Do you really brush for the dentist recommended two minutes, twice a day? I’ll be honest, I thought I was pretty good at getting in a good scrub but after trying out the Oral-B ProfessionalCare Smart Series 5000, it turns out I wasn’t lasting long enough. And if I’m not brushing long enough than I know my kids aren’t, time to break out the timer!
Actually the Oral-B ProfessionalCare Smart Series 5000 comes with a timer, in fact, it’s the most technologically advanced toothbrush I have ever seen! Not only does it give you a nice little count down to the two minute finish line, it shows you how long to brush each quadrant of your mouth and alerts you when you are pushing too hard – something I tend to do. You can select your own mode from the designated 5 – Daily Clean, Sensitive, Whitening, Massage, Deep Clean and find the one that best suits your needs for any given day. All of this is controlled from a wireless SmartGuide panel.Yes, your toothbrush has a wireless control panel! How cool is that?!
As high tech as this little scubber sounds, it’s actually very simple to use. The SmartGuide can sit on your counter, tuck away in your drawer or can even be mounted right onto the wall in front of you. The handle is nice and long and very comfortable to use. I’ve always preferred a manual toothbrush and it’s been my husband who was the Oral B user around here but I definitely noticed a fresh from the dentist polish when using this toothbrush.
