Smart Toothbrush Detector

A waterproof pinhole wide-angle lens is set at the head of toothbrush, which can observe the distribution of bacteria in the oral cavity. When the toothbrush detects bacteria, it will remind the user to improve the cleaning action by vibration. Meanwhile, photos of oral cavity will be taken and showed in the APP for user to easily understand the dental condition. Mouthwash can be filled in the toothbrush grip. After brushing, users can turn to mouth washing mode. The mouthwash will be sprayed out of the holes among the toothbrush bristles; it can reduce the occurrence of periodontal disease and offers a comprehensive oral care.
