The Oral-B Pro 7000 is an advanced-power electric toothbrush with Bluetooth connectivity and 7 independent functions to enhance the brushing experience. As the first ADA-accepted electric toothbrush, Oral-B Pro 7000 is a toothbrush that you can rely on (view details).
While the brush is one of Oral-B’s more expensive products, the Pro 7000 helps users with key problem areas, including sensitivity, gum care, and deep cleaning.
With Oral-B alone offering dozens of toothbrush styles, it can be difficult to know which features are most important when choosing a long-term toothbrush. Along with this, electric toothbrushes are becoming increasingly popular, meaning users need to be more selective than ever when deciding which toothbrush best guarantees a safe and effective oral hygiene routine.

6 key features of the Oral-B Pro 7000 toothbrush unpacked
The Oral-B Pro 7000 toothbrush includes a 2-minute timer and a pro timer. The 2-minute timer alerts users to the end of their 2-minute brushing time to ensure a thorough clean. Along with this, the pro timer buzzes in 30-second intervals, reminding users to move on to the next section or ‘quadrant’ of the mouth.
The quadrants are as follows:
- Top teeth: back left to center
- Top teeth: back right to center
- Bottom teeth: back left to center
- Bottom teeth back right to center
As an advanced model, the Oral-B Pro 7000 toothbrush has 6 cleaning modes: Daily Clean, Deep Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening, and Tongue Clean. While the Daily Clean is most suited to everyday use, the other 5 options appeal to users with specific problem areas. Because of this, users can customize the brushing experience to best suit their needs.
3.) Battery life
The Oral-B Pro 7000 toothbrush has a 10-day battery life, which is double the battery life of the Oral-B Pro 500 and only 2 days shorter than the Oral-B Genius.
4.) Pressure sensor
By using a pressure sensor function, the Oral-B Pro 7000 toothbrush alerts users when they brush too hard, reducing the risk of enamel and gum damage. This also helps to prevent bleeding, which is common when users brush too roughly.
5.) Brush heads
Unlike other models, which feature 1 brush-head style, the Oral-B Pro 7000 toothbrush has 3 brush head options for users to try. These include Cross Action, Pro White, and Sensitive. Oral-B also sells replaceable brush heads separately, so you can trial several options before deciding which best suits you.
The Oral-B Pro 7000 toothbrush includes Bluetooth connectivity, which links to a real-time app that tracks your brushing routine. By doing this, the app can offer feedback to users to help improve overall oral hygiene.
How does the Oral-B Pro 7000 toothbrush compare?
Both the Oral-B Pro 7000 and the Oral-B Pro 500 have the same 2-minute timer and a pro timer. However, the Pro 500 model only includes one cleaning mode and offers a less diverse brushing experience.
|Features||Oral-B Pro 7000||Oral-B Pro 500|
|Modes||Daily Clean, Deep Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening, Tongue Clean.||Daily Clean.|
|Battery life||10 days||5 days.|
|Pressure sensor||Yes (LED)||No.|
|Brush heads||1 Cross Action, 1 Pro White, 1 Sensitive.||1 Precision Clean.|
|Connectivity||Bluetooth (connects to app).||No.|
Who is the Oral-B Pro suitable for?
- Those looking for a tailored brushing experience with multiple modes.
- Those with specific problem areas (such as gums, sensitivity, etc.).
- Those used to advanced toothbrush technology.
Because of its price tag, this brush is less suited to those on a budget or those looking for a no-frills design. If you don’t require the additional modes, a cheaper one-mode brush option might be a better choice.
