I like them. :thumbsup:

They can feel a bit funny at first because of the vibration through your teeth, but you soon get used to it.

They shouldn't damage your teeth. The only real damage would be if you pressed too hard, but that is the same with manual toothbrushes.

If you are thinking of getting one then you should know that research has shown that the rotary toothbrushes, like the Oral-B kind, are the best to get. The up/down type aren't as effective.

The big advantages of using an electric toothrush to me are that they clean my teeth better, are easier to use and just make the whole brushing your teeth thing seem like more fun. :-D

Better than electric is the sonic variety. Both my dentist and my mothers dentist recommend Philips Sonicare - I have had mine for 2 years and my mother is just pruchasing! The lastest top of the range are expensive, but the heads are cheaper as the majority of the mechanism is now in the body rather than the head.
My dentist only ever gives me the occasional polish since swapping over and I would never go back! Couldnt recommend them more.
They were half price at Boots for a while so check for offers. Heads are cheapest on eBay.

my friend has actually given me a" Braun oralb plaque remover solo " to have but she doesnt have any heads for it so where is the cheapest place to buy the new heads ? how long do they last ?

well i think their good, i killed two birds with one stone buying one of these as a gift

I bought a rechargeable sonic toothbrush for about £50. Then spotted one in Boots for £5 that just takes a AA battery. I've been using it for 12 months now and it's just as good as the £50 toothbrush and not had to change battery yet.

That's not nice is it? I think the shop would have accepted cash too! :whistling:

Had a Braun Oral B a while back & it used to eat heads at the rate of about 1 a month (very costly to run).
Got a Philips Sonicare for a present a few years ago & noticed that the heads last about 6 months.
I'd say it is brilliant.
I visit the dentist twice a year and it has cost me about £15 each visit for a Check-Up & Polish for the past few years.

I hope you've changed the brush head in that time :-D

My dentist is very keen on them and recommends the braun ones that vibrate and rotate - or something along those lines. I personally have forgotten how to use the non-electric that I take on holidays with me (husband comes too). :)Treat yourself in the sales.

I have been using an Oral B toothbrush for about 4 years now.........couldn't go back to manual,my teeth just don't feel clean if I use a manual now!

Electric toothbrushes are quite good! I reccomend you ask santa for one.

I don't like electric toothbrushes too much, the heads are too big and I can't brush all my teeth at the back properly which makes me feel dirty, so I stick to my manual now.
#13
you can change your heads to smaller ones

sonicare xpensive but worth every penny you only need one handle and then everyone has a seperate head (all colour coded ) as somone who always needed something done at the dentist , havent had any treatment for 2 years , brilliant !
