Review Summary: Oral-B Pro 4000 Electric Toothbrush
For those who just want to brush their teeth every day and be done with it, this Pro 4000 might be overkill and you might be better off with the Pro 2000. However, for those who are really dedicated to the health and visual look of their teeth, this is a good investment.
The 3D whitening brush head will help keep those nasty stains at bay and it’s amazing how even slightly stained teeth can detract from and age your face. For days when you need a more sensitive approach, the sensitive setting and brush head will be your friends while the Gum Care mode will keep your mouth healthy and happy.
This is a high quality electric toothbrush with all the settings you can expect from Oral-B. The buzzer alerts guide you through the brushing process so that by the end, you’ll feel as though you just walked out of the dentist’s office but without the bill in your hand.
- Three different brush heads
- Buzzer and light alerts for optimum oral health
- Several modes to get the clean you want

About the Brand
Safely under the powerhouse brand that is Braun, Oral-B is a highly reputable brand within the Gillette company and has been improving the oral healthcare of people around the world for decades. With a large range of electric toothbrushes, you should be able to find one that suits you down to the ground without spending much at all.
Three brush heads so you can see which is best for you
The Oral-B Pro 4000 is where the brand really starts showing off its technological capabilities and is designed for those who are really serious about their oral healthcare (which, really, should be all of us). With a range of three brush heads included, this electric toothbrush will give you the ability to test them out, see which one is best for you and really work on getting a beautiful smile.
Let’s talk first about brush heads, as they’re the unique thing that come with this Oral-B electric toothbrush. The CrossAction brush head is Oral-B’s highly expert brush and it works to clean teeth with three movements simultaneously; oscillating, rotating and pulsating. With this brush head you can expect to get rid of plaque up to 100% more effectively than if you were using a manual toothbrush.
The Sensitive brush head is…you guessed it…for those times when you need a more gentle, slower paced clean without compromising on quality. You’ll still be left with gleaming teeth but it won’t cause the irritation you might experience with other brush heads if you've got sensitive teeth and gums.
The 3D whitening brush head is a great addition to this and you’re going to want to use it before meetings, interviews, occasions and after those evenings of cheese and red wine. With alternating speeds, this brush head speeds up and slows down to really get to grips with those stains.
Avoid brushing too hard thanks to a built in pressure sensor
Oral-B has kept its pressure sensor function in this model, a brilliant addition that tells you via a lit up strip on the handle that you’re brushing too hard. Over-brushing in this way can lead to weak, thinning enamel and can be just as detrimental to your oral health as under-brushing.
Gentle buzzer lets you know when to move to another mouth section
With a gentle buzzer built in to the handle, this Oral-B Pro 4000 will alert you every thirty seconds that it’s time to start brushing another section of your mouth for an even, squeaky-clean result. After two minutes in total, the buzzer will go off again, this time telling you that it’s time to stop brushing. This buzzer is great because it’s easy to get bored of brushing and quit before the recommended two minutes is up.
The toothbrush comes with several different modes that can be cycled through using the button. Daily Clean is the standard every day mode and from there you can keep your gums happy with the Gum Care massaging setting and also the Sensitive setting, for a gentler brush.
The charging base for this toothbrush is larger than previous models because it has a storage space for spare brush heads. While you might want the smallest charger possible, this added size actually gives great stability to the base and stops you from mislaying your spares or getting them dusty on a shelf somewhere.
