Oral-B - The Future of Brushing

Oral-B

Ultimate Gum health with Oral-B Genius X

As a member of the savvy circle and a participant in this Oral-B Genius X project team, you’re on your way to becoming a pro when it comes to squeaky clean teeth. But remember, when it comes to oral health, your gums are just as important as your pearly whites.

Oral-B

Gum disease doesn’t stand a chance

Inflamed, tender and bleeding gums can all be early indicators of gum disease but even without any of these symptoms you could still be brushing too hard. Thankfully, the experts at Oral-B pretty much wrote the rulebook on brushing techniques and have devised a way to ensure you always get it right. Not only does the Oral-B Genius X feature exclusive gum guard protection (which lights up to let you know when you’re applying too much pressure), but it also sends personalised, real-time feedback to the Oral-B app to help you get it just right.

Your gum health journey with the Oral-B app

If you’ve ever worried about gum health or even if you just want to check that you’re doing the best you can, you can start a personalised journey in the app and receive regular feedback and brushing tips.

And the benefits don’t end there, the Genius X:

  • Offers up to 100% more plaque removal than a manual toothbrush
  • Gives a personalised clean (thanks to six different brushing modes including whitening and gentle clean)
  • Lets you know when you’ve brushed for the recommended two minutes and more…

Seriously, what’s not to like?

@all: Do you know if you use the right amount of pressure when you brush?

This toothbrush is making me realise that I need to spend more time brushing my teeth and ensuring I am reaching all area's of my mouth, I've only had it a few days but thinks its a really good product and will improve my dental hygiene.

micky_lovesfun • 11/06/2019 - 10:51

Been using my tothbrush(Amelia) for 3 days now. Got to say my gums have not bled once since using her. Loving the shiny white teeth and have received compliments on how well they look. Thanks Oral B and Supersavvy circle. 😁

Clairecar73 • 11/06/2019 - 10:52

I never actually realized i was putting too much pressure on my teeth and gums! Since using the new oral b toothbrush along with the app it has actually taught me how i should be brushing my teeth properly !. No wonder i sometimes have had bleeding gums after brushing. Since using this and realising my mistakes from brushing i have had no bleeding at all !!

Sally • 12/06/2019 - 10:18

Dear savvy circler Clairecar73, great to hear you're improving your burshing experience with the Oral-B Genius X!

jimmumohan • 11/06/2019 - 10:52

Yes.Since i have a sensitive gum it bleeds a little if i put more pressure.Also while using oral b genius x toothbrush..It shows whether im exerting too much pressure or not..which is quite handy too.

Samd85 • 11/06/2019 - 11:05

Loving the Oral-B app, and the toothbrush, I knew I always applied a little too much pressure and my gums have always bled. I’ve used the toothbrush for 3 days now and today I had no bleeding. The first day it bled, day too a little and today none. It’s great watching the app to n ow what I am doing right. I love the toothbrush. Thanks super savvy an Oral-B for the opportunity 😀

MichalS • 11/06/2019 - 11:11

Couple weeks ago I seen dentist and she aware me that my gums are raised because I'm using to much pressure when tooth brushing. With new Genius X toothbrush I have no problem at all with determinate pressure what I need to use, never been on red:). Also app giving me chance to increase cleaning skills. Great product.

greglee • 11/06/2019 - 11:15

Do love the App so helpful to see how much time i am spending brushing my teeth as well as to see the areas that i am doing in real time through the app.Like others did get bleeding gums the first time but now thats stopped very impressed so far.

Tweety2002 • 11/06/2019 - 11:17

I do suffer from gum disease and bleeding gums. My dentist advised me to use an electronic tooth brush to help with this issue. I've been using it for 5 days now following all the advise that the app gave me and already my gums are bleeding less. The Genius X toothbrush as already helped me within the few days I've been using it. My mouth feels different and fresh after each use.

sarah_123 • 11/06/2019 - 11:21

Ive been using too much pressure! This fab toothbrush really makes you think and spend the time to brush correctly.

Sethie • 11/06/2019 - 11:23

First of all I want to say thank you Oral-B and Savvy for letting me to try this brilliant toothbrush....I know I’ve only it used it for a couple of days but what a difference it has made... nice and light to brush I have arthritis in my hands so it was very easy to hold ... lovely clean mouth feels very clean and tingly like when you have just been to the dentist.....like the idea of the brush informing you if you have brushed properly....it was very easy to set up with your mobile and I like all the different things it can do .... while I think it’s a super toothbrush I think it might be fussy for people to use in the morning going to work as some people don’t have much time....I also like the sleek travel case nice and light for travelling great ideas for the adapter .....I really like the ideas of a flosser brush head that is a great idea (cannot wait for them to come out) ....I like the idea of it telling you how have brushed your teeth .... the best thing is I’ve thrown my Manuel toothbrush away you have converted me thank you I love it

Becgumme • 11/06/2019 - 11:26

The toothbrush is amazing! I felt like I had a dentist clean and polish even after the first use! It’s really interesting to see what areas I’ve been missing brushing properly all this time.

Sethie • 11/06/2019 - 11:26

Yes I did find that I was using the right pressure ... my teeth’s and gums feel fantastic... I cannot stop smiling

MrsMCC85 • 11/06/2019 - 11:26

I've realised that I use too much pressure, thinking that's the best way to brush.
Since using the brush and been alerted to the fact I've been too harsh, I've let the brush do it's own thing and I must admit my gums feel alot better!
All in all I'm enjoying the experience and challenging myself each time I clean my teeth!

Dark_Lord_Meh • 11/06/2019 - 11:32

I’ve been using the toothbrush since Friday, and the app shows I don’t apply too much pressure whilst brushing, and I’ve had no bleeding from my gums

ulstersajida • 11/06/2019 - 11:37

I’ve only been using the smart toothbrush for a few days and I’ve already noticed a great difference. Smooth feeling teeth and gums with a pearly white smile.
My daughter wants one too 😂
lol

samspam2019 • 11/06/2019 - 11:40

Only been using the toothbrush a few days and my teeth feel super clean, the app is so useful to make sure I'm not applying too much pressure!

Sallykl • 11/06/2019 - 11:40

I've realised I am using the right amount of pressure when I brush! This is very useful because when I apply a little bit more pressure is starts flashing red. I do however still get bleeding when I brush, it is reducing though!

loukas29 • 11/06/2019 - 11:42

Feedback from my first two brushes suggested that I was applying too much pressure around the molar region of my mouth. Based on this feedback I've adjusted my brushing technique to include less pressure, better overall coverage and longer duration to achieve a far superior brushing experience. I love the brushing evaluation feature and the way in which you can track a personalised journey to visualise results. The daily/weekly/monthly badges are a great addition to improve motivation for excellent brushing even when you're pushed for time. The only downfall I've noticed with regards to the pressure sensor is that sometimes, when I'm brushing my tongue, it thinks I'm applying too much pressure on my gums.

littleforestowl • 11/06/2019 - 11:44

I didn’t realise how much pressure I was using until I received this brush. I’ve used an Oral-B toothbrush in the past and my mum would laugh that it lights up like a Christmas tree. But with Oral-B Genius X, I get actual alert warnings as I’m brushing, as well as reports. I’m far more aware of the pressure I’m using now and feel happy getting good reports every time I brush now.

averagebeauty • 11/06/2019 - 11:44

I have been applying too much pressure with my manual toothbrush for sure. When I started using Oral B Genius X, I didn't apply much pressure and still I had the red light :P so this features is definately brilliant!

MarshK • 11/06/2019 - 11:49

I've been testing the toothbrush for a few days now and so far I'm finding it brilliant for highlighting my brushing mistakes. Mostly it's telling me I am using way too much pressure! No wonder my gums have been sore in the past.

BeckieMac • 11/06/2019 - 11:56

Loving this toothbrush and the app I can feel and see the difference in my teeth and my brushing skills such a great product 👏🏻 X

Mariapipe • 11/06/2019 - 12:07

Wowzers what can i say....other than this is the best electric toothbrush i have ever tryed, i hve been using it now for 3 days and what a difference, the power and different settings makes it different too the others, by having the app it tells you how long you have brushed and if your brushing them right and also gives you tips, the charger is great and takes no time too re charge. This is the best one yet and would definatly reccomend too anyone who wants a decent and sturdy toothbrush.

Ange101 • 11/06/2019 - 12:15

It was a bit of a shock to realise that I was brushing too fiercely and leaving some areas of my mouth with minimal attention. This is going to be a game changer for me as, like most of us, I brush my teeth on Automatic Pilot and go on with my daily life with no further thought about how efficiently I'm treating my mouth. The brush is a little firmer than I would normally use but this is making me treat my enamels with a little more respect.

Leighmurrrr • 11/06/2019 - 12:15

Day 5 of using my Genius X and it's safe to say, I'm in love. An informative, efficient and, dare I say it, enjoyable, way to make sure my mouth is clean & hygienic.

SonjinYork • 11/06/2019 - 12:27

I love the app, knowing I’m reaching all areas and feeling my teeth do clean after.
Few hiccups, seemed to overwrite my brushing yesterday with 0% covered with over 3 minutes brushing but all in all it’s a great experience. I applied for my daughter too but she didn’t get to test so I bought her an electric one anyway and she stands next to me and follows the app! Her brushing time and actual cleanliness have improved too just from following mum so thank you so much for this experience.
I used oral b electric previously but nothing close to this for giving you a whole new education on teeth brushing! 😁😁😁😁

natbagz • 11/06/2019 - 12:31

Now I do! I was clearly using too much pressure before.
the only thing I am finding hard is remembering to take my toothbrush to the bathroom with me!
Still has the two minute timer if not connected to your phone which is great and flashes red if too much pressure is applied.
I really hope i get to keep mine!

Sally • 12/06/2019 - 10:27

Dear savvy circler natbagz, great to hear that you have discovered you were usuing too much pressure and can now take more care of your gums. Good luck!

Pandasand1 • 11/06/2019 - 12:36

I have opted for a gum health journey with the toothbrush. I have discovered that I have a habit of not brushing the upper back teeth on one side and using too much pressure on the back lower teeth on the same side. Fascinating and also educational. I now am making a special effort to put these errors right and I'm sure my dentist will approve!!

mrskatebrown • 11/06/2019 - 12:52

I was very surprised to learn that I was using the right amount of pressure in all areas of my teeth - I thought I wasn't using enough pressure but alas I was wrong - I've scored 0 seconds in all of my sessions! For the first session I wanted to be as honest with myself as possible so I didn't look at the app as I was brushing my teeth and cleaned them like I normally would and I was right about one thing - I was definitely not cleaning my teeth for long enough! Oops!

Kalamity_kyrie • 11/06/2019 - 12:58

On my first use of the toothbrush, I was shocked to see I was using too much pressure, no wonder I had sore gums! I love the fact that when you're brushing you have visual and physical feedback on the app and toothbrush to tell you once you have brushed an area enough and if you are brushing too hard. Up until now I had no idea!
I am very impressed so far, what a clever little toothbrush!

DJones82 • 11/06/2019 - 13:12

Haven't had a issue with pressure says I'm doing it right, loving the toothbrush 😁😁😁

Beauty_Junkie • 11/06/2019 - 13:14

How did I live without this amazing toothbrush??? Thank you so much for the opportunity to try it. I felt like I had a dentist clean and polish even after the first use! It’s really interesting to see what areas I’ve been missing and how much pressure I was applying. It’s like having a professional clean every time I brush

Beck1980 • 11/06/2019 - 13:17

I've been using this new brush since Friday and for someone who has to use a soft normal brush due to bleeding gums I have NOT had any since Friday. This brush is really helping me and my gums 💗💗

Maria1df • 11/06/2019 - 13:30

Fantastic toothbrush, so powerful. But it has made me realise that I brush my teeth way too hard .
Am really trying to be gentler and not use as much pressure. The toothbrush literally does all the work .
The only problem I have is remembering to take my phone into the bathroom which I never have done !
It’s very interesting to watch the areas of teeth being cleaned and any missed places

hanenenasr • 11/06/2019 - 13:32

wooow this tooth brush is stunning. i don't believe that technologie can do all this. there is no way to leave gum in your mouth when using it

Katherineglover • 11/06/2019 - 13:33

i love the interactive mouth which shows bright white when you have cleaned all your teeth. I have also realised i was applying too much pressure as now i have changed my technique as directed- no bleeding gums. The timer and app is making me clean for over 2 minutes each time, when before i must have been just over a minute!!

Aleksandra3 • 11/06/2019 - 13:44

This is a super toothbrush, I am less and less pressing on the gums, and my teeth are whiter 😊

Amoolie • 11/06/2019 - 14:47

My teeth are spotless. They feel clean and they are shinning shining. I am in love with all the different features Whitening, tounge cleaning, floss and the reminders you can set really enjoy cleaning my teeth and finding out what part we neglect and need to brush. The Bluetooth feature is geniuses.

MunchKim • 11/06/2019 - 15:01

It seems like I'm doing well with my gum health as I've had no bleeding and only applied too much pressure for 0.2 sec in total while using this brush and the app. I really like the soft brush head that came with it as it seems to do a good job with my teeth and it has a great mouth feel too!

Nukashu • 11/06/2019 - 15:21

It is great to use an electric brush to educate my daughter how to brush at all sides of the teeth, even the ones that are unreachable with a traditional toothbrush. The light indicating too much pressure is genius as it helps train the juniors into the best brushing habits.

CWarrilow93 • 11/06/2019 - 15:26

This toothbrush is amazing makes your mouth feel so clean and teeth sparkling love the different options of brushing with the app too. Thank you so much

A-JAY • 11/06/2019 - 15:31

I love new toothbrushes. Second day using and so far my brushing tecnique is all good. 100% coverage, 0% too much pressure and 100% brushing score. Trying out the journey section with conquering plaque in 4weeks.

Mayo • 11/06/2019 - 16:00

I’ve always wondered if I was brushing my teeth correctly, now i know i wasnt brushing for long enough and I was missing the back teeth of my mouth on the left hand side. Really useful having an app to keep me inline for a healthy mouth. My teeth feel so much cleaner.

Sally • 12/06/2019 - 10:31

Dear savvy circler Mayo, it's so nice to see our whole amazing team improving their brushing habits in this project with Oral-B. Well done!

dimark6267 • 11/06/2019 - 16:12

Love my new toothbrush, it cleans amazingly. Makes my teeth squeaky clean. Good to see where I am not cleaning properly and that I am not applying too much pressure.

christine21 • 11/06/2019 - 16:16

first time user for an electric toothbrush - and what a difference - my teeth/gums feel so much cleaner. This toothbrush does all the hard work. I know that I am doing 2 minutes brush time, which I never really knew with a manual brush. thank you. pam

Rach23 • 11/06/2019 - 16:34

Love this toothbrush .. can't believe how much better this one is compared to the electric brush I had before! My gums are so much better since using this! Great features to show you exactly how to do it! Brilliant all round!

lauzc87 • 11/06/2019 - 16:59

I'm absolutely loving my new toothbrush and the wonderful app. I didn't realise how poorly I was actually brushing my teeth, but the app and my current whitening journey that I'm on for two weeks has helped me to ensure that I am brushing all parts of my teeth, back and front. I'm completely converted!

Daggerss • 11/06/2019 - 17:14

Omg! This is a game changer! I use electric toothbrush every day but and thought that my teeth are clean, but since using Genius X i realised what clean teeth should feel like! It provides such a fresh feeling in my mouth. Different modes that can be used are just amazing. Once you try Genius X you wont go back - i know i wont! So happy im part of this project!

paspatu • 11/06/2019 - 17:39

The toothbrush along with the guide if the app is amazing. Three days in and my teeth already feel in much better health. Thank you for the opportunity 😍

Wardy664 • 11/06/2019 - 18:03

Im not applying as much pressure as I used to thanks to this genius X my gums have not bled in days its fabuloussss... Just wow, I never thought I would ever enjoy brushing my teeth, dont get me wrong I brush them everyday but it always felt like a chore, I like to get up and eat breakfast before I brush my teeth as it makes your morning coffee taste funny🙄 if you do it before hand any way running late mad rush up stairs dressed half way down the stairs to run back up rush that tooth brush round my teeth then go Now OMG I'm loving this tooth brush now I've used an electric tooth brush for as long as I can remember but this really is something else my teeth feel incredible and the app has me hooked and working towards the achievements is a added extra I like my apps I have one to work my washer and dryer my alexa every thing I do daily I use a app for dieting drinking water banks Bill's gas electricity etc I NEVER in a million years thought I would be using it with a smart toothbrush I've got to say im really blown away also had a back tooth removed a few weeks ago and my gums still abit tender the sensitive motion is fantastic dont hurt abit I'm well impressed and the best bit is my other half is soooooo jealous it's great thankyou oral b what a fabulous job

enzina • 11/06/2019 - 18:18

I am very careful not to apply too much pressure, my dentist told me that again and again. I don’t suffer from bleeding gums but from nerve damage due to Type 1 diabetes, this also affects facial nerves. I can’t feel any irritation with the brilliant Genius X toothbrush, what an awesome gadget.

Scousegemz • 11/06/2019 - 18:38

My little man is enjoying using it,he received the white one,hes never had an electric toothbrush before and never has used one. I downloaded the app and found this easy to use and manoeuvre around fairly quickly without any struggles, ive used this app to keep an eye on how long he was brushing for, how hard etc and caught him out afew time since not brushing long enough or hard enough and just staring at the bristles going round lol!! honestly though im loving this toothbrush and the fact i can track his brushing, i find it very important too make sure your childrens teeth are being cared for. My Litlun loves it and finds it fun to be brushing his teeth. So thank you Oral-B Junior Smart

Paul89 • 11/06/2019 - 18:47

got my toothbrush about 3 days ago and since day one i can feel and see a difference my teeth and mouth feel so much cleaner then using a manual toothbrush love the app that works along side it showing you where your putting to much pressure in one spot best toothbrush iv ever had

Lummey • 11/06/2019 - 19:34

Love the toothbrush, I find that I spend more time brushing my teeth when synced to the app than when I do it without the app open. I would also find it more helpful if, when not using the app, the buzzing timer was 20 seconds intervals rather than 30 second intervals - that would make it easier to divide the mouth up into sections to fit into the recommended 2 minutes to clean your teeth.

edwards83 • 11/06/2019 - 19:37

I already used an entry level Oral B electric toothbrush but this is a whole different level. Brushing my teeth has become exciting and something I look forward to doing!

JoeFrankel • 11/06/2019 - 20:03

Prior to using this toothbrush I was using a manual brush and would often spit out a little bit of blood at the end. Obviously this was deeply concerning, however a most recent visit to the dentist revealed my gums are in good health and that it's most likely down to me brushing too hard and I should maybe consider flossing too. The technology in this toothbrush alongside the Oral-B app is extremely useful in notifying me in real time when I am applying too much pressure. Both the app and the toothbrush flash red to warn me to apply less pressure. Following the clean the app coaches you on how to improve your brushing technique to avoid damaging your gums. Since beginning use of this toothbrush, I am spitting out blood far less often. What incredible and useful technology!

Amylou80 • 11/06/2019 - 20:24

I love this toothbrush, the app has made me realise that I wasn't concentrating on all of my teeth properly and has quickly helped me rectify this.

gebo84 • 11/06/2019 - 21:09

The app really makes a difference to your brushing! Made me realise I need to spend a lot more time brushing my teeth. The visual of the teeth turning white really helps to keep you on track and target the correct areas. Only a couple days in but I’m impressed!

Sally • 12/06/2019 - 10:36

Dear savvy circler gebo84, great to hear that you ar impressed. There is a lot of excitement around this product and savvy circlers have never had such clean teeth!

AZ1715 • 11/06/2019 - 21:18

I've found that I am more careful with this toothbrush than I have been with a manual one and the app makes me more conscious of the pressures that I am applying. So far I am loving it and this in turn makes me smile more!

Star1000 • 11/06/2019 - 21:34

I always thought and assumed I was using the right amount of pressure to really clean my teeth as my teeth are sensitive. However the app has told me I'm applying too much. I'm starting to gradually get lighter handed and im getting there thanks to help from the brush. I had no idea I was using too much pressure and I'm happy the app tells me immediately and it helps. No more inflamed or bleeding gums.

gerihen • 11/06/2019 - 21:36

I’ve been using my brush for 3 days now and I love it. It’s a great colour and I like that you can pick the colour of the neck section. It’s also a better shape and easier to hold than my previous Oral-B smart toothbrush. I use the app in the morning as I find it too time consuming at bedtime when the others in my household want to use the bathroom. I’ve been getting a bit carried away with it and find I’m brushing my teeth for about 3 minutes. My pressure reading is perfect and my general brushing is over 90% which I hope to improve on.

vfem59 • 11/06/2019 - 22:00

The brush is easy to hold and use … Well done Oral B :)

Bixybee • 11/06/2019 - 22:24

I’ve had this brush 5 days now so 10 sessions. I only brushed too hard for 0.2% on one session, the rest have been 0% and this small amounts time was only because the app didn’t seem to be picking up where I was brushing so I pressed a bit harder. I already knew my pressure was mainly okay as my previous electric toothbrush has a pressure sensor which would light up if I brushed too hard but it’s a fab feature that I have definitely benefited from in the past as prior to using that I *was* brushing too hard for my gums. What I have discovered using this is that I spent more time brushing my front teeth than the back ones so I love the real-time display where it gradually lights up the teeth to show when you’ve brushed them enough, it has definitely got me brushing all the right places now. Very happy with results so far - I am taking the plaque removal journey and my teeth are so squeaky clean and shiny, just like after a dentists visit!

Paddy0117 • 11/06/2019 - 22:30

Been using this brush only 2 days and wow what a toothbrush gives that squeaky teeth dentist clean every time AMAZING

loka_69 • 11/06/2019 - 22:47

I just received my toothbrush today😍😍😍 it looks amazing and feels great in hand as well. I used it first time tonight with the app and I can't believe the cleanliness feeling in my mouth! It is great and I can feel that my teeth and mouth hygiene will benefit so much from this smart toothbrush! Can't wait to use it again in the morning!Thank you very much supersavyme team for a chance to try it❤

dee85 • 11/06/2019 - 23:04

I received my toothbrush on Friday, what an absolutely wonderful piece, my teeth already feel so much cleaner! It also makes you realise how you’re brushing! I was not brushing right at all! I hope this will help with my gum disease also, thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity 😃 happy brushing!

ania • 12/06/2019 - 08:19

I have very sensitive gums, and I need to be careful when I'm brushing my teeth. Oral-B Genius X is amazing as it gives me more confidence, now I have big support on how to brush my teeth without much pressure to my gums.

hayleyshero • 12/06/2019 - 08:25

I used to think I brushed my teeth well but I was definitely ignoring areas of my mouth and gums (as evidenced by a dentist visit this week). Really can see the difference in my brushing already

MFTester • 12/06/2019 - 09:13

I’ve been using a manual toothbrush forever this post has made me realise I defo think I need to invest in a electric one I’ve never had problems with my teeth but who wouldn’t want a toothbrush that cleans upto 100% more plaque!!

mellywelly63 • 12/06/2019 - 09:17

made me realise how badly I brush my teeth and that i put way to much pressure on certain teeth and miss some teeth all together. This really helps me focus on my brushing time

Sally • 12/06/2019 - 10:39

Dear savvy circler mellywelly63, we're glad you are as impressed with the brushing coach as we are!

Talilb • 12/06/2019 - 10:13

This toothbrush is changing my routine so much! I never knew that i was being too heavy handed on my teeth! Im absolutely loving this tooth brush! The app helps so much as well, such and improvement on the app services i have with my previous oral b tooth brush. Can honestly say im super impressed!

Mirelka • 12/06/2019 - 10:18

The toothbrush is amazing! The app help you clean your teeth properly and shows you if you put too much presure and where to foucus. I had a little bleeding when first brushed them with the Oral-B toothbrush, but I realise that I put a lot of presure. Since then I had no bleeding at all. You fell them so clean like you've been to the dentist. Its just brilliant!

Willjones90 • 12/06/2019 - 10:20

This brush is amazing! I’ve never felt like my teeth have been so clean. I love the app that shows you where you have cleaned correctly and where needs more work.
Still getting to grips with the different settings as it doesn’t really say much about which does what on the app, but eager to keep going!
Loving it so far!

EmilyVBird • 12/06/2019 - 10:23

Loving my toothbrush, the app is great too. My coaching score has gone from 65% to 93% and my teeth feel so much better too. As I used to own an oral b that used to vibrate when you applied too much pressure, I have been scoring 0% for applying to much pressure

Duffydion • 12/06/2019 - 10:26

I am loving the Genius X toothbrush. The head is so much better than the ones I use on my old electric toothbrush (which is also Oral B). I have had problems with my gums bleeding alot when I was brushing, but since using the Genuis X the bleeding had all but stopped. My teeth look and feel cleaner than they ever have before. Also the accompanying app has been great at getting me to concentrate on all areas of my teeth and making sure I have spent enough time on brushing. So far, I am very happy with the Genius X and am contemplating getting the childrens one for my son when they are in shops.

Charlie79 • 12/06/2019 - 10:50

I have realised over the last few days how rubbish my old electric toothbrush really was. I’m loving clean feel I now have, just need to get to grips with all the settings

I’ve only been using this amazing toothbrush for a few days now and I can already feel my teeth are super clean. I’ve never used an electric toothbrush before, so I was not expecting anything 𝗟𝗶𝗳𝗲 changing as such, but wowie this toothbrush has changed my life for the better! I can’t wait to see even better results as I continue to use it! Thank you so much Oral B genius X, I love you so much!

So amazing to use it. Felt like I have been brushing wrong all along. Putting way too much pressure on some teeth’s and nothing on the others. Now I know how long to brush one area of the teeth.

I have been using this toothbrush a few days now and I cannot sing its praises enough. I absolutely love it. Using it has educated me. It has made me realise that I do not spend enough time brushing and also that I can brush too hard also. My teeth feel amazing after using it, just like after a dentist visit. I must admit that the first use was a little daunting (as it is each time I get a new brush) as it sounds like being at the dentist with the drill. Luckily it feels nothing like it

Dear savvy circler Debsjeav, glad to hear that you are experincing great results!

This toothbrush has made me realise how much pressure I use (too much!!) and that I miss certain areas when brushing - my teeth feel so much cleaner after brushing now!!

Nylesmummy • 12/06/2019 - 14:40

Cannot believe how much I have learnt from the toothbrush and my brushing technique since joining this campaign. I used to suffer with my gums bleeding but my dentist could never figure out why, well thanks to Artificial Intelligence it seems I was using way to much pressure when brushing, which was scraping my gums causing the bleeding. After following the oral b app advice and guidance my teeth haven’t bled at all, which is absolutely amazing as teeth are and extremely important part of a person and they give you confidence and create a beautiful smile so I was always concerned and worries but now I needn’t be. The app also help me discover that I wasn’t brushing my back bottom set of teeth as much as I should have, I realised I used to concentrate and spend more time on my teeth that are actually visible and more towards the front. Really enjoying this experience and getting to try out more features, the reminders from flossing and brushing my tongue are also a fab addition. Just can’t believe how much healthier my teeth look and feel and really excited to continue with the campaign 🦷 🦷 🦷 🦷

Omg this brush is totally amazing it does so much and has taught me so much about how I brush my teeth and how I need to change the way I brush my teeth.
I love the app and how it even lets you change the colour this really has moved forward using smart technology. Thumbs up from me Oral-B x

lauradee • 12/06/2019 - 15:41

Never realised just technical you could get with a toothbrush! Ive been brushing my teeth for almost 43 years now and using the new Genius X 20000 has made me think I’ve been doing it wrong for all this time. My teeth feel a lot healthier with less gum sensitivity after using.

Paula72 • 12/06/2019 - 17:28

This trial is going to cost me a fortune as my whole family now want genius x oral b toothbrush. I love mine and the rose gold one is so pretty. My brushing is now more efficient thanks to the app. Worth every single penny

ivelina • 12/06/2019 - 20:14

Great toothbrush. I have always used an electric Oral B but never such a clever one! Great tips on pressure and coverage. Love the personalisation too. Toothbrushing does not have to be boring when you have this Genius!

Sally • 18/06/2019 - 09:37

Dear savvy circler ivelina, you're right, burshing your teeth does not have to be boring at all1

Daisybell3 • 12/06/2019 - 20:30

I love how this toothbrush is making me brush my teeth properly and spend more time cleaning them. The evaluation and assessment has been really good too.

asterix • 12/06/2019 - 20:36

When I was younger I used to brush my teeth and gums quite vigorously, and as a result the pressure started to affect my gums until a dentist told me to use less pressure. The beauty of this brush and the app you can be in greater control and you don’t need to wait for the dentist to work out that you using too much pressure, as you will already have dealt with it. I am pleased with the way the app talks to me and guides me so I reduce the pressure where needed.

e-numbers • 12/06/2019 - 21:54

Since using this toothbrush it has really opened my eyes to how I brush my teeth. I have discovered I use too much pressure when I brush and I didn’t brush all the sections of my teeth. Using the app helps me to focus on each section of my teeth and spend a bit longer on each! This brush has made brushing my teeth more fun! The lights on the handle is also cool :)

Julez86 • 12/06/2019 - 22:47

Its great that the brush lets you know you are applying too much pressure, and love how the app shows you where this is happening. I sometimes feel like I am not applying enough pressure, so would be great to get an indicator to let you know when you applying enough pressure.

I have a couple of issues with using the Genius X app. Firstly, you have to have locations set on before the app will work. I know why this is but I find it frustrating as I don't have locations set on as a matter of course, so I have to remember to turn it on before brushing then off again when I'm finished. The other issue is that I never usually take my phone upstairs so I have to remember to take it whenever I'm going to clean my teeth.
These things aside, I do like what the app does. The first couple of times that I used it I got quite low scores but I find that I'm now actually concentrating on how I clean my teeth and mouth so the scores are much, much better and my teeth feel much cleaner. It's definitely a very useful tool to teach you the best way to look after your teeth and mouth when brushing but I'm not yet sure that I would use it every time once I'd got into the habit of brushing properly. However, if this was the case, I'd still use it regularly to make sure that I'm keeping up the good work.
I absolutely love the travelling case especially as it can be used to charge the handle and the usb port is a stroke of genius.

This toothbrush is a game changer...it really helps to see how well you are brushing teeth and the pressure sensor is great. My teeth are feeling so much shinier.

Chappersloonpurler • 13/06/2019 - 06:04

I can imagine how cool the kids brush would be for them and a really good way of making them do two minutes.

WiktoriaG • 13/06/2019 - 10:16

I can’t imagine how I used to brush my teeth without the brushing coach! After 6 days my teeth seem whiter and are a lot shiner than with my previous toothbrush.

Rochelle • 13/06/2019 - 10:35

In such a short amount of time my dental hygiene routine has changed, it’s been upgraded. Now I’m always excited to go and brush my teeth😁.

Fatimahsalma • 13/06/2019 - 10:44

Never been so excited to brush my teeth before! They definitely feel cleaner than they used to with a manual toothbrush! The app is absolutely fantastic, it picks up the last cleaning session within seconds. Don't need to take your phone with you as once it syncs it picks it up regardless. So simple and convenient :)

Doodles789 • 13/06/2019 - 11:12

I’ve been using this for almost a week now and I’m very impressed. My teeth feel a lot cleaner and my mouth in general a lot fresher. I had bleeding gums on the first day but then nothing since! My overall gum health seems to be improving and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you supersavvyme for this opportunity and for teaching me how I should have been brushing all this time!

Winsea • 13/06/2019 - 13:35

I’ve always thought I was good with cleaning my teeth, then I used this toothbrush.. it is amazing, the feel of your mouth when you’ve used it is wonderful

Owlbird30 • 13/06/2019 - 14:54

Love this brush so much I was suffering from bleeding gums was so worried about my gums and since using it I've had no blood and a few times i realised I was pushing to hard with the brush and had a warning come up telling me , I would never of noticed otherwise.

lauzc87 • 13/06/2019 - 15:32

This is my full review I wrote, but told it was too long to upload as part of my official review. Gutted as spent a fair bit of time writing. Hoping I can post here!

I have been using the Oral-B Genius X with Artificial Intelligence for a few weeks now and have to say, I am an official convert!
Initially, I was a little apprehensive about what this brush could really offer in comparison with other electric toothbrush offerings out there on the market. As a current Oral-B user, my current toothbrush does the job and after seeing the dentist the other week, first time in three years, my teeth are in a great condition, so why do I need a new brush?
The features of the Genius X are unbelievable. Firstly, downloading the app, I set myself the two-week whitening challenge (other challenges can be chosen such as Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Pro-Clean and Tongue Cleaning). The brush connects to your phone via Bluetooth, and once I’d got the hang of this, it was easy to do. It also remembers and syncs days if you’re not able to connect to your phone straight away – sometimes I don’t always have my phone with me in the bathroom.
The best thing for me regarding this new Genius X brush, was the artificial intelligence. The brush has a built-in sensor that recognizes how you’re holding the brush and it can provide feedback as to which areas of your mouth you have covered and the speed and movement of your brushing. Following on from this, the app then looks at your brushing style in more detail and provides you personalised feedback so that you can make changes to how you’re brushing such as the number of surfaces you’re covering and the pressure – is it too much or too little.
Another fantastic part of this new brush, I found, was the coaching sessions. 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 travel a lot with work for my job, so the premium travel case was an added bonus. The toothbrush can also be charged through the case, perfect as well for when my hotel room is being cleaned and I don’t want to leave my toothbrush out on display. My current brush often gets squashed and the head deformed a little bit when I am travelling. To perfect this, in an ideal world, the case could have a build in battery which you charge, and therefore your toothbrush charges in the case each time. Initially, I did think this was what was involved with the premium case, but unfortunately, it still needs to be plugged in!
As a child still at heart, I love the badges in the app that you can collect! I think this is a great idea and encourages me to keep using the app each time.
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!

Sally • 18/06/2019 - 09:44

Dear savvy circler lauzc87, wow! Thanks for this great and detailed review!

Mikemc • 13/06/2019 - 21:10

I've used Braun electric toothbrushes for a long time now. Before the genius x if wasn't so easy to know when the pressure was too much old brush had a light, but difficult to spot when brushing) .

The combined feature of the light flashing and speed change coupled with the feed back from the app really are excellent at improving pressure and making it easier to brush correctly. We'll done Oral B for providing a first rate coach for my mouth!
