About the Product
The Oral-B PRO 1000 rechargeable electric toothbrush provides a clinically proven superior clean vs. a regular manual toothbrush. The professionally inspired design of the CrossAction brush head surrounds each tooth with bristles angled at 16 degrees, and 3D cleaning action oscillates, rotates, and pulsates to break up and remove up to 300% more plaque along the gumline vs. a regular manual toothbrush. The pressure sensor stops the pulsation movement if you brush too hard and there is 1 mode, plus an in-handle timer to help you brush for a dentist-recommended 2 minutes. Best of all, it’s brought to you by Oral-B – the #1 brand used by dentists worldwide*.
Your Philips Sonicare Electric Toothbrush is safe to use on: braces (brush heads wear out sooner when used on braces), dental restorations (fillings, crowns, veneers) and periodontal pockets.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Oral-B Pro 1000 Power Rechargeable Toothbrush
  • The round rotating brush cleans along the gums better.
  • Cleans my teeth really well, quickly, easy to rotate around the mouth.
  • Rotation oh head cleans better than any other toothbrush I have ever used. Just like going to the dentist.
  • The head speed seems to be about three times what the old one was. My teeth feel even cleaner now than before, which doesn't seem possible.
  • It doesn't seem to have as much power as the higher priced model we own, and it doesn't have two speeds, but it seems to clean pretty well, and it's operating fine.
Philips Sonicare Essence (HX5611/01) Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush
  • Great toothbrush for a beginner sonic care toothbrush.
  • This is a great product my whole family uses the Sonic tooth brushes.
  • It also has a speed jolt to tell you when your two minutes of brushing is up. I love the vibrations of this toothbrush.
  • It has one speed and the charged base is very compact.
  • It did take me a little while to get used to it because the vibration is pretty intense at first and there are no speed settings on this model.

What customers say about "Details"
Oral-B Pro 1000 Power Rechargeable Toothbrush
  • The timer is good even though I don't usually pay any attention to it. Powerful with just the right amount of power.
  • The toothbrush has a 30 second timer to make sure one spends the right amount of time per quadrant.
  • The built-in timer is also nice to let you know when you've brushed long enough.
  • I also like that fact that it has light indicators to let you know if it needs charging; even when it does blink red, there is no sign that it is getting weak which is a plus. Functions as it should.
  • It does the job of cleaning you teeth with little effort and the vibration timing helps you complete the cleaning.
  • The charging indicator is a bit larger and pulses while charging so I had to turn the toothbrush around so it doesn't pulse the light into my room. I would buy this toothbrush again.
  • This was a great toothbrush for the price my only complaint is the vibration is loud.
Philips Sonicare Essence (HX5611/01) Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush
  • This model doesn't have the timer like most models. I like the larger toothbrush head.
  • The timer feature is very nice and lets you know you have done a complete cleaning.
  • Great toothbrush I really like the vibration it has.
  • It has a 2 minute timer that takes a little bit of getting used to but otherwise I highly recommend it.
  • he charging LED indicator keeps flashing even though it was charged over night. The battery seems to hold the charge though.
  • The battery indicator is super minimal and this brush pretty much asks to be charged all day, every day because of the lack of a battery meter. But so far, it works just fine and totally serves the purpose.
