Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How does Oral-B’s Oscillating/Rotating technology compare to sonic technology?

It removes 44% more plaque vs. Sonicare FlexCare to provide a superior cleaning. Plus, the design of Oral-B Floss Action, Sensitive, and ProWhite brush heads mimic the round shape of dentists’ cleaning tools for an amazing, tooth-by-tooth clean.
Q. How does Oral-B’s Oscillating/Rotating technology compare to regular manual toothbrushes?
A. The Oral-B Precision Black 7000 was designed to mimic the round shape of dentists’ cleaning tools for an amazing, tooth-by-tooth clean and remove up to 100% (2x) more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush. Additionally, with so many different types and features available, it’s easy to find one that suits your specific oral health needs. According to a 2005 independent study, “Brushes that worked with a rotation oscillation action removed more plaque and reduced gingivitis more effectively than manual brushes.” The review was updated in 2011 with the Cochrane Collaboration reporting results consistent with their early findings*. Oral-B pioneered this oscillating-pulsating and cupping power technology in 1991 and has incorporated it into its premium power toothbrush range ever since.
