We always want to make a measured start when switching product categories.
So when moving from a manual toothbrush to an electric one, you would want to use something that makes the introduction seamless. The Pro 1000 Black from Oral-B seems to be a case in point here.
It is the most basic electric toothbrush model in the Oral-B Pro Series, has one simple cleaning mode, a durable construction, superior plaque removal ability and a lot of promise.
Let us take a look at what the Pro 1000 is capable of doing. Here is a detailed review.
|Brand name||Braun Oral B|
|Product dimension||4.3 x 2.2 x 10 inches|
|strokes per min||40,000 pulsations and 8,800 oscillations|
|Battery type||NiMH battery|

The Pro 1000 Black from Oral-B comes with a lot of promises upfront. It is capable of removing up to 3 times more plaque from around the gumline when compared to regular manual toothbrushes.
The bristles come with a cross-action, which makes them deadly tools for precise and effective cleaning throughout the mouth.
On your part, you will just have to direct the bristles well and they take care of the rest.
The rotary and oscillatory movements of the head have been clinically proven to remove thrice the plaque from the gumline over a manual toothbrush.
Unlike most electric toothbrushes that come with several cleaning modes, the Pro 1000 has just one mode – daily clean.
Even if this sounds simpleton, there are both positives and negatives of this. For one, the singular mode really cuts the hassles of having to switch among several modes that essentially do the same job of cleaning. On the flip side, we would have liked at least two other modes (most Oral-B brushes have two modes) – sensitive clean and gum care.
The sensitive cleaning mode is now considered a very important mode for any electric toothbrush.
So this will go down as a miss in our books.
There is a 30-second timer on the handle of the brush that beeps once every 30 seconds so you can know it is time to change a quadrant of the mouth.
So this automatically helps you mind all four quadrants of the mouth within the dentist-recommended 2 minutes.
This teams up evenly with the pressure sensor in the toothbrush which tells you if you are brushing too hard.
Plus, the bristles have been precision-honed at an angle of 16°. This angle acts upon the 3D cleaning mechanism of Oral-B to give you neat rotation, oscillation and pulsation throughout the mouth.
The angle of the bristles in the Black Pro 1000 actually goes further than what meets the eye.
For one, the cross action head of the brush has been very professionally done and neatly applied with the angle of he bristles.
With the angle of the bristles, you can actually drive the brush deep in between the teeth and add more power to the bristles to lift and drive away up to 300% more plaque from the mouth and especially from around the gumline.
This facilitates those superior cleaning claims that Oral-B makes with élan. To some extent, the cleaning action also makes up for the lack of additional modes.>>Find here best deals for Oral-B black pro 1000 on Amazon<<
You get 1 Oral-B professional handle, 1 CrossAction Head and a charger in the pack.
Many feel this could have been made better with an additional brush head, like in most brushes by Waterpik.
However, it will be apt to be reminded here that the Pro 1000 is a very durably brush.
So the stock brush head that comes with the brush actually lasts you a quite long.
Along with additional brush heads, there are a few other things that the Pro 1000 does not have.
These include Bluetooth connectivity and additional modes.
But we will have to bear in mind that the Pro 1000 is just an entry level electric toothbrush.
Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the build of the Pro 1000.
As a starting range electric toothbrush, you will simply how impeccably this one has been built.
The handle is well made and offers a firm grip.
You will find no disturbance trying to reach the power button of the toothbrush.
The inductive charging base of the Pro 1000 Black is a lot better compared to more expensive models.
However, Oral-B would do well to cover the wide open charging area right next to the inductive notch.
