'Toothscan' is a high-tech device that helps consumers monitor the health of their teeth on a daily basis. While the device is still in the development stage, the tiny tooth scanner could transform the oral care industry.

Toothscan is a smart device that is only about the size of an ordinary toothbrush. Despite its unassuming exterior, the device is equipped with cutting-edge technology that allows users to keep an electronic diary of the health of their teeth. More specifically, the device uses the spectroscopy method to detect inconsistent wavelengths that could indicate potential problems. This allows the device to identify issues such as cavities and other problem areas that may require dental intervention later on. All of this information is sent to an accompanying app via Bluetooth, which allows users to keep track of their oral health over time.

The device empowers consumers to take their oral care into their own hands by giving them an tool for checking on the health of their teeth at any time.
