I had an electric toothbrush in the past and when it broke i never bothered to replace it. Recently thought i feel as if no matter how frequently i am brushing my teeth they never seem to be properly clean, and they have been becoming a little discoloured so i decided to treat myself to a new electric brush. I looked at many different makes and models and after weighing up the options and reading reviews i settled on this one (i kinda liked the colour too) it arrived quickly and included one brush head. From the first time i used it i could feel the difference to my teeth, and after only a few days the discolouration on my bottom teeth is lessening. The pressure sensor is a great addition as i am often guilty of brushing too hard and causing my gums to bleed. If i go too hard with this a red light flashes as a warning, and if you ignore that the brush head stops moving. I can’t yet comment on the battery life as i have only had it a few days. I am over the moon with this toothbrush, and it was very reasonably priced too.
I have used oral-b electric toothbrushes for quite some time now and this is pretty much on par with every other one i have owned. Few things to mention about it, the charger is small so easy to take with you on a trip and doesn’t take up too much space in the house, the charger however is a eu charger so you will have to get a travel plug for it to work (pretty much every electric toothbrush i have owned has been like this) it holds a charge well and the brushes are probably the cheapest of all out there (philips are about double the price) the downside to the brushes however in comparison to philips are they are quite abrasive when first used philips are much softer and easier on the teeth and gums. I would however say if you are buying replacement brushes for the oral-b buy their own not the after market ones, the phrase you get what you pay for could never be more true in this case.
I’ve been using oral-b electric toothbrushes for a quite some time now, and have always been pleased with them, though eventually they wear out and need to be replaced. This may not have all the bells and whistles of the higher end models, but this provides everything i usually need in a toothbrush – except this time it comes in bright pink. The charging base is compatible with other brushes by oral-b that i’ve used in the past, which is helpful. One full charge usually lasts me a just under a week and the red light on the handle is a reminder of when you only have a brush or two left between charges. The brush itself is pretty lightweight and relatively easy to angle around your teeth. This is helped by the number of different brush heads that you can purchase separately to help ensure you get a good clean. When in use the handle gives a quick vibrate to remind you how long you need to keep it up, which is handy for helping you maintain your good habits.
I’ve had the oral-b pro 2000 crossaction electric model for just over a year and generally been happy with it. To be honest i don’t really discern any worthwhile difference in use or results between that model and this one, other than colour. I’d actually say the other one was better value as you get three heads included. With this you just get the one. Otherwise, the pink isn’t too pink and it actually looks like a pretty nice, good quality product. So everything is as you’d expect from oral-b. Cleaning is effective but i’m still not even sure if this, or my older model, cleans better than a standard non-electrical brush. I know it is supposed to, my dentist told me so, but i’m only partly convinced if you use both correctly. At the price i’d say this is a great gift and if you prefer electric then you probably won’t regret it. Just check the other models and decide which seems to offer the best for your money.

The opportunity to review this cropped up as yet another brush was dying. This one has a different selection of features but seems expensive compared to other similar models:- a 2 minutes indicator with 30 second indicators (light motor pulsing)- a pressure sensor – a red light shows on the handle if you push the brush too hard on your teeth. – two brushing modes, daily clean and ‘gum care’, which is a slower variable speed to massage the gums (but i’m unclear if this is essential). – a low charge indicator and a charging a charging light and a low charge indicator. Apparently, when not in use, you can leave it plugged in all the time – with the occasional complete discharge to improve battery life. It charges up to usability fairly quickly – although the instructions say that it can take over 20 hours to fully charge. Once completely charged it will last up to 7 days. I am a long time user of braun, i can’t imagine using another type so this was a serendipitous opportunity. However over the years a few things have cropped up that braun could consider rectifying:- the chargers are interchangeableso although this one could be wall mounted with extra parts, i was able to reuse my existing wall mounted chargerhowever i have yet another charger that i do not need – could braun nor rethink how they package these things?- the only reason a new brush is required is because the battery has diedit is possible to replace the battery with a third party product but it’s not a trivial jobthe variety of brush heads are all interchangeable between models, a good thing, but i suppose i’d like to know more about whether they are all essential for oral health. The one supplied, the ‘3d white’, is ok but i think i prefer the all-bristle varieties.
Great product would recommend.
