The brush is designed to pair with an app that can be downloaded on any smart phone or device. The “smart brush” monitors your tooth brushing technique and provides feedback directly to your smart phone to help coach you to brush in a gentle and effective way using recommendations that can be programmed in by your dentist or hygienist at your dental visit. Sensors in the brush can determine if you are exerting too much pressure and provide visual feedback during brushing. The app can help develop optimal brushing technique by motivating you with helpful reminders, recommendations and rewards. It can also track your performance so you and your dental professional can monitor your oral care progress.
The Oral-B PRO 5000 with Bluetooth technology is worth a look for those who want to take their tooth brushing to the next level.
