Oral-B has created the world's first smart toothbrush that connects to a phone via Bluetooth 4.0.

The Oral-B Pro 6000 Smart Series is an electric toothbrush capable of tracking a user's real-time brushing so it can offer personalised oral care. That means each user can set their brushing regime to suit them, giving more time to a certain area that needs it for example.

Data from brushing is recorded and charted on the user's mobile. It can even be easily shared with the user's dentist. Using pressure sensors and oscillating-rotating-pulsating technology the brush is capable of six settings: Daily Cleaning, Deep Clean, Whitening, Gum Care, Sensitive, and Tongue Cleaning modes.

Patients can work with their dentist to program routines into the app that will tell the toothbrush how to work most effectively. The app will then show the user their pressure levels and timings as they brush so as to achieve the perfect clean.

The Oral-B Pro 6000 Smart Series is available now in Boots for £229.99 and will be on wider sale from July. There is a Limited Edition Pro 6500 Smart Series model too.
