Are Oral-B iO toothbrushes worth it?

Innovation in oral care technology has transformed our daily brushing routines. Here at well:o we’re huge fans of the Oral-B iO electric toothbrush: it’s the one we recommend to all our patients. We know it’s a bit of an investment, but we couldn’t think of many things more important to spend your money on. (Also: we’ve noticed they’re often on promotion!)

Let’s take a look at the Oral-B iO toothbrush and the ground-breaking features that make it the smartest of smart toothbrushes:

Gentle Yet Effective: One of the iO’s stand-out features is the pressure sensors. These sensors alert you — using a blue, green or red light – if you’re pressing too hard while brushing. This helps prevent potential damage to your teeth and gums caused by aggressive brushing.

A Suite of Intelligent Features: Beyond sensors, the Oral-B iO offers personalised brushing modes and live feedback, mimicking the guidance of a dental professional. For example, it will help you identify areas you’ve missed while brushing. These features elevate your daily routine, ensuring a more tailored and effective brushing experience.

A Good Head: The Oral-B iO’s head is the right size (nice and small) and its filaments are angled, for precision-brushing.

Fully Charged: Best of all, the iO lasts two weeks when fully charged, so there’s no excuse to not take your electric toothbrush on holiday!

As technological advancements continue to shape our lives, smart electric toothbrushes like the Oral-B iO lead the charge in revolutionising oral care. In your first well:o hygiene appointment, you’ll be shown how to use the brush properly.
