Would You Brush Your Teeth With This Tongue-Mounted Toothbrush?
As I type, I’m trying to clear some residual pita chip from off my furthest right molar, and I’m wondering why this process has to be so damn hard. I mean, wouldn’t life be so much better if someone would just invent some kind of plastic bristled tongue glove that would clear food away perfectly and completely the first time around, all without ever having to whip out a toothbrush?
Oh look, someone did.
Apparently Edmonton-based Adel Elseri and Said Fayad invented the T2T (Tongue To Teeth) out of a desire for better hygiene. “You don’t use your hands, hygiene is key,” Elseri explained to the producer of Canada’s Dragons’ Den TV show.
Currently out on its “first run” in Canada, the bristly device is coated with toothpaste and designed to slip over a person’s tongue to clean the inside of the mouth and teeth.
Imagine being able to practice careful oral hygiene on the go without having everyone stare at you like some kind of gross, crazy person. Or at least, without having everyone stare at you like some kind of gross, crazy person a lot.
Sigh, that’ll be the day.
