A new app lets your dentist get a good look at your mouth without you ever getting in the chair.

Oral-B has developed an app that enables your dentist to see every brush you make via Bluetooth connection:

As you brush, a video simulation on your phone guides your hand, showing you where to brush and how hard. The app will also offer helpful hints on how to get the job done faster and better and chart your progress..."

The app, which will be available in June, automatically starts a two-minute countdown clock once you begin brushing, informs you if you are putting too much pressure on your teeth, reminds you when you to replace your brush head and offers recommendations and rewards (although it isn't exactly clear what rewards there are, aside from not needing a root canal).

We're just waiting for a new and improved version where it also gives you a lollipop.
