The Oral-B Pro 5000 SmartSeries Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush with Bluetooth Connectivity is the very first of its kind. The smart technology is powered by Bluetooth, enabling users to check their cleaning performance via their smartphones.

The round-headed brush is dentist-inspired, which allows for 3D cleaning performance. The head activates by brushing side to side, rotating and pulsating to break up 100% of plaque.

The toothbrush also features a pressure sensor light, to warn if you are brushing too hard and contains a 2-minute timer, in order to fulfil a reasonable brushing routine.
