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.

Naturally whiter teeth in just 21 days

The experts at Oral-B introduce the Triumph with SmartGuide a remote wireless display that tells you when youre brushing too hard, when to switch sides and how long to brush. Its clinically proven to help improve your brushing habits within 30 days. And its the only brand to be approved by the British Dental Health Foundation.
Braun Oral-B Triumph with SmartGuide 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 brushheads and the smartguide to provide you with interactive feedback during brushing to help you brush you best everyday. The Smartguide unit provides visual feedback, on the time taken to brush, and the pressure you are using to brush your teeth, but the brushhead 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.

SmartGuide Visual Features:

Brushing Timer: Guides you to brush for the dentist recommended 2 minutes.
Visual Pressure Alert: SmartGuide will set off a visual warning to help you keep control of brushing and protect your gums from brushing too hard.
Quadrant Prompt: Prompts you after 30 seconds to change the quadrant and helps you to brush thoroughly across all 4 quadrants of your mouth.
Replace Brushhead: Dentists recommend you change your toothbrush every 3 months (brushing twice a day for 2 minutes). Triumph with SmartGuide memorises your absolute brushing time, and tells you when you should replace it, to ensure that you brush with an optimality performing toothbrush.

Customized Brushing

Customize your brushing experience with 5 unique brushing modes. With the push of a button, choose the one thats right for you.
Daily Clean: Exceptional cleaning of teeth and gums.
Massage: Gentle stimulation of gums
Sensitive Clean: Gentle, yet thorough cleaning for sensitive areas
Polish Mode: Polishing and natural whitening of your teeth by removing stains
Deep Clean Mode: For a dentist clean feeling

Why use a rechargeable brush?

- All Oral-B rechargeable toothbrushes are clinically proven to remove more plaque than a manual brush

- Oral-B 3D technology is clinically proven to remove 2x as much plaque than a manual brush

Neither hot nor cold from me but at this price I would invest in Sonicare as I think they're better. I'm someone who suffers from yellow teeth and my personal experience is that the Sonicare range whitens teeth better, has a more usefully shaped brushead and makes teeth feel cleaner. I admittedly used slightly cheaper Brauns in the past (though it did have the rather useless pressure alert), but it seems to me that most of the "features" here are pretty cosmetic. I think the quadrant timer is a great feature though as I'm often a bit rushed. Anyway, I'd highly recommend this brush for the same amount of money - less different brusheads and no digital display but a better clean in my opinion:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-Sonicare-HX6711-HealthyWhite-Rechargeable/dp/B0012NOEXI/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=drugstore&qid=1271377317&sr=8-5

Has been around this price for long time here and there. I bought one last year and some water leaked in after 2 month same as my mates one.
#3
My boyfriend recently got one of these - he swears by it and his teeth are much whiter.
#4
I purchased one of these, the best toothbrush I've ever used. It hold its charge so you don't have to keep on recharging it every few days, the timer doubles as a digital clock for the bathroom and informs you of how long you've been brushing and I've noticed my teeth are noticeably cleaner as a result if using this toothbrush.
#5
is this better than the 20 quid ones from oral b as i have one of those and splashing out 70 quid on this seems dear....any one used both?
#6
I have the Oral B 2000 which is an £80 toothbrush. However, I doubt it's much better than the £20 ones. At least I only paid £23 for mine when Amazon had it on offer at Christmas. It only holds a charge for about 6 days. I'd like to know if the top end ones like the 5000 hold it for 2 weeks?
#7
Yes my top end oral B brush that i bought about 3-4 years ago held its charge for a good 2 weeks, although now its dropped to 1.5 weeks. Brush has been good, much better than the cheaper/slower £20 ones.... Would advice to try it out or the sonicare, both will be better than the £20 one you are talking about.

Edit by the looks of those reviews I wouldn't buy that Sonicare one....

I paid £50 for my top end braun so £70 is about right as the brush itself is the same spec just the extra display, etc.
#8
[COLOR="Navy"]Thought my Sonicare was the best until I got this. Deep cleans your teeth. The 'daft' timer device makes a good bathroom clock which we do use.:-D hot.[/COLOR]
#9
I have tried various oral-b toothbrushes but find the rechargeable battery dies or the charger dies after 12months. They were OK but my latest Phillips Sonicare toothbrush is much better (it was more expensive than this though!)
#11
Got one of these last year, excellent brush. The display isn't that useful,but it's handy having a clock in the bathroom :)
#12
Voted hot i got the 4000 version and my girlfriend has the 2000 version, i been using it since Xmas and cant believe i aint been using an electric toothbrush earlier, very good highly recommended!
#13
Philips sonicare ftw !!!
#14
used oral b toothbrushes in various guises for about 20 years now. I've tried the expensive ones all the way down to the cheapest ones.

To be honest, I would recommend that you go for one in the £20-30 range. The reason is the that the cheapest ones don't feel as comfortable (but still do the job) and the more expensive ones offer little extra for the price and as the comments here have already said these things DO wear out after about 1-2 years.

I'm not voting either way this time as it is undoubtedly good value compared to the RRP, but not so good value compared to cheaper alternatives from the same manufacturer.
#15
Just go for THIS if you don't want the Blutooth Smartguide display, same spec half the price again :-D

I voted HOT btw.
#16
Whoever said that the Sonic Care are better the Amazon reveiws say you're lying

well my daughter is a dental nurse and their practice recommends the sonicare ...but amazon MUST know better than a dentist eh ??

For reliability, I've had no problems with Oral-B brushes at all.

My Professional 7000 that I got over two years ago, has had no noticable loss in charge, only cost me £19.99 from Amazon.

My OH bought an original Oral-B Timer around 2001, was still using it until I got her the Triumph when it was only £62 - odd at Boots last Christmas, no problems.

Until I got the 7000, I was using an original Oral B professional that I got as a gift in Christmas 1998, it was in daily use for over a decade.

It doesn't hold a charge as long as it used to, but it's still great for cleaning the wax out of Sennheisers that have 'broken' earbuds and car wheels (really), not bad for a 12 year old brush.

Our secret is to not leave them on the charger unless they actually needs charged, this tip works for cordless phones too.

A friend of mine managed to ruin the battery in his brush after about a year, but then he used to leave it perpetually on the charger, he freely admits he's a chump with tech, did the same thing with an expensive Motorola StarTAC flip phone in the nineties.

Read again, I didn't state same brush - in fact I made it clear that it wasn't... It's a cheaper alternative :roll:

Can you tell us a bit more... apart from the smartguide and extra brushes is the iq5000 actually any better? I want to get a brush but if they both clean just as well then i'm not really bothered about unnecessary extras. thanks.

So long as you get the 4000 per minute ones rather than the 2000 per minute ones (or whatever the difference is), the rest is pure gimmick. I paid about £23 for one and it will work as well as this.

And OP please don't post RRP - no-one ever pays anything like that amount.

It's all in the deal post, ultimately it depends on whether or not you'll want the extra modes, my OH uses a few of them, loves the display etc.

I've got both a Professional Care 8500 and a Triumph and besides the gimmicks they both clean as well as each other, there is a cheaper 6000 on Amazon but that is slower and would still clean well, just not as well.
HTH

This was down to £61 a few months ago on Amazon, I bought one then.

Also when the last time i checked the Which? reviews gave 3 electric toothbrushes a "Best Buy" award, all were Sonicare. I think some of the Braun toothbrushes got some decent reviews but in their opinion they were nowhere near as good as Sonicare.
#27
I bought one of these last year from Amazon for £62.

I'm delighted with it and would highly recommend this toothbrush to anyone (despite the cost)
#28
It may seem like a massive amount for a toothbrush but in comparison to dental work the price isnt that bad at all. I have a proffessional care toothbrush that Ive been using for the past 3 months and highly recommend any oral b products to anyone.
#29
Forget all the fancy things it comes with like smiley faces etc. The actual way it works i.e. 8,800 oscillations and 40,000 pulsations/min are no higher than models half this price. I picked up a braun professional series 8500 for just over £30. The biggest difference compared to this model is that it lacks the 5 different modes (I think mine has two) but the actual technology behind the way it cleans is the same. An extra £40 for a handful of novelties is a lot.
Hot deal compared to other retailers, but not the best value toothbrush for what is, essentially a jazzed up version of much cheaper models.
#30
I got the Triumph 4000 from Argos last year for £50. That's a much better deal considering it's the same toothbrush just without the gimmicky "smart guide". The 4000 is £65 on amazon at the moment.
#31


Until I bought the 8500 cheap last year I would have agreed with you, but a good electric toothbrush is much better at cleaning your teeth than a manual one and although I think this one is more than you have to pay I would recommend that everyone tries a good electric toothbrush, I thinkl you will be surprised at the results
#32
I still don't think £70 is good value for a toothbrush!

Rchargeable batteries suck in the long run, they can't hold charge for more than a few days.
I own the 8900 and it's sufficient but I think Oral-B really need to address the durability of their products. They are just not good enough considering the costs (and ongoing costs-- toothbrush heads are expensive at £2 a pop). I've had three of their electric brushes, one couldn't hold charge for more than 2 days, one just stopped working-- both were only a year old.
#33
I didn't know so many people care about their teeth. I just had my 2nd stage of my root canal done yesterday. Gotta say that my dentist is very good, a refreshing change from the one I had before. Whilst I had a scale and polish done by gums were bleeding quite bad, but settled down after a while. So floss regulary and use some good tooth paste. I was told to buy colgate duraphat 2800ppm and a good brush. So I for me its a toss between the sonic care and the one in this thread. But didn't currys have them cheaper a while back? I can swear I saw a thread on it before :thinking:
#34
The newer modern ones are far cheaper and far better value.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

1. Buy £5 tooth brush.
2. Move arm up and down.

Sounds simple. Once you get the hang of it it works a treat. ;-):whistling:

Hi, techinically the oral-B professional is better than any of the sonicare toothbrush however I think the user technique makes a much bigger impact. It can be proven that the side to side sweeping movement of the sonicare toothbrush is not as effective at plaque removal when compared to the 3D rotory movement of a tooth brush such as this. There is also no "sonic" effects when using a sonicare toothbrush, that is just how they are named.

Both electric toothbrush would help keep staining away from your teeth, however neither would "whiten" your teeth as this would require a chemical reaction such as the use of hydrogen peroxide. (yup, they lied to you about the whitening toothpaste too)

akkenan - you are right that the mechanism of this tooth brush is the same as their entry model professional series, which is significantly cheaper. However this unit comes with a satellite which has been shown to improve brushing time.

I think Funkymoneydooda summarised it very well. Hope this helps.

and you have scientifically tests to prove your point...2nd point also no proof ... Opalescence toothpaste contains no peroxide and DOES whiten teeth
#38
£70 for a toothbrush? are you guys secret millionaires? I think I will stick to a normal brush with some manual hand action lol
#39
Given the rip-off cost of your average decent manual toothbrush, I find it cheaper to buy brush heads in bulk when they're on clearout or half price, saved me quids over the years in the long run.
#40
Duffa666, regarding your first point, there was a research published in 2008 in the American Journal of Dentistry by Biesbrock AR., et al. which showed the sonicare was inferior to the oral-b triumph. The paper is titled: Plaque removal efficacy of an advanced rotation-oscillation power toothbrush versus a new sonic toothbrush.

I had a look at the Opal toothpaste and I would be interested in your reasoning why it does whiten. I believe the current toothpaste system may remove external staining more effectively. However, this would leave your teeth the same colour as it was before staining, rather than whitening it.
