The tongue2tooth hands-free toothbrush. Coated with toothpaste, it is slipped onto the tongue and used instead of a conventional toothbrush
Two Canadian friends have invented an entirely new way to brush your teeth – using your tongue. Adel Elseri and Said Fayad, both 26, say their invention is far more hygienic than a conventional toothbrush.
The disposable gadget, called T2T, which stands for Tongue To Teeth, slips over the tongue, and has a coating of toothpaste.
‘You don’t use your hands, hygiene is key,’ Elseri told the Montreal Gazette.
Elseri, a 26-year-old boilermaker said he was driving home from a 12-hour shift working in Fort mcmurray when he came up with the idea, he said.
The pair have already set up a Facebook page and Twitter account for their invention, and are currently auditioning for the Canadian version of Dragons Den, where they hope to raise $100,000 Canadian dollars to begin production.
The hands-free toothbrush is coated with toothpaste and is designed to be used once then thrown away.
They boast ‘We are the world’s first tongue mounted teeth cleaning product.’
