A New Oral-B Triumph Toothbrush

The powered or "electric toothbrush" continues to evolve and improve.

The latest effort from Crest and Oral-B is an example of this continued evolution. Called the Oral-B Triumph with SmartGuide, it takes the idea of brushing feedback to a whole new level. The brush comes with a wireless "SmartGuide" display unit that shows the patient what quadrant they should be brushing, the amount of time elapsed, a brush head replacement indicator, and a pressure sensor alert which advises the user when they are applying too much pressure during brushing.

This is the first brush I've seen that provides *visual* feedback for the user. A very innovative approach.
