ToothShower In-Shower Oral Care Solution

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2017-11-22

Do away with flossing with the ToothShower In-Shower Oral Care Solution. It starts with the base that attaches to your shower wall, but the real magic lies in the three attachments that clean 100% of your tooth surfaces. Regular toothbrushing only brushes 60% of your tooth surfaces and misses between your teeth. First, there is a dual-headed toothbrush which brushes both the front and the back of your teeth simultaneously. Second is an irrigating tip that actually enables you to skip your flossing step. It behaves as a water flosser without the mess. Because you are in the shower, you don’t have to worry about cleaning your mirror or countertop. Third, there’s an innovative gum massager with seven irrigating jets of water to stimulate important blood flow to your gums while removing debris between your teeth in just 6 seconds. In addition, you can incorporate a mouth rinse to kill germs and freshen breath and there is a comfort pressure dial to adjust the water pressure. This is all done with no batteries or electricity. Easy to set-up, the ToothShower is thorough and even works with people who are wearing braces.

Hello,
Thank you for backing ToothShower and your patience! We have been using an early production sample to clean our teeth and gums and the ToothShower is working great. We feel like we just left a dental cleaning! In the next few weeks we will receive a quantity of pre-production samples for testing and limited use by a small group of our engineers and ToothShower staff. Feedback from using those units will contribute to the last round of product tweaks! One of our accessories continues to challenge our engineers which we have consulted outside experts for some further assistance. Currently we feel shipping to backers could begin in September and we are trying very hard to keep this expectation. Lisa

If a backer would like to go back in and make another purchase on the Backerkit site once they have completed their survey, they may need me to do it for me. Please let me know if assistance is needed.

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for backing ToothShower! Some of the add-one are what your ToothShower will include such as the standard irrigating tip, dual-headed toothbrush and the irrigating gum massager. There are four other new attachments you can choose from and each of those will have an explanation on the BackerKit site. If you find you need more of an explanation please feel free to ask.

Hi, great the survey will be here soon. Regarding the add-ons are they different to what we have purchased? Can you explain a bit about each add-on so we can make a decision? Thanks, Elizabeth

Hello, thank you so much for being a fan of ToothShower! The Nebia shower looks interesting and we would be willing in the future to discuss an adapter that works with our product and theirs. But at this time our diverter valve will not screw into their hand wand connector.

Review from Kickstarter
SOOOO excited for this, ive always thought they should be in the shower, where i normally do my brushing anyway. I am curious about the installation though, i have a nebia shower head and it replaces those typical heads. can you look into different installation method adapters? i know the nebia wand would be a good place to connect but it uses a pneumatic type plug

Hi Drake, a mouthwash with fluoride would be good if you are brushing your teeth and not using toothpaste. A mouthwash that kills germs would be good to use at the end of your mouth cleaning to flush between your teeth and then not to rinse after. This would leave a residue of the germ fighting mouth rinse to be effective for a longer period of time.
Drake
Review from Kickstarter
Do you recommend a mouthwash to use with the device?

Review from Kickstarter
The psi of plug-in countertop water flossers are advertised as 10-100 psi, setting 10 being the 100. Cordless, battery operated water flossers are advertised as 45-75 psi. ToothShower's psi will depend on your household water pressure. Household water pressure is noted to be from 25-75 psi, and can be adjusted. Clinical evidence states water flossing to be effective at a low or high psi.
Astrobia
Review from Kickstarter
What is the maximum pressure like compared to motorised waterpicks?
Also thanks for your answers so far.

Hi Astrobia,
By the time we have delivered the product to all of the backers in May 2018, we will have an e-commerce store. The dual-headed toothbrush ($9.00) will need to be replaced every 3-6 months. Irrigating tip ($4.00), replace every 6-12 months and the gum massager ($20.00) replace every 6-12 months. All of the attachments and more will be available on our store and be shipped directly to you.
Astrobia
Review from Kickstarter
I see. What sort of options will be available for replacing the different attachments after the campaign? That is what are the expected price and shipping options for replacements and where do we find them?
Lisa Guenst
Review from Kickstarter
Hello Astrobia, Thank you for your interest in ToothShower! Great questions:
The ToothShower was designed to make cleaning between your teeth where your toothbrush is missing easy and enjoyable. Many people never clean between their teeth due to not liking string floss or finding a water flosser makes a mess all over their bathroom countertop and mirror. Gum disease really takes hold between the teeth, so even if you clean in there 3-4 times a week it will help prevent and treat gum disease. You are not swallowing the water and it is the same water that is used at other water sources in your home. If you would like to end your water flossing with an antiseptic mouth rinse you can. The mouth rinse reservoir can incorporate an undiluted antiseptic between your teeth directly, through the attachments, once you have completed your water flossing.
Astrobia
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Lisa. With hygiene experts now saying we already shower too often and that unless you work in a particularly filthy job with chemical/biohazards you people in the west should not be showering everyday... And oral experts encourage us to brush 3 times a day... I guess my question is how effective is this complete oral care solution when you are only in the shower 3-4 times a week? Also does stuff like rust and other impurities from hot water systems promote any problems? Is there a need to rince with filtered/treated water after?
Lisa Guenst
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Timothy, thank you for your interest in ToothShower! Do you mean the bathtub water instead of the shower water? Or do you mean another water source for another shower head?
Lisa Guenst
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Don, thank you for your interest in ToothShower! On our KS page, about two-thirds of the way down, is a 6 step guide to installation and we have an installation video on Youtube at Toothshower, LLC https://youtu.be/kVCrbw9l8QU
There is a wall plate that attaches to your shower wall with water resistant adhesive strips. The ToothShower is hooked onto that. When you move you unlock the ToothShower from the wall plate and then pull the adhesive strips to unlock the wall plate. The plate can be reattached to your new shower with two new water resistant adhesive strips. That's it, very easy.

@Creator Can the water inlet be attached to the bottom tap instead of the top shower instead?

Hi Abhisek, Thank you for your compliments! Answers to your questions below: 1) You can apply toothpaste to the side of the bristles or have a fluoridated mouth rinse in the reservoir that can be incorporated while you are brushing.
2) A portable ToothShower has been requested often but at this time we do not have plans for one, but will keep it in mind for the future.
3) If you would like to contact us closer to May 2018, we could discuss a pick-up.
Abhishek
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Lisa, First of let me say this is a great product. Hats off to the team behind this. I have a few queries though- 1) Do we need to apply Toothpaste separately with this or is there some method to have an input with ToothShower? (Liquid Paste in the Mouthwash space or so) 2) One concern that I have is the portability part. I travel often and thus, my concern is would there be any way to make this product more travel-friendly. It would be great if you could provide some input on this. My suggestion would be a travel kit and reattachable mounts. 3)Lastly, would it be possible to pick up the product from Philadelphia. That would reduce the shipping cost which would be helpful for locals. Thanks in advance.

Hi Ruben, thank you for backing ToothShower! Our User Manual will address how ToothShower, LLC guarantees to the original purchaser of this product that it is free from defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year from the date of purchase. The toothbrush is recommended to be replaced every 3-6 months. If it is found faulty prior to its recommended replacement date due to defects in materials or workmanship, ToothShower, LLC will send a replacement brush out.

Hi! I've just backed your project. I have a question, how are you planning to go through any technical issue or faulty toothbrush after the 30days warranty stuff? Thank you
Lisa Guenst
Review from Kickstarter
Thank you for your interest and questions. Yes, you can run a solution through the device to disinfect or de-mineralize as necessary, the instructions will be in the User Manual. Brushing the top (chewing surface) of the teeth and brushing the tongue can be performed with the silicone bristles on the back of the head of the toothbrush. About halfway down on our campaign page there is a short video of the toothbrush being used on a plastic mouth model. In that video you can see the silicone bristles on the back of the toothbrush head.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, can we clean the inside of it? If yes, Is it easy to clean the inside? And the toothbrush only brush the front and the back of teeth, what about the top surface?
Lisa Guenst
Review from Kickstarter
The psi of household water can range from 25-75. A cordless water flosser (battery operated) can range from 45-75 psi. A countertop water flosser (electrical outlet) can range from 10-100 psi. Water flossing is shown to be effective at low or high psi, it is personal preference. This comment was asked before, see other comments.

Review from Kickstarter
Thank you for your interest in ToothShower! Yes, the accessory attachments will need to be replaced. The Dual-headed toothbrush, every 3-6 months at $9.00. The irrigating tip ($4.00) every 6-12 months and the same with the gum massager ($20.00).
Drake
Review from Kickstarter
Love this idea! How much will the replacements be?

Review from Kickstarter
@Creator can u make a comparison on the levels of pressure when flossing with water please? Like for example Levels 1-3 on the Waterpik Aquarius Machine is = to Level 1 on ToothShower..... I currently use Level 9 - 10 on my Waterpik to be sure I'm getting out all the waste food between my teeth. So I just want to make sure the ToothShower can provide that too......

Review from Kickstarter
Thank you everyone for your compliments about our project!
Joel, thank you for your interest in ToothShower! Mechanical engineers, industrial designers, business consultants and myself as a dental hygienist have been working on this project for over three years. We have thought this project through very thoroughly with many prototypes and design iterations. along with winning to significant business plan competitions. Testing has been performed and much more will be performed after tooling is completed and tooled samples are made available. As with many crowdfunding projects some changes may be made along the way but our technology is a proven concept. Water flossing is proven to be effective in treating and preventing gum disease (gingivitis). We have taken the concept and moved it to a convenient location to make it easier and more enjoyable to do. We have designed innovative features that create a suite of oral home care tools in one place. We have tested these features over and over and believe we can bring this product to the consumer very close to what you see here. As our successful crowdfunding comes to an end we will be moving into tooling and production right away. We are aware of the Chinese holidays and have taken them into consideration with our May delivery date.
As far as your shower wall surface, our adhesive strips are made to be water resistant and adhere to shower walls, in addition there are options to fix the mounting plates with very small screws if the user desires, so there should not be a problem. We are offering a 30 day money back guarantee if you would have a problem.

We plan to pay for and use BackerKit for our surveys, but not for the reasons that you have mentioned. Kickstarter reward surveys do collect shipping information, but there is a lot more to the post-campaign. For example, with BackerKit we can:
- Validate shipping addresses
- Ensure that backers who chose the incorrect country during Kickstarter pay the proper amount
- Easily filter and export our data into multiple formats for both production and fulfillment Overall, BackerKit acts as a much better platform for us to effectively manage our post-campaign so we can get you your ToothShower on time. Please let me know if you have any other questions and I hope this doesn't stop you from backing our campaign.

Review from Kickstarter
Ahh, I swore I wouldn't do this... For now, I'll back for a dollar since I have some questions and concerns to express. First off, if you were to provide this machine to us "as is", would production be reliable without spotting some sudden defect in your original plan after a third of the units were done with production? Have you already produced a handful of units and done quality assurance testing?
Are you aware of the holidays (some of which run for one month) in China, have you allotted time for that in your estimated delivery plans?
Are you ready to go from the crowdfunding phase directly into production?
Do you have any ideas on how you could make this better? (get them out now please, not in April) Also, a more personal question. My shower walls are a plasticy tile surface which is with some minor grooves in its surface. Will the wall unit still ply to the surface? I can private message some pictures if need be. As a superbacker, you can probably tell I've had this runaround with more than my fair share of delayed projects, some of which are more than many months beyond their estimated dates which have really led me to doubt the integrity of the creator and the quality of the project they are bringing to us. It's never fun to hear of a defect in the machinery or molding and seeing everything get delayed because of a month-long Chinese holiday is just plain demoralizing. It's to the point where I've lost hope in crowdfunding and just choose to keep an eye out for things on the store shelves and I feel like I'm not alone in this. I just want to know how ready you are to get going into production. It seems like a great product and something that I've been looking for personally for quite a while. I'm in my twenties and my dentist has said now for almost the past decade that I'm in the early stage of gingivitis because everytime his assistant flosses my teeth, my gums bleed so this product has a lot of appeal, just given poorly performing Kickstarters in the past, I'm quite hesitant. I might back this product, but I might just hold off, we'll see I guess. Good job on passing that goal, good luck on getting this out there, can't wait to see it. Looking forward to a reply, thanks.

Are you planning on using the Kickstarter reward surveys to collect information? As a Superbacker I have been disturbed by the practice of Creators using external surveys that then ask for an additional payment for the Backer reward because of the Creator's unexpected expenses. These same surveys also offer "add-ons" and other products. Kickstarter is not a retail space. I don't appreciate Backers that treat it as one. Since I have yet to come across this practice with a Creator that uses the reward survey system provided by Kickstarter, I've recently decided to only back Creators that plan on using it. Therefore, please let me know your plans for Backer reward surveys. Thank you.
