AI Toothbrush

Oral-B has made a dent in the future of dental technology with its latest toothbrush, the Oral-B Genius X is shaping up to be the most advanced electric toothbrush to date, with powerful deep cleaning motors combined with AI-learning behaviors. The AI infused toothbrush analyses thousands of brushing patterns and crunches the numbers to let you know where you could be more efficient while brushing.

Oral-B claims that through its app which receives the data from your toothbrush, can coach you on your individual personalized brushing techniques which according to Oral-B are as unique as a fingerprint.

The state-of-the-art toothbrush uses a combination of gyroscopes and accelerometer that decompose and analyze the brushing patterns and motions generated while brushing to understand and comprehend how people brush. The oral hygiene company put thousands of people in front of a lens and asked them to brush and that data was crunched and placed into an in-house algorithm that refines the model.

The Genius X brush is a great tool to help perfect your brushing technique. I often see patients who I can tell aren’t brushing correctly and I spend time with them teaching the correct technique to ensure they are looking after their teeth and gums properly at home. The Genius X also includes a tongue brushing mode to help improve overall oral health. Often we find most odour-causing bacteria on the tongue and therefore vitally important to keep the tongue clean too.
