Most toothbrushes (yes.. even the fancy ones) are primitive and ineffective. We just move plaque and bacteria around hoping to spit it out after. If you look at innovation of other industries, there’s drastic progress; for example in facial care, light therapy is commonly used to promote healing and kill bacteria. It is time to break lose from conventional toothbrushing and enter a new era of at-home oral care!
Bristl is simplistic on the outside, but packed with tech on the inside:
Still not sure? No worries. The Journal of Periodontology reported a study where patients undergoing gum treatment used Bristl. They found that compared to brushing with a conventional electric toothbrush, brushing with Bristl using light therapy was more effective by:
Light therapy was discovered by a scientist by the name Niels Finsen almost a hundred years ago for which he won the Nobel Prize in Medicine. Light therapy is nothing new to healthcare - similar red and blue lights are often used in facial care to kill bacteria and heal/tighten skin. Bristl is bringing effective light therapy to the normal toothbrushing routine.
Risks and challenges
Although every project has its risks, the Bristl team is confident that we have minimized all possible risks. We are working with an industry leading custom manufacturer that has impressive experience and is extremely reliable. In short, we can confidently say that you will receive the best product we can deliver in a timely manner.
A large amount of resources have been dedicated to development, prototyping, and manufacturability. We cannot wait to get this product in our backers' hands! We have surpassed the prototype phase and have had samples manufactured in a "mass-produced" fashion to ensure high quality at scale. On top of this, our supply chain has been tested and has a 100% success rate of on time delivery.
All our ducks are in a row (..a very straight and well tested row), and now we just need support from backers to push this business into reality.
The risks we face are those that every business faces. For example, there is always a risk of hazardous shipping conditions from overseas. There also may be a risk of domestic shipping damage. Don't worry! If that happens, we'll replace any products that have been damaged during shipping. While we feel it is very minimal, there is always a risk of faulty electrical wiring. Again, if this is the manufacturer's error, we will certainly replace damaged products.
We're excited and will keep backers informed every step of the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
