I got an Oral-B Professional Care SmartSeries 5000

which unintentionally means I have another clock in my home that I'll need to update at least twice a year.

Shortly after I blogged about replacing the batteries in my Panasonic ES7037 shaver and that my Oral-B Triumph 9400 Professional seemed to be due, it stopped working while I was brushing my teeth. Not enough charge for a single brushing. Replacing the battery wasn't an option, the instructions for opening it is a destructive process. And, didn't see a non-destructive way to open it. Plus not having read the manual recently, I found out it was a destructive process the hard way.

That left me in a panic, since the weather had turned so I was pretty much staying home now and I already way over budget for this time of year, along with a few other extras. But, I knew that I was going to buy one sooner than later. Specifically I was going to wait until the start of the new year, because January was going to be when I would next have some drugstore.com dollars to use.

Then I got email that if I ordered on January 1st or 2nd, I would get an additional 10% off of everything.

I was looking at either the SmartSeries 5000 or the SmartSeries 4000. The 4000 being comparable my old 9400, though not a huge difference in pricing between the two and both offering $15 mail in rebates according to drugstore.com.

What it didn't explain was that you need details from your dentist to do the mail-in rebate. But, I don't factor in mail-in rebates when I'm buying things...because there's no guarantee that I'll get it, or in any timely manner, or that it won't be worth the hassle, etc. But, the one I got, showed up with an additional rebate on the package (the $15 one was inside the package). The rebates were mutually exclusive, because they both require the original UPC code. But, the outer one was less complicated to fill out, and its supposed to rebate me 50%. We'll see.

That first night without a powered toothbrush was hard, I didn't know what to do....it was strange using the old powered toothbrush as a manual, plus I forget how you're supposed to brush manually. But, then I remembered that I have a battery powered one that I picked up during a trip (where I had forgotten to pack the 9400...it was before I had other things that had to wait until after I woke up the day of travel to get packed.)

So I went and got that out. I had run out of regular AA alkaline batteries sometime ago.... :crazy: So, I had to use other AA batteries...my Oxyride ones.

The biggest change with this new toothbrush, is seeing the red flashing light. I thought I brushed pretty lightly already, but apparently I still brush a little to hard at times....in certain places.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
