When my last toothbrush went up to the dentist in the sky, I debated on buying a Electric Toothbrush as they had long been reccomended to me over a number of years by different people but I had just never gotten round to buying one. To be fair, the price kind of put me off a little truth be known, but, after an emergency dental appointment to remove an aching tooth, I consulted my dentist and he said that while an electric toothbrush might not have prevented my problems with my cavity and rotting tooth, it very well might help to perserve my teeth for longer and mean less visits to his office in the long run!
Well that made me sit up as my local dentist does not come cheap!
In previous years, I have been reccomended to floss but I don't get on with that and my dentist told me if I used an electric toothbrush, this helped eliminate some of the need to floss! Another advantage!
It was with this in mind, and some research on the internet, that I finally settled for this model!
Braun's Oral B range have a good reputation and that was always a god place to start but it wasn't just that; this looked like one of the better models available on the shelf of my local supermarket! It comes with a charge light which flashes until it is fully charged and a charge lasts for just over a week! The head is a small enough size to get into all sorts of tight nooks and crannys in the mouth and the vibration is light enough to be pleasent enough without feeling intrusive or rude!
Overall, there could be better products on the market but this is the first electric toothbrush I have used so cannot comment. However, I am very pleased with this and the problems I had with a slight aching in my teeth after high sugar drinks seems to have dissapated and largely gone away. I feel overall as if this cleans much better than a manual alternative and reccommend others to switch as I have!
I bought this for all the wrong reasons, because I thought it would be loud and wake everyone up and because the idea of having a light on your toothbrush amazed me.
Everytime I went to the dentist on my 6 month check up my dentist would always complain about the tar I had on my teeth even though I brushed my teeth twice a day everyday for three minutes.
ENTER BRAUN ORAL PROFESSIONAL CARE TOOTH BRUSH 5000
This is actually amazing, it cleans my teeth really well and its so easy to use, instead of having to scrub away for a few minutes while your arm aches, you just stand there and slowly move it along to the next tooth as it cleans away!
This is the toothbrush for the lazy person such as myself, and its really easy to change te heads once ou've used them for too long. Since I got this, tar has been a thing of the past, and... I even got a sticker at the dentist.
Totally worth it.
