Y-Brush, a new toothbrushing technology

This is the story of a French start-up FasTeesH which made a simple observation: today, few people really brush their teeth for at least 2 minutes in the morning and evening.

The company developed a product that brushes teeth in 10 seconds as efficiently as would traditionally be possible in 2 minutes thanks to its new brushing technology. Called Y-Brush, this innovation was previewed at the 2020 CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, the world's premier trade show dedicated to technological innovation in electronics.

Healthy teeth and good oral health!

While Y-Brush works in a similar way to a conventional electric toothbrush, it is the shape that is completely innovative. A short ABS handle - a strong, lightweight plastic that complies with current health standards - is topped by a Y-shaped brush (hence the name), or rather in the shape of a denture or mouth guard. This shape is designed to brush all the teeth simultaneously, rather than one at a time.

The brush, made up of 35,000 nylon bristles, is placed directly in the mouth and does not require the usual brushing movements. The brush uses ultrasound to vibrate the bristles of the brush simultaneously up to 31,000 times per minute to remove tartar and bacteria, without damaging tooth enamel. 10 seconds is all it takes! It should be noted that this system is the only one on the market to use nylon bristles: they are 30 times finer than silicone bristles, and their 45° angle makes it possible to reach the most difficult to access areas.

The brush head is very malleable to suit all jaw shapes and comes in 2 sizes suitable for children from the age of 4 and adults. It also enables elderly or disabled people to brush their teeth easily and without assistance.

A single button on the handle of the Y-Brush allows users to select the desired brushing time: 5 (intensive mode), 10 (standard mode) or 15 seconds (gentle mode). The handle contains a battery that can be recharged overnight via USB cable, making it easy to take with you!

3 years of Research and Development (R&D) for a fast and automated toothbrush

This toothbrush was developed in France in collaboration with dentists over a period of 3 years, validated by numerous clinical tests and protected by several patents in France, Europe and even the world. The time of manual and electric toothbrushes is now over thanks to this new revolutionary device!
