Brushing your teeth is one of those things that you just do. It’s like washing your face and taking a shower. You just do it. I have to admit, I never really thought too much about it. I brush my teeth like everyone else, go to the dentist twice a year, and get my new toothbrush every time I go. It’s pretty much a no brainer. I never gave my teeth the royal treatment with a special brush, that is until now.
I recently had the chance to try out the Oral-B Professional Precision 5000rechargeable power toothbrush. When I first took it out of the box I was a little overwhelmed by all the bells and whistles. I mean when you buy a regular old toothbrush at the drugstore you just take it out of the box and go. This had a few more parts. But I quickly got over it and started reading the instructions and found myself actually excited to brush my teeth.
The set up instructions were easy to follow. As I read on, I found the wireless smart guide to be a very cool surprise. This little gadget keeps track of how long you have been brushing and can even let you know when you are done with each quadrant of your mouth so you get the ultimate professional treatment. This was one of my favorite parts of this toothbrush. It takes the guess work out of trying to figure out if you’ve been brushing long enough.
While using the Oral-B Professional Precision 5000 toothbrush, I could actually feel my teeth getting cleaner when compared to my old school toothbrush. The oscillating and pulsating movements do make a difference when trying to get your teeth clean. This is something you’re not going to get from manually brushing. The only downside I found was it could be a bit messy. I’m the type of person who tends to walk around the house when brushing my teeth, especially if the kids are running here and there. That is hard to do, neatly, when you have a rotating toothbrush in your hand. But, if I stayed over the sink like a normal person, this wouldn’t be a problem!
A friend of mine told me once you upgrade to a rechargeable toothbrush, you never go back. I have to say I agree. I actually threw out the one from the dentist so my new Oral-B Professional Precision 5000 now has a permanent home.
