The Oral-B iO Series combines powerful, but gentle micro-vibrations with Oral-B’s unique dentist-inspired round brush head design for a professional clean feeling every day. Theer are 2 types of replacement brush heads
The Oral-B iO has a different design and build to most other Oral-B electric toothbrushes. As a result the brush heads on offer are different to. The basic ethos behind the brush heads are the same, small and round, but the fitting and brush head styles are slightly different.
Existing brush heads from Oral-B are not compatible with the iO and the iO brush heads do not fit to or work with other Oral-B toothbrushes.
Therefore, if you have an iO Series 7, 8 or 9 electric toothbrush then you will need to ensure the heads you buy are compatible.
A new design is somewhat frustrating for existing Oral-B electric toothbrush users, but there are some benefits too.
The 2 choices are:
a) Ultimate Clean Refills – help remove plaque, leaving teeth feeling clean and bright.
b) Gentle Care Refills – use extra soft bristles to adapt to the curves of teeth and gums.
To summarise, these are essentially the iO equivalents to the EB series of CrossAction and Sensi UltraThin that are our recommended choices.
The Oral-B iO Ultimate Clean Refill Brush Head has a design to reach deeper in between teeth for improved cleaning. It removes up to 100% more plaque for cleaner teeth and healthier gums than a regular manual toothbrush.
The Oral-B iO Gentle Care Refill Brush Head has 4000 filaments for a gentle and effective cleaning experience.
