Oral-B Pro 3000

A simple way to whiten your teeth without trying expensive whitening products is to change your brushing habits.

An electric toothbrush can, at a minimum, double the amount of plaque you remove by brushing compared to a manual toothbrush.

It’s not just from the spinning and vibrating action of the electric brush, but from simply brushing for the dentist recommended 2 minutes every session. Oral-B electric toothbrushes have built in 2-minute timers to help make sure you’re spending enough time on your teeth.

They also go a step further and recommend you divide your teeth into 4 quadrants and spend 30 seconds on each quadrant. By breaking your routine down into focusing on smaller sections you help ensure you don’t neglect certain teeth.

What else?

Most of Oral-B’s brush heads are circular and small. This design lets you use the brush on a single tooth at a time and conforms to the shape of your teeth and cleans the crevices between them.

These are great features that come with even the budget models, so you don’t have to pay a lot more to get a great toothbrush.

The Pro 1000 is a newer replacement model for the Pro 500.

If you’re worried about spending equal time in all areas of your mouth, then the Pro 1000 has what you need.

Ever been to the dentist and had them tell you one section of your teeth is much less clean than another? That’s usually because you don’t spend equal time in all areas of your mouth.

The 2-minute timer is great, but it’s still hard keep track in your head how long you’ve been brushing a particular section of your mouth.

By dividing your teeth into 4 quadrants you can spend 30 seconds in each quadrant. Focusing on a quarter of your teeth for 30 seconds helps ensure you’ve given them equal attention. So to help with this, the timer buzzes every 30 seconds to let you known when to move on to the next section.

Key Features

  • In-handle 2-minute timer.
  • 30-second buzzer to alert you to switch quadrants.
  • Pressure Sensor to stop pulsing if you brush too hard.
  • 300% improvement over plaque removal of a manual brush.

You get the 2-minute timer, like the Pro 500, but the additional 30-seconds buzzer is a huge bonus.

You want to get your teeth as white and clean as possible, but applying too much pressure can damage your gums. The pressure sensor automatically turns off the the brush.

The Cross Action brush head has precisely angled bristles at 16 degrees to help reach between teeth and remove more plaque than a manual toothbrush.

Like most other Oral-B brush heads, the Cross Action is small and round. This design is intended to make you focus the brush on one tooth at a time due to it’s shape easily conforming to a tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:How long will the Oral-B Pro 1000 hold a charge?

A: 7 days of regular use. To get the maximum capacity, deplete the battery at least once every 6 months (3 months would be better).

Q: How many cleaning modes does the Pro 1000 have?

A: A single mode.

Q: How does the Oral-B Pro 1000 with capped teeth?

A: It works great. It’s gentle and the pressure sensor keeps you from brushing too hard. It’s best to go slow around sensitive teeth.

Warranty

You get a 2-year warranty that covers defects. You can register your toothbrush here to receive a coupon for replacement brush heads.

Conclusion

Lots of great features come with the Pro 1000. The 30-second timer is really a game changer.

You still only get a single brush mode, but it’s plenty powerful. If you’re worried about brushing too hard the pressure sensor will keep you from hurting your gums.

Definitely a great entry-level electric toothbrush, and with all the features you get at this price it’s a bargain.


Oral-B Pro 3000 Toothbrush


(click to view on Amazon)

You know what your toothbrush needs? Bluetooth.

The Oral-B Pro 3000 lets you track your brushing routine using the Oral-B App when you have your toothbrush connected through Bluetooth.

Maybe you need the extra accountability, or like tracking your routine. If you tend to use apps like MyFitnessPal, then this may appeal to you.

You get many of the great features included in the Pro 1000. In addition to the 2-minute timer, 30-second quadrant timer, and pressure sensor you also get 3 brush modes.

Let’s break these features down further and see what the Oral-B App has to offer.

Key Features

  • Pro Timer buzzes every 30 seconds to let you know when to switch quadrants, and alerts you to when you’ve been brushing for 2 minutes.
  • Pressure sensor lights up to alert you when you’re brushing too hard.
  • 3 Brush Modes: Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive
  • Oral-B App to track your routine, record how long you brush too hard, add time to your routine for focusing on problem areas.
  • Charging station with storage for 4 brush heads.

The brush already alerts you to when you’ve been brushing for 2 minutes, so having the app timer running doesn’t necessarily help with that. The app does track how long the pressure sensor detects that you’re brushing too hard. You can, however, customize how much time you spend on certain areas if you find that certains spots need more attention.

All of the modes are accessed by cycling through the power button, so to turn the brush off you have to cycle through to the end.

Unlike the Pro 1000, the pressure sensor alerts you by lighting up a red LED when you press too hard instead of turning off the pulsations.

Oral-B Replacement Toothbrush Heads

You can use many different brush heads with the Pro 3000, but commonly people use the Floss Action and Cross Action.

Check out the difference below.

Oral-B Cross Action


(click to view on Amazon)

The varied bristle levels cover more surface area and help remove more plaque. The bristles are angled at 16 degrees to reach between your teeth. The small circular shape lets you do tooth-by-tooth cleaning, instead of the long brush strokes we normally do with manual brushes.

Compatible with any Oral-B handle (except the Pulsonic).

Oral-B Floss Action


(click to view on Amazon)

Though not meant to replace flossing, the Floss Action brush head performs a floss like cleaning due its bristle design. Again, you get the tooth-by-tooth cleaning due to the small circular shape of the brush head. This is highly recommended by dentists.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What’s the difference between the 3 brushing modes?

A: Daily Clean uses 3D movement for effective daily cleaning. Gum Care is a massage mode for gentle stimulation of the gums. Sensitive operates at a lower speed to gently clean teeth and gums.

Q: Does the storage for extra brush heads have a cover?

A: Yes you can store 4 brush heads on the charging base and it has a cover.

Q: How often do you need to charge the handle?

A: You can get 7 days of use on a single charge. You will want to completely drain the battery at least once every 6 months to maximize the battery life.

Q: Which brush heads are compatible with the Oral-B Pro 3000?

A: CrossAction, 3D White, Sensitive Clean, Precision Clean, FlossAction, TriZone, Deep Sweep, ProWhite, Ortho, PowerTip, and Dual Clean.

Warranty

You get a 2-year warranty that covers defects. You can register your toothbrush here to receive a coupon for replacement brush heads.

Conclusion

If the bluetooth and app appeal to you then this is the most basic model with those options. The Pro 3000 has all the necessities for timing your brushing sessions.

The app gives you the additional ability to customize your timing spent on certain areas of your teeth. You also get to see how long you brushes too hard via the pressure sensor.

Overall the app is a nice (and free) enhancement to the experience that lets you customize your brush to your needs. The additional brush modes help you get the right cleaning power you need.
