4.0 out of 5 stars Keeps Our Teeth Nice and Clean, 9 Nov 2009
This review is from: Braun Oral-B Professional Care 500 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush with Precision Clean Brush Head (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The 'Oral-B Pro Care 500' pretty much does what it says on the tin. It is a good quality, easy to use electric toothbrush. My dentist has been hassling me to get one of these for ages, and I'll have to wait for my next check up for the official verdict, but I think there has already a marked improvement in tooth cleanliness.

The instructions are minimal and easy to follow - plug in, charge, go! Brushing time is timed to two minutes, in order to prevent over or under-brushing. I think this is fairly standard for this type of kit. The two minutes is broken down further into thirty second blocks, to ensure equal time is spent on each quarter of the mouth. Because you only have to concentrate on the moving the brush around your mouth and not the brushing motion itself, it's much easier to concentrate on those hard to reach places that your dentist nags about every time you visit.

Two small gripes. The moulded plug is two-pin shaver, presumably for bathroom safety. Unfortunately there isn't one of those in our house, but adaptors are cheap and easy to come by. My other moan is about the rigid plastic the whole thing was packaged in. It was very difficult to remove, sharp after having been cut open, and will probably still be landfill long after my teeth have been scattered on the four-winds. It was also entirely unnecessary, the cardboard box was plenty sturdy enough. These two minor moans apart this toothbrush is a very satisfactory product.
