Connecting and charging
Your toothbrush has a waterproof
handle, is electrically safe and
designed for use in the bathroom.
• Plug the charger (f) into an electrical
outlet and place the toothbrush on
there. For voltage specifications refer
to the bottom of the charging unit.
• The green charge indicator light (d)
flashes while the handle is being
charged. Once it is fully charged, the
green charge indicator light shines
continuously for 5 seconds; then it
turns off. A full charge takes at least
17 hours and enables approximately
one week of regular brushing (twice
a day, 2 minutes).
• When the rechargeable battery is
low, the red low charge indicator
light (e) starts flashing after turning
off the toothbrush.
• For everyday use, the toothbrush
handle can be stored on the
charging unit to maintain it at full
power; there is no risk of overcharging. However for environmental
reasons, Oral-B recommends to
unplug the charging unit until the
next recharge is required.
Please note: If the charge indicator
light is not flashing immediately,
continue charging. It will appear in
10–15 minutes.
Using the toothbrush
Wet brush head and apply toothpaste;
you can use any kind of toothpaste. To
avoid splashing, guide the brush head
to your teeth before switching the
appliance on. Guide the brush head
slowly from tooth to tooth, spending a
few seconds on each tooth surface.
Start brushing the outsides, then the
insides, finally the chewing surfaces
(see picture 4, page 2). Brush all four
quadrants of your mouth equally.
In the first days of using any electric
toothbrush, your gums may bleed
slightly. In general, bleeding should
stop after a few days. Should it persist
after 2 weeks, please consult your
dentist or dental hygienist.
Professional Timer
A short stuttering sound at 30-second
intervals reminds you to brush all four
quadrants of your mouth equally (see
picture 3, page 2). A long stuttering
sound indicates the end of the
professionally recommended 2-minute

brushing time. The elapsed brushing
time is memorised when the handle is
briefly switched off during brushing.
When pausing longer than 30 seconds
the timer resets.
Pressure Sensor
If you put excessive pressure on your
teeth, the oscillating movement of
the brush head will continue but the
pulsation will stop. In addition you
will also hear a different sound while
Brush head
Oral-B Precision Clean brush head
cups each tooth with a
curved bristle trim and
reaches deep between
teeth at the same time.
It features light blue INDICATOR®
bristles to help you monitor brush
head replacement need. With thorough
brushing, twice a day for two minutes,
the blue color will fade halfway
approximately within 3 months,
signalling it is time to change the brush
head (see picture 4, page 2).
In the first few days of using any
electric toothbrush, your gums may
bleed slightly. In general bleeding
should stop after a few days. Should it
persist after 2 weeks, please consult
your dentist or dental hygienist.
Cleaning recommendations
After brushing, rinse your brush head
carefully under running water with the
handle switched on. Switch off and
remove the brush head. Clean both
parts separately under running water
and wipe them dry before reassembling
the toothbrush. The charger should be
cleaned with a damp cloth only (see
picture 5, page 2).
