For the most part, the Myst Toothbrush is a scam, but not more than other toothbrushes like the Quip toothbrush. The plaque removal capability of the Myst Toothbrush is inadequate for my recommendation. However, for people with severe dexterity issues it may be the only option they have to brush their own teeth.
The original gimmick to get people to buy the Myst toothbrush was that it had this light built into it. It was supposed to activate any whitening agent on your teeth, but this light only activates one kind of peroxide. The peroxide that it can activate isn’t in over-the-counter toothpastes and gels. So in its bleaching capabilities, the Myst Toothbrush is a scam. Please read my article on teeth whitening to understand the real and fake ways to whiten your teeth.
Besides this brush not getting great results, one of the issues is that everybody has very different sized mouths, and this brush comes in 2 sizes. Kids and adults. But as a dentist, I can tell you that I have to match up impression trays to mouths, and there are many more sizes than this. For me, it didn’t feel like it went back far enough, so I had to move it there. Even then, it seemed to trigger my gag reflex slightly. I was able to resist and keep brushing, but I can see those issues being a problem for some people.
