The yearly cycle of tech upgrades isn’t exclusive to mobile phones and TVs, Oral-B updates it toothbrushes on a yearly cycle too.

At MWC 2022, they have announced the new flagship Oral-B iO Series 10.

The big improvement this year is what Oral-B is calling iOSense, a new virtual brushing coach that will deliver real-time brushing help as well as feedback.

This change includes changing the design of the charging base, which incorporates many of the coaching features into it, meaning you don’t have to rely on an app when you brush your teeth.

The new base now has a digital display and light bar display which will show you the brushing countdown, pressure sensor information and which part of your mouth you should be focusing on.

The pressure sensor has also been improved to give you a more accurate idea if you are brushing too lightly, just right or too hard.

The new toothbrush also comes with a Power2Go charging travel case something that wasn’t on some of the previous generations, but competing brands did offer.

Oral B has also provided some stats from a 6-month clinical study they carried out:

  • 96% of patients using Oral-B® iO moved from non-healthy to healthy gums meaning the longer you use iO, the better off you are.
  • By using Oral-B® iO, users have 14.5x higher odds of moving from non-healthy gums to healthy gums compared to a regular manual toothbrush.
  • Oral-B® iO removes 62% more plaque than Sonicare DiamondClean SMART along the gumline and 26% more plaque in hard-to-reach areas.

Considering how much dental treatment costs, the improved teeth hygiene from using Oral B seems to justify the price of the toothbrushes.

Currently, there is no word on price or availability. As always, with these things, at launch, it will have a high price which will quickly drop during the holiday periods.
