Oral B Triumph 5000 Review/Challenge

Hey guys, so if you remember around the beginning of January I made a post asking if anyone had tried the Oral B Triumph 5000 electric toothbrush as i was interested in buying one as it was on a half price offer in boots however i wanted some feedback before purchasing it. The following day i receive an email from a lovely lady who does the PR for Oral B asking if i would be happy to be sent the Oral B toothbrush to start the Oral B challenge and also do a review on could i resist?! I mean i was desperate to buy one so it just made sense. Just so you are all aware this is my own personal opinion/review and i am not being paid to do this review! After sending off my shipping address i was told the package would be sent out that day and it should be with me within 1-2 days, the following morning it has arrived at my house!! Super fast shipping hey?! I was currently at my boyfriends so my mum left the package under the Christmas tree and when i returned i was sooo excited and couldn't believe how nicely it was its own Oral B Christmas cute?

So the following morning my exciting Oral B challenge had started :)

First of all i just want to give you a quick introduction on what Oral B say about this toothbrush-
What Oral B say:
The only toothbrush to be approved by the British Dental Health Foundation using the most advanced 3D technology from Oral B which both pulsates, oscillates and rotates to break up plaque and sweep it away.
Get a smile you can feel triumphant about. Achieve whiter teeth and healthier gums than you ever thought possible. Experience Oral-B Triumph – a triumph over ordinary brushing.

Even from these few words i feel it totally draws you in to want to know a lot more about this toothbrush, and that's why i am here today.

After reading about this toothbrush i then noticed that Oral B say that this toothbrush can give you naturally whiter teeth in just 21 days- I took this challenge on and explained that i wanted to use this toothbrush for the 21 days to see if it is actually true. I am 100% one for teeth whitening, you are all probably aware that i like to try every product out there to achieve that Hollywood smile so to be able to use an amazing toothbrush and to get my teeth whiter at the same time seemed like a dream to me. Instantly after my first use i can honestly say that i 100% saw that my teeth were whiter. This is no doubt down to the fact that this toothbrush is extremely powerful and really does get rid of all plaque and grim to be able to bring out the inner whiteness of your teeth. I will explain in more depth later the toothbrush itself but for now it does make your teeth whiter once you have finished brushing and after the 21 days i could really see that my teeth were staying whiter throughout the whole day.

From the pictures above you may have noticed an extra gadget which you may not normally see with any normal electric toothbrush and this is the Smart Guide.

What Oral B Say About The Smart Guide:
The experts at Oral-B introduce the Triumph with Smart Guide – a remote wireless display that tells you when you’re brushing too hard, when to switch sides and how long to brush. It’s clinically proven to help improve your brushing habits within 30 days. And it’s the only brand to be approved by the British Dental Health Foundation.

Oral-B Triumph with Smart Guide is a significant advancement in rechargeable toothbrushes, setting new standards in customisation, feedback mechanisms, and overall brushing design.

What is Smart Technology?
It is built into Oral-B Triumph brush heads and the smart guide to provide you with interactive feedback during brushing to help you brush you best everyday. The Smart guide unit provides visual feedback, on the time taken to brush, and the pressure you are using to brush your teeth, but the brush head itself provides an audio cue to these as well. A change in brushing occurs every 30 seconds to let you know how long you have been brushing, with a final alert at 2 minutes. The sound also changes to give you a warning signal, to let you know if you are brushing with too much pressure, in order to protect your gums.

Now for some people this may seem a little "annoying" or "too much" which is understandable as many of you may not be used to having an extra gadget whilst brushing your teeth but if you want the full experience of this toothbrush then this is a must have in my opinion. The Smart Guide is the main body of the toothbrush if you like, it controls how long you brush your teeth for, it gives you a warning if you are applying too much pressure whilst brushing, prompts you after 30 seconds to change the quadrant and helps you to brush thoroughly across all 4 quadrants of your mouth and it also memorises your absolute brushing time, and tells you when you should replace your toothbrush as dentists recommend you change your toothbrush every 3 months (brushing twice a day for 2 minutes). So yes the Smart Guide does count up or down 2 minutes so you know exactly how long you have been brushing for so you do have to get used to looking at it whilst brushing as not rushing round the house trying to get ready whilst brushing like i used to do. Believe me you will get used to it and it's what makes your brushing experience 100% better and i can assure you if you don't watch it and guess 2 minutes you will notice the difference and wish you had kept your eye on the timer :)

Another great feature of the Smart Guide is it allows you to choose which setting you would prefer your toothbrush on, either daily,sensitive,deep clean,polish or massage. My personal favourite and the two i used the most were the deep clean and the massage. The deep clean is a real grim stopper and to me it feels like a much better clean at the end of it whilst the massage mode is something totally different,although it does give your teeth a good clean i use it more after i have brushed for the recommended 2 minutes and then have the enjoyment of a teeth massage at the end.
I love the overall look of the toothbrush, it has a very sleek design and also comes with a travel case with two spaces for brush heads which is great for me as i spend a lot of time at my boyfriends house so to be able to keep my miracle toothbrush in a nice clean case is a huge plus for me. Included in the box you also get 2 brush heads 1 sensitive and 1 pro bright. Again because of my love for teeth whitening i have been using the pro bright brush head. As i love this toothbrush so much me and my boyfriend went out and purchased some more brush heads which are the dual clean, these looked fabulous as they actually have 2 round brushes on them so i can't wait to try that out. Like i just said my boyfriend bought some as well and that is because he actually went out the next day after me giving him a 1 use review to buy this toothbrush. Usually he likes to do a lot of reviews on electrical items before he purchases anything so i was pretty shocked when he went out to buy one after i told him my experience after just one use. I have to admit i did know i loved the toothbrush from just one use though.

Ryan my boyfriend is actually going to do a review ON HIS BLOG HERE so be sure to check that out :)

When i was in discussion with the lady from the PR company via email she informed me that the toothbrush would give you that dentist clean feeling. Now i love it when i have just come out from the hygienist and your teeth feel incredibly clean and fresh and was really hoping i would feel this from the toothbrush and i can honestly say i do. For a few days every morning and evening i was just wondering around my house feeling my teeth with my tongue as if it was chocolate lol as i just loved the feeling it gave my teeth. That sounds incredibly strange but i hope you all know what i mean. It does state in the booklet you are given with the toothbrush that your teeth may bleed on the first two uses. I have really sensitive gums so mine did bleed twice but after that my teeth and gums got used to the new sensation. Also i love the way the toothbrush does all the work for you, there is no need to scrub really hard up, down and around your teeth, you just hold the toothbrush on your tooth and move it along slowly. It does everything for you and still gives you and amazing clean. I suffer with plaque at the back of my bottom teeth and i have noticed this toothbrush has helped improve it.

Over all i would give the Oral B Triumph 5000 10/10 and can honestly say i will NEVER go back to a manual toothbrush and can't believe it has taken me this long to realise how fantastic they are.

I am really so grateful to have been given the opportunity to try this toothbrush out!
