Like learning to write, brushing teeth also requires a delicate motion. Learning through practising is the key. It is however different from learning how to write with a copybook; brushing teeth is an invisible experience. Children cannot see how the toothbrush moves inside their mouths.


‘Wisebrush’ aims to explore an engaging way to encourage children to learn how to brush their teeth properly. It enables children to sense the way they brush teeth with instant musical feedback. The specially designed toothbrush encourages them to learn how to hold the toothbrush in the right way.
