Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does Oral-B’s technology compare to regular manual toothbrushes?
A: The Oral-B PC 5000 was professionally inspired for tooth-by-tooth precision cleaning to remove up to 100% more plaque along the gum line than a regular manual toothbrush.
Q: What are the customized brushing modes, and how do they differ from one another?
A: The Oral-B PC 5000 features the following modes: Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening and Deep Clean. Daily Clean operates with 3D movement for a basic, everyday clean and includes the added benefit of a visible pressure sensor. Gum Care features massage mode for the gentle stimulation of gums. Sensitive operates at a lower speed to gently clean teeth and gums. Whitening alternates between speeds for a gentle polishing on the tooth surface to remove surface stains. Deep Clean extends your brushing time for an even more comprehensive clean.
Q: Which brush heads are compatible?
A: All of the following Oral-B brush heads are compatible with the Oral-B PC 5000: CrossAction, DeepSweep, Floss Action, ProWhite, Precision Clean, Sensitive, Dual Clean, Power Tip, and Ortho.
Q: What’s the importance of the Pressure Sensor?
A: It’s important to brush gently to promote proper cleaning. The Visible Pressure Sensor lets you know when you’re brushing too hard by lighting up and stopping pulsations to help protect your gums.
Q: How long does the PC 5000 hold a charge?
A: A fully charged Oral-B PC 5000 lasts for up to 7 days with regular use. To ensure that your battery is able to hold its maximum capacity, deplete the battery by using without in-between charges until it is fully discharged. Do this at least once every 6 months for best results.
