There’s been a new power appliance in the Bean household for the last week or so. We’ve been trying out the Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 power toothbrush with SmartGuide. Honestly I’ve always looked at power toothbrushes and thought, “Really? We’ve become too lazy to even make the effort of moving our hands up and down to brush our teeth?” So, I’ve never really thought about getting one. Was curious about them, but was never going to get one.
All that may have changed. After receiving this power toothbrush by participating in a blog tour through Dad Central Consulting, my family has immediately jumped onto the power toothbrush band-wagon. We purchased an additional 3 tooth brush heads so all of us have our own and we’ve all begun using it on a regular basis.
I’m a little weird I guess. I’ve never had bad dental hygeine habits but I’ve never been over the top about it either. I don’t mind at all going to the dentist, but don’t go on a regular basis. In fact, it may have been over a decade now since I’ve gone to the dentist. I also drink a LOT of coffee on a daily basis, so I do know I have some staining issues on my bottom teeth because of that. I’m hoping through use of this Oral-B power toothbrush, I’ll be able to power through some of those stains.
As I said, my family is already all gung-ho about using it. My daughter just finished and the SmartGuide feature makes sure they brush longer than they have been recently. I do want my kids to worry about their teeth a little more than I have been as a child, young adult and adult.
If you’d like to go ahead and join me in the adventure and have been debating on getting a power toothbrush to replace that old analog version, Oral-B is offering a $10 mail-in rebate on select power toothbrushes now through June 16, 2012. Just visit their website at www.OralB.com for more details. You can also follow them on Twitter @OralB and like them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/OralB
Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Dad Central Consulting on behalf of Oral-B and received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
