CINCINNATI -- October 17, 2013

Driven by its heritage and commitment to provide superior technology in oral
care, Oral-B announced today its most innovative power brush to date, the
Oral-B BLACK 7000. Built to perform, this new power brush delivers an amazing
cleaning experience shown to provide superior plaque removal and improves gum
health compared to other power brushes.* The Oral-B BLACK 7000 also removes
100 percent more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush, helping users
achieve a smile that’s not only beautiful – but healthy.

Accelerating to top speeds faster than a race car, the new Oral-B BLACK 7000
features 40,000 pulsations and 8,800 oscillations per minute and provides a
tooth-by-tooth clean. It was designed with a sleek, black handle inspired by
its target consumer and the latest trends in luxury and premium goods
including cars, cameras and high-end technology products. Oral-B BLACK 7000
offers six different cleaning modes, including a new Tongue Cleaner mode for
fresh breath, and is compatible with a range of Oral-B brush heads, to provide
a truly personalized and targeted approach to brushing.

The Oral-B BLACK 7000 also interacts with Oral-B’s SmartGuide technology, a
wireless display that acts like a dental professional in your bathroom,
providing feedback as you brush, to help guide a thorough, yet gentle
two-minute brushing experience, as recommended by dentists. When using
SmartGuide, people are five times more likely to brush for two minutes twice a
day, and nine out of ten aggressive brushers reduced their brushing force.

“With the Oral-B BLACK 7000, we’re continuing to provide the best brushing
technology available, created by German engineers with zero tolerance for
plaque and a passion for innovation and design,” said Rishi Dhingra, Marketing
Director, Procter and Gamble. “We believe that with this new introduction
we’ll deepen our value in consumers’ lives, not just a superior cleaning tool,
but as a must-have personal accessory at home or on the road.”

For brushing on-the-go, the Oral-B BLACK 7000 comes with a luxurious yet
durable travel case that was tested in extreme conditions. The brush can also
be used along with the new Oral-B smartphone app. The app is ideal for users
who choose to leave their SmartGuide at home, but still want to enjoy similar
brushing guidance when traveling. The six cleaning modes provided by the
Oral-B BLACK 7000 include: Daily Clean, Deep Clean, Sensitive, Whitening,
Massage, and the new Tongue Cleaner mode. It is also compatible with the
following Oral-B brush heads: Precision Clean, 3D White, Sensitive,
FlossAction and Deep Sweep.
