Oral-B Genius 8000 Electric Toothbrush Review
The latest model from Oral-B, the Genius 8000, features a number of high-tech aids delivered to your smartphone thanks to Bluetooth technology. Position Detection Technology uses motion sensors in the brush as well as video recognition in your smartphone's camera to track areas being brushed. Pretty wild!
Not only does it look like something out of Star Trek, the Oral-B app connects your smartphone to your futuristic brush to show you info about your brushing (if that's your thing). Pressure Sensor Technology lets you know if you're applying too much pressure, which can damage your gums. This is a helpful feature, because gum damage due to overzealous flossing or brushing can be a real issue for your mouth. The app also has a timer. And just for fun: you can customize the color of the SmartRing lighting system by choosing from 12 different colors.
The round oscillating brush head is excellent at breaking up plaque and massaging gums, and the brush features a whopping 6 cleaning modes: daily clean, gum care, sensitive, whitening, tongue cleaning, and pro-clean mode. It uses a Lithium Ion battery and includes a smart travel case that can also charge your smartphone! This brush can seriously do it all. You can go up to 12 days between charges. The set includes the handle, charger, 3 brush heads, refill stand, travel case, and smartphone holder. The Genius 8000 is not cheap, but this toothbrush has all the bells and whistles to justify the price.
