Review Summary: Oral-B Pro 6000 Electric Toothbrush
Much like the Pro 5000, this electric toothbrush is aimed at those who want to monitor and improve their oral health. People who don’t just want to brush daily and then see their dentist, but want to actively take control of how their teeth look.
The Oral-B app is very detailed and offers huge amounts of advice and tips as well as monitoring your brushing and creating dental plans for you to follow. The SmartGuide is amazingly motivating and is a great bathroom companion to keep you brushing for victory.
The four brush heads are all very useful in their own way and will allow you to experiment and see which ones work best for you when it comes time to order replacements.
Overall this comes highly recommended. Don’t let your teeth let you down and don’t let them down, take control and smile big.

About the Brand

Bring cleaning your teeth into the 21st century
This Pro 6000 Oral-B electric toothbrush is smarter than your average ten year old and will bring your teeth and mouth health into the 21st century. It’s perfect for those who are not only serious about oral health, but also those who like to monitor and improve.
The Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity built into this powerful electric toothbrush allows it to connect wirelessly to the Oral-B app - downloadable and usable on your phone. Through this app you and your dentist can monitor results, set goals and benefit from professional advice. Sound good? Damn right!
Benefit from a tailor-made dental plan
Setting goals for oral care is easy on the phone app and if you want whiter teeth within the next few months then no problem, input your goal and the app will create a tailor-made dental plan for you to follow and track. The app stores data for you to show your dentist and this will benefit you hugely because if your dentist can view accurate data then they can provide far more accurate advice. They’re expensive enough, get your money’s worth!
The app also monitors your brushing pressure in conjunction with the light alert on the handle. This tells you if and when you’re brushing too hard, potentially wearing down the enamel on your teeth and thinning it. Over-brushing is just as bad as under-brushing but with this alert, you’ll see whenever you’re going wrong.
With several modes, you'll get the most out of each brushing
This OralB Pro 6000 CrossAction Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush also comes with several modes to really get the most out of each brushing session. The Daily Clean mode works exceptionally well to break down plaque and get totally clean teeth, the Gum Care mode offers slower motion for massaging gums and keeping them healthy, the sensitive mode is also slow and gentle on the teeth and the Deep Clean mode offers three minutes of powerful brushing.
The SmartGuide will help to develop good habits
The SmartGuide is a little widget that gives you pointers visually as well as the buzzers of the cheaper models. With a quadrant guide, you can see where in your mouth and how long you should be brushing for as well as seeing when the two minutes is up and you can stop. Did I mention it doubles up as a clock? This is surprisingly motivating even for the grumpiest adults out there, clean your teeth well and it’ll give you stars and a smiley face. You’ll be bowing to its wants within minutes. Two in fact.
Four different brush heads
The four brush heads included are all different and ones that you’re not using can be stored in the brush head storage attached to the charging base. The CrossAction head delivers expert brushing using three different motions, oscillation, rotation and pulsation. The 3D whitening head alternates its speed to polish and get rid of those stains. The Sensitive head goes slow and steady and the FlossAction head really gets in the spaces to give a thorough clean.
The travel case here is a nice addition and not just for holidays. Think of that business meeting you have next week, what better way to ace it than to stride in with a firm handshake and a gleaming smile? Keep the brush hygienic and carry it in the travel case.
