Best Oral-B Brush For 2022

Best Oral-B Brush For 2022 - Your Choice Way

Want to know which Oral-B electric toothbrush is right for you? We've rounded up and rated the best Oral-B brushes for every budget.

You're looking at Oral-B brushes but which one should you buy? With so many lines, models and versions of each model, it's hard to know what you're getting, and which brush would be best for you. 

Different brushes have different features - and flaws. To get what you need, you might not have to spend as much as you think, as long as you know what to look out for.

We've reviewed some of the best Oral-B brushes, so you can find the one that's perfect for you. Check out the pros and cons of each one below. And if you want to find out more about the features on offer, have a look at our buying advice after the chart. 

If you'd like more options, have a look at our round-up of all the best electric toothbrushes we've tested, regardless of brand. And if you know the model you want, check out the best deals we've found on electric toothbrushes to see if we've spotted a discount on it. 

1. Oral-B iO Series 6

1. Oral-B iO Series 6
Pros
  • Best value iO brush
  • Powerful cleaning
  • Good screen & app
Cons
  • Expensive replacement heads
  • Relatively short battery life
$149.99

If it's within budget, this is the Oral-B brush we'd recommend. Yes, it's still expensive but it's in the sweet spot where the best features meet the most reasonable price. 

Plus, we'd advise buying at its regularly discounted price of around £110.

The iO range has Oral-B's best-ever cleaning performance, and the iO6 has five cleaning modes, a brushing timer and a light-up pressure sensor ring. It's also app-compatible for real-time brushing feedback.

The main compromises, when compared to more expensive iO models, are the monochrome screen (the iO8 and above have a full colour display) and a more basic charging dock. There are fewer brushing modes as well.

We're not as keen on the fact that a brush at this price point doesn't have a USB charging option, and the battery life could be much better. You'll only get 10 days of use - or less if you brush for longer than two minutes at a time.


2. Oral-B Pro 3 3000

2. Oral-B Pro 3 3000
Pros
  • Two week battery life
  • Pressure sensor
  • Brushing timer
  • Good cleaning performance
Cons
  • Noisy
  • Slippery handle
  • Button hard to press
Not available in US

If an iO is just too pricey, the Pro 3 3000 has all the features you need to take care of your teeth, as well as a very good brushing performance.

This electric toothbrush has a brushing timer that alerts you every thirty seconds to move onto a new section of your mouth and lets you know when your dentist-approved two-minute brushing session has finished.

It also has a bright red pressure warning light that lets you know if you're pressing too hard.

Although we think it's great value, we don't love everything about it: charging takes a long 12 hours; its battery warning light doesn't give you much brushing time; and it doesn't stop after two minutes, so you'll need to give its inset button a hard press to switch it off.


3. Oral-B Genius X

3. Oral-B Genius X
Pros
  • Best app feedback outside of the iO brush range
Cons
  • App feedback makes it hard to share brush handle
$219.99

If you want brushing feedback from an app but don't want to go for an iO (the Genius range has much more affordable replacement brush heads), the Genius X could be for you. 

It claims to be AI-driven, but we think this is pushing it a bit. However, it does feature intelligent position detection technology, so it can tell where in your mouth you're brushing. If you tend to neglect harder-to-reach areas of your mouth, this brush could put you back on track.

It cleans brilliantly, has six brushing modes and a pressure sensor.

The only issue is that if the handle is shared, and more than one person wants to use the app to keep track of brushing stats, you'll have to be diligent about taking your phone along to your brushing sessions, as otherwise info can be synced to the wrong account. 


4. Oral-B iO Series 9

4. Oral-B iO Series 9
Pros
  • Full colour OLED screen
  • Brushing feedback
  • Excellent cleaning performance
Cons
  • Short battery life
  • Underwhelming accessories
$299.99

This brush is Oral-B's flagship product, with an eye-watering price tag to match. Again, though, buy it at its regularly discounted price (around £250).

It's slick, feature-packed and slightly over-the-top, with a full-colour OLED screen that greets you in the morning and flashes you a smile if you brush well.

But it also has Oral-B's best brush tracking technology, seven brushing settings and a light-up pressure sensor that not only tells you when you're pressing too hard but when you get it just right.

And when it times your brushing session, it provides a countdown timer on the brush handle screen so you can see exactly how long you have left.

Apart from brushing feedback, most of the rest of the app functions feel like filler. But that's okay because the OLED screen allows you to ditch the app and still enjoy most of its features.

On the negative side, the iO9's battery life is not as good as some competing brushes at this price point and you'll be lucky to get more than 10 days of use before it needs to be charged.


5. Oral-B Pro 2 2000

5. Oral-B Pro 2 2000
Pros
  • Two week battery life
  • Pressure sensor
  • Brushing timer
  • Good cleaning performance
Cons
  • Only 2 brushing modes
  • Battery light comes on just as it's failing
$69.99

If you want a great value Oral-B brush but feel that the handle of the Pro 3 3000 looks a bit slippery and shiny, this is the brush we'd recommend. 

It's around the same price point, perhaps even a little cheaper. It only has two brushing modes (daily clean and sensitive) instead of three, but you'll get the same pressure sensor and brushing timer.

It has the same flaws as well. It takes around 12 hours to charge and you'll only be notified by the battery light right when it's giving up the ghost.


6. Oral-B Genius 8000/9000

6. Oral-B Genius 8000/9000
Pros
  • Good cleaning performance
  • App feedback
Cons
  • Feedback is less advanced than Genius X or iO
$179.99

These are powerful electric toothbrushes that deliver great cleaning performance, with plenty of brushing modes, a pressure sensor and app support.

The difference between the 8000 and 9000 Series brushes are minor: colour options and additional cleaning modes (the 9000 has a deeper cleaning mode and a tongue care mode).

`As these are slightly older brushes, prices can vary a lot. We'd suggest shopping around and looking for deals before you buy. 

Use the brush with the app and you'll get feedback on how long you brushed for and if you pressed too hard on your teeth. It also has position detection software, but it's not as accurate or detailed as Genius X or iO brushes.


7. Oral-B Vitality

7. Oral-B Vitality
Pros
  • Brushing timer
  • Grippy handle
  • Good price
Cons
  • Oscillates only
  • No battery light
  • No pressure alert
$20

As you might expect from its price point, this brush is light on features. However, what makes it harder to recommend is its cleaning performance.

It's one of the few Oral-B brushes that only oscillates - this is Oral-B's "2D cleaning system". Unlike the other brushes in this round-up, it doesn't use sonic vibrations at all, which seriously impacts its cleaning performance. 

It has a brushing timer, but it lacks a pressure sensor. And there's no battery light, which makes it hard to tell if it's charging properly when you set it in its stand.

However, if your budget is tight, this will serve you much better than a manual brush. It'll ensure you brush for long enough and its oscillation-based cleaning will give your teeth a bit of an extra polish.
