So, where do we start with the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush?

- Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush
- Braun recharger

- Four toothbrush heads

You will very quickly find that this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the functionality and practicality of the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush. This is an electric toothbrush which has approaching 10,000 customer ratings with more than 80% giving it a five star rating. In many ways this says everything about our review, but we will now take a look at what it really has to offer under the surface.
You can have the fancy boxes, nice colours and eye-catching descriptions, but we all need an electric toothbrush which cleans plaque off our teeth. Well, the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush has been demonstrated to remove up to twice as much plaque from your teeth compared to a manual toothbrush. When looking at the plaque cleaning ability of the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush we also need to appreciate hygiene, dental health and perhaps as importantly, the health of your gums.
If you have recently switched from a manual toothbrush to an electric toothbrush, you will probably still have the inclination to exert significant pressure on your teeth while brushing. An electric toothbrush will revolve at up to 8800 rotations a minute compared to around 300 movements with a manual toothbrush. So, it is not difficult to see the huge difference in the movement of the toothbrush head. So how do you know if you are exerting the right pressure?
As a means of protecting your gums as much as your teeth, the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush has a gum/teeth pressure sensor which will alert you when you are exerting too much pressure. Reading this, you may think this is irrelevant. Surely you know when you are exerting too much pressure, because you will feel pain? Yes, you will feel some discomfort but the sensor will react much quicker than your brain. It will be able to recognise a buildup of pressure which is excessive and alert you accordingly. In a second, you can reduce the pressure and go back to a more sedate and correct use of your electric toothbrush.
Before going further, it is sensible to make you aware of the Bluetooth technology which is associated with the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush. Yes, you can download a simple app to your mobile phone and hey presto, you have a full track record of your brushing habits, the option to review various actions and even an online coach to help you improve!
When using a manual toothbrush, many of us will attempt to reach the recesses of our mouths with limited success. When you bear in mind the size and the shape of a traditional manual toothbrush, it is not difficult to see how you will never reach these difficult areas. Due to the way in which the brush heads of the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush rotate, this doesn’t need a big head. Therefore, you can take advantage of the relatively thin shaft, large gripping area and reach everywhere. Yes, you should now be able to reach every one of your teeth and say goodbye to plaque!
Tracking your brushing style
The Bluetooth functionality of the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush is absolutely brilliant as this review will show. Once you have finished brushing your teeth, you will be able to look at your success rate. You will be able to see which areas need more attention and which areas where you are perhaps over brushing. The position detection technology is fantastic. Once you have used this electric toothbrush you will assume that all electric toothbrushes offer this. They don’t!
In effect you will be presented with what looks like a heat map of your teeth. This will highlight areas where you have had limited brushing success. There is no excuse for not being able to reach those for fetched areas of your mouth. There is no reason why any of your teeth surfaces should go uncleaned. We can only imagine the huge buildup of plaque from years gone by. Very soon this will be a distant memory.
Six brushing modes
Who’d have thought it, six brushing modes for a simple two-minute brushing of your teeth? Yes, two minutes is probably the minimum amount of time you should spend brushing your teeth. There are six different brushing modes ranging from relatively light brushing through to teeth whitening and even brushing your tongue. While many people are unaware, it is very important that you brush your tongue on a regular basis to avoid the buildup of potentially harmful excess food and acidic saliva which can damage your teeth enamel.
Recharging your Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush
Those who have yet to sample the delights of an electric toothbrush often have a misunderstanding of the recharging process. With the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush it takes a maximum two hours to recharge fully. This charge will be enough to last 14 days with the average two minute plus brushing time. Obviously, the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush comes with a very safe and secure charging base. Simply place your electric toothbrush in the holder, switch on the charger and leave it.
This is perfect for those occasions where you are perhaps away from the office on business or on holiday. It is also worth noting that the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush comes with a travel holder. It is the little thoughtful things which make an electric toothbrush just that little bit more special that little bit more useful.
Replacement brush heads
Along the lines of little thoughtful elements of your electric toothbrush package, the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush will alert you when the toothbrush head needs replaced. You will also find that unlike some packages, the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush is compatible with a range of Oral-B toothbrush heads. There is no specific replacement toothbrush head for this particular model, which allows some companies to charge a premium, thereby keeping long-term maintenance down to a minimal cost.
Dental hygiene and dental health
It is very easy to get caught up in the mystery and the beauty of an electric toothbrush. The idea that the heads are revolving up to 20 times that achievable with a manual toothbrush. All sounds good, but what does this mean to your dental hygiene and dental health. Well, as we touched on above, research shows that the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush will remove up to twice as much plaque as that achievable through manual brushing. You also have the heat map system which shows you areas of your teeth which need particular attention. As the toothbrush head of the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush is relatively small, you can get into those places which are not always reachable with a manual toothbrush.
The function which alerts you to the need to replace your toothbrush head may seem like a gimmick. It isn’t. How many of us have left it literally years too late to replace our manual toothbrushes? We have literally ground them down to nothing, to a point where they have minimal impact. Well, this technologically advanced electric toothbrush will tell you when the toothbrush head needs replaced.
Practical and excellent value for money
Compared to a manual toothbrush, a technologically advanced electric toothbrush package such as the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush might look expensive. Take a step back. Imagine the potential improvements in your dental hygiene and dental health. This has the potential to translate into huge dental care savings in the short, medium and longer term. When you bear in mind the cost of a filling, let alone a relatively large extraction, the potential cost savings are huge. It is fair to say you can’t put a price on your health. What we can do with the Oral-B Genius 9900 Electric Toothbrush is highlight the potential cost savings and huge benefits.
