TriZone 5000 The New King Of Electric Toothbrushes



“Brush your teeth twice a day and you’ll have no problems” they said. Well they were wrong! Those obsessive brushers that brush their teeth after every meal, or those that floss and brush twice a day can still have dental problems. Why? Well it’s the way we brush that can cause the damage!

You could be brushing way too too hard, or for not long enough. Both these issues are extremely common and that can certainly lead to tooth decay and gum disease. So what can you do about this?

Well one solution would be to get yourself an electric toothbrush, and one that teaches you how to brush your teeth!


Yes, Oral-B have solved the age old problem of not cleaning your teeth properly. It started off with their Oral-B Triumph 5000 and its wireless SmartGuide. This device aimed to bring a digital version of your dentist, into the bathroom. It keeps a close eye on your brushing from linking up your toothbrush to a device that tells you if you’re not brushing correctly. It gives you teeth brushing tips from the comfort of your own bathroom. I thought this was just a gimmick, but once I tried it out, I realised just how badly I’ve been brushing my teeth all these years.

The SmartGuide will certainly help you improve your brushing technique, but after a while you tend to know what to do and then the device becomes a handy bathroom clock.

The latest model to join the Oral-B toothbrush family is the Trizone 5000. It too uses the high-tech SmartGuide device, and was giving the opportunity to try this bad boy out to see how it fairs with the rest of the brushes that we’ve reviewed over the years.

How Smart Is The SmartGuide?

It’s very smart. Smarter than me when it comes to knowing the perfect way to brush those pearly whites!

Oral B SmartGuide Device

I reviewed the Oral-B Triumph 5000 in the past and found the SmartGuide extremely useful for about a week, as once it’s given you a few pointers on what to do, you then understand what it takes to get the perfect clean. I wrote a more in depth piece on the SmartGuide over on the Triumph 5000 review.

Overall it’s a great idea, and you’ll be surprised by how badly you’ve been brushing. It will improve your brushing and give you the good habits back.

Oral-B will also give you an extra free 1 year warranty. You’ll get a code inside the box which you can use online to get this.

TriZone is Backward Compatible.

The TriZone brush heads are currently unproven, unlike the Precision Clean brush heads. A lot of people aren’t that happy with the TriZone brush heads, so just as well that it’s backward compatible! This means that it can take the Precision Clean brush heads with no issues at all.


The Precision Clean brush heads are proven to remove 11% more plaque than ordinary brushing.

What’s the Battery Like?

The battery life on the Oral-B Trizone 5000 is very good. One of the best we have tested. In our tests we got about 9 days use with a fully charged brush. If you’re trying to decide between the TriZone and Triumph models, then go for the TriZone for the longer battery life. Another great thing about the TriZone is you can use the Precision brushes. A lot of people prefer these to the TriZone brushes because they feel it removes a lot more plaque. I tend to agree.

Other Cool Features of the TriZone 5000

6 Teeth Cleaning Settings
The TriZone has 6 awesome settings for you to play around with.

Daily clean: This is your normal daily clean setting. You get exceptional cleaning of teeth and gums, leaving your teeth feeling lovely and silky smooth.

As I’ve mentioned before, an extremely handing device to help you improve your brushing. Here are some awesome features of the SmartGuide.

Visual Pressure Alert: Smart Guide sets off a visual warning when you are brushing too hard to help you keep control of brushing and protect your gums.

Which one is better Oral-B TriZone 5000 or Triumph 5000? Which one should you buy?

I’ll keep this simple. There isn’t much between the two models, except the improved battery life of the Trizone. So I’d say the Oral-B TriZone is the slightly better model.
The brushes on the Triumph are better at removing plaque, but you can use those brushes on the TriZone, so go buy the TriZone!

Why you should go electric.

It’s really a no brainer. If you want a far superior clean, better oral health, better smelling breath and overall improved oral health, then you need to get yourself a TriZone 5000.

An incredible 85% of dentists recommend that you should use an electric toothbrush, as it will eliminate the issue of human error when it comes to the teeth cleaning process.

ToothBrushMan’s Verdict


One of the best brushes on the market and at a really good price. The TriZone is well worth the money and will leave your teeth feeling like you’ve had a trip to the dentist, but without the hefty bill at the end of it.

My advice to you would be to buy the Trizone 5000 and swap the brushes over to Precision Clean brushes, to get the best clean.
