Oral-B Pro 2500 Review

Are you a manual toothbrush or an electric toothbrush person? Many dentists recommend, like those from http://www.tallydentalpros.com/, for example, recommend electric toothbrushes over manual toothbrushes, as the constant rotating heads are thought to remove more plaque than a manual toothbrush. This makes an electric toothbrush ideal for teeth cleaning, gum and mouth health too.  But as there are so many different brands out there and different heads it can be confusing as to which one to choose. 

I've used both Oral B and Phillips toothbrushes in the past and must say both these brands offer excellent electric toothbrushes. I must admit, I am an electric toothbrush convert, I feel they do make my teeth cleaner, my mouth fresher and my teeth even that little bit whiter.
The other day I was sent an Oral B 2500 toothbrush to review from Pure Smiles. Pure Smiles is a dental practice in Fulham, West London that specialises in teeth whitening and Invisalign treatments. The dentists and dental practitioners there really know the benefits of an effective electric toothbrush in preventing dental decay. As this model of toothbrush is recommended by them I was interested to see how good it was. 

What's in the box?

First impressions of the Oral-B Pro 2500 was that it looked great being produced in a black colour way. If you want something more girly then the toothbrush also comes in pink for another option. My husband immediately wanted it for himself so this review is in conjunction with him!

In the box, there is the toothbrush, a two pin charger, a cross-action toothbrush head and instructions. The cross-action brush head has angled bristles for a precise clean.  A useful feature for travellers like me is that it has a travel case included. 

The Oral-B Pro 2500 toothbrush is compatible with Oral-B brush heads including:-

  • Floss action
  • 3D white
  • Sensitive clean
  • Trizone

Special features

Now one of the best features of this toothbrush is the pressure sensor. This lights up if you are brushing too hard. Brushing too hard can cause abrasion of the enamel and gum tissue and ultimately tooth sensitivity so having a pressure sensor is a great feature.

The other feature which is incredibly useful is the timer. Dentists recommend you brush your teeth for two minutes, but how many of us do this? With the timer, every 30 seconds it pulses. This is a reminder for you to brush all four quadrants of your mouth. At the end of 2 minutes, the toothbrush has a longer pulsing action to remind you that you can stop brushing now.

My thoughts

The Oral-B Pro 2500 toothbrush is a great toothbrush. The black design of the toothbrush is stylish, the waterproof soft coated handle is comfortable to use and it looks great in my bathroom. The timer is an excellent idea, and the fact that it pulses every 30 seconds ensures you focus on each quarter of your mouth at any time. I never really thought about the fact that you can brush your teeth too hard before, but the built-in pressure sensor is a super idea. 

Charging is easy, however, you need a two-way adapter plug which is the same as a shaver plug to charge and this is not included. Many worldwide hotels have this type of socket in hotel bathrooms, so you can just plug it in there to charge if you are on holiday. The charger light glows green when charging. Once the toothbrush is charged it lasts up to 7 days. 

The Oral-B Pro 2500 has a two-year warranty and the Oral-B 30 day challenge satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. Full details of this are at Oral-B. With prices online around £34.95, both my husband and I think this toothbrush is great value and we would both definitely recommend it. 


  1. What an interesting sounding toothbrush I have to admit I do need to think about a new electric toothbrush perhaps this is the one.

  2. I have an OralB electric toothbrush and I love it!

  3. I've never tried an electric toothbrush, although I've heard great things about them and Oral B is probably the brand I'd go for it I did. This one is a great price. Mich x

  4. I really need to update my electric toothbrush its seen better days. Im really liking the look and sound of this one though :) sounds like a great investment as well

  5. I actually want to get an electric toothbrush. This one seems really good value for money as some are so expensive x
