Smart electric toothbrush uses Bluetooth technology to time, track, and improve brushing habits
Unite your toothbrush and smartphone with the Oral-B PRo 5000 SmartSeries electric toothbrush. Using Bluetooth technology, you can time your brushing, track your progress on problem areas, and get your teeth cleaner thanks to the superior CrossAction brush head. If you are a technology junkie and want to take total control over your oral hygiene, this is the toothbrush you’ve been looking for.
Five cleaning modes
When you use a non-electric toothbrush, the only cleaning “mode” you have is whatever your hand motion is doing. With other electric toothbrushes, you sometimes get three modes or so. With the Oral-B Pro 5000, you get five modes: daily clean, whitening, gum care, sensitive, and deep clean. These modes cover every tooth need you could have and all you need to do is hold the brush steady.
CrossAction brush head
The secret to a good toothbrush is in the brush head. The CrossAction brush head has a special round design, so each tooth gets a thorough clean. The CrossAction bristles (called CrissCross bristles) have a 16-degree angle so they get between each tooth. This brush head is up to 100% more effective at clearing away plaque than a manual brush.
2-minute brushing timer
Most people don’t brush their teeth nearly long enough. Plaque is left behind, which then hardens to tartar and becomes much harder to clean away. The Pro 5000 has a 2-minute timer (the recommended time for brushing) that lets you know when to start brushing another quadrant of your mouth. You have four quadrants, so you brush each part for 30 seconds.
Focuses on important mouth areas
The timer on the brush is pre-programmed in 30 seconds increments, but if you have a particular problem, like a cavity coming in or other kind of “watch” placed on an area, you can set the time for longer for that part of your mouth. The toothbrush remembers this data so you don’t risk forgetting to brush longer in a certain spot.
Brush senses how you’re brushing
It is possible to brush too hard. Your gums are sensitive, and if you brush too hard, they can get inflammed and bother you all evening. The Pro 5000 has the ability to sense pressure, and will let up on the brush and your connected smartphone if you’re brushing too hard.
Tracks your brushing data
When you combine your toothbrush and the app on your smartphone, you can store up to six months of data on your brushing habits, with charts and graphs. This is a really cool way to see if you’re following your dentist’s advice on brushing. It’s also a great way to stay accountable to yourself and stick to better brushing habits.
With the Bluetooth connection to your phone, you’re getting a lot of info thrown at you at once. It’s cool that you can use your phone for tracking your brushing, but after a while, the novelty can wear off. Unless you want to stay really organized and informed about your brushing, it’s a hassle to use your phone every time you brush.
Electric toothbrushes make noise, but the Oral-b makes a lot of noise for some reason. Since you’re brushing (or should be) for 2 minutes, this can get annoying. However, it’s not like it’s as loud as a blender, so you’ll probably get used to it very quickly.
The Oral-B Pro 5000 SmartSeries electric toothbrush uses modern technology to help improve your teeth health. This is one of the earliest brushes to take advantage of the smartphone, so you not only brush your teeth better, you can track your progress. The timer and superior brush head are especially effective even if you aren’t crazy about the app, so you can clean your teeth and deal with problem areas and get great results.
