Smart toothbrush connects to the Internet to scrub germs, cavities

A French startup’s Internet-connected toothbrush syncs with a smartphone app that records how well you’ve brushed and if you missed any spots. It could be especially helpful for parents who want to monitor kids’ brushing habits, they said.

The idea is not to brush stronger, but smarter.”

The Kolibree toothbrush includes a sensor which detects how much tartar is being removed in a brushing. It also records brushing activity so users can maintain a consistent cleaning each time.

The device conveys the information wirelessly to a smartphone app — a particularly useful aid for parents who want to monitor the teeth cleaning efforts of small children, according to Cessot.
