My electric toothbrush is pretty smart. It knows when
brushing too hard and vibrates to tell me to back off. It
different speeds for whitening vs gum massage. It
when Ive spent long enough on one area of my mouth
beeps when its time to move to the next. Although
just a timer, 15 seconds for each quadrant.
When my dentist examines me, she sticks a probe
each tooth and Into the gum line, to see how far down it
will go. If its more than 3mm any place, she tells me to
brush and floss that area more carefully.
So make the toothbrush a little smarter in pressure
detection. It doesnt have to be precise as my hygienists
feeler gauge - but if it can tell an area of my gum line is
looser than should be, change the timing of the beeps so
spend more time there, and maybe change the speed of
the brushing action.
