It can handle up to 2,000 home dental sessions, and promises to restore clean, healthy teeth in less than 10 minutes. For an unbeatable price of € 199.99, you can add this product to your medicine cabinet. If you buy today, your order will be doubled, giving you TWO Dentidrill for the price of one…
