I’m excited about today’s post, as it’s all about dental health, something I’ve been particularly focused on in recent years! As a longtime fan and user of Oral-B products, I was thrilled when I got to try the new iO electric toothbrush.
Everyone in my family has converted to electric toothbrushes and now I see why! I’m also excited to finally be joining the club. The Oral-B iO is being celebrated as the brand’s biggest innovation because of its ability to give you the feeling of a professional cleaning at home.
That feeling is no longer just reserved for your twice-yearly dental appointment! The Oral-B team spent six years developing this electric toothbrush and consulted with dental professionals to guarantee people are getting a great cleaning at home.
The iO is being touted as the industry’s most advanced brushing product, and it’s easy to see why. Because this was my first foray into the electric toothbrush world, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning unboxing my new toothbrush! It was also made more magical by the fact that this is the most luxurious dental hygiene accessory I’ve ever owned! Let’s talk about some of my favorite features that really make the Oral-B iO stand out from the
- The display greets you when you turn the toothbrush on and you can choose from a variety of brushing modes.
- You can personalize the toothbrush with different color options that light up when you’re brushing. I unsurprisingly went with pink!
- There is a Bimodal Smart Pressure Sensor that provides positive brushing feedback, identifying and guiding users to brush in the optimal pressure range. This feature really blew my mind!
- Artificial Intelligence Tracking and the Oral-B iO App provide real-time individual tracking and feedback, thanks to an AI platform inspired by thousands of recorded brushing sessions. Consumers are guided through a two-minute brushing session enabled with AI recognition and 3D teeth tracking to ensure a professional clean feeling.
- There’s a visual timer on the toothbrush that tracks each session, so you’ll know when you’ve brushed for the recommended two minutes. A smiley face icon appears once you’ve hit the goal!
Another feature I really appreciated is the magnetic charger. It’s sleek, minimal, and gives you a full charge in just three hours. Now that I’ve converted to an electric toothbrush one of my biggest concerns was being able to travel with it. The iO comes with a travel case, and because the charger is so lightweight and compact I can easily bring everything with me when I travel. No excuses!
I had the chance to chat with Michele and Tami from West Chester Family Dentistry about their advice to stay on top of your dental health game. They said they like to promote the basics at their practice. This includes brushing twice daily for two minutes and using an electric toothbrush like the Oral-B iO because the built-in pressure sensor ensures you’re using just the right amount of pressure. They also encourage patients to use a fluoride toothpaste and say flossing daily is ideal. And last but not least, a routine dental exam twice a year to make sure everything is looking good!
Oral-B is taking part in a force for good initiative, and they’re partnering with dental professionals across the country to find patients who need the iO toothbrush most during these times. Over 200 deserving Americans are receiving the new Oral-B iO so they can stay on top of their dental hygiene. Tami of West Chester Family Dentistry selected some of her patients
whose lives have been turned upside down by COVID-19 and have struggled because of it. To be able to gift patients with a tool that can help maintain their health is extra special during a time where a lot of people are struggling.
I never thought I’d be someone who enjoys brushing their teeth, and more so someone that looks forward to brushing their teeth! The Oral-B iO has truly converted me and you can feel the results the moment you experience it.
