Hum’s guided brushing makes better oral care a no-brainer, helping you improve your oral health day after day by guiding you through a brushing method approved by oral health professionals.
With this feature, you’ll get real-time coaching during your brushing session where the 3D jaw model will indicate—live—which areas need extra attention among the 16 zones of your teeth. You’ll also get suggestions on your brushing movements, angle, and speed. For optimal results, we recommend that you keep your phone at eye level for this activity.
You can start using the Guided brushing by pressing the toothbrush button. When starting a guided brushing session, the following screen appears. The blue-colored area highlights the active zone that you have to brush.
At the center of the screen, the percentage indicates the surface brushed for the active zone, meaning the zone that you are currently brushing.
Once an area is properly brushed, the progress indicator in the center will show "100%" and the zone will become colored in white. The next zone is then highlighted and becomes the active zone. This will continue until all zones are clean, helping you reach every last bit of plaque.
Note: If you spend too much time in one zone, the Guided brushing feature will suggest moving to the next one even if you don't reach 100% in order to prevent potentially damaging your gums.
Live progress bar
Below the 3D jaw, you’ll find a live progress bar that shows you the performance of each of your 16 brushing zones, represented by different colors.
- Blue: zones that you missed or haven’t yet brushed
- White: zones where you achieved 100% coverage. Good job!
- Purple: zones that are in progress, which eventually turns to white (clean) or blue (missed).
Pausing the brushing session
At any time during your Guided brushing session, you can pause the brushing by pressing the toothbrush button. The pause screen is then displayed.
In the bottom, there is a timer that shows you how much time you’ve spent in this brushing session. When you pause the brushing session, the timer also pauses.
End of the brushing session
Once you’re done with your brushing session, you can turn off your toothbrush, and the summary of your session will appear on the app.
