The toothbrush was the invention of Dentist Craig Kohler, who had the idea after regularly using the camera fo his patients to teach them how to better brush their teeth, reported by Venture Beat. It now can evolve into patients teaching themselves at home with this new toothbrush. 

The toothbrush is going on sale for $400(£275) but preorders will have $100 discount and be priced at $300(£206). It is expected to release in the first quarter of 2017.
