75 Dandy Dental Discoveries

From Toothbrushes to Innovative Dental Training

— August 4, 2010 — Lifestyle
The fact that George Washington's teeth weren't wooden is one of those dental discoveries worthy of note. But there are many more modern items of interest in the realm of teeth. From self-balancing toothbrushes to robotic dental patients, these Trend Hunter dental discoveries cover wide open territory.

Also, if you're curious, George Washington's teeth were partly made of Hippopatamus ivory.

Implications - The consumer addiction to technology has caused for a high demand of technological advancement and innovation in everyday items. The smallest thing--even a toothbrush--can be completely reinvented to incorporate new functions and features that save labor or increase novelty, ultimately making them more valuable in the eyes of the over-digitized consumer.
