Connecting and charging
Your toothbrush has a waterproof handle, is electrically safe and
designed for use in the bathroom.
Plug the basic charger (g) or the assembled charging unit (picture
B/C) into an electrical outlet and place the toothbrush handle (d) on
the charging unit.
The green charge indicator light (e) flashes while the handle is being
charged. Once it is fully charged, the light turns off. A full charge can
take up to 22 hours and enables up to seven days of regular brushing
(twice a day, 2 minutes) (picture 1).
Note: After deep discharge, the green light might not flash imme-
diately; it can take up to 10–15 minutes.
If the rechargeable battery is low the red low charge indicator light (f)
is flashing for some seconds when turning your toothbrush on/off.
For everyday use, the toothbrush handle can be stored on the
charging unit to maintain it at full power. Overcharging is impossible.
To maintain the maximum capacity of the rechargeable battery,
unplug the charging unit and fully discharge the handle with regular
use at least every 6 months.
Using your toothbrush
Brushing techniques
Wet brush head and apply any kind of toothpaste. To avoid splashing,
guide the brush head to your teeth before switching on the appliance
(picture 2). When brushing your teeth with one of the Oral-B
oscillating-rotating brush heads guide the brush head slowly
from tooth to tooth, spending a few seconds on each tooth surface
(picture 5). When using the Oral-B «TriZone» brush head place the
toothbrush bristles against the teeth at a slight angle towards the
gumline. Apply light pressure and start brushing in back and forth
motions, just like you would do with a manual toothbrush (picture 6).
With any brush head start brushing the outsides, then the insides and
finally the chewing surfaces. Brush all four quadrants of your mouth
equally. Do not press too hard, simply let the brush do all the work.
You may also consult your dentist or dental hygienist about the right
technique for you.

bristles to help
you monitor brush head replacement need. With thorough brushing,

exert too much pressure on teeth and gums.
