*This review was done by Barb, a member of my review team.

The closest I’ve come to using an electric toothbrush is the old Water Pic I had many years ago. So I was very excited to have the opportunity to review the Oral B Professional Care SmartSeries 5000 Rechargeable Toothbrush.

I was impressed as soon as I opened the box the product came in. The SmartGuide display was on and made me want to see more.

Besides the big box that housed the Oral-B I was also sent Crest Glide Deep Clean Floss, Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste, and 2 bottles of Crest Pro-Health, alcohol free Oral Rinse.

What It Includes

The Oral-B Smart Series 5000 comes with:

  • a Waterproof, Ergonomic Rechargeable Handle with 5 Brushing Modes
  • A Portable Charger that fits into the Charging Station with Brush Head Storage
  • The Oral-B Wireless SmartGuide that has a pressure indicator and a professional Timer with Quadrant Prompt and a wall mount.
  • One Floss Action Brush Head
  • Travel Case.
  • Replacement batteries for the SmartGuide
  • A coupon towards more Brush Heads

First Impressions

Before I even opened up the Toothbrush box I got excited reading the contents. The first thing that caught my eye was the “Floss Action Brush Head”. This should be the perfect head for me. I HATE floss. My dentist gave me a rubber tip gum stimulator to use as I will not use floss. The second thing I saw I knew would be great for my husband, the Pressure Indicator. My husband kills a toothbrush in only a few weeks. The pressure indicator means that if you push too hard, you get a sad face and it flashes a red light on the handle.

Using the Oral B SmartSeries 5000 Rechargeable Toothbrush

It wasn’t difficult to get all the pieces ready to go. I was however disappointed that I had to wait for it to charge before I could use it. An electric toothbrush takes a little getting used to but I think my Dental Hygienist will be pleasantly surprised to see me at my next visit. Tarter builds up quickly on my teeth and I have a hard time so I go more frequently than usual for my cleanings. I can tell just by using it a few times that it will help with that. I like that it encourages you to spend enough time on each quadrant. I do wish the SmartGuide display would turn off to conserve battery life between uses. The five brush modes are: daily clean, deep clean, sensitive,
whitening and massage.

Final Thoughts

I am most defiantly a toothbrush convert. I love it! I’m a 4 star brusher and always have a Smiley face on display. What could be better, a toothbrush that encourages and makes you feel good about brushing your teeth!
