Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide Recap

I feel like we have a pretty good tooth brushing routine in our house for the most part. Are we perfect, no! Do we miss a tooth brushing if we get home late from somewhere, yes! For the most part meaning the other 99.9 percent of the time we are on top of it.

Our nightly routine starts at around 8:15 – 8:30 when we send Shaun and Shae up to brush their teeth. Shaun actually visited an orthodontist on a school trip a few months ago and they gave him what I remember as an old school egg timer. It is filled with sand and you flip it over and once the sand moves from one side to the other they are done with their teeth. Shaun and Shae do a pretty good job and don’t really fight when it comes to brushing their teeth.

I also have a pretty good routine where I floss every single night and brush every morning and night. Up until I received the Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide I was using a no frills manual toothbrush. I have used a power toothbrush in the past and for some reason I went back to a no frills toothbrush and I have no clue why. I really like the Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide because it now forces me to brush for a full 2 minutes which I know for a fact after using this new power toothbrush for the last week I wasn’t doing.

Here are a few additional features I don’t want to forget to mention:

• Separate, wireless SmartGuide helps maximize brushing performance
• Deep Clean mode removes up to 99.7% of plaque from hard-to-reach areas
• Pressure sensor stops pulsations when brushing too hard
• Gentle on teeth and gums
• 5 modes: Daily Clean, Sensitive, Whitening, Massage, Deep Clean
• Oral-B is the #1 dentist-recommended toothbrush brand worldwide

I really like the wireless SmartGuide because it tells me every 30 seconds when to move to the next quadrant of my mouth. I also like the ability to choose from one of the five different modes because I use the daily clean mode and Melinda uses the sensitive mode. The pressure sensor is also helpful because it will show a frown face on the wireless SmartGuide as well as flash red on the toothbrush. It seems like every time I switch to a power toothbrush I tend to use too much pressure so the pressure sensor has come in handy.

Overall I am very happy with the Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide. Right now you can take advantage of the mail-in rebate offered by Oral-B (Oral-B is offering a $10 mail-in rebate on select power toothbrushes April 29 through June 16, 2012. Please visit for more information). Trust me you won’t be disappointed.
