Oral-B Pro 7000 Review

Oral-B Pro 7000

Editor’s Note

The Oral-B Pro 7000 is still a current model being sold by major retailers, but it has technically been replaced with the Oral-B Genius Pro 8000.

The Pro 8000 offers a refreshed design, improved battery life and features.

You can find out more about it and what we think of it by viewing our Oral-B Genius Pro 8000 review.

Our Verdict

The Oral-B Pro 7000 is a solid electric toothbrush.

It ticks a number of boxes and is certainly more than you ‘need’.

You could do a lot worse than the 7000, but subject to the price at the time of purchase, pay serious attention to the Genius Pro 8000 as this may well be the better deal.

Pros

  • 6 cleaning modes
  • Built-in timer
  • Pressure sensor to alert you when brushing too hard
  • Bluetooth connectivity for pairing to smartphone app for tracking cleaning
  • Box contents

The 3 BIG questions about the Oral-B Pro 7000

If you are short of time, the answers to the following 3 questions should let you know all you need to about the Pro 7000 (view on Amazon). If we have missed something, let me know in the comments.

If you prefer more detail, you can read the full Oral-B Pro 7000 review further down the page.

1. Is there anything drastically wrong with this toothbrush?

No most certainly not.  It is one of the most feature rich brushes available with a very good box contents.

Personal opinion will creep in as to whether it is worth buying such a capable brush because it offers more than what most of us need.

The Black color option is less clinical looking but lacks some finish in my opinion; the brush head is white.  There is a White color option which looks more complete even if a bit more traditional’ looking.

I have given it a rating of 4/5.

2. Which other brushes should I consider?

Whilst the Pro 7000 is still a ‘current’ model, new models have been released that essentially replace the 7000.

Revised designs, improved technology and different box contents.

Take a good look at the Genius 8000 from Oral-B, it is our recommendation over the 7000 as for a little extra spend, you are getting the best Oral-B toothbrush as per our electric toothbrush buyer’s guide.

If the 8000 is a little too pricey, then the Pro 6000 benefits from several improvements at a lesser cost.

3. Where’s the best place to buy the Pro 7000?

Amazon is one of the best places to buy the Pro 7000 from.

Whilst Oral-B toothbrushes are generally widely stocked, the fact that it has essentially been replaced, this older model is now sold by as many retailers as it once was.

You will be best to shop online. Ebay is a good option too.

And now for a bit more detail…

The Pro 7000 is most commonly seen in a Black color option but White is available too. It is often also referred to as the SmartSeries 7000.  The terms Pro and SmartSeries are sort of used interchangeably and are essentially the same model.

SmartSeries is a newer model range name that has been given by Oral-B to highlight some of those models that offer more advanced features such as Bluetooth connectivity.

The 7000 in truth is probably fitting of a 5* review rating, but the Genius Pro 8000 and Sonicare DiamondClean models push the rating down as a result of what they offer as a package in my opinion.

What’s in the box?

  • Braun Oral-B Pro 7000 rechargeable toothbrush (Black or White color subject to your purchasing choice)
  • Charging station
  • Toothbrush head storage compartment
  • 4 x Brush heads (CrossAction x 2, Floss Action x 1, Pro White/3D White x 1 and Sensitive x 1)
  • Wireless Smart Guide
  • Premium travel case
  • Documentation
Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 1

Key Features

  • Oral-B 3D movement cleaning system (pulsates, sweeps and rotates)
  • Rechargeable battery with 40 minutes of usage time
  • 6 cleaning modes (Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening, Deep Clean and Tongue Cleaner)
  • Visible pressure sensor
  • Clean timer including quadpacer
  • Wireless smart guide
  • Brush head storage compartment
  • Premium travel case

Pro & Cons

Here are what I consider to be the pros and cons of the Pro 7000 from Oral-B.

The Positives

  • Overall package & box contents – What you get here is just excellent. There is lots in the box with all the things that most need and much more. You don’t get options with more in the box.
  • 6 cleaning modes – Lots of cleaning modes to suit different users. From the conventional daily clean mode through to more advanced modes like deep clean and whitening.
  • Timed Clean – An audible and visual warning when to change quadrant and when the 2 minute cycle is complete.
  • Battery Life -10 days of battery life makes this one of the longest battery lives from the Oral-B range of electric toothbrushes.
  • Pressure sensor – A rear mounted pressure sensor illuminates red if you put too force through the handle when brushing. The warning light makes it clear you need to reduce that pressure and encourages a better clean.
  • Smart Wireless Guide – A portable clock and timer that shows your cleaning mode, how well you are brushing and how long you have been brushing for.

The Negatives

  • Price – Whilst not bad value when you consider what you get, unless the cleaning modes and features will really be used, the Pro 1000 (view on Amazon) or Pro 3000 (view on Amazon) from Oral-B are much better value.
  • Design – The Black color option is appealing but the lack of a matching black brush head is in my opinion and oversight when other brands offer this.
  • Battery Life – Up to 10 days life or 40 minutes of usage time is weak in comparison to a Philips Sonicare brush range that can offer as much as 3 weeks!

Design, usability, clean & general use

The name Pro 7000 is particularly fitting when you consider just what this brush offers.  Ok, the fact it is also referred to as the SmartSeries, does make things a little confusing, but then this brush is smart too, especially when you consider the Bluetooth connectivity.

Let’s take a look at that element first because this is a new, potentially powerful and smart way to interact, learn and be educated to clean your teeth better.

Once you have downloaded the Oral-B app which is available for both Android and iOS you can go about connecting the Pro 7000 to your smartphone, just like you might connect a set of Bluetooth headphones or a car audio kit.

Once connected the ability to store and share more data allows you to essentially build a cleaning history and diary of performance and the app can work as a coach.  You can have the brush programmed to offer selected cleaning modes and have the app prompt you for flossing and rinsing your mouth with mouthwash and more.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 2

The app is very powerful and also comes with handy integration with your calendar, news, tips and tricks so you stay interested when cleaning your teeth.  Although on occasions it can be a bit distracting from you ensuring you brush correctly and you may want to customize the settings to avoid some notifications.

You do not have to have your phone with you every time, the brush itself can store the data for up to 20, but there are some limitations by not having it with you like a real on-screen time and performance tracking.

Available for a couple of years now the app has improved over time with increased reliability and features.  I have found on occasions the app will think I have stopped brushing when I have not.  It is not perfect, but far better than most would think.

Whilst a toothbrush plays a vital role in oral hygiene the routine and way in which you clean does too. This app makes it easy to see and represent in real-time just how good, or bad you are doing.

Ultimately this Bluetooth connectivity will not be for all and there is no denying you need to train yourself to use the app initially, as for many the concept is a little alien, when you have spent years with a less intelligent toothbrush.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 3

Just one element of the brush there is a lot more to the Pro 7000.

The physical size and shape of the brush handle is larger than other Pro range brushes including the Pro 1000 and 3000. About a 1cm thicker in hand and about 35g heavier at 168g with the head attached.

It is not huge nor cumbersome to use in hand but the thicker profile is noticeable if you are more familiar with the thinner handles.  The benefit is the increased number of cleaning modes.

Ditching the gloss white plastic the front and rear of the Pro 7000 Black is finished in a soft rubber grip which is black in color and the sides are in a matte silver.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 4

The addition of a rubber grip on the back (only plastic ridges on other Pro series brushes) is quite a bit more comfortable and premium looking than the normal hard white plastic. But gone are selected contours around the power button which are quite nice on the more entry level brushes.  The power button is just as tactile but is a little more recessed.

On the rear neck of the brush just before getting to the interchangeable heads is a smoked grey panel which sweeps down into the boy of the brush to join up with the two blue LED light strips that run the length of the body.

This is the panel that illuminates red if ever too much pressure is applied during brushing.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 5

Whilst it illuminates a red which is quite visible to you as the user you will hear the sound of the motor change and if using the smart wireless guide you will see a sad face.

If also using the Oral B app, the timer will change to a red color and tell you too much pressure is being used.

As soon as the pressure is reduced, the light will go out.

For safety’s sake, the brush will reduce the power to the brush head when the sensor is active

The bristles of the brush should virtually skim the surfaces of the teeth and do not require a lot of force.

Now, this brush comes in two color options White or perhaps a little more common is the Black color option.  It is this option we have been testing out for this review.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 6

The Black color option is complemented by silver, rather than the more traditional white.  In my opinion, this looks smart and makes this brush appealing for the sake of not being quite so clinical looking.

The black rubber and matte silver sides look smart from a distance, but often the power button on the front of the handle is highlighted via a white power icon.  That is not the case here.  This means the power and function keys are almost lost within the body of the brush.

The silver and black also shows water marks and dirt a little more than other models and the rubber has a different texture to the Pro 1000.  It looks classier but overall is not as good in my opinion. A small niggle, but a price worth paying to not look like your conventional electric toothbrush?

For me, though there are a couple of oversights in the design and finish of the Black colored model. The interchangeable brush head is white in color and sticks out against the black.  A black colored brush head (not the bristles) would finish it off a lot better.

Phillips have clearly got this bit sorted as you get color coded brush heads and can buy them separately, the white just looks silly.

Such an issue does not plague the White colored brush.  This is then for me, why I would opt for the Pro 7000 in White.

Whilst the power and function buttons might have lost their white color accents, they do have blue illuminations that show through once the brush has been powered on. Once on they look good, very modern and current.

A nice touch also is the line of blue light that goes from the bottom to the top of the brush; although this line of blue light varies in intensity where the design and positioning of the LEDs have been poorly completed.  Picky I know, but noticeable once you see it.  However, Oral-B deserves credit for breaking away from the normal.

With my critical had on it is small gripes like this that leave me feeling a little negative about the brush, particularly if I was to be paying the suggested retail price of $240.  Thankfully prices have dropped considerably and for the current price of around $120 I can let this slide (sort of).

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 7

At the end of the day, the job of this brush is to clean your teeth and that is a job it does do very well.

Depending on what report you read will depend on what statistic you see, but generally speaking, the consistent power delivery and approach used when cleaning your teeth with an electric toothbrush will result in at least a 100% improvement in plaque removal.

The cleaning modes and engineered brush heads are particularly good at removing the bacteria buildup that often finds itself building up along the gum line.

The brush heads provided with the Pro 7000 use an oscillating rotating and pulsating motion as shown in the following animated image.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 8

In the box comes  2 x CrossAction, 1 x Floss Action, 1x Pro White/3D White and 1 x Sensitive brush head. but you can also purchase a Precision Clean, Deep Sweep/TriZone and Dual Clean options to use with the brush handle.

Remember that you should always change the brush head every 3 months or sooner for the optimum performance and to avoid damage to your teeth and health.

Oral-B’s very own brush heads use a dye on the Blue colored bristles that fade in time.  This acts as an indicator to you that you need to change your brush head, or indeed a reminder can be set in the Oral B app.  So if bristles that were once Blue are now White/Clear, get a new brush head.

The Smart Series 7000 offers 6 different cleaning mode.

These cleaning modes are:

  1. Daily Clean
  2. Gum Care
  3. Sensitive
  4. Whitening
  5. Deep Clean
  6. Tongue Cleaner

We explain these in further detail in this post on Oral-B cleaning modes.

You can choose any cleaning mode you like based on your preference. Press the power button once to turn the brush on, then press the function button underneath to cycle through the cleaning modes.  Press and hold the power button to turn it off.

It is advisable to use the toothbrush head best suited for each clean and your personal oral hygiene needs.  For example, the Pro White works best with the Whitening mode, and brush head can be technically used with any cleaning mode.

A standard brushing cycle is for 2 minutes, but cleaning modes such as whitening and deep clean will go on for longer, whilst the tongue clean is shorter.

During the normal 2 minute cleaning cycle (Daily Clean) the brush will provide an audible warning via a slight pause in the brushing at 30 second intervals to tell you to change quadrant. This is your built-in timer. As an added bonus on the 7000 the pressure sensor will illuminate green.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 9

The brush continues to operate at the end of the cycle, unless you turn it off. The pause at the end of the 2 minutes is a little longer and there is an extra flash of the green led in the pressure to signify to you it is the end of the clean.

Brushing for the full 2 minutes is very important, but just as important if not more so is the right technique.

You should also note that it is vital to clean your teeth at least twice a day.  Always try to leave 45-60 minutes after eating before you decide to brush.

If you struggle to keep yourself cleaning for 2 minutes or forget, there are a couple of tools to help you.  There is the app and the Smart Wireless Guide.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 10

What I believe to be a really useful inclusion with the brush, this small unit is powered by 2 AA batteries that typically last 3 months.  This guide can sit on its own on a worktop or it comes with a clear plastic frame into which it sits.  A provided adhesive pad can be adhered to it and in turn a wall to have it up more at eye level.

Wirelessly communicating with the brush, it not only acts as a clock but shows you what brushing mode you have selected on the Pro 7000 and how long you have been brushing your teeth for.

We can all get distracted when cleaning and think, how long have I….and this smart wireless guide assists with that.

If too much pressure is applied and the pressure sensor is activated a sad face will appear on the display and at the end of the clean you get a star rating out of 4 along with a face be that sad or happy to depict how effective your clean was.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 11

There is also a quadrant guide that shows on the display.  As the clock passes 30 second intervals different quadrants flash to highlight which one you should be focusing on.

The brush handle itself does not clearly show what brushing mode you are using.  If you turn the brush on and then press the mode button twice what cleaning mode is it?  The Smart Guide shows this too via an icon.  Such simplicity is missed on the brush handle.

Throughout use the battery status icon and buttons on the brush handle are illuminated and these along with Bluetooth cannot be turned off to conserve power.

Wireless icons along with a 3 stage battery icon are shown in a panel in the lower third of the brush handle.

When the brush requires a charge the battery icon will flash red, but you may want to top it up before it gets this low.  What is nice is that although not precise the 3 stage battery icon gives a good guide to how much is left before and after use.

Refer to the battery life section of this review for fuller details but over a week’s use is possible from this brush.

There is no denying my teeth always feel cleaner with an electric toothbrush clean than that of a manual brush.

For some, particularly if the Pro 7000 might be your first electric toothbrush using the Sensitive cleaning mode and sensitive brush head for a few weeks would be good to ease you into the power and experience of using such a brush.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 12

It is worth noting too that it’s not uncommon for your gums to bleed for the first week of use.  This will subside, if not seek medical advice or stop using the brush.

As time goes by, you will have healthier, cleaner teeth and gums.

Included in the box with the Pro 7000 is a charging stand, but also a molded piece of plastic complete with a lid which offers a home to additional brush heads.  This protects them from dirt and dust and gives a safe place to keep them.  Ideal if you use different brush heads or have brush heads for different users.  Essentially a neat countertop storage and charging solution.

Of particular interest to those who travel is the case for the 7000.  It is a premium travel case, not some cheap plastic number that is all too common.  This is more than functional holding the brush and up to 2 brush heads.

Sadly you can’t charge the brush in the case like you can with the Genius Pro 8000 travel case, which can also charge your smartphone too.  But none the less, this color matched travel case is rigid, with a soft touch finish that looks premium and fitting of the brush you will put inside it.

It is a little bulky, but it does stop accidental activation of the brush when in transit and any possible embarrassment of vibration coming from a  bag!

As a molded brush with a virtually all in one design, maintenance is not simple on this brush other than a rinse and a wipe.  But then it should not be required.

The brush is designed to be water resistant and should not succumb to exposure to water, toothpaste, and saliva.  Whilst safe to use in the shower my recommendation is to avoid prolonged exposure to water and do not leave the brush sat in any water or do not submerge.  Always towel dry if possible.

Should something go wrong, there is as standard a 24 month warranty is provided with the Pro 7000.  This covers the battery too.

  • 5 brush heads included
  • Holder for up to 4 brush heads
  • Alternative brush heads available

  • A pressure sensor that illuminates red for pressure and green on a quadrant change
  • Smart wireless guide that acts as a timer, clock and encouragement tool

  • Bluetooth connectivity to record your brushing history
  • Water resistant
  • 2 year warranty

Battery life

The Pro 7000 once boasted the best battery life of an Oral-B toothbrush, but this has been beaten by newer models.

At up to 10 days, it is still pretty reasonable for most of us.  Rarely would I need it to last longer, unless traveling for a couple of weeks.

However, Philips brushes are somewhat outsmarting Oral-B in this front with models like the DiamondClean offering up to 3 weeks usage time.

This is mainly due to the battery technology used.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 13

The Sonicare models and now the Pro Genius uses lithium-ion compared the the Nickel Metal Hydride battery used in this Pro 7000.

I think it is only right when paying this sort of money to expect good battery performance.

What stops me from really criticizing it is that normally, for most of us a toothbrush is generally left in one place and can be comfortably left on the charger without issue.  It is not all that often we need it to last longer.  There are some exceptions, I know.

If battery life is of the uppermost importance but you still want a highly rated model, check of the Sonicare range.

Naturally, a charging dock is included in the box.  This can stand on its own, or you can fit it into that space within the brush head tray that allows for a neat mounting and storage option.

An all white charging dock, there is a small prong that sits proud of the surface and fits into a recess in the bottom of the Pro 7000.

You might wonder how exactly is does charge like this.  The brush essentially has wireless charging.  There are charging coils in the charger and the brush itself that conducts the charge through the plastic body.

With one user, brushing twice a day for the recommended 2 minutes the 7000 will give 10 days of usage or 20 cleans which equates to 40 minutes of usage time.

Some modes like Deep Clean last longer so will reduce the number of cleans or cleaning time available from the internally fixed battery.

Thankfully the battery status icons are a little more helpful than on cheaper models like the Pro 1000 and the three bars that illuminate blue give more indication as to just how much power is in the brush.  So whilst not wholly accurate you get a better idea.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 14

It would be good if the app on your smartphone gave more precise battery data.

When power is really low a red charge indicator light begins flashing.  If it gets this low you will normally hear and feel the speed of the brush decreasing and it will eventually turn off if all charge is used.

At any point, the battery icons are illuminated during and post use of the brush but do go out after about 15 seconds.

When docked and charging it can take 40 minutes of charging time to gain enough power for a 2 minute clean.  If you want to charge the brush fully it can take up to 24 hours!

24 hours is a long time to charge a brush, but the way it charges is slower and everything is safe and this is quite normal.

Unlike your smartphone or other gadgets, the charge is pushed through at a slower rate.

It is safe to leave the brush on the charger all day long without overcharging the battery.

The manual does advise that every 6 months the brush should be discharged fully to maintain performance.

It is a shame that Oral-B have yet to employ an automatic switch off at the end of a cleaning cycle like Philips offers. I am sure for some this would allow the battery power to be maximized a little more.

Should the battery fail for whatever reason within the warranty period, it is covered.  It is not user replaceable.  Whilst technically you can open the brush up remove and replace the battery, it invalidates the warranty, is not advised and requires things like a soldering iron.

We strongly advise altering the battery or trying to replace it yourself.

Summary of battery life

  • 40 minutes of usage time or 10 days usage based on 2 cleans a day
  • Can be left on the charger
  • Takes up to 24 hours to charge fully
  • A charger included in the box
  • Battery status icon gives an indication of battery power

Price & where to buy

I have included links to buying options here at the start of the review.

In the section below, I discuss the price more generally and in relation to similar products.

The SmartSeries 7000 or Pro 7000, however you wish to refer to it has a suggested retail price of $240.

Electric toothbrushes are often actually sold a reasonable amount lower than this and getting 25% off is not at all uncommon, it can be as much as 50%.

However, where once it did command this price, the introduction of the Genius Pro 8000 has seen this price drop a little further.

It averages now at around $160, but you can buy the Pro 7000 for as little as $120.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 15

Of course there ongoing costs to owning this sort of brush and that is the replacement brush heads that you need every 3 months.

Brush heads can be purchased in packs of varying sizes.  Often buying more makes the price cheaper.  The exact cost will depend on which brush head you want and where to buy them from.

The more standard CrossAction often works out the cheapest with a single head costing $8 normally.

To get an idea of what the cost of ownership is, despite the 2 year warranty, our research would suggest 3 years is typically the amount of time people own a brush for.

Using the average cost (based on one user) and ownership over 3 years the SmartSeries 7000 will cost $224 or $0.20 cents per day to own.  

Buy it at full price and that increases to $0.28 per day.

This price does exclude the cost of water, toothpaste and electric to charge it, but you get a rough idea and is one of if not the cheapest decent electric toothbrushes available at the moment.

If you share the brush handle (not the heads) with other family members then the cost comes down quite considerably.

Please note that all prices quoted are approximates and will vary based on location, supplier and time of purchase.  These figures were correct at the time of writing and should not be relied upon as hard fact, but used as a guide during your decision process.

Summary of price & where to buy

  • Recommended retail price of $2400
  • Available from $120
  • Replacement brush heads $8 each
  • Works out at around $0.20 per day over 3 years
  • Share brush handle with another user to extend value

Reliability & long term use

Any brush that we review at Electric Teeth we really try to test it and look for weaknesses and areas for improvement.

The real test is time, day in day out to really see how each model lasts.

It is not possible to test for long periods and review.

We have tested the Pro 7000 for about 6 weeks consistently and have found little in the way of areas of concern.

Oral-B Pro 7000 Review 16

The Black can attract dust and particles a little more than some others as the rubber has a slightly different texture to the cheaper brushes. A rinse usually solves this.

If the Pro 7000 lasts as well as other the Pro models that has been on test with us for 2 years and an older Triumph 5000, which is now over 4 years old then you will have gotten pretty decent value for money and reliability.

We see no reason why this should not last as long.

When buying Oral-B you are getting a good quality brush.  A 2 year warranty is included and offers peace of mind for some time.

The weakest point is probably the battery.  After repeated charges and discharges it can fail and should it, they are not easy to replace. To prolong the life of any brush do try to discharge the battery fully every couple of months and give it a rinse and a wipe down to remove grime that builds up.

We will always feedback and update this review should our findings change.

Conclusion

I mentioned at the start of this review how the Pro 7000 (view on Amazon) in truth is probably fitting of a 5* review rating rather than the 4 it actually has been given.

However, the Genius Pro 8000 pushes the rating down as a result of what they offer as a package in my opinion.

This said, the SmartSeries 7000 is still fantastic and on many levels wins.

If you like the appeal or need more cleaning modes and intend to share this brush with other family members, this electric toothbrush represents a good buy whilst giving obvious oral health care benefits.

Ultimately despite the more clinical look, I would opt for the White color option but that is personal opinion.

The clean provided by this brush is simply superb with the various modes and brush heads included not to mention the added benefits of the app and pressure sensor helping show just how capable this is.

Some may find the Bluetooth a bit, well, unnecessary, but where is the harm in having it.
