Oral-B Sense: What Is It & When Is It Available?

Oral-B Sense: What Is It & When Is It Available? 3

Oral-B has for many years been pushing the boundaries of electric toothbrushes, trying to make them better, smarter and ultimately more useful to you and me.

The iO is their best effort yet — it makes use of sensors built into the brush handle and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to track your tooth brushing and educate you on ways in which you could improve your technique and general dental health based on the data it obtains.

I don’t think their current approach is all that bad, I really like it. But, this hasn’t stopped them from working on a slightly different approach, which I think many users will find more practical in day to day use than the current setup of smart toothbrushes.

With statistics suggesting 23% of adults only brush their teeth once a day, despite the NHS recommendations being 2 times, something needs to be done to encourage better brushing habits.

Enter then Oral-B Sense.
