This is my old toothbrush:
My oral care routine used to consist of brushing my teeth twice a day and flossing when I remembered to (not very often). A couple of months ago I noticed that my teeth didn’t seem to feel that clean anymore. I switched to baking soda and water for a little while (turned my gums to hamburger), then switched to baking soda toothpaste. I even started flossing more often, but nothing seemed to make my mouth feel clean.
About two weeks ago I received the Oral-B® Professional™ Precision 5000 in the mail. I have never owned an electric toothbrush before so I was very excited.to try it out. This toothbrush is absolutely amazing!!
Doesn’t it look cool? It comes with a carrying case, a recharging station, a brush head holder (for up to 4 heads) and a wireless SmartGuide™, which provides real-time feedback to guide brushing.
After two weeks of brushing with the Professional Precision 5000, my teeth feel so much cleaner. I barely even have to floss since the compact, round Floss Action™ brush head surrounds each tooth for a tooth-by-tooth clean with unique oscillating, pulsating and rotating movements. I also like that the toothbrush flashes red when I use too much pressure on my teeth and gums.
My favorite part of the Professional Precision 5000 is the SmartGuide™. I began using the toothbrush with the default setting (Daily Clean), but after a few days my gums were pretty raw, so I switched to the Sensitive setting, which I much prefer. The other settings are Deep Clean, Whitening, and Massage. You can tell which setting the toothbrush is on by checking the icon on the SmartGuide™, As an example, the icon for the Sensitive setting is a feather.
The SmartGuide™ timer is set to Professional as the default, which is a 2 minute timer that beeps at 30 second intervals to remind you to move to the next quadrant of your mouth. Before I started using the new toothbrush I seriously thought I was brushing long enough, but after using the timer I realized I never even came close.
Now brushing my teeth is so much more fun!! My teeth are cleaner and my gums are stronger too!! I highly recommend this toothbrush!!
