Oral-B's Genius X Connected Toothbrush Teaches Better Brushing

by Anna Bell on January 07, 2019

The Oral-B GENIUS X isn't just a toothbrush — it's a toothbrush that contains advanced AI to help you polish your brushing skills while you polish your teeth. This smart toothbrush has sensors to track where you're brushing and how much pressure you're using. The AI analyzes this data to give you personalized advice to improve your oral health and brushing technique. For instance, if you press too hard with your GENIUS-X, the Oral-B app will tell you that extra pressure can damage your gums. If you aren't spending enough time scrubbing your molars, the app will tell you to spend a little more time on them. Every time you brush, the AI gives you a lesson on how to take better care of your teeth.

Other smart toothbrushes on the market can sense common brushing mistakes, like using too much pressure or holding the brush at an incorrect angle. However, many current products have their own idea of how you should brush, telling you exactly where to start and stop. But maybe you always start with your molars, or maybe you like to change it up. The AI in the GENIUS-X can roll with that, offering advice builds on how you already brush naturally. It uses the app to show you a visual of your mouth, making it easy to see that you missed one incisor a bit, and prompts you to pay that area special attention.

Oral-B says that when their GENIUS X testing, most people — who typically brush for just 30 to 60 seconds — started brushing even longer than the dentist recommendation of two minutes, making this a great choice for improving oral health. Any timer can help extend your brush time, but the app’s mouth visualization makes you want to brush for those extra few seconds to make sure every part of your mouth is clean. This smart toothbrush is also compatible with other Oral-B apps, like the Disney Magic Timer app, so you can use it to make kids’ time brushing more fun.  

The toothbrush comes in several colors, including white, black, purple and the trendy rose gold. Anthracite Gray, which will only be available on Amazon, is a particularly stylish choice. The unique case allows you to charge the toothbrush, and it has an additional USB port you can use to charge your phone, making it perfect for those hotel rooms with not enough outlets to go around.

Look for the GENIUS X at major retailers this September.
