Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide

Posted May 19 2012 7:30am

How important is dental care to you? Do you know that the state of your teeth, mouth, and gums can be a reflection of your overall state of health? What are your current toothbrush and oral care habits? I try to floss and brush twice a day, and use a cleaning product like Listerine after brushing and also at work. Most days it’s only in the morning though. Do I have great teeth? My dentist says they are okay, but I could do more. Nothing major like gingivitis, not too much plaque, but there is some discoloration (hello coffee and red wine!) and definitely some decay. Though I urge my children to take care of their teeth, I’m afraid I’m not really a good example to them. I try to let them see that brushing teeth isn’t that difficult and can actually be fun and hope they’re inspired.

I was recently sent the Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide to try out. I can see how using the Oral-B ProfessionalCare 5000 improve your oral care habits, as it lets me know how long I’ve been brushing, when it’s time to move to a new quadrant, and makes sure the teeth are cleaned in each direction. For someone who’s not consistent (like me), this product could be the answer.

Very high-tech, especially to someone who has always used a manual toothbrush. Wireless communication? Wow.

The nitty-gritty:
  • The Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide is Oral-B’s most technologically advanced toothbrush providing the most advanced cleaning technology for ultimate plaque removal and also features a wireless SmartGuide.
  • A pressure indicator lights up when brushing too hard.
  • Cleaning action: Provides 40,000 pulsations and 8,800 oscillations per minute which helps remove up to two times more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush, thus preventing and reversing gingivitis.
  • Whitening: While the ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide is gentle on teeth and gums. It also offers outstanding whitening and polishing in 3 weeks.**
  • Customized brushing modes: Daily Clean, Sensitive, Whitening, Massage and Deep Clean.
  • Brush head design: Provides a unique clean with the compact, round brush head that surrounds each tooth for a tooth-by-tooth clean. The pressure indicator lights up when you’re brushing too hard.
    • Indicator® bristles: Remind you to replace your brush head every 3 months, once they’ve faded halfway.
    • Replace brush head alert: Signals when you’re 10 days away from needing a replacement.
  • The set includes: 1 handle, 1 SmartGuide, 1 Smart Charger, 1 base station, 1 Pro White™ Brush Head with polishing cup that whitens teeth by removing surface stains,1 Oral-B FlossAction® Brush Head which offers outstanding interdental cleaning, and 1 travel case.
  • Professional wireless timer with quadrant prompt: Every 30 seconds, a brief signal will encourage thorough brushing of all four quadrants of your mouth. At the end of two minutes, a longer signal indicates when the dental expert recommended brushing time period has been reached.
  • Base station: The ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 can be displayed on your bathroom counter. The base station also features a toothbrush holder with protective cover.
  • Also comes with a travel toothbrush case which is designed to protect your brush anywhere you go.
  • Availability: Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 is available at department, retail and specialty stores nationwide at a suggested retail price of $159.99.
I’ll be trying out this new gizmo over the next couple of weeks and will report back later – initial results are promising!
