Oral-B Genius 9000 Electric Toothbrush
If you have constantly lamented about the lack of technological advancement in sonic toothbrushes in the past decade or so, then 2016 promises to change it for you. There has been a flurry of development in dental tech and some of it, can change the way you look at oral hygiene.
At the forefront, is Oral-B’s new offering, the Genius 9000, an electronic toothbrush with Position Detection Technology. If you thought that buzzing to let you know when to switch quadrants was pretty slick, then wait till you see what this one can do. The Genius 9000 comes with motion tracking and it literally, takes a peek into your mouth.
Oh yes, you heard that right. It is one of the most advanced sonic toothbrush ever created and it’s just as good as having a dentist at home to guide you while you brush. No more lazy maneuvers.
Unravelling the genius
Included in the package are a stylish travel case that can also be used as a smartphone charger, a suction cup based smartphone holder which is a very important accessory in the use of this toothbrush and four brush heads (floss action, 3d white, cross action and sensitive.)
The genius 9000, is largely based on the extremely robust and popular SmartSeries technology from Oral-B.
So, if you have used the SmartSeries, then you’d be familiar with the six brushing modes: daily clean, deep clean, massage mode, whitening mode, tongue cleaner, and sensitive that have been retained in the 9000 along with a host of other new features.
Brushing with the Oral-b Genius 9000
In what has been a benchmark of sorts in promotion, the Oral-B Genius 9000 was launched with much élan at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. And the feature that has been at the centre of all the hype, is the ‘motion tracking’ assisted brushing.
Motion tracking: Oral-B’s new video recognition algorithm allows you to connect to the toothbrush’s app using your smartphone. Once connected, you can use the suction-cup mount to stick the smartphone on your bathroom mirror.
The algorithm then uses the smartphone’s camera, to create a virtual map of the brusher’s teeth, that is displayed on the screen. The teeth are divided into 6 zones and the position detection technology tells you which zone is cleaned correctly and which one needs to be worked on longer.
The zone color changes to white when the zone is completely cleaned. The idea is to encouragee the user, to brush for the dentist recommended two minute time duration and promote correct brushing technique. You are also offered rewards for brushing correctly.
Oscillating-Rotating-Pulsating: The dentist recommended proprietary technology ensures that every tooth is cleaned completely, reaching areas that are impossible to reach with other toothbrushes or manually.
Triple Sensor: An in-built pressure sensor on the handle of the genius 9000 glows, if you are accidentally applying too much pressure on the gums. As part of an effort to create a customized user experience, the app also allows you to change the color of the sensor alert light, which is called the Smartring by Oral-B. You can choose from 12 different colors. Once the Genius detects that you are exerting unwanted pressure, it automatically reduces the pulsations and the speed, unless you reduce pressure.
Timer: Even if you do not wish to use the motion tracking and the Bluetooth connectivity to connect with the App, the Genius 9000 has an in-built timer that automatically buzzes to ensure that you are brushing each quadrant for 30 seconds.
Battery Life: The Genius 9000 is powered by a long lasting Lithium Ion Battery that lasts for at least 12 days on full charge.
Is it worth the price?
The big question, is the price justified?
- It cleans better: Thanks to the proprietarily designed brush heads and the 3D technology, the genius 9000 is able to remove 100% more plaque and bacteria as compared to manual toothbrush. So, if you are still relying on the old manual toothbrush, but are on the fence about buying an electronic one, this is the best one to get started with.
- Its Personalized: It does not use a cookie-cutter approach towards oral care. When connected with the app, the built-in motion detection is the most advanced technology in oral care. It offers a personalized picture of what’s wrong with your brushing technique and makes suggestions to help correct it.
- It will reduce your dentist visits: By ensuring that every quadrant of the teeth is cleaned uniformly, it helps reduce plaque and inflammation and may contribute towards reducing your dentist visits.
- Portable and Functional: With the beautiful travel case and the smartphone holder, it becomes a portable and functional companion that guides you towards your best oral health.
The Oral-B Genius 9000 is a game changer. It is completely worth the hype and worth every penny that you spend on it. It will significantly improve your oral health and will ensure that your brush right, every single time.==> Check for latest price and more reviews <==
