Since there are many different toothbrush models on the market, we want to help you and ease your decision. Read the full review and find out why these Oral-B toothbrushes are your best companion in everyday life.
Cleaning mode features can vary from model to model but depending on your habits and oral hygiene it is important to know how many modes your favorite toothbrush offers. Depending on the number of cleaning modes, the price will also be higher or lower.
6 cleaning modes are included within the following toothbrush models:
Oral-B Genius X and Oral-B Genius Pro:
- Pro Clean
- Tongue Clean
- Gum Care
3 cleaning modes are included within Oral-B Pro 3000 3D White Electric Toothbrush:
- Daily Clean
2 cleaning modes are included within Oral-B Smart 1500 Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush:
- Daily Clean
1 cleaning mode is included within Oral-B 1000 CrossAction Electric:
- Daily Clean
For better understanding, we will explain in simple terms every cleaning mode.
Daily Clean mode is a basic cleaning mode. You can use this mode at any time during the day.
Gum Care mode should be used if you are having gum inflammation, bleeding, or if your gums are more sensitive. This mode allows you to gently massage your gums while cleaning them.
The Sensitive mode is like the Gum Care mode. It allows you to use your toothbrush at a lower speed and pressure. The difference is that this mode is recommended for both tooth and gum cleaning.
Whitening mode should be used occasionally. You can also combine it with Daily Clean mode to get a shiny look and polish your teeth.
Pro Clean mode is automatically set to last a little bit longer than Daily Clean mode. It lasts for 3 minutes instead of 2 minutes and it will give you that professional care and cleaning feeling with extended freshness.
Tongue Clean mode is a perfect feature for those who want to keep their oral hygiene to a high level. If you have a strong reflex while cleaning your tongue, this feature will help you to gently clean your tongue with less pressure.
Electric toothbrush differs in several ways from a manual toothbrush. One of the most important differences is the amount of time needed to effectively clean our teeth and gums. Dentists recommend that the best time for cleaning is up to 2 minutes, 2 times a day. That is why it is important to follow these instructions. To ease down this process, most of the electric toothbrushes are manufactured with a built-in timer and quadpacer.
Every Oral-B toothbrush model in this review has both a timer and a quadpacer feature. The timer will alarm you after 2 minutes have passed, and the quadpacer will alert you every 30 seconds to change the brushing side of your mouth and teeth. You can also extend brushing time because the toothbrush will not automatically turn off. With quadpacer, you will be assured that your teeth are clean from every side – front, back, up, and low.
The Pressure sensor feature is built-in in every Oral-B toothbrush. This feature alarms you if you are brushing too hard. It can not be turned off because it is an especially important feature. ON the other hand, if you are having difficulties with reaching some less accessible areas of your mouth, it is recommended to find a brush with angled interdental brush tips. Look at how the pressure sensor is manufactured within these Oral-B toothbrush models:
- Oral-B Genius X illuminating sensor
- Oral-B Genius Pro Rechargeable Toothbrush illuminating sensor
- Oral-B 1000 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush has a pulsating pressure sensor
- Oral-B Smart 1500 Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush 360-degrees illuminating sensor
- Oral-B Pro 3000 3D White Electric Toothbrush illuminating pressure sensor
When it comes to package and items you will receive when buying your Oral-B toothbrush, here is the list for each model:
Oral-B Genius X Limited Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush comes with a brush handle, 2 additional brush heads, and a charging travel case. Because this model is Midnight Black, every item is in black color.
Oral-B Genius Pro Rechargeable Toothbrush comes with brush handle, 4 brush heads, travel case, charger, and smartphone holder.
Oral-B 1000 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush, Black comes with a brush handle, 1 CrossAction brush head, and a charger.
Oral-B Smart 1500 Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush comes with a brush handle, brush head, charger, and a refill stand.
Oral-B Pro 3000 3D White Electric Toothbrush (Rechargeable) comes with a brush handle and brush head, charger, and refill stand.
Keep in mind that the package may vary depending on the retailer you are buying from.
If you are looking for a luxe design Oral-B Genius X has the most modern design. The whole set is in black with deep blue color details for a pressure sensor, AI features, Led light ring, Bluetooth connectivity, and timer.
The classic design is reserved for Oral-B Genius Pro Rechargeable Toothbrush. The white design will fit into every household and a few small blue details are there to add variety to the design. Oral-B Smart 1500 Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush is quite similar to the Pro Rechargeable Toothbrush. The only bigger difference in design is the orange pressure sensor visible when pressure is too high.
If you are looking for a mixed design, something between classics and contemporary, Oral-B 1000 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush, Black is the best choice. The front of the toothbrush handle is black, while the back is white. The original toothbrush head is white with a vibration pressure sensor.
Oral-B Pro 3000 3D White Electric Toothbrush has a very suitable design and is amazingly comfortable to use, even when wet. It is because of the several lines imprinted into the toothbrush holder preventing it from slipping. The pressure sensor is on the toothbrush handle, from each side. It will alarm with red color so you can see it from every angle.
AI technology is a new feature when it comes to electric toothbrushes. Oral-B introduced it in 2019 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. AI technology has intuitive software that can create and upgrade the memory to help you maintain your oral hygiene at a high level.
Oral-B Genius X Limited Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush, Midnight Black comes with Bluetooth connectivity and AI technology. With a Bluetooth feature, it is easy to connect it with your smart mobile phone and it will give you real-time feedback about your cleaning habits. Do you remember how we said that brushing time is important as well as a reminder to change the brushing side every 30 seconds? AI technology will help you with that.
In the beginning, this feature will start collecting the way you brush your teeth, how long you are retaining on one side, how much pressure you are using, and a few more things.
Oral-B Genius Pro Rechargeable Toothbrush also offers a Bluetooth and AI technology feature. The only difference is that for this model you will get a mobile stand to place your mobile phone so it can collect information about your brushing experience.
You can imagine this feature as a brushing coach that will teach you how to brush your teeth and gums to get the best results.
How does it work?
The AI technology and machine learning technology within an electric toothbrush is easiest to imagine like a huge online translator service that gathers previous translations and based on that experience gives you the final information.
The AI technology in Genius X toothbrush works by watching your moves while brushing. There is a reason you do not need a mobile holder for this model because the app will gather your brushing moves displayed in the brushing handle via Bluetooth. Some earlier technological attempts demanded a mobile camera pointed at you during the brushing process.
The lithium-ion battery is built into each of these Oral-B toothbrush models. The main difference is the battery durability.
2+ weeks battery durability comes with Oral-B Pro 3000 3D White Electric Toothbrush and Oral-B Smart 1500 Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush.
2 weeks battery durability is included with Oral-B Genius Pro Rechargeable Toothbrush and Oral-B Genius X Limited Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush, Midnight Black.
1-week battery durability comes with Oral-B 1000 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush, Black.
Note: the battery life refers to the duration after the full charge.
Depending on the features you like or want to explore, in this review you can find a lot of variety: from different toothbrush features, classical or modern design. If you are more into technology features and gadgets, you will love Oral-B Smart 1500 Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush and Oral-B Genius X Limited Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush, Midnight Black. If you are just into basic, yet advanced Oral-B features, like 3D brushing or CrossAction brush tips, your choice will definitely be Oral-B Pro 3000 3D White Electric Toothbrush or Oral-B 1000 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush, Black.
