CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ONVI, a pioneer in innovative dental technology based in Chicago, today announced the launch of the first ever video toothbrush, Prophix, empowering people to track and improve their oral healthcare routine. The company’s premier product, Prophix pairs wirelessly to an iOS app* using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, allowing people to better see and understand their current oral health status while they brush.
ONVI founder Dr. Craig S. Kohler, D.D.S., M.B.A., M.A.G.D., is among the few dentists in the country that, for more than 20 years, has been using live video to record his dental procedures through microscopes, delivering premium care for his patients. His commitment to providing the best care for his patients using the most current technology motivated him to develop Prophix.
“As I used intraoral cameras and monitors to treat my patients, I saw how it helped them to better understand the status of their oral health, and in turn, adopt better cleaning habits,” said Dr. Kohler, founder and CEO, ONVI. “With today’s advancements in technology, it is finally possible to bring this never-before-seen dental solution into the home with Prophix.”
With Prophix, people are able to watch a live video feed that reveals the spots they miss as they brush. Consumers can also take and save pictures of areas of concern or interest, track their progress and see trends in their usage over time. Prophix also provides motivating tips to improve overall oral health care habits.
In addition, Prophix is sold with four interchangeable attachments to help consumers get the most out of their at-home cleaning routine:
- A rotating toothbrush
- A prophy cup, similar to what a dental hygienist uses for contour cleaning around the tooth and under the gum line
- A rubber tip to massage your gums, increase blood flow, and remove plaque and tartar, contributing to better gum health
- A mirror to see those hard-to-reach places
Prophix is scheduled to ship in the first quarter of 2017, and is now available for pre-order at a discounted price of $299 (retail price of $399). For shipping updates or to pre-order, visit www.GetProphix.com.
*App is currently compatible with iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5. Android app is in development.
