Oral-B - The Future of Brushing

Oral-B

Oral-B Junior Smart Brush – brushing made fun

Us grownups know how important brushing our teeth is but for kids two minutes of standing still and brushing can seem like an awfully long time!

Oral-B Junior Smart

The Oral-B Junior Smart Electric Toothbrush is the perfect starter toothbrush for children aged between 6 and 12 years of age, it even makes brushing fun!

The fun

Not only can kiddies entertain themselves by watching where the toothbrush is in the mouth in real-time but they can also add filters and take selfies as they brush. Plus, more filters are unlocked the longer they use the app for, turning toothbrushing into a game!

The facts

Great for kids and wonderfully reassuring for parents, the Oral-B Junior Smart Electric Toothbrush:

  • Removes more plaque than a manual toothbrush thanks to its gentle round brush head
  • Protects gums with Gum Pressure Control that activates a flashing red light and a slower brushing speed when brushing too hard.
  • Connects with FunZone in the Oral-B App via Bluetooth and encourages kids to brush for the dentist-recommended 2 minutes.
  • Vibrates every 30 seconds to alert your child to change the area that's being brushed.

Handy tips for fun brushing with kiddos

Brush together – If toothbrushing has become a pre-bedtime chore for your little one then why not mix things up by brushing teeth together as a family or getting their toys involved? When they see that the whole family brushes, things seem far more fun.

Let them choose the toothpaste – let them experiment with toothpastes and choose their favourite flavour until you find one that they love.

@all: Could your little one use a helping hand with their brushing?

My daughter has had some of her adult teeth from age 4 and her teeth have been a worry for me. Despite a good routine they seem discoloured I knew she needed better guiding. This toothbrush has achieved that already! Even she has said she knows how to brush her teeth properly now because of the app

EmilyVBird • 12/06/2019 - 10:17

What a fab way of teaching children how to brush properly. It turns a chore into a fun thing to do

Secretaybird74 • 12/06/2019 - 10:18

Teeth brushing is a contact chore in our house - its a battle every night and morning - something like this would definitely help

micky_lovesfun • 12/06/2019 - 10:21

My little boy is only 4 but I've had such an amazing experience with oral b I will definitely be buying one of these once he's old enough and recommending to all my friends. What a great way to teach children how to brush properly. Well done

Dawnielex • 12/06/2019 - 10:21

My little girl absolutely loves this toothbrush! The app is brilliant as it’s both fun and informative.

Sally • 12/06/2019 - 16:40

Dear savvy circler Dawnielex, great to hear that she loves it and that brushing time is now so much fun!

mneha • 12/06/2019 - 10:25

My little one loves this and this has made it easy and fun to brush her teeth.

chelseat123 • 12/06/2019 - 11:09

My daughter absolutely loves using her new oral b Toothbrush, it's fun and really encourages her to brush properly whilst using the app.

Tweety2002 • 12/06/2019 - 11:42

Unfortunately I dont have any children between that age however will be highly recommending to my family and friends to get on from my own experience. The app makes it fun all round making sure all areas are covered by brushing.

Debsfran • 12/06/2019 - 11:44

I do not have little ones at home but this tooth brush would have been a good send when my children were younger. I do not know any child that likes cleaning their teeth, but with the app it makes it fun. I would definitely encourage parents to invest in one of these toothbrushes for their children. I can imagine children wanting to brush their teeth more than the required amount of times per day.

ulstersajida • 12/06/2019 - 12:15

Looks like the children are having great fun. My daughter would have loved it !

alp1972 • 12/06/2019 - 13:12

What can I say apart from WOW it has always been a battle of the wills trying to get my daughter to brush her teeth twice a day. Since her new Oral B Junior Toothbrush arrived she has actually been asking me if she can brush her teeth ! When we opened the box she loved the design saying it looked like a Tom Gates book cover (her favorite author) and couldn't wait to try it . Now she is wanting to brush every day twice a day to get more points to open up more themes , at the moment she absolutely loves the cat theme but we have had so much fun trying them out . It is a great toothbrush but I love the app as well makes my life so much easier !

Barnes81 • 12/06/2019 - 13:17

My daughter loves this toothbrush and can't wait to brush her teeth each day.

greglee • 12/06/2019 - 14:01

Love the way the kids can really enjoy brushing there teeth and its so important for there dental health.

loukas29 • 12/06/2019 - 14:33

I do not have any children myself but I have a whole herd of nieces and nephews. They all love new technology so I can't wait to show off this swanky new toothbrush to them and how it connects to my smartphone (some of them are even more proficient with my phone than I am)! I will definitely be recommending the Oral-B Genius X AI to my brother's and sister's (and their children) particularly because of the achievement tab that gives a sense of accomplishment that is likely to encourage little ones to brush their teeth more effectively!

Sabrinashort • 12/06/2019 - 15:46

As my son has sensory issues he could use a helping hand and this looks perfect. Everything is there ready to keep him engaged and he is having problems with his teeth and gums at the moment due to lack of hygiene it’s a constant battle unless he uses mine which I can’t allow as it’s not hygienic to share. I can’t simply afford an electric one for him yet but when I can I will invest in one.

JT862 • 12/06/2019 - 16:09

Getting the kids to brush their teeth properly is always a challenge. This looks just the job for getting them to brush properly, and for 2 minutes.

Leakywoo • 12/06/2019 - 17:37

My daughter had the Disney oral b electric brush and app and really enjoyed getting rewards for brushing her teeth. Keep up the good work

Goodomens • 12/06/2019 - 18:45

My 8 year old has been using this for a few days now, and she loves it! However, we found the instructions weren't that clear so we didn't realise we could connect it to the funzone app. She's been using it with the regular app! So we shall give funzone a go tonight!

Kylie1011 • 12/06/2019 - 19:26

This sounds fantastic for little ones! Turning what children find a chore into a nice activity

asterix • 12/06/2019 - 20:40

I don’t have children, but I made mistakes when I was a child and brushed my gums with too much pressure. I think anything that can be done to help children not just clean their teeth, but to want to do it, and to clean their teeth properly. I am impressed with the thought of a funzone. Great step forward.

Paro • 12/06/2019 - 21:38

My little one has received his Oral B Junior Smart brush and he just loved it. It makes brushing fun with app. An excellent idea to encourage children to brush their teeth very thoroughly. The app is wonderful to demonstrate clearly , how to clean your teeth, mouth and gums.

Paro • 12/06/2019 - 21:58

My child has been chosen as a part of this project and he is very excited and thrilled by using his new Oral B Smart Junior tooth brush with Gum Pressured Control system. To act as a feather but very effective and powerful cleaning tool for oral hygiene.

Julez86 • 12/06/2019 - 22:50

Yes, getting the little ones to brush for long enough is a challenge. Though, I'm conflicted on whether using an app/phone is ideal, as kids do not need encouragement to use the phone/tablet more than they already do.

san712just • 12/06/2019 - 23:28

Absolutely loving the light that indicates too much pressure as I do need to improve my gum health. Also liking using the app for keeping track of my brushing. Hope to see good results from these changes.

Addoefc • 13/06/2019 - 08:07

Love how much fun this makes brushing your teeth. Definitely easier to get them looking after their teeth better.

cryky • 13/06/2019 - 11:02

I have been using it since day one I have received it and is an excellent product. Seeing your brushing on the app makes you more aware how your brushing is and what you can improve..especially the time. I love the product!

cryky • 13/06/2019 - 11:06

Setting your goals using the app and having a "coach" all the way is another bonus that comes with the brush. Also syncing the brush with app later on is a great feature. I definitely recommend.

Goodomens • 13/06/2019 - 12:04

Well, my daughter has gone from hating brushing her teeth to loving it. She'd attempt to brush in 30 seconds previously! But now she has fun with this brush and funzone app. I absolutely love the timer and the fact it vibrates so she knows to move to the next area, and I love it shows WHERE to brush! Very impressed with this product, and so is my daughter!

Sally • 18/06/2019 - 09:43

Dear savvy circler Goodomens, we're delighted to hear that she is having so muc fun with the Junior smart and that it is imporving her burshing habits.

crystal9 • 13/06/2019 - 20:58

I’m so pleased my son was chosen to do this exciting project, he was told by his dentist he should get a electric toothbrush so now he really enjoys brushing his teeth. This toothbrush is so clever in how it teaches children to brush their teeth

smart_pants • 13/06/2019 - 23:50

I was really really looking forward for my 4 kids to be involved in this project. i know how exciting this would have been for them.
I am literally begging them every morning and every night to brush their teeth.Now a days kids are glued to their tablets anyway.this way they get to use their tablets and clean their teeth better at the same time.
It's a win win for both parents and children.
Great idea Oral-B. 👍

littleforestowl • 14/06/2019 - 06:42

My son son often misses teeth and having an Oral B toothbrush like this would really help. He also really loves tech, so he would be really enthusiastic and look forward to brushing his teeth. My son is autistic and does very well with routine and visual instructions, so a toothbrush like this would be a great addition to the family.

Shellb159 • 14/06/2019 - 12:57

I'm testing the adult toothbrush but I know my daughter and son (soon to be 3) would also benefit from the additional brushing aids these toothbrushes provide. Ideally, it would be great if the whole family could use the same product, just putting on their own toothbrush head . It is rather cost prohibitive otherwise, especially when my daughter already uses the Frozen oral b electric toothbrush and I have the Star Wars one for my little boy once he is old enough to use it. Great that the wall chargers are suitable for all the toothbrushes though, saves having to have several plugged in.

Scousegemz • 14/06/2019 - 13:03

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

Slough90 • 14/06/2019 - 13:08

Although theres only an adult in our house using this, I can see how there is potential for it to benefits kids. I'm an official adult and I'm having so much fun with the app and brush. The funny faces and the phone knowing what teeth you're brushing is awesome. I'd definitely agree that it would encourage my step daughter to brush brush brush!!

crystal9 • 14/06/2019 - 16:58

my son was thrilled to have my package waiting for me when I got home on Wednesday. I unpacked it and put it on charge all day Thursday & he used it for the first time, with the app this morning. I am very impressed despite my initial wondering about whether the app would be too much of a faff and hassle first thing in the morning. It's really not. I'll talk about the app first & quite honestly it's very easy to use, he has a Android phone & it installed just fine and was very easy to set up with the brush. He had to do was turn on my bluetooth and location and switch the brush on, it found it within seconds and then He turned off the brush and it completed the pairing process. He popped it on the little stand that comes with it & I pulled up the timer and proceeded to brush his teeth. You can set the timer to how you like but I left it on the 2 minutes it was already on and his mouth felt lovely afterwards. In the settings there are different things you can set up to your own preference.

Quite honestly it's so easy to use you could easily take your phone in with you when you brush and use it every day as once it's set up and paired you can even set the app to recognise your brush by it's sound!!!

Candyma • 14/06/2019 - 22:16

My son in love with this toothbrush, fun zone is such a great app to keep him brush his tooth for a longer time, without using the app, he never brush his tooth for more than one minute.

I will buy the same toothbrush for my girl too, so that they can have fun together.

gemmaobrien • 15/06/2019 - 07:32

This toothbrush is great, my daughter is much better brushing her teeth and her teeth are cleaner too rather than using a manual toothbrush.

averagebeauty • 15/06/2019 - 09:13

My son is too young to use this particular toothbrush but he would be happy seeing his face with a funny filter, that would maybe distract him from thinking - how long yet I hsve to brush my teeth hehe :) other than that I think kids with asd would benefit from it. My son has Asd and he like to have a tongue massage with toothbrush. That helps him a lot with fussy eating and speech. (Not only tongue massage but inside cheeks etc as well)

VickiElleryJ • 16/06/2019 - 08:56

A great way to introduce younger people to the importance of dental health and best practice when brushing teeth

Paro • 16/06/2019 - 11:15

An excellent tooth brush for young children to encourage and motivate them to clean their teeth with fun. Oral- B Junior Smart with Gum Pressure make children to brush their teeth very thoroughly twice a day.

Joni007x • 16/06/2019 - 15:45

Summer loves using her app and seeing her face with the mask on, she also finds it useful when the app tells her to change area.. But I think she just enjoys earning points to get more backgrounds and masks

Sally • 18/06/2019 - 10:06

Dear savvy circler Joni007x, glad to hear that Summer is loving the app!

MrsMCC85 • 16/06/2019 - 22:46

My lo enjoys cleaning his teeth, but I do worry whether I'm doing a good enough job.

The junior smart sounds like it would take away that worry, definitely something that I am going to look into for him, especially if the brush is anywhere near as fantastic as the Genius X for adults.

Nukashu • 17/06/2019 - 08:16

My eldest just enjoying the morning routine of brushing with this app. I wish there was one version of the electric toothbrush for the

kays • 17/06/2019 - 11:26

my daughter loves this tooth brush as well as the app. She can now use her phone in the morning without getting into to trouble for being on her phone instead of getting ready for school. She keeps telling me all about the app and how cool it is. Result she actually likes brushing her teeth now.

holliecampbell • 17/06/2019 - 20:12

unfortunately we didn't get a childrens brush to test but we have put my sons softer childrens head on my brush and analysed his brushing and I can honestly say this is going to help him save his precious teeth. He is 8 years old and suffers with tooth decay already having one pulled out and another capped to protect it from further decay despite brushing his teeth twice a day! This brush has helped us both visualise which areas he is consistently brushing and we are able to compare improvement. Although he is not using the brush daily we can pop his head on regularly to maintain good brushing techniques so for that I am super grateful and feel lucky to have been part of the team!

MunchKim • 18/06/2019 - 09:40

I think I might have to redo my app settings and make myself the right age for those filters, they look fun! I've enjoyed testing the rose gold version out, and learned a lot about the right pressure and time for each section of teeth so I can see combining the two (fun and learning) would help children learn how to care for their mouth better.

ameliafletcher634 • 18/06/2019 - 19:19

Such a fun idea !!

Paro • 18/06/2019 - 20:52

My child has been using his new toothbrush Oral-B Junior Smart with gum pressure sensor like a Pro.A genius way to encourage young children to clean their teeth as a ritual and fun. My child said"the best toothbrush I've ever used in life". The Gum Pressure Sensor system make this toothbrush the most intelligent electric toothbrush by Oral-B till date as the future of brushing for young children.The whole new level of cleaning teeth.To train young children that oral hygiene is their first priority in life.

Sally • 24/06/2019 - 13:09

Dear savvy circler Paro, glad to see that it gets a thumbs-up in your household!

Paro • 18/06/2019 - 21:21

Oral-B Junior Smart with Gum Pressure Sensor is an excellent oral hygiene tool for young children because it does encourage them to brush their teeth twice. Just after, their first use , even young children can feel the difference as my child said,"my mouth and teeth can feel fresh and very clean". Oral- B Junior Smart produce the best result from the very first use. It has gum pressure sensor control system which is very important for young children gums, oral care and especially for young children's teeth life, enamel and density. Young children's fragile teeth and gums cannot bear too much pressure that ordinary brushes can cause during tooth brushing.Oral-B Junior Smart has designed by specialise dentists, following an advanced extensive study of brushing techniques to create this clever and special electric toothbrush for young children.

luckyangel • 18/06/2019 - 22:47

Yes my child definitely needs this as I’m so worried about taking them to the dentist and this would make such a difference to their habits in a fun way

Snowfairy8 • 19/06/2019 - 13:40

This looks so much Fun!!

Alvii • 19/06/2019 - 18:57

I don't actually have children myself, but I can imagine this app will help parents when it comes to the time to brush teeth. Children are definitely motivated when there is a fun element, which takes the idea that its a chore away. The addition of filters etc. seems to be really good.

Paro • 19/06/2019 - 21:13

Oral-B Junior Smart with Gum Pressure Sensor is an excellent product for young children's Oral hygiene from Oral-B. It's very easy to use this toothbrush but, it's very smart and clever in cleaning teeth. You can easily see the difference just after it's first use and can notice a huge improvement in children's teeth and in overall oral health. Teeth,gums and mouth feels more cleaner and fresher. Oral-B Junior Smart has a very small toothbrush head that make it very easy to reach to those hidden teeth and deep side corners of our mouth, where normally, other toothbrushes can't reach because of their thick structure.
