It’s no secret that artificial intelligence (AI) is working its way into every industry day-by-day. Oral health is no different. Recently Oral-B introduced an electric toothbrush that uses AI to track how people brush their teeth and offers personalized tips on oral hygiene.
The toothbrush’s programming features thousands of brushing patterns to recognize each user’s style in real time. Oral-B aims to encourage people to participate in at-home health monitoring as a part of their daily oral care routine, arming them with real-time feedback to enable diagnosis and prevention.
How Does It Work?
- The Oral-B GENIUS X with AI helps you brush for the right amount of time, with the right amount of pressure, regardless of your individual brushing style.
- The AI technology tracks where people are brushing in their mouth and offers personalized feedback on the areas that require additional attention, for better oral health via the Oral-B app.
- It also features a new sleek, modern travel case that charges both the brush and a USB device, such as a smartphone, to make traveling with your electric toothbrush easier than ever.
AI is Officially Everywhere
Oral-B implemented the technology through the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT, or the billions of connected smart devices that make up our everyday lives, is enhancing the way humans function. These connected “things” collect data via sensors, and can be used to generate innovative solutions to problems.
“Every patient is unique, that is why we are looking for solutions that adapt to the individual. Oral-B gives patients an excellent and personalized brushing experience, without having to change the way they brush to achieve their best oral health result. This makes it a real breakthrough,” Prof. Dr. Ralf Rössler from the University for Digital Technologies in Dentistry & Medicine
GENIUS X with AI is another step towards the future, where intelligent devices use data analytics and turn a simple device into an important element in people’s everyday health routines.
