And you never have to worry about it getting gross with it’s anti-bacterial non-porous silicone construction.
The Foreo ISSA™ features high-intensity pulsations (8 different speeds) which are channeled through soft silicone bristles (with 3D movement), instead of the damaging scratching action that standard bristled toothbrushes use.

It even pulses to let you know when to move on to different areas of your mouth!
Each brush head lasts for a WHOLE YEAR, so you actually save money over time by simply buying extra brush heads. Also, tongue cleaning heads are available.
