Oral B Guide Alexa, the luxury smart health connected toothbrush that talks
Price: 229 € | Orabl B (group Procter & Gamble – USA since 1837)
The all-new Oral-B Guide from Procter & Gamble is an oral hygiene solution with a voice-activated toothbrush that promises to support you for more efficient brushing. But, she does a lot more if you’re willing to break your Passbook A for her.
The idea is topair a speaker with Alexa voice assistant with a smart toothbrush to make going into the bathroom more fun. The Oral B Guide becomes your oral coach.
Indeed, according to Carlos De Jesus, senior vice president of P&G, North America, only 20% of people brush their teeth properly. Let’s assume that you (and I) are among the 74% of French people who brush their teeth at least twice a day (after a meal and without snacking between), we have room for improvement.
Design and quality of the Oral B Guide Alexa
The Oral-B Guide is a compact 2-in-1 device designed for the bathroom and integrating the Alexa system. It uses a single outlet to limit the bulk. You benefit from a mini speaker with a 360 degree broadcast sound.
Its design is also designed to resist splashing water.
The base has 4 LEDs which change color depending on your actions:
- White light represents 30 seconds in each quadrant of your mouth (to arrive at a total of 2 minutes),
- It turns red if you brush your teeth too hard,
- And finally green when you have reached the recommended two minutes of washing.

The brush head is oscillating and rotating, it promises like most electric toothbrushes to remove 100% more plaque than manual brushing.
Initially, you can choose from the 6 brushing modes of the Oral-B Guide:
- Daily cleaning,
- Gum Care,
- Gentle for sensitive people (to be combined with very soft bristles)
