Oral-B electric toothbrushes are one of the most famous and most recognized toothbrushes in the world. After the creation of their first toothbrush, called the Hutson toothbrush, in 1950, the company expanded its offer, and in 2016 became a part of P&G international company.
Since their offer is huge, it is important to choose the best electric toothbrush for your needs. Read the full review to find out the main advantages and disadvantages of Oral-B Pro 2000 and Oral-B Pro 3000 electric toothbrushes.
2 Cleaning modes are included with both Oral-B 2000 Pro and Oral-B 3000 Pro toothbrushes models. For everyday gum and teeth cleaning it is recommended to use the Daily Clean mode. If your gums are sensitive and you feel too much pressure, you can easily switch to Sensitive brushing mode. No matter which mode you choose, the company guarantees that it will remove all the surface stains from day 1 and that your gums and teeth will be healthier within 30 days compared to the manual toothbrush.
Movement Cleaning System
To clean and protect your teeth from each side, as well as from the back and front, you need to pay attention to the movement cleaning system. Compared to the manual toothbrush which has only one direction when brushing, Oral-B Pro 2000, and Oral-B Pro 3000 have advanced technology – round head contours movement cleaning system. This way your teeth are protected from each side and deep between the teeth, where it is usually unreachable.
Somehow your brush usually ends up with torn brush tips and you wonder how you can prevent this from happening? The Pressure sensor is the answer. Pressing too hard on your teeth and gums will most likely cause pain and gum injury. The Pressure sensor feature is located just below the brush head and it is visible due to its red color when alerts. Both models have this feature, and it is especially useful and protective because it will alert you if or when you are pressing too much on your teeth and gums.
The Timer feature is usually synced with the Quadpacer feature (read below for more information). Did you know that if you brush your teeth longer than recommended it can cause injury? At the same time, many people think that brushing your teeth and gums longer (let us say 5 minutes) will result in better protection. The myth is busted. The best recommended time for brushing your teeth and gums is around 2 minutes. The Timer feature, included in both models, will alarm you after 2 minutes by chaining its color to red.
Every side counts.
Quadpacer is an integral part of the toothbrush timer and it will inform you with a sound alert when is the right time to brush another side. This way you will cover each side of your teeth and gums and never miss to maintain oral hygiene with complete protection. Oral-B Pro 2000 and Oral-B Pro 3000 have this feature included.
Oral-B Cross Action 2000 and 3000 electric toothbrushes are compatible with the whole collection of Oral-B rechargeable electric toothbrush handles. The only exception is Oral-B Pulsonic toothbrushes. The number of brushes included in the package is different between these two models.
With Oral-B Pro 2000 you will get 1 brush head included, while 2 brush heads will be included if you choose the Oral-B Pro 3000 model. With the Pro 3000 model, you can choose between two different pairs of brush heads: CrossAction and 3D White brush or CrossAction and Sensi UltraThin brush head. A big plus!
The lithium-Ion battery is designed to last more than 2 weeks after the full charge. Both models have the same battery feature and that is the way they are travel friendly. You can bring them with you while you travel and not worry about low battery mode.
Oral-B tends to have a simple and sophisticated toothbrush design. All the above-mentioned sensors are visible, and features are easy to set up. The main difference between these two models is the available handle colors. Oral-B Pro 2000 is available in blue, pink, and white colors. Blue and white handle color is available with the Oral-B Pro 3000 model which also comes with a suitable travel case.
If we talk about the price differences between these two models, there is a slight difference, and it will vary between different retailers. For example, Oral-B Pro 2000 can be purchased from $35 and up to $80, while Oral-B Pro 3000 will have the price range from $50 and up to $100. Because the Oral-B Pro 3000 comes with a travel case and 2 head brushes, it is understandable that the price will go a little bit higher.
When talking about the technical features these two models have, there are no differences that will affect your oral hygiene. Two brushing modes: Daily Clean and Sensitive will be a great option for many users. Pressure sensor and long battery life are incredibly good practical features. Not all electric toothbrushes have a Li-Ion battery that can last more than 2 weeks, you will more likely see the average time around 7 days for battery life.
Because brush heads can be more expensive if purchased separately, the higher price on the Oral-B Pro 3000 toothbrush is maybe a better choice when talking about the practical side. Dentist experts recommend changing the brush head every 3 months, so with this purchase, you will not have to worry for at least 6 months in a row.
A 2-year warranty is included in both models and water-resistant feature. Keep in mind that you have to remove it from the battery stand before contact with water.
