    Great product

    I've been a Sonicare user for a while now, and I wanted to see how the Oral-B Healthy Clean Precision 1000 stacks up against my Sonicare Healthy White Easy Clean. Both are basic rechargeable electric toothbrushes with few fancy features, but a emphasis on cleaning ability. The Sonicare is a more aggressive toothbrush, while the Oral-B is gentler. Sonicare seems to acknowledge that it's toothbrushes are aggressive because it gives them a feature called Easy-Start that ramps up power over the first 14 times you use the brush so you and your gums can get used to the punishment. No such feature is present or needed for the Oral-B. Instead of vibrating up and down against the gum line, the Oral-B's brush head oscillates rapidly. It is supposed to pulse as well, but it must be too subtle for me to see or feel. The overall feeling is a little rubbery. The other thing I noticed is that the brush head is thicker than the one on the Sonicare, meaning you'll need more room between your teeth and cheek when brushing your side teeth. The distance between the tip of the bristles to the back side of the brush head is ⅞" vs ⅝" for the Sonicare. It's not a problem for me, but I can see it might be an issue for someone with a smaller mouth. It may also be the reason Oral-B doesn't give you a cap with your brush heads.

    The Best

    Posted

    This is quite simply the best toothbrush I have ever owned. I was going to purchase a Sonicaire about 7 years ago, but on the advise of my dental hygienist bought a Braun/Oral B instead, because with its high-speed circular motion and small, round brush (she said) it surrounded and thoroughly cleaned each tooth. At that time I bought the more expensive dual-speed model (there are 4 different models, the 1000 through the 4000, with the 4000 being the variable speed top-of-the-line). My first Braun lasted almost 7 years before giving out, and I brush 3 times a day. Although this 1000 is a simpler model (I only need one speed), Braun has actually made some minor ergonomic improvements since 2006, which make a great product excellent. I recall from 7 years back that there was a few days of discomfort when I brushed (it is a high-speed, dental quality brushing), but that discomfort rapidly disappeared and now it is almost a pleasure to brush my teeth.

    Great electric toothbrush for the price

    When I first decided to buy an electric toothbrush I bought the Philips brand. I immediately returned that toothbrush after using it one time as it was extremely messy. The toothpaste and water would splash everywhere while brushing. I went back to Best buy and exchange that toothbrush for this oral b which is the best decision I could have made for an electric toothbrush. I like how the circular brush can clean each tooth individually. Also like that the speed isn't too fast where it's splashing toothpaste and water all over the bathroom. I would recommend this toothbrush to anyone who is looking for a beginner electric toothbrush.

    Great Toothbrush for hard brushers

    I purchased this toothbrush for my boyfriend who brushes wayy to hard. This toothbrush is great because it stops spinning when he is brushing too hard letting him know to ease up on the pressure. It is rechargeable and comes with its own stand. However I gave it one star less because the stand accumulates the water from the toothbrush and it turns greenish in color. I find myself rinsing the stand frequently to avoid looking at that green gunk on the counter.

    Cleans better than my manual brush

    Oral B comes through with shining colors as usual. I bought this for travel. I previously tried a competitor's manual brand, but wasn't happy. Years ago I used oral b, but switched now I'm back. Love the professional cleaning I get when using it. Feels like my hygienist just cleaned my teeth. I also bought 2 3000 models for my spouse and I for home use. I love it and won't be switching. They are pricey, but well worth every penny. Comes with charger and compact. Only down side is best buy didn't carry any other models except 1000 and very limited (no matter what location). And I wished it came with the Floss Action brush. I'm hoping to purchase our replacements at best buy if they start carrying more selections. You will fall in love on first use.

    Buy ORAL-B PRO 500 and save MONEY!

    I have a ORAL-B VITALITY, ORAL-B PRO 500, and the ORAL-B PRO 1000. The Vitality has a built in 2 minute timer but only pulses at the end of the 2 minutes, I find this to be big draw back. The Pro 500 and Pro 1000 have the 2 minute timers but will pulse every 30 seconds which I find easier to brush all quadrants of your teeth/mouth evenly. I find the so called "pulse feature" of the 1000 doesn't do anything since I do not even notice it vs the 500 which does not have this feature but brushes just as good. In the end, I would save some money and I would recommend the PRO 500.

    This toothbrush paid it self off after my first visit with dentist after using it. I was visiting dentist for cleaning every 4 months even with trying different methods of brushing, rinsing, cleaning, etc. They tried to sell me one of their expensive rotary toothbrushes with timer that cost 4x what I paid for the Oral Care 1000. My last visit I was placed back on 6 month visits and my hygienist was impressed at how clean my teeth were. The charge last about a week, and it alerts you with a flashing light when the battery is about to die. It also alerts you every 30 seconds so that you keep track of how long you been brushing. Nothing fancy about this brush but gets the job done. Very happy with this purchase.

    Good Electric Toothbrush

    I always wanted an electric toothbrush so I bought this one and I am pretty pleased with it. I like that the brush head is interchangeable that way me and my girlfriend are both able to use it and we just each have our own brush head to use. You can also get different kinds of brush heads for it which is nice. The battery lasts very long, I usually only have to charge it about once every week and that is with 2 people using it every day. The built-in timer is also nice to let you know when you've brushed long enough. Only down-side to this product is that the replacement brush heads are a little pricey, $20 for 3 extra heads which seems a little steep to me but other than that it's a great brush!

    The ONLY Way to Brush the Teeth

    I love this Oral-B electric tooth brush. It is easy to use. I really like how it gives a pulse signal every 30-seconds to tell you when it is time to switch to another area of the mouth. It is great how you can keep it on it's charger to keep it at full charge, and not overcharge the battery; or, you can leave off the charger until it indicates you need to charge it. Using this tooth brush has inspired to be more conscientious about brushing. Oh, sure, there are other models out there that are more elaborate, but this one is a great value at this price.

    I have been using this style electric toothbrush for several years. It is the perfect size and shape to get into all areas easily. The rechargeable battery lasts for many years. However, I don't leave it on the charger at all times. I let mine go all the way dead before charging. I think that's why they last so long for me. Replaced the last one after 10 years of use. It still held a charge long enough to use it twice. The replacement brushes are easy to find and inexpensive.

    I love this brush. Teeth feel clean. I have previously used the Sonic for 3 years. That was a good product also. I gave this a 4 star for 2 reasons. First, the brush is medium. Most dentists say to use soft. So, if you are used to soft, this brush may feel hard. Easy to get used to. Next, this brush is noisy. Not a bad thing, but I did have to increase the volume on my radio. :-) Good stuff: charges fast. Charges last more than 5 days. Easy to clean.

    This toothbrush was so far the best we have ever had. We have used oscillating types with flat heads that seems to flair too soon and require more frequent and expensive replacements compared to this brush. The head stays firm and really cleans in a smaller design that helps you get all the way around your mouth in hard to reach places. My teeth are cleaner and the brushing seems to go faster which is always more enjoyable. So good I got one for my teen son for his bday and he said “yeah!”

    Replaced My Old Electric Oral B

    My previous Oral B quit working after 12 years. Was surprised it lasted so long! Liked it and the job it did so much I replaced with the same model as it does a great job of cleaning my teeth. The few days I was without my electric toothbrush, using an Oral B non electric toothbrush, could not believe how unsatisfactory the difference is. Considered getting a toothbrush with a few more options but frankly could not see any reason to do so when this toothbrush is straightforward and does a great job.

    This toothbrush was purchased for our young daughter who kept going through the cheap battery-powered character toothbrushes. This is not too big for her tiny teeth and it really sweeps her teeth clean. If angled correctly, It even gets plaque that tries hiding in gumline. I originally had purchased for her a Sonicare toothbrush and exchanged it for this model as I felt the oscillating head of the Oral-B was much more efficient. I also have a Professinal Oral-B power toothbrush (it still works!) that I've had for about 10 years and I LOVE it! This brand is awesome!

    My dentist recommended that I start using an electric toothbrush last year, but it was difficult to discern how much to spend given the wide range of options and prices. I decided on this toothbrush after reading many reviews and researching available options. I am very satisfied with my purchase! After six months of use, my dental hygienist noted significant improvement in my gum and oral health. It was well worth the investment to me, given the prevention it is providing!

    Purchased this toothbrush after my prior electric brush would not charge. Initial charge took some time but after that, I just plug it in every other day or every two days and charge during the day. Brush heads are standard Oral B heads and fit perfectly. While brushing you can hear when a time period is complete and you can go to another area in the mouth. Recommended for those who want an electric toothbrush that is easy to use and inexpensive to buy.

    Works good but it’s no white and blue

    Mostly this review gets 3* because it wasn’t the write color. It works great as expected but when I opened the package it was just plain white. I drove to another store that was an hour away to replace it for the write color and it turns out all they sell are white ones and not the white and blue ones. It’s some kind of manufacturing issue is what I was told. But overall it’s a great toothbrush.

    I bought my first Oral-B electric toothbrush something like 28 years ago. It's still running (!), but the on/off buttons are a little dodgy, so I broke down and bought this one to replace it. Wow. The head speed seems about three times faster, and while before my teeth felt clean after brushing, with this new one it's like after a visit to the dentist ... without the grit. Love the 30 second/2 minutes timers, too. Only had it a couple days, but I'm very happy with the decision to get an electric toothbrush from this century.

    After using this electric toothbrush for some weeks now my only question is what took me so long! My teeth are noticeably cleaner and brighter. Real easy to use. Toothbrush will sort of pause for a split second to indicate 30 seconds have passed and will do this up to the 2 minute mark. Just plug in the base and charge the battery and you're ready to go. Really good value and so much better than manual brushing. Highly recommend.

    Bought as a replacement

    I bought this to replace a 13+ year old Oral B electric that would not hold a significant charge. My previous only had a 2 minute timer, this one has 30 second timers and then a 2 minute overall timer and so I have to get used to brushing in quadrants. The charging indicator is a bit larger and pulses while charging so I had to turn the toothbrush around so it doesn't pulse the light into my room. I would buy this toothbrush again.
