For good reason a mid priced powered toothbrush is the most popular, and the Professional Care 1000 produced by Oral-B sits in this level.
You have one speed and just 1 mode namely daily clean. For individuals with sensitive teeth or gums the ability to use a selection of brushing modes and speeds can be a useful virtue.
It has a two minute timer consisting of 4 lots of half minute periods being the advised brushing time complemented by a pressure indicator which warns if you’re brushing too heavily and perhaps result in gum injury.
This specific Oral-B works with a head that possesses a complex rotating oscillating pulsating action in contrast to a rudimentary rotation or vibration, the oscilation rate is 8800 per min and pulsates at a frequency of 40000 cyles per min. This variety of electric brush is proven to optimise your cleaning performance giving the user a dentist quality clean.
This brush comes with a removable brushing head. Only a single head is included in the package. It sits on a charging stand but this model has no storage case for brush heads or travel storage case to take it with you on the go.
The Oral-B Professional Care 1000, as with most, is a rechargeable model and incorporates a power indicator preventing you from getting left with a flat battery. It needs 14 hours to fully recharge the Oral-B. Battery duration should be 58 mins which equates to 58 of recommended usage before a charge is required however its probably advisable to keep the batteries fully charged following every brushing.
The Oral-B Professional Care 1000 is among the fastest to recharge but it exhibits a cleaning action we rate as unexceptional which has to be the main ingredient of any electric toothbrush. Also it has a charge capacity we judge as mediocre. All things considered this model does OK, although we’ve had better and is provided with a 24 month guarantee.
