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?

how wrong I was brushing my teeth. I just realized my knowledgeable about brushing teeth was terrible bad. Just 2 minutes does not do much, and I am enjoying my new Tech and brushing 2 x a day . It is totally new experience, not only the time brushing, how do I hold and each area.

smart_pants • 13/06/2019 - 23:32

Well now i know i am using the right amount of pressure 😉.
Seriously this brush is so gentle on teeth. I can say surely, no harm is happening to my teeth.
I feel really bad for my poor teeth for my vigorous brushing in the past. This brush made me realise, how we are damaging our own gums just by brushing wrong. This is a must know for everyone. It protects gums from a lot of problems.
Sometimes my daughter's gums get really sore. She would benefit hugely from this kind of gentle brushing.

fairytan • 14/06/2019 - 01:16

This is great, I have found out that I used too much pressure for 1 second as I changed the angle of the brush. I have suffered from bleeding gums all my life but this has reduced that to almost nothing so far. I love using this brush, it tells me how long and how well I am brushing my teeth. It has changed the way I brush and made it more fun and interesting!

Rofkata • 14/06/2019 - 07:59

I didn't realise how hard I've been brushing, but I do now, I seem to be missing the same spot continuously, I'm so glad this was able to point it out to me. Having Dementia,I tend to forget how long I've been brushing and where and I'm finding this brush and app perfect.

Shellb159 • 14/06/2019 - 12:52

I am actually pleasantly surprised that I haven't triggered the pressure sensor when using the toothbrush and only experienced minor gum bleeding the first and second use. I did already use an electric toothbrush though and would expect the pressure to be more of issue to those who typically use a manual toothbrush.

epixelby • 14/06/2019 - 20:56

Can't believe I haven't been brushing my teeth properly for 26 years! It's crazy how much this makes a difference! I didn't know you had to brush your tongue back to front! I feel a lot less self-conscious about smokers breath, plus I've noticed that my gums are much healthier too, I have receding gums at the front of my bottom teeth and it is always really embarrassing, but using the toothbrush has helped stop my gums receding. The 'too much pressure' alert also really helps, especially as I haven't had any gum bleeding since using it!

Shazzyywazzyy • 15/06/2019 - 11:44

I was putting far too much pressure on brushing my teeth when all i needed is a much better toothbrush! I own an older version of the oral B but this is such an improvement! I love that i know what I’m doing right and wrong, i think my teeth appreciate it too 😁

KMars • 15/06/2019 - 19:59

I've always been told by the dentist that I brush too hard and I am wearing my enamel away. This brush has been a great help in combatting this problem by letting me know I need to ease off.

If • 16/06/2019 - 02:05

It has been a new experience, who knew that you could brush your teeth wrongly for so many years!!!! Love this brush and would absolutely recommend to all friends and family. My teeth are sueaky clean and dare I say slightly whiter. Winner all round.

VickiElleryJ • 16/06/2019 - 08:55

I never really realised that you could apply ‘too much pressure’ so it’s amazing to see these innovations thanks to Oral B

drmqn442 • 16/06/2019 - 15:37

This Oral-B Genius X sounds it is really good going on reading the reviews. Lot of positive people. Glad I waited to read the reviews before I got one for myself I really have been looking for a good toothbrush because I have a few problems with my teeth and gums not looking to healthy right now due to having throat cancer and it had a affect on my teeth and gums. I t cost a bit but I think it is worth it after reading the reviews. Will get one very soon when I got enough cash. Thanks everyone that has put the time in for good honest reviews.

Nikkielizabeth • 17/06/2019 - 09:03

Thanks never knew you could apply too much pressure the app is great now thanks to this amazing tooth brush it tells you. Thank you for letting me be part of the supersavvyme.

edziergas • 17/06/2019 - 13:01

Well, well, well what can I say? All those years I thought I am doing pretty grand job at cleaning my pearlies! Thanks GeniusX for proving me wrong!
I wish I was using the smooth brush when I was learning to brush as a kid! I really didn’t realise I put too much pressure on my gums and small changes suggested by coach made for amazing BIG difference! LOVE IT!

oxleym • 17/06/2019 - 13:34

Wow! Loving this toothbrush and it’s features. I’ve been trying the different settings and they’re great. I’ve found that I’m now brushing my teeth for longer and noticing when I’m pressing on too hard with the warnings. Im noticing a difference and very pleased with the results so far.

If • 17/06/2019 - 15:59

Still going well, beautiful clean teeth and getting whiter with just brushing on the whitening setting. The only thing I am struggling with is the tongue brushing as I have a hyper gag reflex and have used a metal tongue cleaner for years. I am persevering with it though.

Kellyp88 • 17/06/2019 - 17:21

This brush has changed my way of brushing completely. I never knew before that I was brushing too hard but this tells you instantly if you are brushing way too hard. Amazing!

Sally • 18/06/2019 - 10:17

Dear savvy circler Kellyp88, great to hear that you are brushing with the right pressure now!

Ange101 • 17/06/2019 - 17:55

It's a great feeling to realise that your brushing habits have changed. I used to think I was a thorough brusher but I've been too fierce on my enamels. I now give the session more thought and actually concentrate......and they say you can't teach an old dog..... loved this project.

Laura885 • 17/06/2019 - 19:07

My teeth are feeling so clean, what a fab toothbrush! 😁 have loved this project.

Seanbhoy • 17/06/2019 - 19:25

If only this technology was available 40 years ago, I would have more than one tooth to trial this product on 😉.
Compared to my Oral B Pro, well...to be fair it like comparing a Lada Samara to a Bugatti Veyron... this brush does it all, from a turbo boost pro clean, whitening mode, a sensual gum massage and tongue clean, what else could you need? Ah yes, an easy to install app that feeds back your cleaning habits and advises you where to improve your Dental Hygiene....

holliecampbell • 17/06/2019 - 19:58

I honestly cant believe how much this toothbrush is going to change my life. I have noticed for some time now my gums have been slightly receeding, when talking to the dentist he always asked if I brushed to hard and of course I said no because I didn't think I was! how wrong I was when this smart little device told me I would be causing damage to my gums with the amount of pressure I was putting on them! I could have caused some serious long term damage and I am forever grateful for being given a chance to test this wonderful product, its really life changing!

mrsheath84 • 18/06/2019 - 04:13

The app is grwt! It's showed me that I was applying too much pressure on my top back teethso I have adjusted technique

Sally • 18/06/2019 - 10:30

Dear savvy circler mrsheath84, We're happy to hear that you're improving you brushing technique!

loopylis87 • 18/06/2019 - 15:10

It was great to know I don’t use too much pressure, it’s always nice to know you are doing something right. Here’s to healthy, happy teeth.

Mirelka • 18/06/2019 - 15:50

This toothbrush is amazing! I didn't know that I'm missing to put more attention on some places and that putting extra presure! Its so helpful to know how to clean your teeth properly and to feel that you're improving your technique!

abacus939 • 18/06/2019 - 19:10

I love this toothbrush! Although I've had an Oral-B toothbrush for over ten years, so I am used to not putting too much pressure on my teeth, there were some areas of my mouth where the brush flashed red. This is one of the best features in my opinion, as I tend to brush my teeth for longer than 2 minutes (anyone else do this??), and am often worried about over-brushing my teeth. So the Genius X has definitely helped me to ease up on my poor teeth!

redwineaje62 • 18/06/2019 - 19:14

Gum health is extremely important to oral health, well that is what my dentist continually says! And now I can accurately monitor the pressure applied and be confident that I am using the correct amount! The Genius-X certainly is a Genius!

MBeau • 18/06/2019 - 20:32

This little machine is smart and when I mean smart, I mean exceptionally SMART but I guess the name of the toothbrush speaks for itself, after all it’s called GeniusX for a real good reason. Now I have not ever owned an electric toothbrush (I have used manual my whole life and was very PRO manual and anti artificial intelligences) but I now understand why my family and friends speak so highly of electric toothbrushes. The first day I used the GeniusX I was in shock, my teeth felt squeaky clean like I just had an appointment at my dentist. Theres an app that comes with this toothbrush which helps you track how to properly brush your teeth and assists me with my dental needs! You can customise the performance of your toothbrush to fit to your standards through the app which is pretty nifty and get this, you can even customise the light on the brush to fit your mood! I actually enjoy brushing my teeth now because lets be real, it gets boring using a manual brush and you’re having to put in work with your hand and then your arm aches, you're getting bored, sometimes you miss out brushing certain areas of your teeth etc etc (you know i'm right! right?)… but with the Oral B GeniusX toothbrush cleaning my teeth is now fun, its fun because this toothbrush pretty much does ALL the work for me and I actually feel confident and ready for my routine check up at my dentist because I now know my overall health of my teeth and gums. Thank you Oral B, you've honestly truly changed my life for the better. AMAZING.

blossom-5 • 18/06/2019 - 22:20

This AI toothbrush is amazing i never knew i was using so much pressure and missing parts of my teeth that need cleaning, this helped me improve my overall oral health and i am so loving it.

luckyangel • 18/06/2019 - 22:50

Life changing ! I didn’t even think I was using too much pressure until the app told me and I still didn’t think I was being too harsh but how wrong I am! It’s awesome advanced technology which we all need

Debdee66 • 19/06/2019 - 11:28

Gutted as I got caught short on my review and could happily have gone on for another 5000 words lol. Brilliant toothbrush, thanks for the opportunity :)

MN • 19/06/2019 - 16:06

I am very impressed by the Oral-B Genius X pressure sensor feature, guiding and educating you in how to get the best out of your dental routine. I also very much like the brush head which I find much better than my old one, leaving my teeth feeling smoother and cleaner from the first use.

Sapphire-Blue • 19/06/2019 - 18:42

This is one of the best electric toothbrushes I've ever used. The rose gold colour is divine. I love the different brushing modes and the fact that you can charge the toothbrush up in the travel case. My teeth and gums have never been so clean. I'm still having trouble connecting the toothbrush to the app but I will persevere. So far so good!

marisasexton • 19/06/2019 - 19:57

Was a bit apprehensive to start but love this brush. You can see the spots you are missing and pressure you are using. Very impressed

SallyP • 19/06/2019 - 22:36

I’m really aware of the amount of pressure I use now! Plus I can see where I need to clean and know I’ve done a proper job when using the coaching on the app!

Andreea121 • 19/06/2019 - 22:51

I have just realise that I was brushing my teeth in the wrong way,I though that pressure was the key wich is not,is the way you do it otherwise your gums can get affected and that can lead to problems for your oral health

BevvyBuys • 20/06/2019 - 22:37

From someone who has suffered with him disease, this toothbrush has revolutionised the way in which I brush and care for my gums. I've seen a massive decrease in bleeding gums and they look much pinker and healthier. Can't wait to show my dentist!

christine21 • 21/06/2019 - 11:49

I have suffered gum disease for a long time, but this toothbrush has shown me the correct way to brush and care for my gums and teeth. I used to have bleeding from gums , but this has definately helped, my gums look less red. visited my dentist yesterday and she is most impressed and confirmed that my gums and teeth have improved. can't be bad !!

Sally • 24/06/2019 - 13:16

Dear savvy circler christine21, great to hear that even your dentist is seeing the results!

sammyconz • 21/06/2019 - 15:23

I never knew it was me why my gums used to bleed and with this feature after a week of using this and not brushing so hard my gums are no longer bleeding. This is by far the best toothbrush I've ever used. I telly hope I get to keep it. 🤞

I have been trying to leave a comment for ages but I keep getting the oops message and telling me to try again later so I hope this message gets through. This is one of the best electric toothbrushes I've ever used. The rose gold colour is lovely. I love the different brushing modes and the fact that you can charge the toothbrush up in the travel case. There is even a USB point on the travel case so I can charge my phone at the same time as charging the toothbrush! My teeth and gums have never felt so clean. I'm still having trouble connecting the toothbrush to the app but maybe a reset will help. Can't fault the toothbrush though. It's fantastic!

Ange101 • 21/06/2019 - 16:56

I left my review on 13th June. Anyone else had an email stating that they hadn't left one yet or was it just a standard reminder? Thanks

Sally • 24/06/2019 - 13:17

Dear savvy circler Ange101, the email is not just for those who haven't written a review but also for those who haven't submitted their online report. You can find a link to the online report tool in the email or in the Oral-B section of your dashboard.

sazzleock • 21/06/2019 - 21:41

Literally ashamed of myself I have been brushing my teeth and gums for 34 years - surprised I have any gums left!! I feel like i know what pressure and time to allow my teeth to be super clean and healthy- the same feeling as coming out of the dentist chair after a polish!! so impressed !!

mushfik • 21/06/2019 - 23:03

This has to be my favourite toothbrush. Just realised how much I was missing when brushing and not putting the right pressure. So glad I’m part of this and now able to spend the right amount of time brushing with the app

CraftyElf • 21/06/2019 - 23:53

I have had no bleeding gums since using this brush. I love that it tells you if you are using too much pressure and which areas of your mouth you need to pay more attention to if you miss any areas when brushing. This toothbrush has definitely improved my brushing skills.

lisalisalisa72 • 22/06/2019 - 09:44

I have been using oral b electric toothbrushes for 30 years, mainly the basic models. The genuis x model has so many features. I never realised how hard i brush my teeth, and it warns me when i do. My gums now seem a healthier shade of pink. I did find the app a little difficult and still have not managed to work it all out yet. The battery life lasts just over a week. My teeth definitely feel cleaner and less stained. Im very happy with toothbrush. 10/10 for cleaning, 6/10 for the App.

Rachz • 24/06/2019 - 07:37

Great to have been selected for trying out new Oral-b Genius X even before they were launched. It’s the next generation of teeth brushing. Using together with the app, it cleans the teeth and leaves with a fresh feeling that you get after a proper floss. App and sensor connection is bit slow so it doesn’t track the brush movements accurately. But it indicates how long you’ve brushed, which areas completed, whether you’re brushing hard etc.. battery life is good. Overall a great brushing experience
