  • any major difference between these and the ones that cost ~30 (on special) in terms of effectiveness of teeth cleanliness/ plaque removal

    • Battery life

    • +4

      No. Any model with a number 1000 or higher has the better motor that is more effective in plaque removal.

      • thats interesting

        from the website

        Vitality: Removes up to 100% more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush

        Smart: Up to 100% more plaque removal vs a regular manual toothbrush​

        which to me is effectively the same

        But I could not find any comparison between the two wrt plaque removal

        wish they had posted that info in an easy to find format

        • Yeah it’s not easy to find but there is a table of comparison somewhere that shows the difference number of oscillations between models.

      • my understanding was that series 5000-9000 use the same motor.

    • +3

      Yes major differences, 2D vs 3D cleaning actions, 30 second timer, pressure sensor, faster motors.

      Lots of good info and reviews on this website https://www.electricteeth.com/au/oral-b-electric-toothbrush-...

        from the website you recommended

        As you move up the Oral-B range, the brushes become more expensive, but they do come with additional features and accessories. We regard these as “nice-to-have” rather than essential. Spending more or picking a premium model does not necessarily result in a better clean of the teeth

        • And yet they recommend a 2000 model, not some cheap one found at Coles/Woolies.

    These Oral B toothbrush specials come around like clockwork. Buy it only when you need it.

    Recently bought the basic one on special at WW for $22.5. if teeth cleaning and plaque removal are similar then I don't think the extended battery life and other features are worth over a $100. YMMV

    • non lithium battery. Needs charging every other day.

        better than my cell phone that needs charging every day :)

        • If you used your toothbrush as much as your mobile, you'd be charging your toothbrush every hour

  • If you’re buying as a couple, just get one of these on special and then use different heads for each person. Really don’t see the point in having two units such a waste

    • My thoughts exactly.

      In less wealthy countries these are sold with charging bases that can also store multiple heads for the whole family. Makes more sense.

      The suggestion that each fam member has to have their own motor is just to make you buy more.

      So you have to swap the head each time you use it?


      • That's one silly reason to start lmfao.

  • The page shows still $159.98….

    • Costco instore only. Thanks for reminding. I have changed the title to make this post precisely.

  • Now, where can I get the heads for cheap

    • Costco when on sale, every 3 months historically
