As Artificial Intelligence makes its way into almost every facet of life, it makes sense that our oral health routine gets a smart upgrade too. Oral-B® is pleased to announce its latest technological innovation: Oral-B iO™ 10 with iOSense™.

The new iO10 with iOSense, the latest addition to the iO range, is set to revolutionise the way we brush our teeth with a personalised experience like never before. It is accompanied by a smart device called iOSense, which offers real-time guidance with the aid of AI and a personalized brushing experience that ensures healthier gums and teeth.

It guides you when to brush: the iOSense has a timer for optimal brushing time and a Wi-Fi clock.  It also tells you where to brush: the intuitive iOSense lights mean you’ll never miss a spot.  And last, but not least, it tells you how to brush: the Oral-B® App tracks your goals and provides personalizes feedback after every brushing.

Oral-B® iO’s revolutionary micro-vibration technology removes 100% more plaque than a manual brush to give you that professional clean feeling, at home, improving your oral health and contributing to better overall body health​. However, it’s not only about what the iO can do, it’s also about how it makes you feel. Using iO10 is a truly sensorial experience that will transform the act of brushing into something you have to do into something you want to do. 

The Oral-B® iO 10 Design comes in two new galactic-inspired brush designs, cosmic black and stardust white.

New iO Specialised Clean Head

In addition, Oral-B has launched a new replacement head to fit their iO range of electric toothbrushes called Specialised Clean.  It features tufted bristles for cleaning around implants and interdental spaces.  The company asked periodontist, Dr Amit Patel, to try the new head in advance of launch and he found it helped patients access and clean hard to reach areas. Furthermore, he felt “it helped patients improve their oral hygiene around their implants, too”. 

He selected ten implant patients to test-drive the head. Those who were shown evidence of bleeding on probing and inflammation of the peri-implant tissues were then given the Specialised Clean Oral-B iO toothbrush for a period of three months and re-evaluated both clinically and with an open-ended questionnaire to assess improvement (or otherwise).

When re-evaluating the patients after three months, the feedback was positive, and the patients reported that their teeth ‘had never felt cleaner’ and that their gums had felt better with no associated bleeding. 

Dr Patel was encouraged that some patients suggested it was far easier to use the Specialised Clean head in the posterior region interproximally than interdental brushes, especially if they had larger spaces.

Clinically, all patients showed a significant improvement in bleeding on probing around their implants due to the reduction in plaque in these sites.

He concluded that, “On-going periodontal therapy is well supported by patients using the Oral B iO and the Specialised Clean head has a role in the maintenance of their implants”.  If you would like a sample of the new brush head please contact your local Oral-B Territory Manager for more information or call 0870-2421850 or email customerservice@dentalcare.co.uk.
