Did you know that roughly 64% of adults between the ages of 18-64 went in for a dental visit in 2017? That is a staggeringly low percentage considering how vital are teeth and mouth are when it comes to living a long and healthy life.
In no way is this statistic meant to shame anyone, but I do want to highlight the importance of dental hygiene. I was born with a defect where my enamel—the visible, outermost covering of your teeth—became brittle and deteriorated. My lack of enamel resulted in me having to spend countless hours in a dentist’s chair and loads of money. I mean, loads of money. Since getting all my much-needed work done, I have successfully maintained my teeth and gums through regular hygienist visits, flossing daily, and using an Oral-B electric toothbrush.
The way I keep a dentist level clean in-between hygienist visits is with the new Oral-B Guide; the first-ever voice integrated electric toothbrush with Alexa. It also comes with the Oral-B Connect app, which allows me to track my brushing progress over time, akin to how a fitness tracker works, but instead for your mouth! Additionally, the Oral-B Connect app will give you real-time feedback while you brush, letting you know if you’re not brushing long enough or possibly too hard. Believe it or not, the latter can damage your gums and enamel, so it’s best to make sure you’re doing it right.
You might think that having an app keep track of how well you’re brushing is a bit silly, but it’s not. In fact, it is kind-of necessary. I’m sure we all can admit to doing a lazy job sometimes when it comes to brushing, or perhaps even missing the required 2+ times a day. Having a record to monitor is a great way to know you’re doing right by your teeth, and most importantly, your health.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the six cleaning modes featured on the handle: Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening, Tongue Cleaning, and Pro Cleaning. For me, I like to switch between Daily Clean and Sensitive modes day to day and use Whitening and Pro Cleaning once or twice a week. I find this gives me the best results.
Alexa in a toothbrush?
Did I mention it has Alexa built into its water-resistant base? That’s right, friends, Alexa! I never knew I needed an Alexa device in my bathroom until I started using the Oral-B Guide electric toothbrush. Start your morning off right by using the Alexa command to check the weather while you brush your teeth. Perhaps start your favorite podcast while you’re getting ready in the shower. My ideal way to wind down after a long day is to put on my favorite music playlist while I brush my teeth before bed. Of course, these Alexa commands go on and on, so utilize your favorites however you see fit.
