In this review of the Oral b genius pro 8000, I will be talking about the design, features, and other components of this electric toothbrush including the 360° SmartRing.
When it comes to dental hygiene, Oral-B is certainly one of the leading names in the industry.
In particular, they have created quite a reputation for themselves in terms of electric toothbrushes.
One of the more popular designs is the Genius Pro 8000.
Genius Pro 8000 Accessories
There are several components that you get with the purchase of the Pro Genius 8000.
You are provided with three toothbrush heads, each with a different function. You also get a power charger that you can use to charge your phone as well.
“There is also a cellphone holder”
Last but not least, you get a travel case in which all of the different pieces of the toothbrush can neatly be fitted into.
The Design of the Genius Pro 8000
The Genius Pro 8000 is topped off with a round brush, with the bristles situated at different positions on the brush.
The concept behind this design is to ensure that every tooth can easily be surrounded, allowing for the entire tooth to be cleaned at once. When accompanied by the other features of the electric toothbrush, this head has proven to get rid of a greater amount of plaque than regular brushes.
This is largely due to the crisscross nature of the bristles. They allow the brush to achieve a sixteen degree angle, meaning that the bristles can get in between teeth as well.
The Genius Pro 8000 comes with three separate brush heads – the CrossAction brush head, 3D White brush head, and the Sensitive brush head. The lower half of the toothbrush is compatible with multiple designs of the Oral-B toothbrush heads, however.
Genius Pro 8000 Features
There are certainly no lack of features for the Genius Pro 8000.
Therefore, let’s start at the beginning, with the actual brushing features of the toothbrush. The Genius Pro 8000 has what Oral-B refers to as a 3D movement cleaning system.
In addition to the rounded brush, the oscillating, rotating, and pulsing features of the brush work together to remove a greater amount of plaque.
There is also a built-in timer that sets two minutes on the clock when you start brushing your teeth. There is thirty seconds allocated for each section of your mouth. When your time is up, the toothbrush will beep, indicating that you should move onto the next area. The toothbrush will not stop at two minutes so you will have to counter the number of beeps that you hear.
This consists of a light that you can customize to flash a color that you would like.
There are twelve different color options. The SmartRing is more than for aesthetic appeal, however.
This is present to alert you to the variations in pressure as you brush your teeth.
This is to ensure that you do not use too much or too little pressure when you are brushing your teeth.
The SmartRing can be seen from every angle, regardless of where it is positioned in your mouth.
The Genius Pro 8000 can be programmed to carry one of five brushing modes at any given time.
These include the;
- Daily Clean mode
- Sensitive mode
- Pro Clean mode
- Whitening mode, and
- Gum Clean mode.
The Daily Clean option is for users who do not necessarily require any special attention while cleaning their teeth every day.
The Sensitive mode is for individuals who have sensitive teeth or gums and need to take greater care while brushing.
The Whitening mode is a polishing option to ensure whiter teeth.
The Pro Clean uses a higher frequency to make certain of a cleaner, more pristine mouth.
Gum clean is the option for keeping ones gums healthy.
Genius Pro 8000 App
One of the reasons of the Genius Pro 8000 is so popularly is due to the app that has been created by Oral-B. Once the app has been downloaded on your phone, it can be connected via Bluetooth to the toothbrush.
The Genius Pro 8000 comes with a handy phone holder to ensure that the phone is nearby as you brush your teeth.
Through the app, you are able to get real-time information about your brushing technique and how it can be modified or improved.
There is also a focused care option that allows you to tailor the toothbrush to fit in with your dentist’s recommendations.
There are many other options depending on the type of oral health that you are looking for.
You can tailor the experience if you want whiter teeth, have orthodontics, or require specialized gum care.

The Final Verdict
As far as electric toothbrushes go, the Oral-B Pro Genius 8000 is definitely one for the books.
It has so many different features that truly make it great at keeping your teeth and mouth incredibly healthy. It is also great for people of all different types of teeth and dental problems.
With just one toothbrush, you can make sure that all of your problems are taken care of. There has been a great deal of care and thought that went into designing this toothbrush and it has definitely paid off.
That being said, however, the Pro Genius is certainly not perfect.
This is not a cheap toothbrush and you could hope for better quality for what you are paying for, particularly with the toothbrush head.
This is also for people who are serious about their teeth and dental care. All of the features and the app accompanying this toothbrush means that you are going to be spending a couple of extra minutes each morning on your teeth.
If you are not willing to do so, the toothbrush could prove to be a waste of money for you.
Nonetheless, the Oral-B Pro Genius 8000 really is a thing of beauty and will give you the level of care that you want and need.
