The Braun PRO5000 has separate, wireless SmartGuide which helps maximize brushing performance. With excellent Cleaning action it provides 40,000 pulsations and 8,800 oscillations per minute. Thanks to the professional 2 minute timer with 30-second intervals it helps guide you through the four quadrants of the mouth, making it easy to track how long you've been brushing while the Pressure sensor will stop pulsations to notify you when you're brushing too hard. It has a Digital clock which acts as a clock when not in use and with 5 customized brushing modes: Daily Clean, Sensitive, Whitening, Massage & Deep Clean. The Indicator bristles will remind you to replace your brush head every 3 months, once they've faded halfway and the multiple attachment brush heads with compact, round design as well as the Oral-B FlossAction Brush Head which offers outstanding interdental cleaning. There is a Base station toothbrush holder with protective cover as well as a travel toothbrush case that is designed to protect your brush anywhere you go. Thanks to the charge-level display it lets you gauge how full the battery charge is.

In my opinions the positives of this brush are:
4 cleaning modes - Great if the brush is shared between different people with different needs and wants.
Slim and comfortable to hold and looks smart finished in blue and white. The rubber on the front is nice to grip onto.
Built in timer for 30 second and 2 minute intervals
A pressure sensor lights up red to tell you when you are brushing too hard.
Smart Wireless Guide - A clock like gadget that times your clean and shows your performance. Good aid for improving your brushing.
3 year warranty if you register the brush online
The negatives are:
Battery life is only 7 days (based on one person). Philips offer up to 3 weeks.
It is expensive and the Pro 6000 offers more but you could get something for a lot less
The first thing to say is that, if you are still using a manual toothbrush, you should really switch to an electric one if you can. Every dentist and hygienist I have ever visited would support this, and I know myself the difference it makes to dental health, especially gums. As to your choice of electric toothbrush, that depends on personal preference. From my experience, the good features about Braun/Oral-B toothbrushes are as follows:
- Super-reliable. I have bought a series of brushes for all my family, and my original one is still going strong after 15 years
- All models can use all brush heads. The design of brush heads has not changed in all the time I have used them, so no issue with compatibility or being forced to upgrade (as razor makers seem to do)
- A range of brush heads to suit different needs, including specialist ones for interdental, sensitive and whitening. Spare heads are widely available (although cheapest online, such as on Amazon)
- Comfortable to hold and easy to manouevre around your teeth.
So, what do I think of this particular model? (If you want to see the whole range, have a look at www.oralb.com/products/electric-toothbrush/professional)
This is towards the top of the range, and rather expensive. The good points are:
- you get a stand and brush holder, as well as a travel case that holds the handle plus 2 heads. The latter is a particularly useful addition
- you get top of the range performance in terms of oscillation and vibration speed (which not only cleans better but feels more comfortable - strangely, a faster speed seems to cause less of a jangling feeling than a slower one)
- a more powerful battery that should last for 10 days at least between charges
Some of the other "features" of the brush are more dubious:
- you get a little batter-powered display unit, which links wirelessly to the brush. When you start the brush, it automatically picks this up and starts a timer. You get a "smiley face" if you brush for a full 2 minutes. My 9-year-old daughter thought this was cute and it encouraged her to use the brush for a while. But actually, you get the same timing information from the brush (like all models, it does a little "stutter" every 30 secs and a big one at 2 minutes). So really, this is a bit of a gimmick (and one more bit of clutter in the bathroom!)
- you get some additional modes (which you cycle through by pressing the start button repeatedly), but I have never felt the need to use these. There is a slow ("sensitive") mode, an elongated 3-minute timer mode, a "whitening" mode (which causes the brush to change speed/vibration - sounding like a car accelerating through the gears) and a "massage" mode that gradually speeds up and slows down in a sine-wave fashion).
However, if you look at the comparison chart, you will see that you get the same speed, vibration and most useful 2 modes in the 3000 model, which will cost you considerably less. So you need to consider how vital a couple of extra modes and a separate timer display really are. To my mind, these are unnecessary gimmicks and I would consider the 3000 to be best value in the range.
One final point - ignore all the stuff about brush heads in the product description. If you want cross-action or whitening heads you can just buy them, for ANY model in the Professional range, so the fact that they are included with this one is entirely irrelevant.
