Oral-B Genius: Brush Like Your Dentist Recommends

While at Mobile World Congress, I caught a demo of the new Oral-B Genius, the world’s first toothbrush that “sees what you don’t”. Using a combination of Oral-B’s Position Detection Technology with Triple Pressure Control and a professional timer, the Genius helps you brush like your dentist recommends. Take a look …

You might think that you are brushing your teeth correctly, but chances are that you aren’t doing it for long enough, you’re brushing too hard, or you are missing zones in your mouth. The Oral-B Genius coaches you so that you are more aware of how you brush, and by using it your brushing habits can only improve.

The new Oral-B GENIUS features groundbreaking Position Detection Technology that combines cutting-edge motion sensor technology located in the brush, and video recognition using the smartphone’s camera, to track areas being brushed so that no zone is missed. Users receive instant feedback on the brushing of each zone of the mouth via the Oral-B App 4.1, including guidance on pressure applied and brushing duration. These features combined with the Oral-B Oscillating-Rotating-Pulsating Technology and the unique round brush head helps users improve their oral health.

Whether you’re worried about tooth decay, tooth loss, pressing too hard while brushing (I’ve been guilty of this), or not brushing for the right amount of time in each zone, the Genius in conjunction with the Oral-B App 4.1 can help.

This real-time feedback reduces guesswork, enabling users to brush for the dental professional-recommended two minutes, not apply too much pressure while brushing and – thanks to the new revolutionary Position Detection – never miss those commonly missed zones.

It’s About Brushing for the Right Length, Not Pressing Too Hard, and Never Missing a Zone
