This model is an mprovement over the prior model and does a great job. It falls short on the following.

1. The soft travel case has been replaced by a flimsy hard case. A dumb decision that should be corrected.

2. The wall mounted Smart Guide is a good idea but not executed properly. It is difficult to see at certain angles which could be improved with a swivel mount. In addition back lighting would be helpful since it is too difficult to read in dim light. Also the Smart Guide eliminated the same information being displayed on the handle. While a duplication, it should display the same information as opposed to the useless battery indicator.

Just an FYI. I bought this new pro series, which came with the floss brush. I bought a set of replacement brushes, too. My teeth started to ache BADLY every day. I have sensitive teeth anyway and thought they were just getting worse. I used the sensitive brush once a day and the floss head once a day. Then I realized that they got a lot worse after using the floss brush. I stopped using it and the pain went away. I want to caution people about that head. The pain was REALLY bad!

This is a terrific brush, but it is connected to a clock that "reads" the brush. The clock tells you what setting you have the brush set for, how long you've been brushing, what quarter of your mouth you should be brushing, and if you're using too much pressure. The problem with that is, when the "clock" gets broken, you can' tell what setting you're on, and the other features are gone also, making it a normal, gimmick free, but extremely expensive, electric brush.

So why my rating? Within the first month of my purchase, the clock fell off the edge of my bathroom counter and was damaged. I figured, Bruan is a good company. They stand behind their products. They made a flimsy, easily damaged clock, they'll replace it. Not so! I can BUY a replacement clock for another $40! Are you kidding me? This is the world's most expensive gimmick brush.

I went to the site to see what the final cost would be, and they're out of stock! Seems lots of people must be buying these replacement clocks!

Buy a cheaper brush! This one is definitely not worth the price, especially with such a delicate clock, and a company that doesn't stand behind it.

              Comments about Oral-B Professional Care SmartSeries 5000, Power Toothbrush, 1 ea:

              I bought this to upgrade from my eight year old Oral-B Vitality power toothbrush. I was mainly hoping for a more gentle, yet effective cleaning (though I must say, the Vitality has performed flawlessly up to date). I was particularly looking forward to having a pressure sensor and a sensitive mode but also appreciated the fact that this device includes a timer. The rest was pretty much just a bonus, that I didn´t expect to use much but didn´t mind having, either (especially given the great price, drugstore.com offered it for).

              I have been using this device for a little over 6 month now, and I am absolutely happy with my purchase. It is indeed more powerful than my previous toothbrush and in that way, together with the sensor, it helps me to ease up on the pressure while still having this clean, smooth feeling after brushing. My teeth have even gotten less sensitive thanks to this device!

              As predicted, I mostly use the regular and sensitive settings for daly cleaning, but I have used the other three modes from time to time and actually appreciate now having them.

              The timer with smart guide is a nice gimmick. I imagine the smily face is a good motivator for kids. I personally find it a bit unnecessary, that the toothbrush stops every 30 seconds. The signal and the screen would be enough, in my opinion. But then again, you might not always bring your smart guide on travels and sometimes, if it is a bit louder around me (like if I am in a hotel room with a noisy a.c.) I do not actually hear the peep of the brush. So I guess there is a sense in this.

              This device comes with a pretty large attachment to store extra brush heads. While I imagine this is nice for a family, I opted to remove it and have more space on my counter instead. Without that container, the charger is actually half the size of that from my old Vitality.
              The battery holds up pretty long compared to my old toothbrush, the brush handle is a bit heavier though, than my old one. So far I have only taken it on an eight day trip without charging and the battery showed one of three bars still charged, when I came back. It also comes with a very handy travel case that easily fits two brush heads.

              When I first took the device out of the package I was a little disappointed with the brush handle. More precise with the silver part that is basically plastic with paint. I expected better at this price point. It does not look very sturdy and I expected it to start chipping pretty soon. So far it held up well, but it has only been half a year.

              I found, brush and smart guide are easy to handle. Prior to buying, I read some reviews, stating that the manual was confusing and the clock in the smart guide was hard to set. Quite frankly I can´t see why. I found it rather easy to handle. The only thing that might be good to know, is that the smart guide is set to a demonstration mode when it arrives. It blinks and changes screens in frequent intervals. Taking it out of the package I first thought it had been damaged during the transport before I realized what was actually going on. There are two sets of batteries included for the smart guide. One in the device and a a second, spare one. I had to change the first set after about three month, which I think isn´t bad, considering it was running the demo mode since it left the manufacturer.

              As for the brush head that comes with it, I am not an overly big fan. Over the years I have tried several different Oral-B replacement heads and I found those for sensitive teeth and gums to work best for me with this model of toothbrush. The brush has enough power on its own and cleans teeth very well. I even think it removes stains pretty well. I am a devoted coffee and tea lover and this brush with the soft bristles does a really good job keeping coffee stains off my teeth. With my older model I liked to use the pro white brush heads every now and then to get rid of some stains but I found those and other rougher brush heads to be too much for my sensitive teeth with the SmartSeries. If you really want to go deeper, that is what the deep clean and polish modes are for.

                Oral-B Professional Care SmartSeries 5000 Power Toothbrush

                 – Achieve professional-level cleaning and dramatically improved gum health with the Oral-B Professional Care SmartSeries 5000 Power Toothbrush. With 5 cleaning modes, professional timer and a wireless SmartGuide real-time feedback unit that helps guide your brushing session (including a hard brushing alert), it’s like having your own personal oral health coach every time you brush! Unlike brushes that just vibrate, Oral-B’s Professional Care SmartSeries 5000 uses clinically proven pulsating technology to break up plaque, plus an oscillating and rotating action to sweep the particles away. This provides 50% more brush movement than is provided with the leading sonic technology. It’s no wonder that Oral-B is the #1 dentist-recommended toothbrush brand, worldwide.

                This tooth-brushing and gum care system has five cleaning modes: Daily Cleaning, Deep Clean, Sensitive, Whitening and Massage. Choose the setting for your personal needs, and change as often as you want. You can also select from the many styles of Oral-B refill heads to meet your tooth care requirements, from Sensitive Gum Care to Interproximal Clean. While it doesn’t replace flossing, the dentist-inspired FlossAction brush head loosens plaque in between teeth. Based on single-use brushing studies, the Oral-B Professional Care SmartSeries 5000 tooth brush has been shown to remove up to 99.7% of plaque in hard-to-reach areas when used in Deep Clean mode. While you brush, the professional timer helps guide you to provide the full 30 seconds of care for each of the 4 quadrants of your teeth.

                Mounted inside the waterproof ergonomic handle is a charge level display, so you can make sure that you’re ready to go, every time. The portable charging station keeps the battery charged for a 2-minute brushing session twice a day, with up to a 10-day battery life between charges. The SmartSeries technology also helps you time your sessions and warns you when you’re brushing too hard, to help treat your teeth and gums with care. The indicator bristles also let you know when it’s time to replace the brush head: When the bristles fade, it’s time to change!

                Each set comes with a handle, charger, SmartGuide and a Floss Action refill brush head. The refill stand, also included, allows you to keep a selection of different brush heads for your individual needs during your brushing session. To help you take your Oral-B brush with you when you’re on the go, a handy travel case is also provided. Brushing has never been so easy – or so effective!
