Y-Brush – A Smarter Toothbrush That Only Needs 10 Seconds

Y-Brush CloseupAbout 90 percent of case studies show that teeth brushing is done incorrectly. Health professionals make different recommendations from country to country. Teeth should be brushed for two to three minutes, twice a day. However, with the Y-Brush, it’s now possible to brush your teeth effectively in 10 seconds instead of two minutes.

Recently, the French company FasTeesh started selling the brush that cleans all your teeth in just 10 seconds. Fast forward to this year, the framework of the electronics fair CES 2021, the Y-Brush is back. It’s developed in close collaboration with dentists for over four years, and it’s able to brush teeth efficiently in only 10 seconds.

Unlike the regular, non-electrical toothbrush, Y-Brush’s patented technology cleans the teeth of the user in-depth, for adults and children alike. The electric toothbrush features a flexible gum shield lined with nylon bristles on one side, attached to a square power base.

The way that the electric toothbrush works is similar to the regular electric toothbrush. Instead of moving the little head of a toothbrush from tooth per tooth over two minutes, the special new device brushes all of the top teeth simultaneously for five seconds and then the bottom for the same amount of time. The toothbrush resembles a sports mouthguard that’s packed with nylon bristles. The motor that’s precisely installed in the handle of the brush conveys vibrations to a nylon bristle brush. In return, it moves to efficiently clean the gums, gum lines, and of course, the teeth all at once in the upper and lower part of the mouth.

The nylon bristles are fine enough to reach in between the teeth. They produce a deep clean and careful elimination of dental plaque. The brushes of the new Y-Brush are very flexible and therefore adaptable to jaws of all shapes and sizes, allowing for complete coverage of all of the teeth. It has three different vibration modes: soft (15 seconds), normal (10 seconds), and intense (5 seconds), and it comes with a charging stand. The battery is rechargeable, and a full charge lasts up to three months.

This Creepy Giant Squid Was Found Washed up in South Africa

As if the oceans weren’t terrifying enough, this giant squid washed onto shore in South Africa as a reminder of how scary the deep waters are. Passers-by couldn’t believe their eyes when they came across this colossus along the shoreline.

Giant of the Deep

On June 7, this giant squid washed ashore on a South African beach, amazing beachgoers. The squid measured in at 14 feet long and was estimated to weigh between 440 and 660 pounds. There have only been a handful of giant squids to wash up on our shores, and the one from South Africa isn’t thought to be fully-grown. It is around two years old and still had some time before reaching maturity.

Trying to Help the Squid

Richard Davies was one of the people who discovered the squid on the beach, and he explained to News 24 that he and others tried to roll it into the sea. Davies explained that he could tell the squid was in trouble, but there was nothing they could do. The squid was too heavy for the people to roll into the water, so they had to leave it for marine biologists. Davies explained there was still some life left in the squid when he saw it because it grabbed him with one of its suckers.

Nothing They Could Do

The squid passed away, and it will be examined by scientists to understand more about this species. The giant squid is an elusive animal, and one was only caught on camera for the first time in 2006. It’s thought that giant squids are found in all of the world’s oceans, but beaching events like this are rare.

Scientists do plan on figuring out what brought the giant squid to the South African shore. They say that once the lockdown rules have been eased, a team of marine biologists will determine what ended this young squid’s life.
