    • It looks like a piece of junk from the video, but I think the biggest hurdle will be to train small children to do this required manuever:

      As it vibrates you make chewing motions for 5 seconds.

      It’s also not ADA approved as far as I can tell.

    • Hmm. I'm obviously not a dentist, but my understanding is that toothbrushing is beneficial in two primary ways:

      1. The physical act of brushing dislodges food and disrupts plaque on your teeth.

      2. Fluoride in toothpaste is left behind on the surface of your teeth and is also circulated in your saliva and helps remineralize and protect enamel, preventing cavities.

      The longer your teeth are exposed to fluoride, the more effective it is. This is why dentists typically recommend not rinsing your mouth with water after brushing your teeth. So if this device only exposes your teeth to fluoride for 10 seconds, that seems like a significant disadvantage compared to the usual recommendation of brushing your teeth for two minutes.

      It's also a good idea to brush your tongue since it harbors bacteria and can develop a biofilm that needs to be physically disrupted. This device doesn't seem to be able to do that.

      I think I'll stick to my toothbrush!

    • Too small for my dog and I am not at all sure he would be thrilled to be shut up in that little box that would be making noise and blowing hot air. I don't think even the window would help.

      But he does not like a blow dryer, hmm. I am a bit concerned that you can choose the heat level..... accidents immediately came to mind. And what if the door got stuck somehow? Too many variables. Plus the size I would need would make it a large piece of permanent furniture.
