Oral-B - The Future of Brushing

Oral-B

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?

Its bloomin fantastic! I always thought that pressure was good when brushing so it really got rid of plaque but using this is fab. Teeth feel better than a dentist clean and after using the coach for two days i did a 'brushing style' test and got 98%! Super chuffed. Do i need a brushing coach? Absolutely!

Samd85 • 09/06/2019 - 20:59

Just used it for the first time didn’t have the app open but checked it when I finished. It’s brilliant how it tells you when to move to another part of your mouth. My teeth feel cleaner already after one brush. So excited to see the results after 2 weeks 🥰

DZee • 09/06/2019 - 22:40

OMG!! Loving this version of Oral B. The travel case had me sold but then the app. So didn’t realise I was putting too much pressure on my teeth. Feel like I’ve had a dentist clean and felt like I should be smiling even more. I’ve never been so excited about this toothbrush since I heard about it even more so when I received it on Saturday. I’m in love!!!!! 💋💋

Linzi695 • 09/06/2019 - 23:42

Loving this teeth have never felt this clean even after having a deep clean at dentist. Love the travel case and so easy to charge. The app is just mind blowing how it can tell when to use more pressure.

Beck1980 • 10/06/2019 - 07:52

I love it 💗💗 been using it 4 days now . Love the coaching as it shows which teeth u have missed which ones to spend more time on . Totally hooked on brushing my teeth.

MrsMCC85 • 10/06/2019 - 08:14

The coaching is amazing! I never realised that I could be missing parts of my teeth.
I'm obsessed with getting 100% 😂

sianation • 10/06/2019 - 08:54

I have always thought I brushed my teeth too hard, and this has been proved correct whilst using the new app based toothbrush. It's really easy to set and up and seems more powerful than my previous oral b toothbrush. I'm a definite fan so far!!

Smeeghead • 10/06/2019 - 09:02

Boom!!! Did think I was doing OK with my brushing but on the brushing style analysis the first time I got 100%.

Madzik30 • 10/06/2019 - 09:19

Loving it! couple days in and less gum bleeds because I get extra buzz when adding to much pressure 😁😁😁

Secretaybird74 • 10/06/2019 - 10:01

I've had a long term problem with bleeding gums, using the brushing coach I've found that I'm applying too much pressure and following the advice of the app since starting using the toothbrush I've not had any bleeding gums! Very impressed with the brush and the app.

Starrz • 10/06/2019 - 10:43

Recieved product and absolutly amazed at the squeaky clean and whitee smilee absolutly amazed me due to ramadan teeth had gone abit yellow but wen i used this every inch corner teeth gaps all of it was cleaned felt likee dentist had juz cleaned them but without making them sensitive so prouddd of this but the aap playin up and wont let me recprd result brushing for longer than 2 mon and it just shows me 54 secs can anyone helpp

Sallykl • 10/06/2019 - 11:15

The love this product! The way the toothbrush is paired over Bluetooth with the coaching app is so beneficial. It makes brushing more 'fun' as you are interested in your progress! I ended up spending 4 minutes on my first day! The second day I brushed without looking at the app. I was able to compare my usual brushing habits with my target areas. I can now see which areas I do not cover and know to consciously dedicate more time on these areas.

tea1971 • 10/06/2019 - 11:26

the brushing coach has been really good iv been able to reduce how much pressure i use when brushing but also my teeth/mouth feels so much cleaner and fresher

Nylesmummy • 10/06/2019 - 12:04

Wow wow wow who ever created this amazing brushing coach app it’s fantastic. I love I can keep track of my brushing and ensure I’m brushing for the correct amount of time. My favourite feature is after finishing brushing it let’s me know which areas I need to improve on, really impressed by this and how my brushing technique is transferred into an app. I’m fascinated by the whole concept of the app and loving all the extra features that I’m currently exploring and the ability to change the light of you brush is such a fun feature. So excited to continue my Oral B journey. After just a few days of use my teeth feel amazing, like I’ve just walked out of the dentists. Super happy I’m getting to experience this new innovative oral b brush 😄😄😄😄

Sally • 11/06/2019 - 17:04

Dear savvy circler Nylesmummy, it's great to have you on the team and we're glad to hear you are enjoying it.

Clairecar73 • 10/06/2019 - 13:56

Been using now for 3 days. I think what makes the toothbrush mire interesting is definitely the app to see how you actually brush your teeth!!. Gonna be totally honest if it was just the toothbrush i really wouldn't say it is any better than my previous oral b brush but being able to use the technology of the brush with the app is a great selling point and would definitely recommend for this reason.

boppy77 • 10/06/2019 - 15:34

Absolutely love this toothbrush - I always thought I brushed for 2 minutes but it appears not. I love how the brush speed changes for different functions. Its actually made brushing teeth enjoyable!

WiktoriaG • 11/06/2019 - 00:43

This far the best electric toothbrush I have ever used, the teeth are shiny. The app helps clean all the areas of your mouth which is great, it will really improve the way you brush your teeth!

Scorpio69 • 11/06/2019 - 06:36

Wow love this toothbrush. First two uses 100% good to know I'm doing something right. I just love how it tells you exactly where and how you have brushed.

0aceone0 • 11/06/2019 - 08:59

Not been able to get on here for a few days.
I am well impressed the oral b genius. This offer popped up a couple days after my dentist recommended I get a electric tooth brush (even recommended oral b brand). Using this tooth brush my mouth feels fresher. With the added bonus of the app I am now using this tooth brush for longer and using the right technique. It has lost the Ai once and reverted to a timer. But clearing the data and cache its working OK now. Love it

averagebeauty • 11/06/2019 - 09:53

During the first use there was a brushing coach in the app but when I used brush 2nd time there was no coaching. I need to find out where to activate it because I thought it will be automaticly activated. Other than that I am amazed how lightweight is the toothbrush!

cheekyherb • 11/06/2019 - 10:58

I have had receding gums for a while, dentist is always telling me I brush to hard, this is great at showing me where and allowing me to correct it. I don't feel that My gums hurt as much after using the brush and app for 4 days, baby steps but def getting better.

I also managed to smash my 100% brushing technique! woohoo!

Ashp78 • 11/06/2019 - 11:15

Day 3 and my teeth are feeling amazing 😁😁
So clean ... can’t wait to see the results after 2 weeks

greglee • 11/06/2019 - 11:18

How cool to have Tech to improve the way i brush my teeth they look allready a lot better as well as feel much nicer this is a mind blowing toothbrush packed with some excellent guides on getting brushing the teeth right.

littleforestowl • 11/06/2019 - 11:47

I’m definitely benefiting from the brushing coach. I use less pressure now, I can actually see areas I’ve missed and my teeth are looking healthy and bright. I have an appointment with my dentist on Thursday and I’m really looking forward to it.

Ange101 • 11/06/2019 - 12:09

I've been using it for 3 days and, I won't lie, the first couple of sessions had me anxious that I wasn't doing it correctly. Wow! easy peasy instructions and great results, to date. Can't wait to see the results over a week.

andreat • 11/06/2019 - 15:01

I never knew I needed this till I got it. So easy to use and I have now realised how I brush my teeth..wrongly. I used the coach and got 94% so i am not doing too bad. I now concentrate on the teeh it tells me I am not giving too much attention too and I have noticed my teeth feel so much claner for longer

lauzc87 • 11/06/2019 - 17:44

I absolutely love this brushing coach - it's my favourite part of the toothbrush and really helps to ensure I've got into all the nooks and crannies of my mouth and brushed all surfaces of my teeth. It's a huge seller for me.

JoeFrankel • 11/06/2019 - 19:58

I have now completed 8 "Sessions" using this toothbrush and really enjoy using the Oral-B app to make sure I clean every part of my teeth thoroughly; it's even enjoyable as it seems a type of game to get everything clean nearest to the 2 minute mark as suggested. I also had no idea that I was using too much pressure! My first session that I brushed I had 24 seconds of too hard pressure and this was in 5 of 6 areas of my mouth! However, the brushing coach has helped me to ensure that this is now always less than 5 seconds of too much pressure. I can also honestly say my teeth feel so much cleaner and I often find myself licking my teeth during the day as they're so smooth!
I've had very few issues with the toothbrush or app. I have noticed occasionally that the sensors think I am brushing the opposite side to the one I am actually brushing. It occasionally also freezes/thinks that I am not brushing but I am still investigating whether it is a software or hardware issue, or whether an issue with my phone's Bluetooth connectivity.
Overall, so far this is a fantastically innovative device with a fun app that really does help make sure you are brushing correctly, and that you're covering 100% of your mouth. I am excited to see how my oral hygiene improves!

If • 11/06/2019 - 20:44

Incredible brush, best cleaned teeth ever! Love the app and the brush. Fast becoming one the essential can't live without item, never thought that I would add a toothbrush to washing machine, dishwasher and car.

Debsfran • 12/06/2019 - 11:36

I have never been this excited about brushing my teeth before. I am like a child with a new toy.
I have used electric tooth brush before but it was only through using this one that I discovered that once you turn it on, you do not need to hold the button to keep it going. every 9 seconds or so my finger would accidentally switch it off and I would get told off by the app lol - "you need to brush longer"
I know what I am doing now and love it

Heartlady • 12/06/2019 - 15:23

Omg this accurately shows what teeth I missed I need this in my life . It’s amazing xx

Craigo71 • 12/06/2019 - 22:38

I didn't think a toothbrush could look so sexy?! How cool is this design though? It's true what they say, anything in black always look more expensive and chic. Fantastic case to carry it in whick doubles up as a charging unit too, brilliant. I used it today for the 1st time but it didn't connect to my phone so will make sure it does tomorrow. Cleans like a dream and my teeth looked and felt so much better. Looking forward to using it more and reviewing.

Rochelle • 13/06/2019 - 10:23

Been using the toothbrush for a few days and OMG I’m in love. My whole dental hygiene game has just been upgraded. My teeth look and feel great, the coaching is so helpful!!

lauzc87 • 13/06/2019 - 15:31

The best part of this brush was the brushing coach. On my app and mobile screen, it shows a photo/impression of teeth. From this, whilst you’re brushing, once you’ve covered certain areas and teeth, they turn white to indicate that you have successfully cleaned that area of mouth and the surfaces of your teeth. I didn’t realise how poorly I was brushing before using this app and it certainly has provided me with additional information on the areas of the mouth I am missing and how much time I need to spend on each area and teeth surfaces. I do absolutely love the additional benefits of the AI build into this toothbrush and can certainly see and feel already, the difference in my teeth – they feel cleaner as I’m able to cover all surfaces within my mouth and they don’t look as stained as I do tent to drink a lot of coffee!

Andyjh • 13/06/2019 - 17:15

This has changed my style of brushing already, it is great the way it tracks what you are doing and advises on changes required. My teeth certainly feel cleaner now.

asdaly1 • 13/06/2019 - 18:19

sounds like such a good idea! good idea to incorporate an app associated with it

minibass • 13/06/2019 - 22:14

Loving the toothbrush! Had turned off my phone yesterday evening, and it still recorded the brushing and uploaded it this morning. So clever! I missed seeing the picture of my mouth though. The travel case is so clever as well.
There’s just one thing that confuses me... when I brushed without the app, it buzzed every 30 seconds to tell me to move on. When I use the app, I have to keep an eye on the time as it doesn’t buzz? And sometimes I stop at 2 minutes and it says I have 30 seconds left in the session. Is that because I have missed bits? Has anyone else found this?
But what a brilliant toothbrush-I’m spending longer cleaning my teeth every time and aiming for 100% score! I had no idea I was applying or much pressure before.

smart_pants • 13/06/2019 - 23:20

I think i can definitely benefit from a brushing coach because i wouldn't have realised i was putting too much pressure on my gums if i didn't use this brish and the app. I really love the fact that the brush ring changes color when too much pressure is detected. Awsome technology.the brush on the teeth feels exactly like a dentist's which is amazing. It's like a dentist cleaning your teeth everday for you, except the awkward getting too close to your face 😅

cheekyherb • 14/06/2019 - 11:03

Finally reached the 100% score for brushing! woohoo.
have noticed my gums are not as sensitive now I can see where I am applying too much pressure.

Sally • 18/06/2019 - 09:51

Dear savvy circler cheekyherb, whoop whoop! well done on reaching 100%

Shellb159 • 14/06/2019 - 12:49

Had trouble logging into my account but can now add comments - the brushing coach is so helpful, without having the app open and seeing exactly where I'm cleaning, I know even if I manage to brush for long enough I am not giving each area of my mouth the required attention and am missing parts.

Slough90 • 14/06/2019 - 13:11

This tooth brush really is the best thing since sliced bread. I've gone from a big standard manual toothbrush (zzzzz boring) to this work of actual art. I LOVE how I'm being coached all over again on how to brush my teeth AND I can now talk to people with the confidence that every book and cranny of my mouth is clear! And if it isn't, the app tells you!! Amazing

donnavkebab • 15/06/2019 - 08:37

I’m really surprised since using this toothbrush and the coaching on the app my gums haven’t bled once!! I love that it flashes red when I’m applying too much pressure!

Shazzyywazzyy • 15/06/2019 - 11:42

I actually Feel like I’ve walked out if the dentist surgery after a clean and polish every time i use it, its amazing!!! I do think it needs a little tweaking though but otherwise im totally amazed

tingle412 • 15/06/2019 - 15:09

I feel like my mind has been blown with this to be honest. At the age of 27, I thought I knew how to brush my teeth fairly well ha ha!! Well, turns out I am normally using WAY too much pressure, going way too fast, and occasionally even missing a few bits! (Embarrassing to admit :/ )
This is brilliant - it's now 3pm and I can honestly say I keep running my tongue over my teeth because even though I brushed them at 8am, they still feel SO much cleaner! All from using a toothbrush properly!
Also, I always find that if I have an electric toothbrush on while I'm trying to clean my tongue, it makes me feel sick - this one, not so!
Absolutely LOVING this product! #gamechanger #cantbelieveihavebeendoingitwrong

LHP118 • 15/06/2019 - 20:59

My ASD 11-year old commandeered the Oral-B Genius X as soon as it arrived. He is not very good at organisation and his dexterity is poor.... he's been excited to get no bad scores or warnings on the app, and is doing really well. What a great tool and incentive. There have been some challenges on the app (the fun section has glitches) but all-in-all can only praise it!

VickiElleryJ • 16/06/2019 - 08:55

Absolutely. Some guidance on best practice is a great innovation in dental care.

Bmay96 • 16/06/2019 - 09:46

Personally I think everyone regarding of age should benefit for this. Sometimes people just give there teeth a quick clean and miss parts, then get into the habit of doing the sane brushing routine. Definitely would be beneficial in my household

edziergas • 17/06/2019 - 12:59

But the best part of it is actually bluetooth connection that is used to transfer data of your brushing directly into the app on your phone! WOW my mind was blown away.
The app is simple yet powerful. You set up your chosen journey first, being it plaque fighter, gum health, tartar reduction etc. and after creating account and completing brushing habit assessment you are off and ready for your first experience. As you go along your coach will guide you on your progress, point out where you should be working harder and where you put too much pressure.
It also reminds you to floss and use mouth wash. If you want it can also remind you when it’s time for new brush head.

rosieeeeeee • 17/06/2019 - 12:59

I've really enjoyed concentrating on the health of my teeth and can see a significant improvement in my oral hygiene. The timer and coverage report really helps to ensure i've cleaned my teeth effectively day and night! This would be great for people who are struggling with oral hygiene and need some guidance.

cheekydevil73 • 17/06/2019 - 13:08

Wow! This toothbrush is fabulous, the first time I used it the coach said I brush too hard. Been working on this since and getting better. Without the app and this brush I would never have known, loving it already

Grac49ie • 17/06/2019 - 18:51

I so love this product, I thought my brushing technique was good, it wasn't, but with the coaching app and choosing the right setting I'm hitting 100% every time!!
I love using this toothbrush and app, though if I'm not careful I could lose it to my son!!

Jonno92 • 17/06/2019 - 19:52

This is a brilliant product especially how you can track what you do and find ways of improving your techniques and. I think the teeth guild of brushing is great I’m spender enough time on each section of my mouth and brushing more efficiently.

My teeth feel great and I have noticed a slight change in colour so all in all whiter and cleaner teeth.

Amazing product

holliecampbell • 17/06/2019 - 20:01

I have left a comment in the other blog to share my personal experience with receeding gums and this app pointing out exactly why but in addition to that my 8 year old was able to put his head on my toothbrush and we have been able to identify where he needs to brush more. He has tooth decay and has already lost two teeth to this so having something to check back to so we can see improvements will really change his life allowing him to brush properly and save his precious teeth!

Sabrinashort • 17/06/2019 - 21:22

Ok so I’m amazed at the brushing coach I’ll be honest I forget to brush my teeth at night and just fall asleep on the sofa as I’m a tired mummy, however the app reminds me so I go and do them and my teeth have not ever been this amazing. I mean I probably used to forget to brush at night maybe 1-2 times a week now I don’t miss a single one and I’m even doing extra flossing and brushing after sugary snacks as it’s coaching me to get healthier gums it’s so so good. I have benefitted 100%

Daytripper • 18/06/2019 - 11:55

Love the Genius X - now I'm totally obsessed with the app and checking which teeth I've missed!!!

loopylis87 • 18/06/2019 - 15:16

I have tried three times to submit my review but it won’t let me.

Owlbird30 • 18/06/2019 - 18:08

The oral b app has been a life saver I was never brushing my teeth long enough before and didn't understand why my gums was bleeding and now my gums do not bleed and I now know to blush for longer and my mouth feels a lot healthier for it.

redwineaje62 • 18/06/2019 - 19:03

The brushing coach is certainly useful! We all think we know how to brush our teeth but the brushing coach app is illuminating and highlights areas for improvement such as pressure used and equal time on each area etc!

abacus939 • 18/06/2019 - 19:17

Honestly I have used the brushing coach a few times, but didn't see the need to use it too much, as it gave me a 100% score each time! But I chalk this up to being very used to using an electric toothbrush... And giving in to nagging from my dentist! That said, the app had no issues connecting to the Genius X despite having an Android. The only thing I would say is that the app is telling me I only brushed my teeth once on a few days, even though I brush them twice a day 99% of the time. Maybe there's a glitch with my phone/app. I'd say the best thing about the toothbrush is definitely the different modes, definitely the most powerful toothbrush I've had.

luckyangel • 18/06/2019 - 22:54

Fantastic exactly what I needed and now going to convert everyone to this new technology

Larissa_t • 19/06/2019 - 11:57

Great toothbrush - i cannot believe how clean my teeth feel after using this! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to buy an electric toothbrush!

nats.neat.place • 19/06/2019 - 15:09

this looks brilliant. I've always had trouble with gum disease and my gums bleed pretty bad at times. Something like this would be so beneficial for people who suffer from gum disease like me, it's amazing what we can do with technology these days.

MN • 19/06/2019 - 16:00

The coaching and education from the Oral-B Genius X is a great feature - my favourite part is the pressure sensor feedback, fantastic for sensitive gums, helping to promote the best dental health possible.

Alvii • 19/06/2019 - 18:51

This sounds like a fantastic idea, I can imagine a lot of people could benefit from a technology such as this. My current electric toothbrush has the technology to vibrate after 30 secs to alert me to brush a different area of my mouth. But it would definitely be nice to have the more advanced technology that could perhaps tell me where I could improve when brushing my teeth.

Mirelka • 19/06/2019 - 21:18

Very good app. It help you so much how to clean your teeth properly!

Rochelle • 19/06/2019 - 22:45

The brushing coach is soooo good. Really helps you make sure your giving your teeth a proper clean. It’s so easy to miss parts. But with the coaching, it’s a thing of the past!!!

ulstersajida • 20/06/2019 - 20:06

I’ve loved using the smart toothbrush as it has made me realize that my brushing is not as good as I thought it was. I was not brushing for long enough and missing vital areas. With the smart toothbrush oral b app, I have reinvented my brushing techniques to become more effective. Thank you for the opportunity

kazzywazzy • 21/06/2019 - 09:19

Loving the app, shows me when I'm brushing too hard, my teeth feel so clean better than my last dentist appointment and they are also beginning to look whiter, both the toothbrush and app are fab and I'm loving them.

sammyconz • 21/06/2019 - 15:21

This feature is amazing it's got me into a great routine now. I aim to do 100% coverage every time now. I've just downloaded to funny pictures so I'll be uploading some later lol

micky_lovesfun • 22/06/2019 - 09:12

Does exactly what it says on the tin. This is such an intelligent piece of equipment you won't want to be without. So many features though coaching app is my new best friend 😁

Ange101 • 22/06/2019 - 10:26

This has been a game changer for me as I recently learned that I have gum disease. (apparently hereditary) I am still using it and wondering how I will manage without it. It's been my personal assistant - ensuring that I'm giving my enamels and gums the very best oral care. Thank you.

joymc • 22/06/2019 - 20:36

Still loving my new tooth brush
Love that the app is showing me how to improve my brushing routine and is showing me that I have improve since starting the trial
I am so happy I was chose to be part of the team as I have learnt how to clean my teeth properly and I am also loving telling all my friends and family about the fantastic oral B Genius x explaining the app which is amazing

Rolo519 • 24/06/2019 - 03:23

I initially struggled to connect my phone to the app but oral b where fantastic with customer service and got me up and running. I personally find I don't make full use of the app by having it open when brushing but the data automatically syncs in the background so you can view at leisure.

Rachz • 24/06/2019 - 10:28

Well I was brushing okay but I don’t think I was paying enough attention to brushing teeth until Oral-B Genius X. I was moving the brush too fast without leaving it to clean each teeth for few seconds. Wit the guidance of my personal AI coach my teeth feel super clean. Don’t even feel like I need to floss... yey!
