As a brand, Oral-B is dedicated exclusively to dental hygiene. But which is the best Oral-B electric toothbrush to buy? We’re here to help.

While other brands in the list of best electric toothbrushes create a wide range of products across a number of categories, Oral-B is dedicated to keeping your mouth and teeth clean.

It has a wide range of electric toothbrush models, each catering to a slightly different need or budget.

But which model is the best?

There’s never a single answer to that question because everybody has different needs. But to help guide you we’ve done the research to come up with this list of the best Oral-B electric toothbrush models in Australia.

These are the best Oral-B electric toothbrush models in Australia right now:

Oral-B Genius X

Recommended by 4/5 review sites

The Genius X electric toothbrush from Oral-B is an impressively advanced electric toothbrush.

It automatically detects your brushing style in order to offer you tips and feedback to ensure you never miss any of your teeth while brushing.

An integrated pressure sensor ensures that you aren’t brushing too hard by alerting you and lowering the brushing speed when you do press too hard.

It has six cleaning modes (including tongue cleaning!) and its battery should last about two weeks between charges, so you can take it on holiday with you and not have to worry.

Oral-B iO Series 9

Recommended by 4/5 review sites

Oral-B has packed the iO Series 9 with state of the art dental technology to give you the best possible brush.

It uses a magnetic drive system to power the brush. This means that the toothbrush makes the bristles themselves vibrate to create a gentle cleaning action.

It uses an intelligent tracking system to ensure you don’t miss any areas in your mouth, with an interactive display to help guide your cleaning around your mouth.

A two-minute timer helps keep you on track for a proper clean, vibrating every 30 seconds so you can move to the next quarter of your mouth.

Oral-B iO Series 8

Recommended by 3/5 review sites

While the iO Series 9 is Oral-B’s current flagship model in its iO lineup, the iO Series 8 is still worthy of consideration.

Featuring the same 2 minute quadrant timer and magnetic drive cleaning system, the Series 8 features many similarities with the Series 9.

It lacks the tongue-cleaning mode found on the Series 9, and only tacks 6 zones via its intenlligent AI system compared to 16 for the Series 9.

But it is also significantly cheaper, which makes it a good option for shoppers on a budget.


How we chose the best Oral-B electric toothbrush

Review sites – including this one – are subjective by nature. Everybody has a different opinion of what is best.

So to try and counter the fact that every best guide on the internet has a different opinion of what is best, we approached our list by combining the results of some of the top sites recommending electric toothbrushes on the market today.

To determine this list, we followed the same journey most consumers would follow: we went to Google.

We searched for “Best Oral B electric toothbrush” and identified five of the top results. It’s important to note that Google results can change often. The full list of sites we referenced is outlined below.

Referenced sites:

We listed out all of the Oral-B electric toothbrush models listed on each site, tidying up any slight differences in spelling or naming for consistency.

We calculated the frequency in which each product was mentioned across those five guides. The more frequently a product is mentioned, the more agreement there is between experts reviewing these products that it is, indeed one of the best products available.

We set a minimum of three mentions across all five guides to be eligible for inclusion here.

Before we created this page we took some time to remove products that are either unavailable, or difficult to find in Australia.

We also leveraged our own experience with products to ensure that we wouldn’t be recommending any product that doesn’t deliver.

Whether you decide to buy one of the electric toothbrush models above or something completely different, these are the things you should consider before spending your money.

Toothbrush family

There are five main families of electric toothbrush from Oral-B

  • The iO Series uses a magnetic drive system to deliver energy directly to the toothbrush’s bristles.
  • The Genius series uses state-of-the-art position detection to ensure you get the best possible clean every time.
  • Oral-B’s Smart family of electric toothbrushes offers real-time brushing feedback to assist you while brushing.
  • The Pro series uses 3D technology to oscillate, rotate and pulsate for a deeper clean.
  • And for those on more of a budget, the Vitality series offers 2D cleaning to ensure a superior clean to a manual brush.

Depending on the toothbrush family you want to buy, your budget will be the biggest deciding factor in which model to buy.

The cheapest Vitality models can cost as little as $30, while a top of the line iO or Genius model is going to be closer to the $500 mark.
