Do all Braun Oral B brushes take the same heads?

I have a stock of the ones for my current model, which seems to be giving up the ghost gradually and I dont reallly want to discard them.

Average deal, nothing special. For example Argos have it for £24.71.


Disagree the posted model is far superior than your Argos link.

It is my understanding that all the oscillating leccy toothbrushes that Braun do are compatible with any oscillating head.

My sonicare gave up and I thought I'd try oral B instead, so I got this, wish I hadn't, feels like a toy compared with the sonicare. I'll be buying another sonicare as soon as I get the cash.

Voted hot though as it's a great price (I paid £10 more), and that's what the site's all about.

Yeah; brand new, half-price, delivered to your door, full warranty. What a rip-off.

Can thoroughly recommend the Oral-B range - I was given the Professional Care 7000 for Christmas and it's been great. Amazon had a cracking deal on brush heads recently as well.
#8
This is a fantastic toothbrush. I bought it from Argos also same price about 2 weeks ago and my teeth have never been cleaner or whiter. Your mouth feels so clean and fresh. Have always had an electric toothbrush but this is amazing. Great deal! Heat added:-D

just ordered heat added

The thing is i personally feel that there isn't a stand-out brilliant electric toothbrush on the market. I've had two Sonicare, two Ultrasonex, three Brauns and my most recent, a £10 Philips Sensiflex in the past few years. The best clean was from the Sonicare but the battery life was poor and the toothbrush heads expensive. I think the cheap Philips Sensiflex was also good and never gave me problems but the clean not as good. I would like the £100+ Sonicare advertised on Amazon but I cannot justify paying that much.

As Sweetchuck mentioned, I was going to order the Oral-B 7000 (excellent reviews) but I saw this and ordered two yesterday. It was out of stock yesterday.
For £25 I'm happy to purchase the Oral-B 8000. With a 2-year guarantee I see it at £12.50 per year (and the brush heads are reasonably priced and available everywhere). If it lasts two years I would be very happy!

I'm going with Sweetchuck and Hpsauce18 on this one!

I bought two of the 7000 handsets almost five years ago now and both are still going strong! Excellent toothbrushes - cannot recommend Oral B enough! If you ask me, the trick to making them last as long as possible is making sure you run the battery right down before charging. Yes you will get one clean that is rubbish (if you only have one handset), but they will last you a lot longer!
#12
Also available at this price in store @ boots if you'd rather buy on the highstreet. I think it's great value.
[helper]#13
Cheers OP, ordered myself one of these. Had my OB for 3 years now and could do with an upgrade!
#14
Just got one of these as the battery on the cheap £12.49 Vitality only lasts a day or so. Also cheap as I have won from the "The Great Match Hunt" a £2.50 voucher!
#15
Got the 7000 deal from Amazon before Christmas, was replacing my original Braun Oral-B Plaque Remover (no timer, green button) that I got back in Chrimbo '98. Still worked fine but the battery was down to a couple of days of useful brushing, I can't fault the build quality.

And they still use the same heads (EB17) BTW :)
#16
Good price for the toothbrush, which was expensive when it first came out. However, being a dentist, sonicare all the way. I use a Sonicare Flexcare and it's fantastic. Worth every penny of the £80.00 from ebay. The heads are also cheaper for the flexcare than the elite heads used to be. I recommend it every day at work.

Does this take the same head as the 7000. I got that for £22 in Tesco during the 1/2 sale

That's what I have - I actually got two handles and three brushheads for about £70 delivered from the US and cannot recommend them enough.
I've had experience of Oral-B and was not terribly impressed - the sonicare just did it right for me......saying that, both are much better than a conventional toothbrush and this is a decent price to dip your toe into electic cleaning - very respectable model too....so voted hot.

I got the 8500 DL version for 23 quid from Sansbury's a couple of months ago.

The DL version came with about 7 or 8 heads.

A good tooth brush - that claimed to be about 90 quid without discount.

The only problem it has is you have no way of knowing until about a minute before it happens that it is going to run out of power (and the travel box it came with seems to expect it to last without a charger).

Whats the difference between the 7000 and the 8000 Oral-B Professional Care?

Charge indicator and pressure sensor on the 8000 series. Other than that, identical...

It says that it has a pressure sensor on the 7000 but has the 8000 got a better one and the 7000 has a charge indicator but only says when it has finished charging. It says that the 8000 when charged lasts for 14 days but the 7000 lasts for 7 days.

Thanks

When I looked at both before I got the 8500 DL - the battery on the 8500 lasted twice as long on each charge.

The 'charge indicator' is a waste of time - and is a flashing blue LED when it is charging that then stays on when the charge is complete - it has nothing to do with saying how much charge is left in the brush.

I got the 8500 DL from Sainsbury's and it was only three quid dearer than the 7000 but came with far more kit (although I doubt if i will ever use a tongue cleaner) but the extra heads are useful - but the main reason is a battery tends to be limited on the number of charge cycles it can do - so in theory the 8000 series should have twice as long a lifespan as the 7000 series.

So looking at it that way - you will replace the 7000 twice in the same time as one 8500 - so it effectively drops the price of the 8000 series - and reduces the waste too.

I disagree. I too am a dentist, and think the Oral B brushes do a better job of cleaning generally, as well as being better in untrained hands. There are a number of research papers (search medline) comparing both, and the reciprocating rotating heads of the Oral B come out top in each.
Anecdotally, I also think the sonicares can exacerbate gingival recession.

The 7000 does indeed have a pressure sensor too. The battery life given in the manual is 7 days if used for two minutes twice a day. However, I use it for four minutes twice a day, and mine usually lasts 10 days before really needing a recharge. You do notice a marked drop in RPM after 6 or 7 days, though.

I've had a few cases where I've recommended an electric toothbrush and at the patient's recall, they have claimed to have started using a rotating oscillating head toothbrush. On examination, I've thought it the thing actually touching the tooth or is it being waved in thin air? I've had far fewer of these such cases with sonic toothbrushes, including the oral B sonics.

However, I'm a firm believer that if someone spends >£50 on a toothbrush, their motivation is better to use it properly. Nevertheless, it would be great if patients didn't believe a toothbrush was a magic wand! lol!

10 days before a recharge!!! That's pretty decent for an electric toothbrush.

In my view, as long as the oscillating head does not stop or slow down considerably during brushing I won't recharge. It would also be advisable to let the battery energy dissipate fully as not_the_messiah mentioned to get the best battery results.

That's what I have - I actually got two handles and three brushheads for about £70 delivered from the US and cannot recommend them enough.


Can I ask if the ones from the US are ready to use by just plugging the 2 pin plug straight into a 3-pin adapter? Seen some for around £50 delivered but seller is not sure whether or not I need a voltage convertor; I think not but better to check before parting with the cash .....;-)

Even toothbrushes sold in the UK have a 2-pin plug so that they can be recharged from an electric razor outlet. The base unit should have a built-in transformer, so I *think* you ought to be okay by using a -pin to 3-pin adapter, but don't take that as gospel truth!
#30
Ordered one, this will do for me, at this price.. hot
#31
They have the same one as tesco has, same price, only via tesco you can still use quidco;) but still vote hot.
#32
Got mine today..different base charger than my other cheaper one of these.. And this as a charging light, etc.. but no timer on it.. you have to get the other model for that.. Comes with 2 standard heads.. so all my other ones still ok to use.. And Argos still have this one at £50... so this is still a hot deal for me, thanks.
