Philips Debuts Electronic Toothbrush Plus Smartphone App

June 9, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Philips has unveiled an adult toothbrush that can be used with a smartphone app to tell brushing direction, angle, and brush pressure. The app collects the data, tracks it over time  and maps it against a 3D tooth image that can be used by a dental hygienist to instruct a patient in addressing trouble areas. Equipped with an accelerometer, gyros, and pressure sensors, the Sonicare Flexcare Platinum Connected brush has three brushing modes with different intensity levels, and a two-minute timer. The price of the new brush will be $199.99 and it will be available this summer.
