Oral-B Pro 1000 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush Review – Brushing can be a great experience with an electric toothbrush. Nowadays, manual toothbrushes are slowly fading away from the market and being replaced by an electric toothbrush. For many reasons, it is a right choice to replace the old style of a toothbrush with the latest one. Electric toothbrush offers better cleaning results with minimum efforts. As opposed to the manual toothbrush, where you have to oscillate the brush on your own, an electric toothbrush works on a powerful motor, hence, once you turn it ‘ON’, it will take care of your teeth and gums in a most gentle manner.
With so many electric toothbrush in the market, it gets confusing to decide the best one. Normally, the top end models are installed with set of latest features and technologies that is aimed to make brushing effortless and effective. However, many people opt for simplicity because they do not need the latest features. Under such situations, Oral-B Pro 1000 is the first name that comes to the mind from the wide range of electric toothbrushes. It is a simple brush that provides the best experience without any of the multi-faceted features.
Design, Build and Hardware
Being simple doesn’t necessarily means that it is not effective. There are many people who may not cherish the idea of having too many complex features and rather opt for simple brushing needs. Oral-B 1000 is best described as a simple yet effective toothbrush in the market. The package delivers a brush handle, a brush head and a charger. It doesn’t include anything extra in the box. The design of the brush is kept minimalistic with the looks of a premium product. The front panel of the handle is a made from rubber that allows the easy handling of the brush.
The Oral B rechargeable brush comes with two different color options: Black and White. The sides and the back end of the handle has a glossy finish. The overall design of the brush is kept subtle and it weighs just 12 ounces. There is no excess bulk on the handle, hence the weight is evenly distributed throughout the brush. The front rubber panel consists of a power button and a battery indicator. Despite having a pressure sensor, there is no LED indicator, rather the pulsation stops if excess pressure is applied while brushing.
There is only one brush head available with the package and the battery lasts for about 7 days on a single charge. One thing that it lacks is a travel case, hence, you will have to buy one if you are planning to take it along on a journey.
It has been said that Oral B electric toothbrush provides 100% effective results than a normal toothbrush and 300% better results along the gum line. The brush works on a 3D oscillating system that sweeps on horizontal motion and pulsates to deliver the best results.
The brush employs a 2-minute timer, with a buzz at an interval of 30 seconds to ensure that all the areas of mouth are equally covered. Unlike other models, it only offers a single operational mode: Daily Clean to support daily cleaning purpose. The CrossAction bristles of the brush head are angled at 16 degrees to reach the innermost and difficult areas of the mouth such as between the teeth and remove any plaque or food debris.
While you only get one brush head with the device, the handle is compatible with many other brush heads available from Oral-B. All the brush heads are meant for specific cleaning purposes, from everyday cleaning to special needs. As mentioned above, there is not a visual reminder to a pressure sensor, hence, it will stop pulsating if too much pressure is applied on the head.
Most times simplicity is the primary requirement and Oral-B 1000 is the ideal for this. It doesn’t have the latest features like Bluetooth and other operational modes, but the entire purpose of brushing is to get maximum results and Pro 1000 excels at delivering the optimum level of performance just like the top end models. Moreover, it also comes with a 2-year warranty, hence, quality is never going to be the problem. It also comes with a very reasonable price tag.
