Maintenance Made Fun

Luxury and gimmicky toothbrush innovations illustrate the appeal of hygiene

Implications - A range of dental innovations have changed the act of brushing teeth, including child-geared products such as musical toothbrushes and happy face suction cups to make oral hygiene fun, to products that make the act more convenient such as pre-pasted and flossing toothbrushes.

Oral hygiene has improved dramatically in North America over the last four decades, due to an increase in awareness, education and dental innovation. There is a clear demand for products that make necessary tasks more convenient or enjoyable.
