Think about where your hands have been today. Why would you use them to clean your teeth? This invention by Adel Elseri and Said Fayad abandons the common toothbrush design for a radical new one. The two inventors recently demonstrated their tongue-mounted toothbrush on a Canadian TV show:
“You don’t use your hands, hygiene is key,” Elseri told producer Priscilla Sreedharan during his pitch.
The 26-year-old boilermaker said he was driving home from a 12-hour shift working in Fort McMurray when he was struck with the idea for a device to help people who are on the go freshen their mouths and clean their teeth. He’s now developed a prototype for T2T, which stands for Tongue To Teeth. The device slips over a person’s tongue, has a coating of toothpaste, and can be used to clean the inside of one’s mouth.
