The Oral B Triumph 5000 is an electronic toothbrush designed to remove plaque, keep your teeth thoroughly clean,and keep your gums healthy.

Here's five things about the Oral B Triumph 5000 you might want to know...

1. It can remove up to ninety-nine percent of plaque

2. The different brushing modes include:
- Clean, for regular cleaning
- Soft, for delicate areas
- Massage, for gum line stimulation
- Polish, for getting your teeth to shine

3. You can recharge the battery

4. The toothbrush works with a monitor (the wireless smartguide display) to help you achieve optimum results. I like how the monitor gives you "feedback" while you're brushing, it's really cool. The smartguide display will also tell you how long you've been brushing. The monitor will tell you when it's time to move on to the next area of your mouth. And how neat is this... it even tells you if you're pushing too hard (or not hard enough) on your toothbrush. The monitor will also tell you when it's time to change the brush head.

Try to brush for at least two minutes.

5. It comes with two heads:
- Floss Action Head: This head is used to clean between your teeth and should be used for the "everyday use".
- Power Polisher Head: This is for the occasional polishing. It's designed to keep your teeth clean and white.

There's a button on the toothbrush called the Mode button. This button is set up so you can customize the toothbrush for your own personal needs.

As a quick check, while writing my article I headed over to Amazon.com and noticed that this brush has mostly all 5 stars next to it in the customer testimonials section.

The monitor doubles as a bathroom clock. There's also a battery indicator so you know when your batteries are low and the portable charger makes it easy to keep your toothbrush charged.

The toothbrush really is easy to clean and use. The toothbrush is built well and hygiene-wise, it's an effective tool. It will also do brief pulses every couple of minutes and right after your 2nd minute of brushing, the smiley image will come up and wink at you. There is also a DVD that you get which will clarify how to use the toothbrush and the technique Oral B suggests doing. The brush breaks up the areas of your mouth into four sections and each section will get 30 seconds of work.

Okay so let's talk about the basics of brushing. Here are some basics to follow from the American Dental Association:

- Make sure to brush two times a day and try not to rush things. You're not in a race, so consider your time and do an excellent job.

- Using the proper equipment is crucial. Fluoride toothpaste should be used including a soft-bristled brush head. Electric brushes are ideal, especially for those of you who have arthritis or other symptoms which could hinder your brushing effectiveness.

- Practice makes perfect and make sure you use a proper technique. Your toothbrush should be held at a slight angle and you should brush with short back and fourth motions. Make sure to get your tongue and the gums which meet where your teeth are.

- Make certain your toothbrush stays clean. Immediately after brushing, make certain to rinse it with water.

- Your toothbrush ought to be stored in an upright position and be allowed to air dry.

- Don't store your toothbrush in a container for regular storage. This can cause bacteria to grow.

- Replace your toothbrush as needed (watch for fraying of the bristles).

If you're in the market for a new toothbrush, you can't go wrong with the Oral B Triumph 5000 toothbrush.
