London: Get ready to brush your teeth with world``s first USB-powered toothbrush.

The 250-pounds gadget, dubbed as “the iPod of toothbrushes”, has been launched by Philips and can be charged via the USB port usually found on computers.

The Philips DiamondClean HX 9332 that incorporates AirFloss technology can reach an incredible 31,000 brush strokes per minute, and removes up to 100 per cent more plaque, reports the Daily Mail.

With five brushing modes and a two-minute timer, the makers promise to improve gum health in as little as 14 days.

Furthermore, it has a 30-second interval timer that encourages even brushing and whitens teeth.
Users have the added benefit of a “charge glass” for wireless charging that will notify them when the batteries have been fully charged via the USB socket.

Philips revealed the benefits of the AirFloss technology which “fires a microburst of air and water between teeth at 45mph to remove plaque”.
