How many people have a plug socket for recharging these in their bathroom or do you charge them in the bedroom?

most have a shaver socket

You don't leave it on charge, just over night every few weeks. This is an absolute bargain for this type of toothbrush, if it really is an ultrasonic! To give you an idea of the usual cost here is one from Amazon at over £70

I've had an Ultrasonex for about 4 years (as posted on the Amazon link), if this is anything like it it's a fabulous toothbrush. Your teeth are much whiter and cleaner than "ordinary" electric brushes as it kills all the bacteria.

My previous dentist used one, and I saw my new dentist last week, he still recommends them :thumbsup:

Don't think this is a ULTRA sonic....I'm sure it would say in the advert as it would be a key feature and would make this a great deal.

I think this is a normal electric toothbrush........so not that great an offer

I had a crappy braun that cost over 100 quid- was rubbish and quite painful at times. Went back to good ol manual tooth brush- way better clean

Could not agree more. I have one of these, from Amazon for £30 a while ago and it is fantastic. Makes a huge difference to your teeth.

Not really. Since using it I ve not had the dentist have to remove plaque from the back of my teeth.

Also ....why would dentists use Ultrasonic? For the placebo effect? I think not.

I think many have read the studies... wasn't it done by Birmingham Uni Dental School?
Been discussed here before, and haven't time to dig it out now, but I am sure someone will!

If I remember, whatever method, too much tooth paste, and ESPECIALLY too much pressure ruins the effect including the non-sonic, although the sonic ones suffer from the effect sooner than the mechanical action ones.

I like my sonic brush, and find I get on with it better than the rotary action, but agree that it's not THAT dramatic a difference, which you might miss if you don't use it well - and I also find minimum toothpaste, and minimum pressure works best, but I hate toothpaste anyway, so that suits me!

The 'scientific studies' consistently show better results with rotary than sonic toothbrushes. Furthermore, there is really no consensus that sonic is better than manual. Trouble is most people don't use their manual toothbrush properly, but use a sonic toothbrush in a much better fashion and for a longer period of time.

I can't agree - people are too lazy/hurried/hassled/careless/dumb etc to do that, and ANY powered one will do a much better job under those circumstances.

OK, a tiny minority of people are self disciplined enough to be "perfect" and for them it will be best, but the rest of fallible humanity will do a lot better job with even the cheapest low powered model than with the swishest manual brush. That's nothing to do with the technical arguments - that's people!
