Oral-B - The Future of Brushing


The brushing coach

Many people have personal trainers, some even have life coaches but with the Oral-B Genius X, you can be one of the first people to have a brushing coach!

Oral-B GeniusX

Are you brushing right?

It is thought that up to 80% of us don’t reach every corner of our mouths when we brush*. Some of us aren’t brushing for long enough and others are applying too much pressure to our gums. All in all, most of us could benefit from a little added assistance!

How does it work?

The Oral-B Genius X contains two different sensors that measure brush location and brush orientation in space (so it knows where the brush is – just like a detailed version of the GPS on a running app) and uses Bluetooth to send this information to the Oral-B app on our phones instantly.

Smart, huh?

Then, the AI technology in the app on your phone (which was created by studying thousands of brushing techniques) will provide real-time feedback on pressure, coverage and amount of time you spend brushing to help you achieve the perfect brush.

After brushing, the session summary recaps the info and coaches you with personalised tips and techniques for next time. Just like a personal trainer. And, even when you don’t use the app, the clever handle stores information for next time you do log on.

In essence, the Oral-B Genius X and Oral-B app use vast research and expert knowledge to help you achieve the perfect clean as simply as possible. Absolutely genius.

*Based on results from Oral-B motion tracking research

@all: Could you benefit from a brushing coach?


Pandasand1 • 07/06/2019 - 13:14

I sure could benefit from a brushing coach! My toothbrush arrived today and I can't wait to finish work to take it home and get started. I'm going to have the cleanest gnashers this side of the Penines! :-)

Dark_Lord_Meh • 07/06/2019 - 13:16

Mine’s charging up ready to use, I look forward to being able to see how well I brush my teeth

jimmumohan • 07/06/2019 - 13:25

Got it today..Cant wait to test my personal brushing coach tomorrow.So so excited!!

Bixybee • 07/06/2019 - 13:26

Used for the first time today, it told me excellent brushing, felt like getting a gold star for brushing my teeth! Hoping for tips as time goes on.

DJones82 • 07/06/2019 - 13:26

Just got mine and it looks great....on charge now and cant wait to try it, first impressions are fantastic!!! 😎👌

lily_rules • 07/06/2019 - 13:28

Mine is currently charging, can't believe it arrived so quick! Will be rushing home to try it out :)

Lindybop • 07/06/2019 - 13:29

Received mine today and it’s really interesting. I’ve learnt I apply too much pressure, so I need to work on that.

Cityste • 07/06/2019 - 13:29

woke up this morning to the postman ringing my buzzer to find out ive been picked to try the Oral-B  20000 looking forward tonight when I use it looks pretty snazzy I'll let you know more when ive used it

Leighmurrrr • 07/06/2019 - 13:30

Anyone else's yet to arrive?

Sally • 11/06/2019 - 16:19

Dear savvy circler Leighmurrrr, has your starter kit arrived yet? We are happy to look into this further for you.

didiflori • 07/06/2019 - 13:30

Amazing how far thr technology takes you. I love the app and I definitely love the coaching side as it clearly shows you where you haven't brushed enough!

Sally • 11/06/2019 - 16:18

Dear savvy circler didiflori, it's great to hear that you are loving the new tech! Enjoy!

enzina • 07/06/2019 - 13:32

Can’t wait to get mine! As I’m taking oral care very serious, I think this premium toothbrush is just what I need.

Clairecar73 • 07/06/2019 - 13:32

My toothbrush has arrived !!! The app is downloaded ready. Looking forward to trying and seeing actually how well i do brush my teeth 😊

JT862 • 07/06/2019 - 13:33

Mine just arrived, can't wait to start using it! Love the rose gold colour and travel case :)

Sabrinashort • 07/06/2019 - 13:36

I most definitely can benefit from a brushing coach, my gums bleed and my teeth are ever so sensitive. I’m guessing I’m doing it wrong somehow, at least now I can find out how :-)

ulstersajida • 07/06/2019 - 13:37

Mine came this morning and I am happy and excited. Used it straight away and was told my brushing technique was brilliant but that at times I applied too much pressure !
Teeth feel Smooth and fresh !
Can’t wait to try it again this evening

Mirelka • 07/06/2019 - 13:38

Arrived this morning, downloaded the app and already try it! Its Amaizing! The coach shows you where you need more attention. And my teeth are so clean! Love this thootbrush!

MrsMCC85 • 07/06/2019 - 13:43

It's arrived!!!!
I am going to start to use it tonight, love the look of it by the way!

I would really benefit from a brushing coach, I clean my teeth (obviously) however I must admit I don't think about what I'm doing when I'm doing it, I know I clean for 2 minutes, as that has been my routine for years, yet I do it so absent minded I'm not entirely convinced I am doing it right!

Bitly • 07/06/2019 - 13:49

Just received my brush🙂 looks fab & the travel case is superb. Excited to try it in the evening & know whether i am brushing right or not. I can surely get benefit from such a smart brushing coach.

samspam2019 • 07/06/2019 - 13:58

This is a great idea, I always find when I'm half asleep that I'm double brushing one side, or not doing every side evenly so hopefully this helps!

alibongooo • 07/06/2019 - 13:59

Just had my first brush and mouth feels zingy clean! I always switch off when using a normal toothbrush and can’t remember what I’ve cleaned at the end. The app is excellent, it tracks where you’ve been and helps you see where you have left to cover. It also warns you when you push too hard. What will it say when I try cleaning with out the app? Lots of fun to be had over the next few weeks!

Heartlady • 07/06/2019 - 14:01

I’m so excited I can’t wait to get home and try this out .
Wishing away the day . Thank you

talmee-0 • 07/06/2019 - 14:03

Thank you Savvy Circle and Braun Oral-B. Really happy got my review unit today. Coaching feature works great, I got a score of 85%. So far feels great and premium. Looking forward :)

Sally • 11/06/2019 - 16:23

Dear savvy circler talmee-0, 85% is a great start!

sipder • 07/06/2019 - 14:10

Just received the box, looking forward to trying it out.

greglee • 07/06/2019 - 14:31

Just got my Toothbrush wow wow love it well the look ,have set up my bluetooth will give it a charge and look forward to this journey making my dental care better with the help of my new friend Oral b Genius X

averagebeauty • 07/06/2019 - 14:55

Oh yes I will definately benefit from brushing coach. I can not wait to check out this new smart toothbrush! Very exciting experience :)

abacus939 • 07/06/2019 - 15:05

Mine arrived today, just waiting for it to charge; very excited to see how it works!!

giffy666 • 07/06/2019 - 15:20

Just received mine will put it on charge then I will see how things go.

scook1961 • 07/06/2019 - 15:36

My GeniusX has just arrived, so I am er... "champing at the bit" to get started on this campaign. Cannot wait for the app to show me how to better brush my teeth.

Nikkielizabeth • 07/06/2019 - 15:38

Woohoo my tooth brush arrived today thank you!! very excited cannot wait to try it. Recived the black one, looks awesome 😊😊🤗

micky_lovesfun • 07/06/2019 - 15:43

Just Wow. It's amazing how far technology has evolved. I can't wait to start using mine when it arrives. Will be really helpful to see how wrong or right I'm getting it. Thanks for the opportunity to try it. 😁

tomasaves • 07/06/2019 - 16:04

The brush has arrived and I can't wait to try it and see how good or bad I am at doing this. The brush is extremely good looking and my husband is already jealous of me. Long live healthy teeth!

Julez86 • 07/06/2019 - 16:06

My brush arrived today! Looking forward to using it.
I always feel like I’m being rushed at the dentist/hygienist, so don’t feel like I get the coaching I need, especially because I have crowding on my lower teeth, leaving me prone to staining. So could define benefit from a brushing coach!

Sezra • 07/06/2019 - 16:11

Super excited to try the Genius-x, my dentist will be so pleased! 😊

fairytan • 07/06/2019 - 16:11

Wow just used the toothbrush and got 100%, I enjoyed brushing for the first time in many years. My mouth feels so good. Looking forward to getting to know this brush over the next couple of weeks.

Rofkata • 07/06/2019 - 16:15

Im so haapy i just recive my brushing coach and strength i put him to be change. So excited to trying later today. Im sure is gona be amazing

Akay75 • 07/06/2019 - 16:32

Just got home to find the new OralB Genius X waiting for me. Downloaded the app which has a good look and feel about it.

Powered up the Genius X and away I go!

Hannahbubble • 07/06/2019 - 16:33

So excited to try this who thought a toothbrush could be so much fun!!

0aceone0 • 07/06/2019 - 16:53

Came today :-) Did not realise how hard I had been Brushing my teeth. Early day but impressed.

mrskatebrown • 07/06/2019 - 17:02

I know for a fact I do not brush my teeth for long enough! Sounds gross I know! Received my package today and it's currently charging - looking forward to using the app and seeing exactly how I can improve my oral hygiene routine!

MunchKim • 07/06/2019 - 17:36

Mine's here too, really looking forward to seeing how good/bad a job I'm really doing!

Sally • 11/06/2019 - 16:29

Dear savvy circler MunchKim, good luck and hope you enjoy it!

KMars • 07/06/2019 - 17:37

Can't wait for mine to arrive. I need a brushing coach. I've been told by dentists in many occasions I brush my teeth too hard and I'm wearing away the enamel, so a brushing coach would be a fabulous way to monitor my brushing habits.

LucyJayne93 • 07/06/2019 - 18:25

Just got home to find my toothbrush waiting for me! I can't wait to use it!

Glenh • 07/06/2019 - 19:11

Just got home to find the new toothbrush had arrived. 1 hour later and I got to try it out. Easy to set up snd the "Coach" identified I was using too much pressure within seconds of using. eased off and everything worked well. Great improvement over my existing Braun toothbrush.
Looking forward to the next use already.

Claude38 • 07/06/2019 - 19:19

Got it today and it is definitely 5 stars OMG I’m a so happy with my product it’s amazing

dimark6267 • 07/06/2019 - 19:19

Got my toothbrush today. It’s charging and I’ve got the app so can’t wait to try it later 😁

Mayo • 07/06/2019 - 19:22

My genius electric toothbrush arrived today. First impression is very impressive. It looks totally different from the old generation of electric toothbrush which I used and gave up long time ago. This new generation of electric toothbrush looks more advanced in both design and usability. Can’t wait to use it!

SueCart924 • 07/06/2019 - 19:30

I can not wait for mine to arrive, it looks and sounds amazing.

Tweety2002 • 07/06/2019 - 19:37

Recieved mine this morning and now is fully charged. Can't wait to try it out. Already downloaded the app with was easy to do and now I'm ready to go. I'm hopeful that it will help with the issues I currently have

Shazzyywazzyy • 07/06/2019 - 20:02

Got mine today! Let’s see how well i actually brush my teeth!

Wd789 • 07/06/2019 - 20:09

Just received mine today!!! Have just tried it out and I was amazing! I don’t think my mouth has ever felt this clean in my life!! It really shows how long 2 mins actually is...

Star1000 • 07/06/2019 - 20:37

Just received my pack today and I'm excited to get started. I could definitely benefit from a brushing coach to help me to reach areas I miss or need to focus more on.

Clairecar73 • 07/06/2019 - 20:51

I used my toothbrush for the first time tonight. I have to admit i was more excited to see the results after brushing my teeth!. First impressions the toothbrush is great!. And my results after brushing??? I only went and got 100% !!!! Am so proud of my self i must brush my teeth correctly 😂😂. But on a serious note i have found this really good to actually be able to see if i do brush my teeth correctly or not . So over all first impressions a bug thumbs up!😊

marfoot • 07/06/2019 - 21:23

Mine is charging up ready to begin using it from tomorrow morning

Sindall007 • 07/06/2019 - 21:32

Ahhhhhhhhh it’s arrived!!!!!!!! On charge and rating to go tomorrow! I can’t wait for my own personal toothbrush coach! I’m so excited!!!!!!!

katerina875 • 07/06/2019 - 21:39

Waiting for mine to arrive cant wait to try it. Reading all those tips and downloaded the app 😍 hopefully I'll learn how to brush my teeth including gum care for 100%

Aleksandra3 • 07/06/2019 - 21:59

It's so cool, magic, I love it 😍

minibass • 07/06/2019 - 22:11

Really excited to try it! Charging it overnight so it is all ready for the morning. Can’t wait!

Staceyuk24 • 07/06/2019 - 22:16

Recieved my brush today and OMG it's amazing. It looks super cool and the app my God! Just brushed my teeth and they are gleaming! And i have had some sort of oral B toothbrush since they came out , but this one is head and shoulders above any I have ever had

Newcaledonia • 07/06/2019 - 22:25

Yay, I got my toothbrush today! I love the colour. I downloaded the app and I can't wait to use the toothbrush once it's charged. I am so excited, thank you so much.

Adam144 • 07/06/2019 - 22:25

My toothbrush arrived today and it is amazing. I brushed my tooth this morning and tonight and it feels amazing. I love the app too, cant stop looking at it while I'm brushing. It keeps showing you areas that you are brushing and also shows you when you apply too much pressure. I like it so far !

Brunomhb • 07/06/2019 - 22:56

Yeahee arrived today, let's now charge it, I'll charge mine through the travel box as it brings a plug slightly easier to fit British sockets than the proper white charger it brings. App installed too so tomorrow once it's charged let's what the fuss is about ;)

Pandasand1 • 08/06/2019 - 07:41

My goodness! Who knew brushing your teeth was so technical? After just two sessions with this brush I find that I don't properly clean one section. Well, I do now!! I can see me getting addicted to teeth cleaning 😂

asterix • 08/06/2019 - 07:54

Mine has arrived. I could definitely do with a brushing coach. I am going to spend some time fully understanding how it works, so I can get the most benefit from it. This is an exciting project

JoeFrankel • 08/06/2019 - 08:29

My toothbrush arrived yesterday. Such sleek packaging and a really nice design. The black colour is so futuristic. The app is very simple to use and is addictive to watch while brushing. My teeth feel amazing after a good clean with this brush. Excited to continue using it!

cheekyherb • 08/06/2019 - 08:44

My brush arrived yesterday, love the look and feel of it as well as the travel charger!
Loved the app, didn't realise I was so heavy handed when brushing my teeth, this explains the sore gums. Its great to get information like this so that I can adjust my technique. will def try and be more gentle this morning.
The reminders to floss/brush your tongue are great for children.
So far loving the brush!

fudge77 • 08/06/2019 - 10:38

Brush arrived yesterday used first time this morning love the different types of brushing and of course the ability to change the colour 🤣 teeth feel much cleaner than usual and the feedback is useful for tonight’s brushing!

Sindall007 • 08/06/2019 - 10:47

How have I lived without a brushing coach before! This is literally the most amazing gadget I have ever used! My husband is gutted he didn’t apply for one! My other oral b toothbrush is nothing compared to this genius!

SonjinYork • 08/06/2019 - 11:31

Have used mine twice now, great that you can watch where you’re brushing and when it’s completed that area. Really loving it.
Little confused how you use the other functions as they then seemed to mess up my whole brush rating this morning but I’ll keep at it. Great coaching to teach you where you need to concentrate more🙂🙂
Wish the plug to charge the carry unit was uk but great for travelling

CherryLeeAnn1985 • 08/06/2019 - 11:50

So far so good this toothbrush is amazing my teeth have never felt this clean! I absolutely love the features of the app and how it shows you when you’ve cleaned all of your teeth completely. This toothbrush is definitely genius!

MichalS • 08/06/2019 - 13:06

Arrived yesterday, used first time today. I installed the app, but haven't look at it during toothbrush, anyway achieved 92% according A.I. Next time will focus at app to check where I can increase my cleaning skills. Very happy with product so far. Travel case with integrated charger is brilliant idea.

BeckieMac • 08/06/2019 - 13:18

Brush has came can’t wait to use it very soon thanks so much x

LHP118 • 08/06/2019 - 15:17

Whilst the Genius X charged, we debated on who would get to test it. My organisationally, time-keeping and coordination challenged ASD-teen was obviously the one who's gain most from trialling the AI-star-toothbrush....so no debate after all. 65% efficient on his first brush...and knows what he needs to focus on next time!

Ninnytendo • 08/06/2019 - 15:38

I received it yesterday and I have started using it. I downloaded the app, logged into it and I am ready to go. I have played with the app to get the most of it and decide on a dental care journey. I have played with the brush to see what each brushing mode does and I am monitoring my progress on the app. So far so good, there are really good things with it and others not so much but it is still early days so I haven't made up my mind yet. I love the travel case!

gee65xx • 08/06/2019 - 16:10

Just received the Oral-B GENIUS X, I'm having a good read up on it while it's charging, it looks quite simple to use and sounds amazing. Will let you know how I get on with it.

ania • 08/06/2019 - 17:31

Received my Oral B genius X toothbrush,
I am so excited will be a great to change a routine of brushing a teeth and have a coach.
Love new technology
Thank you savycircle

ikealover • 08/06/2019 - 18:26

I could definitely use a brushing coach even if my dentist does say I brush well. I tried this toothbrush quickly earlier but will be using it properly after tea time and hope to beat my score of 60 percent. I love the fact it tells you what areas you need to pay more attention to.

marfoot • 08/06/2019 - 20:41

Absolutely love my genius X. Easy to set up with the app. My teeth have never felt so clean

Sally • 11/06/2019 - 16:49

Dear savvy circler marfoot, great to hear that you are loving it!

Lazzzzaa • 08/06/2019 - 21:52

Love it so far cant wait to brush my teeth lol! Easy to set up too

LHP118 • 08/06/2019 - 22:36

So...is anyone else using a base across multiple users? Can this even be done?

Landshark • 09/06/2019 - 08:42

Used mine for the first time last night. AMAZING! so simple to set up and a really interesting app to guide you through. Took the Brushing Habit Assessment last night and started a 2 week Whitening Journey. It makes me so much more conscious of how I brush and how much pressure I apply to areas in my mouth. Brilliant toothbrush!

CWarrilow93 • 09/06/2019 - 09:19

Loving this toothbrush already love the way the app tells you what your doing right when brushing too 😁 and my mouth feels so clean after!!

Chant09 • 09/06/2019 - 10:23

I didnt realise until using this that I was doing my teeth wrong!! The personal trainer on the app is showing me I brush too long and I brush my teeth too hard. My teeth have honestly never felt so clean in my life!! I'm absolutely loving the oral-b genius x. Thank you for this opportunity

Rofkata • 09/06/2019 - 10:33

I use for moment 3 days and i can say i feel different in my mouth is very helpful the app. Im really happy have the chance to try this brush

Ashp78 • 09/06/2019 - 10:45

Just received the pack today
Can’t wait to be coached into better tooth care !

MunchKim • 09/06/2019 - 11:15

I was so happy to get 100% on my first brush, the only downside is I'm having problems signing up to OralB me it keeps saying I need to 'Match the requested format' when entering my first name, I thought maybe it was too short so tried changing to my nickname but that was wrong too and so was without a capital letter to start. Help!

JeSuisKB • 09/06/2019 - 12:03

I got mine too... charging it up today and I’ll start using it on my next brush :)

nikkia77 • 09/06/2019 - 12:34

Arrived yesterday & downloaded the app. Used for the first time today, apparently I brush well but use to much pressure so it will be interesting to see if that improves over the coming weeks

e-numbers • 09/06/2019 - 14:04

Wow, I cleaned my teeth with the new toothbrush and tried out the coaching part of the app. How amazing technology has advanced. The toothbrush was telling me if I applied too much pressure and I could see how well I was cleaning each section of my teeth. Really impressed so far although I’m sure there is lots to learn about this technology!

Sally • 11/06/2019 - 16:55

Dear savvy circler e-numbers, glad to hear the Genius X has helped you to apply less pressure.

Samd85 • 09/06/2019 - 14:37

Mines arrived but I’ve been working all weekend, it’s now on charge the app is downloaded and ready to start my brushing journey.
Can’t wait to see what I’ve been doing wrong and for the app to coach me

TiffanyBlue02 • 09/06/2019 - 15:03

Sounds very promising so far!

ania • 09/06/2019 - 15:06

I connected the toothbrush with my bluetooth and I customized the brush so it lights up pink and it is amazing.

Sealmoo • 09/06/2019 - 16:57

Just received mine and it's charging up really looking forward to testing it and the toothbrushing trainer out :) Excited!!!!!!!

SallyP • 09/06/2019 - 17:11

Oh my goodness this toothbrush is epic!!!

Nikkielizabeth • 09/06/2019 - 17:34

The app is really good tells you how long you need to brush for also if you're not doing it correctly. Recived my toothbrush on Friday, very excited to keep using it, fab results already 😁

acarr90 • 09/06/2019 - 18:12

I have just used mine with the app for the first time and I'm absolutely amazed! I can't believe how well it works. Thank you so much for the opportunity to try this xx

Paddy0117 • 09/06/2019 - 18:18

Got mine this morning its on charge looks like a good piece of kit looking forward to trying it later 🤓

ania • 09/06/2019 - 19:20

Already brushed my teeth using the Oral-B app.
Amazing experience I brushed my teeth more than 3 minutes results were excellent. My brushing score was 100% no bleeding gums.

Kalamity_kyrie • 09/06/2019 - 19:23

Most definitely! After being told by my hygienist, last month, that my gums are wearing away because I’m not brushing properly... I was shocked! I have an appointment again with her in August, and I really can’t wait to see if using this brush has made any improvements.

It’s on charge and ready to go 🦷

Shellb159 • 09/06/2019 - 19:58

I really like the way the teeth on the image turn white when you've brushed that area fully. I didn't notice any change in vibrations / coloured led as mentioned in the instructions, will need to keep an eye out for that next time I use the brush. Teeth feel smoother and cleaner though, despite usually using an electric toothbrush.

smart_pants • 09/06/2019 - 20:14

Happy to have Received the brush.
Loved the lovely Rose gold colour.
The travel case is such a nice touch.
I buy separate brushing heads for each of the family members and we share the electric body but this one you won't be able to, because there is only one profile with the brushing body.
Several different profiles would be a nice update if that is possible.
The app is a bit confusing at times because sometimes it shows what areas u are brushing, sometimes its just a timer, sometimes its just analysing. I guess the app is trying to know me as it is early days yet. I prefer when it is showing me the areas i am cleaning live.
I used a normal electric brush before and it couldn't tell me i was putting too much pressure. So happy i found out with Oral-B Genius X.
