Which of These Oral B Electric Toothbrushes Is Best To Buy?
This is a tough one for us to answer for you. Choosing a model should be based on your personal needs and which area of your dental health you’re looking to focus on.
- The Oral B 7000 offers the most overall solutions for your dental health. Its 6 modes cover all areas: cleaning, whitenings, messaging and even tongue cleaning, which is an important part of oral hygiene that people seem to often miss.
- Thanks to the available brush heads, you can actually use any of Oral B’s electric brushes to fix your dental issue. However, if you do not want to invest in extra brush heads, pay attention to what type of brushes come bundled with your chosen toothbrush:
- Oral B 7000 includes 1 Sensitive, 1 ProWhite, 1 Floss Action, so it’s a great out of the box for someone who has sensitive teeth, wants superior plaque removal and wants whitening benefits.
- Oral B 5000 and 4000 come with 1 Floss Action brush head only, so if you’re targeting plaque problem only, you can do it with either of these. However, the 4000 has less cleaning modes than the 5000, and it does not have Bluetooth capabilities or a wireless smart guide.
Do Cleaning Modes Matter? And Can You Use a Brush Head Even If Your Brush Doesn’t Have Its Specific Mode?
It’s possible that you’ve asked yourself these two questions…. do cleaning modes really do matter and are they worth your dollars? It really depends…
What cleaning modes do is control how fast and in what direction the brush head moves in order to give you maximum results. By default, Oral-B’s electric toothbrushes oscillate and pulsate to give you 3D cleaning action, but the cleaning modes give you even more personalized experience to target your dental problem.
The most effective and noticeable mode would be Sensitive mode for example. If you have Sensitive teeth or gums, this mode would make all the difference to you as it slows down the speed of the brush.
Here’s a quick video that demonstrates how these cleaning modes work:
The other question is, let’s say you buy a model that doesn’t have Whitening mode, but it is compatible with a ProWhite whitening brush head, will it still work? Yes, it will still work. But will it be as effective? No. To get the maximum results, you’ll have to use the Whitening mode which controls the brush head in a way that is most effective for removing stains.
