The Oral-B 3000 electric toothbrush doesn't just vibrate; it pulsates to break up plaque. It also has an indicator that tells you when you're brushing too hard.
- Removes up to 97% of plaque from hard-to-reach places
- Helps prevent and reverse gingivitis
- Naturally whitens teeth in 21 days
The bristles of this toothbrush hit 16 different angles. That's impressive enough, but the 3D cleaning action takes it further. It oscillates, rotates, and pulsates to get all that plaque. And yes, it comes with a timer; you'll get those 2 minutes in.
What Reviewers Say:
With a healthy review score on Amazon, it's not unusual to want to know what others think about this product.
- I have owned 5 different models of oral b electric toothbrushes, in that time, (they are very durable and have lasted me many years) and this one is my favorite. The main reason I like it over all the others (from the $20 model to the wireless $200 model/pack) is that this one has a "brake light" which illuminates when you put too much pressure on your gums. Before using this toothbrush, I was a vigorous brusher, it just felt good to "get all up in there", but often, that is unnecessary and can even be harmful. I buy the "extra sensitive" heads/tips to mediate this, but I still tended to brush harder than needed, especially when I'm not "paying attention". Even though the other models had an "indicator" (different vibration or noise or icon), it wasn't really enough to get my attention so I didn't reduce the pressure.
- The Oral-B 3000 is a good brush and it gets my teeth "squeaky clean". It has good power and a lot of movement of the bristles on the head. If you prefer a longer bristled head as opposed to a round one, then this brush is not for you. But it is very effective in any case. You have to apply more pressure and move the brush more than with a pure sonic brush, but it works. There are 3 cleaning mode and I find the first to be the best. The second is a "gentle" cycle and the third oscillates between slow and fast.
- This new model is a definite step up from the ancient "Plak Control Plus" model that I had been using. It's full name is "Professional Care 3000" and it definitely feels and sounds like a professional dental instrument. The head oscillates at a much higher rate than my old one. Please note that this is not an ultrasonic toothbrush. Cleaning is accomplished here purely by mechanical brushing action. The small, rotating brush head and slender handle allow you to get at and clean each surface of each tooth very quickly.
