The Oral-B 7000 electric toothbrush from their SmartSeries range will appeal to everyone who wants a toothbrush that offers plenty of features and does a great job of getting their teeth clean.
Oral-B 7000 SmartSeries Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
The number of Oral-B products for dental care is extensive and within it, there are certain branded ranges. One of them is the SmartSeries which includes some of their top electric toothbrushes, including the Oral-B 7000. This is within the newer range of toothbrushes that were previously labeled as 'Pro' by Oral-B and include several features that have either been added or enhanced.
This specific toothbrush is powered by a rechargeable battery that is sealed within the unit. Its brush heads are interchangeable so users can brush their teeth with the one most appropriate for them.
Who is this product for?
It can obviously be used by anyone to brush their teeth, although all the additional features and brushing modes may be too much for those who prefer to simply brush their teeth without having to make any decisions.
With the ability to use any of Oral-B’s interchangeable brush heads, this will provide brushing options for those with specific conditions, such as sensitive gums, or who wear braces.
The box which contains your Oral-B toothbrush will also have a number of other items. Obviously, there will be a charger, given that the toothbrush uses a rechargeable battery. There will also be what is called the 'Smartguide,' which is a small wireless interactive LCD display that helps you to operate the toothbrush's functions. Almost as important is the user’s guide, which you need to read before you use the product.
You'll also receive three brush heads which each provide a different type of cleaning. The ‘Cross Action’ brush head is the standard one for normal cleaning. The second is the ‘Sensitive’ brush head with softer bristles and suited to those with sensitive gums. The third is the ‘3D White’ brush which is especially adept at removing surface stains from your teeth in order to help whiten them.
The final item you’ll receive is a handy travel case, which allows you to take your Oral-B 7000 with you whenever you travel away from home.
Overview of features
The Oral-B 7000’s main features are firstly the cleaning options which allow you to use it different ways. The modes are Daily Clean, Deep Clean, Sensitive, Whitening, Massage and Tongue Cleaning. These each alter the intensity of the oscillations and the toothbrush's timer which alerts you to when you have reached the optimum brushing time. Some of these will require specific brush heads to be attached.
There is also a pressure sensor that alerts you when you are applying too much force on the brush head which can potentially cause your gums to bleed.
The toothbrush can also be used in conjunction with Oral-B's app via a Bluetooth connection with your smartphone. This app has features that show your brushing coverage, your brushing habits, plus tips and advice to help you maximize your dental health.
How to use it
The first thing you should do is to fully charge the toothbrush's battery by sitting the unit on the charger base and plugging the charger into a power outlet. Once fully charged, you can then attach whichever brush head you are planning to use. These are removed by pulling them away from the toothbrush and attached by pushing them on until they click into place.
You switch the toothbrush on by pressing the on/off button which is situated at the top of the small control panel. The button below it, with a single chevron, is used to scroll through each of the six cleaning options that were outlined in the features section. Simply press until you have selected the one you want as indicated on the Smartguide display.
If you wish to use your toothbrush in conjunction with the Oral-B app then you need to connect it via Bluetooth to your smartphone or tablet. This is done by activating the Bluetooth search function on your smartphone and looking for 'Oral-B toothbrush' on the device list.

Not everyone will need all the bells and whistles that the Oral-B 7000 comes with, so an alternative Oral-B electric toothbrush, that can just as effectively brush your teeth, is the Oral-B Pro 500 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush.
There's no need to worry about what mode you want or connecting it with apps. All you do is charge it and use it. You still have the very same options in relation to choosing and using which Oral-B brush is most suitable for your teeth and gums.
