What do I need to connect my Oral-B Toothbrush to Bluetooth?

Well, now you might be wondering what are the main things that you exactly need in order to connect your toothbrush to Bluetooth.

And this is a reasonable thing to ask- because most of the time people are either lacking a proper electric toothbrush model or a proper smartphone. So, here’s what you need. Quoting Oral-B,

  • An Oral-B SmartSeries or Genius electric toothbrush. Many of our Oral-B PRO electric toothbrushes also include the term ‘SmartSeries’ in their name, and this means they’re able to connect to our Oral-B App. All of our Oral-B Genius toothbrushes can connect to the Oral-B App.
  • A compatible smartphone. The Oral-B App can be used with Android OS 4.4 or higher and iOS 9.0 or higher. Android OS 7.1 and above and iOS 10.0 and above are recommended for best results. The Oral-B App is not yet running on any other platforms (including Windows)
  • The Oral-B App…The latest version is 6.0.1 for Android and 6.0.2 for iOS, and it’s important to keep it updated! (Most smartphones will update it automatically when a new version is available.)

As is clear from this post, all you need is a proper Electric Toothbrush that can connect to Bluetooth and a proper smartphone that supports this system and the Oral-B application.

The main models that you might be looking at if you want a Bluetooth Connection are:

Are Electric Toothbrushes really better?

One of the most frequently asked questions is if Electric Toothbrushes are really as good as quite a few dentists and users paint them out to be.

Well, you’d be glad to know that they indeed are much better than regular toothbrushes in several aspects.

As such, if you have still not made shift to an electric toothbrush, you really should consider doing so soon enough!

Braces and Electric Toothbrushes: Do they go well together?

For quite a few of my friends, one of the main concerns was that an Electric Toothbrush wouldn’t be a good choice because of the fact that they had braces.

Well, I did my research on this, and as it turns out, there is no problem in using an electric toothbrush even if you have braces!
