Oral-B Pro 3000 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush Review – It gets really difficult to choose the right kind of electric toothbrush when there are plenty of options available in the market. Many factors such as effectiveness, comfort, handling, usage, and the price come in the mind before opting for the best one. While everyone is not an expert in the field, they have to rely on the reviews, from the consumers and critics. Oral-B Pro 3000 is one such innovation that doesn’t need any introduction in the electric toothbrush market. It is one of the very few products in the market that is recommended by the dentists for healthy and whiter teeth. This affordable toothbrush is far better than a manual toothbrush but also exceeds to other electric toothbrushes.
Design, Build and Accessories
The professional care series from Oral-B derives some of the best electric toothbrushes in the market due to its attractive design and amazing functionality. The package comes with a brush handle, 2 brush heads and a charger – pretty standard accessories available in almost every electric toothbrush. Not just attractive, but simple design of the brush makes it very easy to use. The brush handle comes with a blue rubber strip at the front, which is pretty strange considering the grips are usually installed on the sides of the handle. However, you will get superior handling even if your hands are wet due to the series of contours provided at regular intervals. The back side is made up of a white glossy plastic, making it a quality looking product.
The Oral-B Pro 3000 electric toothbrush is pretty slim in comparison to other products, adding an aesthetic value to the product. There is a single power button, with an LED indicator at the back. The indicator works on the principle of the pressure sensor, which lights the LED if extra pressure is applied to the brush head. At the front bottom of the handle, is a charging display. The display indicates red light if the battery is about to die and green light when the brush is kept on charging mode. Cross Action and Sensitive are the two brush heads included in the package.
Talking about the mechanism, the Oral-B electric toothbrush uses 3D oscillating rotating motion, known to effectively remove the plaque much better than the regular toothbrush. The rotating and pulsating motion ensures a 100% removal of the plaque to even the hardest areas of the mouth. The round head of the brush provides a complete coverage of the tooth to make it clean and white. Moreover, it has CrissCross bristles angled at 16 degree that reaches deep between the teeth, which is otherwise impossible to attain from the regular toothbrush. An indicator bristles present in the head reminds the users to change the heads at regular interval. Normally, it is advisable to replace the head after 3 months.
A total of 2 minutes of the automatic timer is included in the brush that will turn off the device as soon as the time is up. It gives a buzzing sound at an interval of 30 seconds indicating a change in a quadrant of the mouth. The brush makes a total rotation of 40000 strokes per minute, which is much higher number compared to other brands.
There are 3 operational modes available namely, Daily Clean- a standard mode for daily usage, Whitening- ideal for shinier and whiter teeth and Sensitive- gentle towards the teeth and gum for people with sensitive teeth. It also comes with a three years of warranty.
While, all the above features are exceptional in its categories, the only disappointing thing about the product is the battery life. A full charge on the brush can only last for about 7 days, which is very less in comparison to other models and the very reason for a slimmer body.
The Oral-B Pro 3000 electric toothbrush by Braun is a good mid-range product in the ‘Professional Care’ series. Had it not been the weak battery life, this product would have topped the list of dental healthcare. What lacks in the battery life more than makes up for a superior design and excellent performance. The company boasts of cleaning the teeth in 2 weeks and the results are definitely visible in prolonged usage, if not in 2 weeks.
