More accurate feedback without staring at your app

Ara, the first toothbrush with embedded 

artificial intelligence (AI), will be available in March, and already more than 10,000 of these toothbrushes have been pre-sold through Kolibree's website and an arrangement with a major health insurer interested in the risk assessment potential of AI in health care.

Artificial Intelligence in Ara by Kolibree provides more accurate feedback - whether you use the app or not when you brush your teeth.


What makes Ara by Kolibree so unique, even among the new breed of smart toothbrushes, is the microprocessor inside the toothbrush handle. This gives the toothbrush the capability to capture, store and sync data whether you use the app or not when you brush your teeth.


"We've surveyed, studied and analyzed the patterns of our toothbrush users since we launched Kolibree in 2014 and it became very clear that adults are not going to stare at a mobile app every time they brush their teeth," said Kolibree founder and CEO Thomas Serval. "At the same time, people want the data that shows if they are really brushing as well as they think they are."


Deep learning algorithms inside Ara emulate the way the brain works. This machine learning improves accuracy of data collection and provides step-by-step guidance through the Coach feature when you need it. To check up on yourself, just open the Kolibree app for a quick glance of the personalized Checkup feature to see where in your mouth you brushed, and where you missed in each of 16 brushing zones.


Ara by Kolibree is the smartest way to build confidence about improving healthy habits when it comes to dental hygiene and preventive oral health. Priced at USD $129, Ara can be pre-ordered at for $79 through February 28, 2017.
