There are so many toothbrushes on market that everybody should find their own which meets their own expectations. I have had a "thing" to toothbrushes since I was a kid. I always had to have the prettiest and most unique one. This way I didn't go to bed without brushing my teeth or sprint out of the door without brushing my teeth in the mornings.
My mind was literally blowing when I saw the most fanciest and smartest toothbrush- Blue Illume.
When you first look at it you'll a simple good quality tooth brush. It is designed by hand, so it is very comfortable to hold. It has rubbery texture all over the handle, so it won't slide out of your hand. Brush head is simple and has medium strenght bristles, cleans everything without adding too much unnecessary pressure on your teeth.
The main feature of Blue Illume is its two little lamps inside the brush. You can lit them when pushing the button on the handle. These lamps are using the blue light that acts with your oxide components in toothpaste and in time it gives cleaner, fresher and wither smile. To get maximum results, it can be used with toothpaste that contains baking soda (or Hydrogen Peroxide), but that isn't recommended for a long term use.
Another mind making point is a study where scientists discovered that blue light tools can kill even more bacteria than ordinary toothbrushes.
The research, published in the April Journal of Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, suggests that light in the blue region of the visible spectrum might be useful in preventing, controlling, or treating periodontitis - an oral infection that can lead to loss of bone and teeth.
"Some of the key bacterial pathogens associated with periodontitis produce and accumulate compounds that are sensitive to light," said Nikos Soukos, director of the Forsyth Laboratory of Applied Molecular Photomedicine and the principal investigator. "We found that, when exposed to particular wavelengths of light, a percentage of those pathogens was eradicated within seconds."
I have have used this toothbrush constantly over one month now. Blue Illume promises that teeth will be noticeably cleaner and fresher after at least on month of usage. I personally really noticed some results after few brushes. Apart from the fact that this tool is extremely fun to use in the dark, brush glowing in the mouth, my teeth felt cleaner during the day and after every wash. Amount of dental plague after long day was smaller than ever. Now I don't panic when I am out of gum in the middle of the day.
The last point I have to make is about my tongue. I have noticed that it hasn't got that white residue on it anymore. I was more than surprised, because having my allergies and problems with my sinuses I didn't get rid of it even if I wanted to.
I am continuing to use my Blue Illume and see where it is going, because I am extremely pleased with this toothbrush.
This brush is available in Blue Illume website.
With the shipping fee the total price should be about 19 EUR. It is totally worth the money for such a good quality toothbrush.
