To date, the Y-Brush is the greatest mouthpiece toothbrush I’ve seen and tested. The brushing results were pleasantly surprising. It’s better than not brushing at all, but it’s not quite up to the task of replacing your traditional toothbrush just yet. With a few tweaks, a ten-second toothbrush might be the way of the future.
The Y-Brush looks like a sports mouthguard with nylon bristles inside. The motor in the small trapezoid-shaped handle vibrates to clean all of your teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth at the same time.
The toothbrush has undergone in-vitro testing as well as consumer testing with a panel of 3,000 people. In the following months, the Y-Brush will be put through a clinical trial in France. While the Y-Clean is altering the way you brush your teeth, flossing should still be done on a regular basis.
What Is the Y-Brush?
Traditionally, manual and electric toothbrushes need you to spend at least two minutes brushing your teeth, one tooth at a time. This procedure is standard globally yet is nonetheless inefficient and time-consuming. Y-Brush, a French company, spent five years developing its namesake electric toothbrush.
How Does the Y-Brush Work?
ABS, a lightweight material, is used to make the Y-Brush. Despite its big mouthpiece, it is easy and convenient to store. This material also permits the unit’s sonic vibrations to be transmitted, which are critical to the cleaning process.
The five-second brush is started by pressing a circular button on the handle. LEDs surround it, providing information on the brushing style, charge, and vibration mode. There are three vibration modes available: light, normal, and severe. The soft setting allows for a 15-second brush, while the usual setting allows for a 10-second brush.
Brush heads should be replaced every six months, or every six months if using an electric toothbrush. There’s also no need to worry about wasting toothpaste; the Y-Brush comes with a nozzle that should fit most major toothpaste containers, allowing you to apply the perfect quantity of paste.
