The Oral-B® ProfessionalCare® 1000 toothbrush packs a powerful punch in a small, rechargeable package. I love this toothbrush. More importantly, my husband loves it. This has some weight. Mr. Bargains is a very shrewd consumer when it comes to dental care and he is all business. He doesn’t mess around with anything relating to his teeth or oral care. So a thumbs up from him really has an impact on my view of things, too.
The brush heads on these toothbrushes are a small size- which I wasn’t sure I’d be a fan of, but having used this for several weeks, I’m sold. I love the small, round brushes, I think the bristles are soft enough to be gentle to the gums but strong enough to give a good clean. The pulsating reminders that you are either brushing too hard (the pulsating stops) or need to change to a new section of your mouth are great for those of us who are brushing while doing 25 other tasks in the morning and don’t always remember to do that.
The toothbrush itself comes with a very small charging station- which comes in extra handy in our holy-moly-we-need-a-bigger-bathroom full bathroom…small charging station means valuable counter space is not compromised by toothbrush chargers. We each have our own, too. They charge side by side, like little dental soldiers waiting for battle.
ProfessionalCare 1000 provides dentist-inspired cupping action in which a unique, round brush head surrounds each tooth for a tooth-by-tooth clean.
- Removes up to 97% of plaque from hard-to-reach areas*
- Helps prevent and reverse gingivitis

- 1 mode: Daily Clean
- Oral-B is the #1 dentist-recommended toothbrush brand worldwide
There’s a rebate available on the Oral-B site, but it won’t last long, so be sure to print it out ASAP. Each of the toothbrushes we received, and my friends I have asked who also own an Oral-B toothbrush, all come with money saving coupons inside for brush heads. I love that Oral-B remembers little details like that!!
The Oral-B® ProfessionalCare ® 1000 toothbrushes retail at about $74.99. This is an expense to incur when you first purchase the product, but the benefits far outweigh the cost, and your brush itself will last you for a very long time- using coupons to save on the brush refills helps to further your savings. You only get one set of adult teeth, and it’s important to take extra good care of them. If they’d just make a kids’ version of this, I’d be very happy!! (Hint, hint, Oral-B!)
One more thing- if you (like me) often brush your teeth whilst chatting on the phone– that won’t happen anymore. This is a power toothbrush, remember. It’s not super loud, but it also isn’t conducive to a phone chat.
I received a sample of this product to facilitate my review. Opinions are my own.
