What experts liked
It has five cleaning modes and a visible brushing pressure sensor that lights up if you’re brushing too hard.
- Top Ten Reviews
When it comes to brush heads, Oral-B offers more choice than any other electric toothbrush brand. From gentle brush heads designed just for sensitive gums to larger brush heads that imitate the brushing motion of a manual toothbrush, there is something for everyone.

The Wireless SmartGuide and QuickGuide manuals are always a nice touch. It doesn’t take a genius to work out how to use a toothbrush, but it does not hurt to have a manual handy.
- Dental Dorks
There are six types of brush heads for various needs.

This brush does have a pressure sensor to alert you if you are pressing too hard, attempting to prevent the damages associated with over-brushing.
- Tech Gear Lab
The Pro 5000 has the ability to sense pressure, and will let up on the brush and your connected smartphone if you’re brushing too hard.
- ratingle

What experts didn't like
It’s difficult to switch between cleaning modes, and the motor sounds like a power drill.
- Top Ten Reviews
Unfortunately, this was just a little to tall to stand upright on the shelf of my medicine cabinet. Instead, I had to lay the electric toothbrush on my side, which isn’t my preference.
- Moo Review

We also thought that the “one button for everything” was a bit silly. It’s a long slim brush with plenty of room for multiple buttons, so we don’t need to stand there pressing the single button until it turns off. Perhaps this is why the battery runs out so quickly.
- Dental Dorks
Feature that uploads up to 20 brushing sessions doesn't work.
- TechHive

Our testers felt this was one of the least comfortable brushes to hold. They specifically noticed the uneven bulkiness around the handle of the toothbrush and the rubber grip on the front and back, along with a small plastic protrusion at the bottom at main detractors from a nice ergonomic feel.
- Tech Gear Lab
Electric toothbrushes make noise, but the Oral-b makes a lot of noise for some reason. Since you’re brushing (or should be) for 2 minutes, this can get annoying.
- ratingle
One other noticeable difference is the batteries which are NiMH instead of the preferred Li-Ion. This means your batteries will not last as long and you get at most 11 days of life.

The design of the stand requires frequent cleaning from water that drips from the brush heads.

Expensive compared to other toothbrushes.

Bluetooth will not be for everyone.
