How will this toothbrush keep my teeth cleaner and healthier?
The Oral-B 5000 uses a 2-minute timer, so you’ll know that you’ve cleaned your teeth for the right amount of time, as recommended by dentists. It also features a pressure sensor, which keeps you from putting too much pressure on your teeth and gums as you brush, helping to keep them healthy as you clean. This toothbrush has 5 different brushing modes, including sensitive, whitening, and gum care, so you can give your teeth the care they need to be clean and healthy.
Why is keeping your teeth clean so important?
A thorough dental care routine which includes 2 minutes of brushing twice a day is essential to keep your teeth clean and healthy. When you clean your teeth, you remove harmful plaque acids which build up on your teeth throughout the day. When these plaque acids are given the right environment, they can damage your teeth and gums, causing tooth decay and gum disease.
Should I use an electric or a manual toothbrush?
Although many people are happy with their manual toothbrush, more and more people are choosing to switch to electric toothbrushes. This is because of the extra features electric toothbrushes offer that manual brushes just don’t have. For example, the 2-minute timer which helps you to brush your teeth for the dentist-recommended time. Some electric toothbrushes also feature pressure sensors and different brushing modes so you can get the best possible clean for your teeth.

How often should I change my electric toothbrush head?
Dentists recommend that you should change your electric toothbrush head or your manual toothbrush every 3 months so you can be sure you’re getting the most effective clean possible. As you use your toothbrush over 3 months, the bristles go through natural wear and tear that makes it more difficult to clean your teeth effectively. This is why you’ll need to keep an eye on your toothbrush and when it needs replacing.
Can I replace the battery in this model?
No, you cannot replace the battery in your Oral-B electric toothbrush. The battery is contained within the electronics of the toothbrush handle and the unit is then sealed to keep it water tight
