|An Oral-B toothbrush with power!|
Now that is one serious looking toothbrush! I have used the "manual" powered toothbrushes and to be quite honest with you, I rarely reached the 2 minute mark of brushing that dentists recommend. I would always give my teeth a good scrubbing for about a good minute or so and be done with it. One really, really bad habit that I had was that I wouldn't floss. I know! I know! I should floss but it was something that I never did as a habit and now as an adult, it's a habit that I just can't seem to incorporate into my morning routine. Hence, the reason why I promised myself to do it more often. It's also why I make sure that the kids take good care of their teeth. I know that those great habits start from a young age and if you don't get them started early, it's going to be tough for them. Just like how it is for me. But now that's all about to change!

"But Metallman, how do you know what mode you're in when there is no display on the toothbrush?"
Good question, my friend. The answer is the SmartGuide. That smart guide is like a little dentist right there to guide you. The brushing modes on the Oral-B 5000 can be switched by pressing the mode button on toothbrush. The SmartGuide will pick up on the change and will display the mode on the screen! How cool is that? Also, there is a circle with 4 quadrants on the SmartGuide to help you brush your teeth. Each quadrant represents a section of your mouth. When you turn on the toothbrush, a quadrant on the SmartGuide will flash. That's the part you should spend your time brushing. AND... it times you! Knowing that you're on the clock, you take your time brushing your teeth so you know that you won't short hand your teeth. With your little dentist advising when it's time to move on to the next section, it's easy to get all your teeth the full scrubbing they deserve and get that 2 minute recommended brushing time. Another great feature of the Oral-B 5000 is that the SmartGuide will let you know when you're brushing too hard. Yup. It's that smart. You see that smile on the SmartGuide? Well... it won't be smiling if you press too hard against your teeth.

Stay tuned, friends. I'll get a video up in the next week or so to give you guys a demonstration of how it works. You'll definitely want to stick around for that. So tell me, what are your brushing habits? Have you used a toothbrush like the Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000? Let's hear it. Later!
