* If you find brushing your teeth to be tedious, you might want to check out the Blizzident. The makers of this new product use a 3D scan of your teeth to create a custom toothbrush that looks like a mouthpiece lined with bristles. Supposedly, all you have to do is insert the Blizzident in your mouth, bite down and release 10 times, and — voila! — clean teeth in 6 seconds. Be prepared to pay for the convenience, though; a Blizzident of your very own will set you back $299. The toothbrush will last for a year, though, and replacement bristles are $89.
