    I also own an Oral-B Pulsonic and a Philips Sonicare HealthyWhite so I am familiar with and used to using an electric toothbrush. Newcomers will probably have an adjustment period but the transitions isn’t that hard. The Oral-B 3000 is a definite step up from a manual toothbrush and falls between my other two brushes. It is more like a dentist’s cleaning brush than the other two and it employs a purely a physical cleaning methodology while the other two brushes rely on sonic technology. The 3000 is a bit more effective than the Pulsonic but the latter is more of a travel toothbrush. Comparatively, the Pulsonic is weaker and the user is instructed to brush as well as let the sonic action take place. The Philips Sonicare HealthyWhite is more powerful than either and the user is just supposed to move it over the surface of the teeth rather than exert force when brushing. I find it to be the most effective.

    The Oral-B 3000 is a good brush and it gets my teeth “squeaky clean”. It has good power and a lot of movement of the bristles on the head. If you prefer a longer bristled head as opposed to a round one, then this brush is not for you. But it is very effective in any case. You have to apply more pressure and move the brush more than with a pure sonic brush, but it works. There are 3 cleaning mode and I find the first to be the best. The second is a “gentle” cycle and the third oscillates between slow and fast. Every 30 seconds you get a remind to clean a different tooth area and at two minutes you get a 3 pulse reminder that you’ve done enough brushing. Battery life is good and the brush comes with an initial charge to let you brush once before having to re-charge. The base is rather large with a section for 4 brush heads so it takes up a bit of space on your countertop. The overall brush design is decent but middle of the road quality-wise. It feels more plasticy than my other two electric toothbrushes. The contrasty blue and white colors seem more suited to a kid’s brush, as does the red light that flashes when you press too hard. A neat feature I suppose, if a bit gimmicky.

    I like the Oral-B 3000 but at its current price point think there may be better options. You could do worse, but you could also do better.

    Update: 09/03/2010 – This has become my go-to brush for a good clean. I like my sonic ones, but this one is more “fun”, though that is hard to quantify. And it does a good job of cleaning. The charge lasts a while too. Some other things I’ve noticed is that it takes more work to clean than my other power brushes. Not terrible, but a bit more time. Also, it is loud. I don’t find it annoying, but if you don’t want to wake someone in the next room while doing your teeth, you probably will want to close the bathroom door.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    I have been an Oral-B electric toothbrush user for the last 15 years. I have written Amazon reviews for Oral-B products dating back to 2002. I have had very few dental issues in this time although, in fairness, I must also report that I began daily flossing during this time as well, and that may be just as important.

    This new model is a definite step up from the ancient “Plak Control Plus” model that I had been using. It’s full name is “Professional Care 3000″ and it definitely feels and sounds like a professional dental instrument. The head oscillates at a much higher rate than my old one. Please note that this is not an ultrasonic toothbrush. Cleaning is accomplished here purely by mechanical brushing action. The small, rotating brush head and slender handle allow you to get at and clean each surface of each tooth very quickly.

    The 3000 offers three modes of operation which are available by successive presses of the on/off button. The first is “Daily Clean” which is what you are most likely to use on a regular basis. The second is “Sensitive” which reduces the head speed for sensitive areas or for those with sensitive teeth. The third is “Whitening” which is an odd repetitive increase/decrease of speed for “Exceptional whitening for occasional or everyday use.”

    The instructions that come with the 3000 recommend that you brush for 2 minutes – no less and no more. To assist you with this, once you turn the brush on it will pulse twice every 30 seconds. If you use each interval to clean one quadrant of your mouth, you’ll be done in the recommended 2 minutes at which time the brush will pulse 4 times. To turn the brush off from any mode, just press and hold the on/off button.

    Built into the 3000 is a “Hard Brushing Alert” which is an LED on the handle that lights up if you are pressing too hard. Brushing is most effective when the brush is pressed lightly against the teeth. Pressing too hard not only is less effective but will cause your brush heads to break down too quickly. The instructions say that the LED is, “Helping protect your teeth and gums from hard brushing,” so apparently there’s a dental health issue here as well. The brush is very powerful, so it’s not difficult to see how too much pressure would be destructive to the surfaces of your teeth.

    The brush comes with a charging stand and covered storage tray that can accommodate 4 brush heads. The storage tray is dishwasher-safe, the charging stand is not.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    I have used Oral-B electric toothbrush for over 10 years. At a first glance, not much has changed. Other than orange pressure and improved battery/charging indicators, it feels and looks largely the same as predecessors.

    This new 3000 series packaging replaces older Oral-B Professional Care Deluxe Electric Toothbrush - with improved charging base design, which lies flat, easier to clean, and sturdier to boot. This newly designed base may slow down yucky mildew developing on the bottom of the base, but I suspect mildews will still develop around the brush mount.

    My wife has Oral-B Professional Care SmartSeries 5000 Rechargeable Toothbrush, which oddly enough, costs about the same.

    My findings after using it for 2 weeks:

    - The battery needed charging after 10 days. Pretty impressive. Unfortunately, it seems to take forever to charge. Green charging indicator light is still blinking after overnight charging. I solely miss 5000’s battery life indicator.
    - Oral-B claims it will naturally whitens teeth in 3 weeks. I drink coffee daily and I have a week to go, and my teeth aren’t any whiter.
    - My teeth feels great and clean though.
    - Compared to my 3-year old Oral-B, there’s significantly more vibration and strength (the company claims 40,000 pulsations and 8,800 oscillation per minute).
    - Brushing mode is triggered by a single button. I prefer more distinct toggle switch with 4 positions (off, daily clean, sensitive, and polish).
    - 5000 has a “deep clean” mode that is rated to remove up to 99.7% of the plaque (compared to 3000’s “daily clean” mode that can remove up to 97%).
    - Orange pressure indicator does light up if I put too much pressure against my teeth. But the indicator isn’t always obvious. I would prefer audio feedback or 5000’s separate wireless indicator unit.
    - The build quality seems have degraded over the years. My last Oral-B died after 9 months, needing a battery replacement. Ever since then, it just felt clunkier. This new model remains to be seen, but it doesn’t seem any sturdier. Thankfully, included is 2-year warranty.
    - 3000 is designed for kids and adults 4 years or older. Just for some kicks, I have tried it briefly on my 21 week son. It’s too big and he didn’t like it at all.

    Included in the package is just 1 precision clean brush, which is fairly effective at brushing hard to reach places. Oral-B sells several other brushes, such as pro white (for better polish) and floss action. The base can hold 4 brushes.

    In the end, 3000 is a great brush, as great as its predecessors were. But it is expensive, about the same as 5000 that has additional brush cleaning mode and better indicators (with wireless unit to boot).
