As consumers continue to build their holiday wish lists, Oral-B® is encouraging shoppers everywhere to consider providing the gift of a healthier smile to their loved ones this year. Rising to the top of many lists this season is the Oral-B Professional Precision™ 5000 power, or electric toothbrush, which has received outstanding reviews and is giving Americans a reason to make the switch from manual to power when it comes to their toothbrush preference.
Just in time for the holidays, Oral-B partnered with O, The Oprah Magazine to offer 374 O readers the opportunity to try* out the Professional Precision 5000 power toothbrush over a two week period in order to compare and share their experience. Across the board, readers who tried the product were surprised and delighted with the features and cleaning power they found. In fact, four out of five testers** confessed they prefer to use the Oral-B power toothbrush for their brushing routine versus their manual toothbrush and agree that they won’t go back to using their old manual toothbrush again. Further, prior to the survey, almost half of the readers felt they did an excellent or good job brushing their teeth, but after switching to power, the number of readers who felt they did an excellent or good job brushing shot up to 97 percent.
“We are excited to partner with O Magazine and to receive such an overwhelming positive response from users who have fallen in love with the Professional Precision 5000,” said Rishi Dhingra, Marketing Director, Procter and Gamble. “These results reflect what we at Oral-B know to be true - that the Precision 5000 is superior to a regular manual toothbrush and that it makes a great, healthy gift for everyone on your list this season.”
The Oral-B Professional Precision 5000 provides an advanced cleaning technology, with up to 50 percent more brush movements versus the leading sonic technology for superior plaque removal, making it the perfect holiday gift for that friend or family member who wants to invest in his or her oral health. For the ultimate gadget guru, the brush also comes complete with a wireless SmartGuide that helps maximize brushing performance and guides users through the brushing experience during the dental-recommended two minutes.
“My teeth look better and definitely feel better after I started using this power toothbrush,” said O reader Janice from Texas. “I will be purchasing this brush for my family, so they can experience what I do everyday!”
From coast to coast, O readers who used the power toothbrush shared their excitement after using the Oral-B Professional Precision 5000 power toothbrush:
“This toothbrush made my teeth feel dentist clean. I am amazed at the difference between my manual toothbrush and this toothbrush.” - Cindy of Indiana
“I like that it forces you to think about how long you are brushing and provides visual encouragement and direction for cleaning your teeth properly.” - Angela of North Carolina
“I enjoyed the indicator showing me how I am brushing, and how long I am brushing. I love the feeling of my teeth after the brushing, and the movement of the brush.” - Allison of California
“The toothbrush makes my teeth feel professionally cleaned. I am truly pleased with this new product and will never go back to my old toothbrush.” – Shirley of Michigan
