The Oclean X Pro Elite is a great all-round electric toothbrush with tech features that make it easy to customize your brushing regimen and monitor areas that you may need to work on. The touchscreen is easy to use, with 32 intensity levels and four brushing modes, as well as the option to change the duration of your brushing time. It’s reasonably priced for a smart toothbrush that works just as well as more expensive options.

The brush has app pairing features that allow you to monitor your brushing results (every time you use it, the brush will rate your session) and also see how quickly you might need to change brush heads. The app also allows you to review family members, making it easier for parents to monitor children’s brushing times and to see if there are areas in the mouth that may need special attention. The app can be overwhelming with lots of options and tabs, but once you get the hang of it, it offers you in-depth analysis that can improve your cleaning.

Oclean X Pro Elite Review: Design
The Oclean X Pro Elite is a sleek, gray brush with a large touchscreen in the center of the base that lets you choose your cleaning routine and check how well you’re doing it.
With the amount of settings it has, the toothbrush can be confusing at first, but it gives you a level of personalization that means you can find the best cleaning settings for you. There are four brushing modes with 32 intensity levels, so you can find a favorite whether you have sensitive teeth or want a thorough cleaning. The default brushing time is set at two minutes, but you can opt for longer if you’d like, with the touchscreen offering the ability to adjust the mode, duration and intensity of the brush itself. You can take a quiz in the Oclean app to find the right cleaning settings for your needs. We had ours set in white mode, four intensity and three minute brushing time.
The head is easy to change by simply detaching and snapping the top of the toothbrush back into place, with no turning or fumbling with knobs. The charger is USB compatible, which means you can plug it into a laptop or standard phone charger and it should be charged the next time you need to clean, which takes around 3.5 hours for a full charge. The charge lasts at least a month, with an animation indicating when the battery falls below 20% and needs to be charged.
The wall-mounted magnetic storage is useful and claims to keep the brush head bacteria-free as it prevents it from sitting on bathroom surfaces. We found the wall mounted storage to be a useful space saver in the bathroom. Oclean also sells holdalls, electric water picks and mount/charge options, and extra brush heads.
Oclean X Pro Elite Review: Functionality
The brush holds your hand during the cleaning process. It tells you when to move to a new section of your mouth by vibrating every 30 seconds and gives you a summary of your cleaning when you’re done, highlighting on-screen which areas you may have missed. This data is then stored in the app so you can track your daily brushing. If you have multiple Oclean X Pro Elites, there is a family mode in the app that allows you to monitor other family members’ brushing and check when brush heads need replacing.
The brush turns on automatically when you pick it up and turns off after a period of inactivity. You can pause it by pressing the power button and swiping the touchscreen to change modes. We found the touchscreen fiddly at first, but once we got the hang of swiping through the settings, it became easy to use. We’d also like to point out that the touchscreen might make the brush unsuitable for those with visual impairments due to its small size.
Oclean X Pro Elite Review: Performance
The brush head is a great shape for cleaning the entire mouth and our teeth felt clean after brushing even on a low intensity setting. We were expecting a round brush head, being used to oscillating brushes, but the speed at which the brush vibrates makes the longer, oblong brush head useful for cleaning tooth surfaces bit by bit like you would with a hand brush . As a sonic toothbrush, the Oclean X Pro Elite uses high speeds and high-frequency sonic waves to remove plaque from the surfaces of your teeth, brushing at up to 42,000 rpm. That’s faster than the average oscillating electric toothbrush, which operates at 1,300-8,800 rpm comes.
The battery life is what won us over with this product as we didn’t have to worry about storing it in a charger and only had to plug it in once a month. This is useful when you’re on the go and don’t have the time or resources to charge your toothbrush regularly.
Oclean X Pro Elite review: What’s good about it?
If you want to know exactly how well you brush and enjoy gimmicks, this is the toothbrush for you. We found the touchscreen functional and easy to use, and the app made it easy for us to keep track of brushing performance and target areas.
The brush is quiet compared to other brands, making it a less invasive experience, especially if you have sensory issues or are trying not to wake someone up. We found that if we accidentally bumped the back of the brush against our teeth, the vibrations made a loud noise and echoed through our jaws, but we managed to avoid this after a few uses.
Oclean X Pro Elite review: What’s not so good about it?
The Oclean X Pro Elite handle has no grip or texture, which may make it less suitable for those with fine motor skills or children. Although the grip is chunky, the vibration can make it easy to fall off when it’s on, and if you’re not careful you might accidentally lose your grip when detaching/attaching it from the wall mount.
Although the brushing score is useful with a picture showing you where to brush more, you can’t see it while you’re brushing, so if you’re neglecting a certain area you can’t correct it until you brush again. The app lets you keep track of these summaries, but if you’re in a hurry it’s not practical to check them before you start cleaning.
The lack of color choices might put some people off, as could the lack of a complimentary travel case. However, considering the performance of the brush, these elements are secondary to performance and ease of use.
Oclean X Pro Elite Review: User Ratings
Users rate the Oclean X Pro Elite highly, with a 4-star average on Amazon. People especially appreciate the battery life and the smooth, clean feeling of their teeth after use. The wall-mounted toothbrush holder is repeatedly mentioned for its functionality and one user praised it for its light weight and good portability. A few less positive reviews mention that the brush doesn’t vibrate with the strength or intensity of competing brands.
Should you buy the Oclean X Pro Elite?
We loved the Oclean X Pro Elite and would recommend buying it if you love analysis and getting down to the nitty gritty of your teeth cleaning routine. Family mode is also useful for parents who want to keep an eye on their children’s dental health or who want to be reminded when to change the brush head for other family members.
If this product is not for you
If you don’t think the Oclean X Pro Elite is the electric toothbrush for you, you might want to give it a try Oral B Genius X for another app controlled option or the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 for a sound-based alternative.
