About the Brand
Trusted by millions all over the world, Oral-B has been going since the late fifties when it was founded by a Californian dentist. It has since been acquired by Gillette and operates as an extension of Braun, another household name in small, personal appliances. Oral-B is one of the go-to brands for electric toothbrushes and rightly so.
Do you travel a lot? Or have a partner?
This Oral-B 6500 is ideal for someone who travels a lot, spends time at two different houses or needs a toothbrush at work often. Because it comes with two rechargeable handles, you can have a toothbrush in two places at once or save loads of money and cover two people’s brushing requirements in one!
An electric toothbrush from Oral-B’s super modern range, this has Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity to enable it to talk to your phone and the Oral-B app. The app is fantastic and not overkill as you might expect. It helps you monitor and improve your oral care, tells you when you’re brushing wrong, keeps you on track with brushing goals and allows your dentist to access highly detailed and accurate information.
Modes and motivations
The SmartGuide is a separate timer that tells you when to move onto a different section of your mouth, tells you when your two minutes is up and offers little motivations that are surprisingly effective, even for adults. It also tells the time, always useful.
This smart toothbrush offers five modes to cycle through at the touch of a button. The Daily Clean mode is the standard and offers an effective clean, the Deep Clean mode extends the timer to three minutes for days you’ve been eating spinach or pesto, the Gum Care mode gives a gentle gum massage, the Sensitive mode takes it slow but effective and the Tongue Cleaning mode…well…I bet you can guess.
Removes more plaque than a regular toothbrush
Removing up to 100% more plaque than your regular manual toothbrush, this Oral-B Pro 6500 Smart Series Electric Toothbrush with Bluetooth Technology Powered by Braun will take your teeth and improve them dramatically. Teeth healthcare is crucial unless you want expensive and painful dental work a few years down the line; don’t compromise on your teeth, they don’t respond well to neglect.
Comes with a year of heads
The four brush heads that come with these toothbrush handles are all different and offer a range of cleaning methods. Not only is this useful for different days and needs but it’s also good for experimentation – it can be hard to know exactly what you need from a description, so these four allow you to get three months use from each before deciding which ones you love and need to reorder.
The charger is small and contains a brush head storage unit, crucial for keeping dust and bathroom muck off your spare brushes. It also adds a bit of stability to your charger base and is removable so you don’t have to take the whole thing on holiday with you.
The two handles that come with this are the same which is ideal if you want a toothbrush in two different locations or if you want to have the best oral healthcare but also want to save money and get excellent toothbrushes for two people.
