Oral B Pro 1000 Review – Professional Care Rechargeable Toothbrush By Braun

By Ted Gerner | September 28, 2018

Even the entry-level rechargeable toothbrush like Oral B Pro 1000 offers an easier way of daily complete mouth cleaning. Compared to using a manual brush, rechargeable brushes can get through most of your plaques, even those in the hard to reach places. As a result, you can expect to have a cleaner and healthier teeth and gums.

This may be the very reason why more and more people shift from using a manual brush to an electric toothbrush.

OralB 1000 is one economical choice for a power tooth brush. It has all the basic features that one would need an electric toothbrush, and comes cheaper compared to other brands of its kind. With its advanced cleaning technology, Oral B Professional Care 1000 has been proven to remove up to 97% of plaques, including those in between your teeth and gums. With this, your mouth can enjoy an overall improved condition.

Features

Technology

The OralB Pro 1000 uses Floss Action Technology to get rid two times the plaques compared to using a manual toothbrush. This advanced cleaning technology goes through every part of your mouth, getting rid of plaque where normal brush misses.

Technically, this technology provides an ultimate complete mouth cleaning, removing plaques between your teeth and gum line, leaving you with healthier teeth and gums and feeling as if you just have gone to a dentist visit.

With consistent use, the this Oral B brush promises to improve the total condition of your teeth and gums. This sits very well, especially for people who have mouth problems.

Timer Feature

This rechargeable toothbrush comes with a Professional Timer. Though, high-end models usually come with more than one timer option, having just one is proven to be enough for an average user.

The Professional Timer sends a short stuttering sound every thirty seconds for you to equally brush your mouth’s four quadrants. A long stuttering sound is sent out after the two-minute recommended brushing time has elapsed.

Oral B Pro 1000 Brushing Modes

Oral-B Pro 1000 comes with one cleaning mode. The Daily Clean Mode is recommended for everyday mouth cleaning. It provides complete and thorough mouth cleaning to ensure that your teeth and gums are freed of any plaque. If you are looking for a toothbrush with more brushing modes, you should check out OralB 3000 or 4000 models.

Rechargeable Battery Features And Charger

OralB Pro 1000 also comes with a charger unit that you can use for recharging the toothbrush. It takes about 17 hours to fully charge the toothbrush, and that typically lasts up to two weeks, if used twice daily for two minutes.

The red low charge indicator lights up to signal you that the battery is low. And a green indicator light flashes up telling you that the toothbrush is being charged. To keep the maximum capacity of the toothbrush’s rechargeable battery, it is advisable to unplug the charging unit and fully discharge your handle every after 6 months of regular use.

Pressure Sensor

OralB Pro 1000 rechargeable toothbrush comes equipped with a pressure sensor. This feature monitors the pressure that you put on your teeth and gums when brushing. If it senses that you are applying to much pressure, it will automatically stop the toothbrush’s rotation. This helps in preventing mouth inflammation.

Indicator Bristles

This advanced technology from OralB is designed to remind you that your brush heads need replacement every three months through the halfway faded bristles.

Design

The toothbrush handle has a simple design, coming in a combination of blue and white colors. The front (where the button is placed and where you can see battery light indicators) is dominantly blue, and then the rest of the handle is clothed in white. The handle seems to be pretty easy and comfortable to use. It seems to be rigid when handled, even when wet with water.

The brush head also seems to be very easy to attach and detached from the handle, for the user’s convenience.

Customer Reviews

This toothbrush is getting great reviews, especially since it mostly offers basic features. This speaks greatly about the quality of the toothbrush. One positive feedback that it got from the user reviews says that its design is very well thought and impeccably made. The brush heads may be small but are very effective since it tightly hugs your teeth and gums, resulting in more thorough clean.

However, some people noticed that it is a bit noisier than other models or brands. Though it does not really give out annoying sound, it something you might want to consider if you think having a little sound can distract you.

Pros

So why would you want to buy an OralB 1000 rechargeable toothbrush? Aside from its mouth cleaning capabilities, it is undoubtedly very inexpensive for an electric toothbrush. Its price tag is not as high, but you can still get and enjoy the same cleaning abilities and qualities.

It can hold up to two weeks of charge and is very compact in size, making very easy to bring around just about everywhere. The available brushing modes may be basic, but it is more than enough to cater to different dental needs.

Cons

For a basic electric toothbrush and practical price, the OralB Pro 1000 seems to be a very wise choice so there really is no solid issue on why you would have to think twice in buying this toothbrush. Though, as said, it may give a little sound but if you can deal with a little but not annoying sound, then this is definitely not enough to break the deal.

Alternatives

There are several alternative models in this price range. To make your life easier we have already compared this toothbrush with OralB 3000 and with Philips Sonicare Essence 5300.
