There’s nothing wrong with a good, old-fashioned manual toothbrush, and – if used properly – you should get as thorough a cleaning. But if you’re really interested in getting the best and most luxurious teeth cleaning experience, you really ought to upgrade to an electric toothbrush. Our pick is the Oral-B Genius Pro 8000.
The Pro 8000 comes packed with features; it’s actually features Bluetooth connectivity, which allows it to pair with your smartphone, and use Position Detection. Position Detection uses Facial Recognition, which actually tracks and detects where you’ve brushed, and where you haven’t. It then updates you and actually shows you – on your phone – where you’ve missed, so you can go back for a complete cleaning and never miss a spot.
The round brush head has a slight, 16-degree cleaning angle, which allows for a deeper cleaning, while the Triple Pressure Sensor ensures that there is never too much pressure applied to the gums, preventing any damage from overbrushing. The Focused Care feature lets you implement your dentist’s recommendations right into the toothbrush with customizable brushing plans to target particular areas. Dental Care Journeys mode follows a pre-programmed routine that can target these special areas; some settings include Fresh Breath, Plaque Fighter, Whitening, Gum Health and Ortho Care. The 360º SmartRing lets you to see feedback from the pressure sensor, brushing timer and Bluetooth connection. And to complete the hi-tech package, Oral-B includes a smart travel case, that can charge both your toothbrush and phone using only one outlet; the battery will last up to 12 days on a single charge.
So if you’re on the fence, go ahead, make that upgrade. Your teeth may thank you.
