon is heavily implanted on the surface of the mouthpiece that comes in contact with the teeth, and you can apply toothpaste, then insert the piece into the upper or lower teeth and press the button on the grip. After that, it brushes from the front teeth to the back teeth at once by the principle of the sonic vibration toothbrush.
To finish in 10 seconds means that if you polish the top and bottom 5 seconds at a time, you will be able to get a sufficiently clean tooth. Three vibration modes are available. The battery is rechargeable, and once charged, it can be used for about a month without recharging.
The brush that has two sizes for children (4 to 12 years old) and adults needs to be replaced every 6 months, and it may be a bottleneck that $ 30 (about 3240 yen) is required for each brush Maybe. If all four families use Y-Brush, they will spend 13,000 yen every six months. In addition, I am a little worried that if the teeth are not aligned properly, the polishing will not be uneven.
Also, if you want to do it this way, you can use the mouthpiece brush in both directions up and down and bite it lightly to brush all the teeth up and down, front and back and left and right. I do not know if it is being developed, but I would like to expect an improved type to appear.
The price of the kit including the Y-Brush body, charger, brush storage case, etc. starts at $ 125 (about 13,500 yen). Considering that the price of an electric toothbrush is more than 20,000 yen, the initial cost is average. It may be worth using if you want to eat much more delicious rice without getting dentured and fuzzy even after retirement.
