All Blizzident-bristles are tailored to your own teeth. They are placed on the surface of your teeth in a 45 degree angle. They are also aligned exactly along your gumline in a 45 degree angle.
Additionally there are interdental bristles between all your teeth.
For tailoring we use a 3D model of your teeth (created from an impression or scan of your teeth by your dentist).
Perfect toothbrushing made simple
The bristles are tailored and positioned on every single tooth in a way so they are brushing with the "Modified Bass"- and "Fones"-techniques simply by biting and grinding for a few seconds. "Modified Bass"- and "Fones"-techniques are recommended by dentists and prophylaxis assistants worldwide.
By biting you brush according to the "Modified Bass"-technique. This cleans the gingival sulcus (the space underneath the gumline) especially well, while also cleaning all other surfaces perfectly. You simply bite and release quickly 10-15 times. This creates the little vibrating / jiggling upwards/downwards / slightly circling movements of the "Bass"-technique (while the bristles are placed in a 45 degree angle, which also automatically stops the biting movement softly). This cleaning-action along the gumline is also called "Sub-Gingival Bass Technique", and is recommended by dental hygiene experts worldwide (but is really difficult to apply by hand).
By grinding (left-right and backward-forwards), while your teeth are closed, you brush according to the "Fones"-technique. This additionally cleans the top surfaces of your molars.
On the simulation-picture to the right you see how nicely the brushes clean exactly along the gumline. They clean exactly where they must (shown in white color), and nowhere else (not on other gum surfaces - here still in green color).
Opening your mouth causes the gumline-bristles to additionally wipe dirt out (according to the "wipeout"-movement of the "Modified Bass"-technique).
All teeth perfectly brushed in 6 seconds
Because you are brushing all your teeth at the same time, you are brushing extremely quickly. You brush all the difficult-to-reach and interdental regions without even having to think about it.
After 6 seconds brushing time all your teeth are already perfectly clean. The white teeth on the picture to the right have been whitened by simulating brushing for 6 seconds only. 6 Blizzident-seconds equal approximately 3 minutes brushing time with a manual toothbrush. (10 Blizzident-seconds equal 6 minutes manual brushing).
Toothbrushing user errors eliminated
Traditional manual and electric toothbrushes clean only as well as your brushing technique and discipline is. And even with a good technique, there are always regions you cannot reach, because of the geometry of your manual/electric toothbrush and bristles.
Blizzident eliminates all those user errors completely. Just by biting a couple of times, you clean everywhere, and with perfect technique.
Blizzident bristle pressure is always the same, and within the correct limits. Whereas, when you brush by hand, often too much pressure is applied, and gums and teeth are harmed. And if not enough pressure is applied, the cleaning effect is reduced.

One Blizzident lasts 1 year
There are ca. 800 bristles in one Blizzident. This is many times more than in an ordinary toothbrush. Therefore the Blizzident lasts many times longer (because every single bristle has many times less work to do).
We recommend replacing it with a new Blizzident toothbrush every 12 months (after we tailored a Blizzident to your teeth, replacement Blizzidents cost only a fraction of the price of a new one, and they can be sent to you automatically).
Floss while brushing your teeth
There are even holes/slits for dental floss. You can route dental floss through these slits and it is perfectly positioned in your interdental regions: when you bite and grind, you are flossing at the same time. The handle of the Blizzident serves as a container for a dental floss role. (Bristles have been made transparent in the picture to the right).
The positions of the "floss-slits" and the bristles provide a move-stop and thus guarantee that floss can only be applied with correct, limited pressures and distances, in the right places (whereas, when flossing by hand, often gums are harmed by applying too much force, and in the wrong places - especially in the more difficult-to-reach places of the teeth).
When biting and grinding, you move your jaws slightly to the right and left and forwards/backwards: through these motions floss hugs around the teeth and goes below the gumline of the left and right tooth in a precisely controlled way.

Clean tongue while brushing your teeth
Tongue cleaning is much more important than many people think. It prevents bad breath and dental caries (tongue bacteria enforce dental caries).
Therefore just above the position of the tongue a combined tongue scraper + brush (red arrow pointing to the scraper edge in the picture to the right) is located.
Thus, while brushing your teeth, your tongue is cleaned almost automatically at the same time, if you want. Because the scraper + bristles are located well above tongue position, you can always decide by yourself, whether you want to lift/press your tongue against the scraper and bristles or not.
