Oral B is a globally reputed brand and is marketed as being the most recommended toothbrush by most dentists all over the globe. This is also true in their electric toothbrushes, which will give you an assurance that its use will be a satisfying experience.
One of the best features of the electric toothbrushes from this brand (except Oral B Pro 500) is the pulsating mechanism at which the mouth is cleaned, unlike others that work primarily through vibration.
In many exerts reviews, it has been noted that pulsating toothbrushes can prove to be much better when it comes to breaking down plaque.
In addition, many have also found it good that their toothbrushes are equipped with indicator bristles. The bristles fade in color, which also serves as an indication that it is already about time to have the toothbrush head replaced in order to make sure of its ability to clean your teeth and gums.
There are many innovative features that are found in Oral B electric toothbrushes. One model, for instance, has Wireless SmartGuide, which leads to the provision of feedback in real-time in order to provide assistance in brushing. Their different models have deep action technology in order to make sure that overall mouth health is promoted without just concentrating on the teeth.
And the latest (but is it really the greatest?) electric toothbrush from Oral-B by Braun is the Oral-B Genius X.
I used to think that there is only one kind of Oral B rechargeable electric toothbrushes – the Oral B ProfessionalCare brushes.
It turned out I was wrong.
In fact, there are 3 Oral B rechargeable power toothbrush lines:
- Pro Series / Vitality – affordable
- Smart Series – premium models
- Genius Series – more advanced and expensive
- iO Series – most highly-priced
Let’s have a look at the most important features of these brushes and try to find out how do they differ and which one is the best electric toothbrush from OralB.
In some parts of the world, these models are also known as Braun electric toothbrushes.

Oral B Pro & Vitality Series
If you need an Oral-B rechargeable electric toothbrush that gets the job done without any extra features and does not cost like a used car, the Vitality and Pro Oral B models are something you should consider.
You will not get weeks of battery life and diversity of brushing modes from these toothbrushes, but they will do the required 2 minutes of brushing as good as the more expensive models.
The first thing you will notice when you look at this toothbrush – it looks different. Previous century different. Does it really work differently? Listen, kids. When we were growing up, all toothbrushes looked like that. Get over it.
Should you buy this model? No, you should not.
My advice – save up these additional $5-10 while you keep using your manual toothbrush and get a Pro model. I do not see any point in getting this old piece of technology.
Oral-B Pro 500
Is it worth buying? Check out the review linked below.

Oral-B Pro 1000
The Oral-B Pro 1000 does all these things and not a lot more.

Oral-B Pro 1500
The Oral-B Pro 1500 is the outlier in the Pro series. It is the only model with more than one mode (it has Daily Clean and Sensitive) and a 2-week battery life thanks to the new Lithium-Ion battery.
It is worth mentioning that it has the most powerful motor any Oral-B toothbrush has, with exceptional 45,000 movements per minute.

Oral-B Smart Series
If you have been shopping for a toothbrush, you have probably noticed Oral B models called the ‘Smart Series’
What does it mean?
The SmartSeries started almost 10 years ago with a couple of models that featured the Smart Display which was built into the toothbrush handle. The display provided the user with information about battery charge level, brushing time, and a few more things that improve the brushing experience.
Now there is the second generation, the Smart Series, with a contemporary design and Bluetooth connectivity. But the Oral B Pro 5000 from the first generation SmartSeries is still around, updated to the latest Smart specs.

Oral-B Genius Series
There is a fine line between the most advanced Smart Series toothbrush, the Oral B Pro 6000, and the Genius 8000. The defining feature of Genius Series is the Position Recognition feature that adds even more power to the OralB app.
Oral B Genius X is the latest Oral B electric toothbrush model.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here is the list of the FAQs about the Oral-B electric toothbrushes. I am addressing them as soon as I can.
Is the Oral B Pulsonic discontinued?
Yes, the Oral-B Pulsonic has been discontinued back in 2014. I did a quick search and found that you can still buy brand new Pulsonic toothbrushes on eBay. If you decide to go for it, make sure you also stock up on Pulsonic replacement brush heads. The current brush heads are not compatible with this old model.
