Cleaner Teeth with an Oral B Rechargeable Toothbrush (Review + Giveaway)



Traditional toothbrushes are sometimes not very effective. Oral B Professional Care Rechargeable Toothbrush 1000 is a great addition to your daily oral hygiene.

The Oral B toothbrush is by Braun, and removes up to 97% of plaque from hard to reach areas and helps prevent and reverse that nasty disease gingivitis. The head of the toothbrush has cupping action, a pressure sensor, and indicator bristles. Indicator bristles become faded when the brush head needs to be renewed. No longer wondering how long you had your toothbrush. The pressure sensor stops rotation when you are pressing too hard. It is hard to tell just how hard you are brushing your teeth, but if brushing too hard you could be actually hurting your teeth. Dentist use tools that cup around you teeth. With the Oral B cupping action the bristles surround each and every tooth one at a time to insure better cleaning.

The Oral B Professional Care Toothbrush also includes a timer to prevent you from brushing your teeth too long, a waterproof rechargeable handle, and a charge level display so you know when you need to recharge.

I had the chance to review the Oral B Professional Care Rechargeable Toothbrush 1000. I liked that the toothbrush stopped rotating when I was applying too much pressure to my teeth. With this toothbrush, my teeth feel cleaner because it is easier to reach all of my teeth and thoroughly clean them. Using the Oral B toothbrush is better than a regular traditional toothbrush in my opinion.  You can get that dentist smooth clean feeling right at home.  It also makes for a perfect anytime gift.  A great gift  for Mom, Dad and the upcoming Graduate.

I also like the fact it has indicators on it if you are brushing too hard, which is a huge benefit to your enamel on your teeth. I recently had braces taken off after 2.5 years (as an adult) and this would be a great brush to have for my new improved smile! :-)

    I could benefit because it would do a better job of brushing my teeth. It removes up to 97% of plaque. I floss but I’m not sure how much plaque I remove. It also prevents gingivitas and the cupping action around teeth would be beneficial for my oral health.
