Great toothbrush and great deal!

thanks for posting ordered one

I brought this over a year ago to replace my old sonicare. Very good for the price bit having used oral b and sonicare...sonicare wins every time. I've actually just replaced this toothbrush with a sonicare deal that was listed a few weeks back.

Overall, this is good for the price but for £15 - £20 more get a sonicare.

If you want two brushes like I did I would recommend Philips Sonicare HX6952/71 from amazon for £75.

Great price for this, as i always say, being a dentist myself i strongly recommend the Oral B over Sonicare purely on clinical evidence, however they are both great brushes and personal preference is key! This is pretty damn hot though, makes me wonder if a newer model is going to be coming out soon.

Been researching a new toothbrush all yesterday, on here and elsewhere. I'm a happy Braun owner and have been for a number of years, but the support and recommendations for the Philips Sonicare is overwhelming; so I've I've gone for the Sonicare Healthy White Deluxe from Amazon for £37.49 -- it was £36 yesterday but was holding out, didn't pay off but this is still at least £10 cheaper than the next cheapest places (Boots and Argos).


Argos are doing a x3 brush heads pack for this Sonicare at half price at the moment too, was £18.99, now £9.49.

Ordered one this morning..purely as its recommended by all the dentists I know

I thought Which? recommened the Braun? This is v.v. cheap? But is the sonicare really significanlty better? and which model of sonicare should I be looking at?

arrrgghhh bought this at 57 or something yesterday and it wont let me cancel as its dispatching soon....rubbish!!!

Which? recommends the Sonicare mate. The award is shown on the link I posted above and on the Argos website. I spent most of yesterday looking into people's comments on the Braun and Sonicare posts on this site and a majority of people say that the Sonicare is better. I know the person above said their dentist recommends the Braun, but read the others posts and you will see that for every one dentist that recommends the Braun, there are 10 that recommend the Sonicare.

Maybe there isn't that much between the 2, sort of like comparing Mercedes and BMW. Like I said, I've been happy with my Braun for a number of years, but going by general oppinion and the better price, I'm going to give the Sonicare a go this time round.

Is this really that good?

Would I be able to tell the difference between using this and a Oral B Professional 1000?

probably best price on the market so far.Great deal just ordered one .thanks

Amazing price. Paid £75 in September.

I agree with this opinion that they are like comparing a BMW and a Mercedes, but as i posted in a previous thread, the clinical data supports the use of the Oral B Brushes over Sonicare as they are proven to be better at removing plaque. However, the underlying point should be that both toothbrushes are shown to have a vast improvement on gingival health and plaque removal over the use of a manual one.

For those interested here is some clinical study information.

Study from 1996
Study from 2001
Study from 2005
Study 2 from 2005
Study 3 from 2005

Funny how most of the test studies have 3 or more personnel from Oral-b or their parent company Gilette...

Hmmmmmmm....??? Unbiased, I don't think so.

Only thing with those tests is they're not indipendent, most of the pannel are from Oral-B, so I'd be inclined to disregard them. It's like drugs trials, often pannels are owned/organised by the people who make the drug and are engineered as such to highlight their product to the maximum and ignore anything that takes away from it. Some are now actively routing out test subjects who respond to the placebo effect -- sounds rather conspiritory but when you think about just how much the industry is worth you'd be a fool not to consider this factor.


Been driving my face with a Merc for a while now so going to try out the better valued and much publicly recommended Beemer for a hoot!!

My point essentally is, that as dentists we are taught to work via evidence based dentistry, and though the evidence is from their parent company and people want to believe that they are biased thats fine, but there is only evidence in articles and studys to support Oral B not Sonicare (not even biased ones from philips) and thats what i base my clinical decision on as a dentist. As i said they are both better than manual anyway but i would always go for the oral b

Here's the link to Sonicare trails and studies : sonicare.com/pro…spx

I also read that Philips Sonicare range are about 10% more energy efficient than Oral-B's -- LOL, not much of a factor, but hey, energy efficency floats my boat; I am a Hot UK Deals member, after all X)

i already posted them earlier in the thread, and with respect to the sonicare studies, i dont doubt their data at all thanks for pointing them out to me! But they are not a comparison study against oral b, which the other articles are.

Amzing, had one for a year now

Well that was very interesting read. Ok I just ordered after concluding it is a hot price and should be an improvement over my manual brushing technique. And when it conks out, i'll buy and try a sonicare and let you guys know the difference

Dave, give Amazon a call and they'll refund the difference. I bought it yesterday at £56 too.

THANK YOU! just ordered one, hopefully the dentist will be surprised on the next visit lol!

Great Price, and just wanted to wade into the debate of Oral-b vs Sonicare, used to have a sonicare before it died a few months after the warranty was up. I asked the periodontist I was seeing at the time what he would recommend, he said that although the sonicare are great at what they do, most people tend to use them incorrectly in pressing down just a bit too much which stops it's effectiveness. It's also too easy when brushing certain areas of your mouth to press down too hard and it stops being as effective as it should be .The oral-b is good because unless you press it down so hard the brush stops spinning, it's doing it's job. He in effect told me that unless you pay attention and ensure you at all times hold the sonicare at the right distance and do not press down too hard when brushing, he would recommend the oral-b.

Good point by your dentist. How long ago did you have this conversation with him? Would also be good if we get some feedback from some Sonicare users on what they think about this dentists point of view.

I got one one for Christmas and it comes with a 2 year warranty as standard and a further year when registered. A 3 year warranty on a toothbrush ain't bad at all!
