    Electric Toothbrush

    Can anyone recommend an electric toothbrush please? I'm going around in circles as there are so many! Thanks

    My dentist recommended getting the basic model of a decent brand. He said all the bells and whistles on the more expensive versions weren't worth the expense.

    Oral b 9000 £100 thereabouts

    Haven't checked recently, but Asda or Sainsburys normally have their Electric Toothbrushes reduced at this time of year. I got a Colgate something or other last December, reduced from £90 to £30.

    Thanks for that, I'll take a look, there's just so many different ones.

    Now I like his/her way of thinking, there's so many different ones, it's so confusing. There's round ones, whitening ones, the possibilities are endless, different brands, different offers, I'm so confuzled right now, thanks

    ​happy to help

    I looked into this and it was between the Oral B 600 or pro 2000 for me. In the end either would do but went for the pro 2000 as it has a pressure sensor which lights up if you brush too hard. But the 600 is also worth considering as this was one that my dentist recommended. Basically the higher the number the more brushing modes they have.

    I'd avoid Oral-B. I bought one less than a year ago and it died on me two weeks ago. When I placed it on the charger, it charged a tny amount so that the head would spin far too slowly to do any cleaning, and for about 10-12 seconds, then it would stop. Thrown it away now. Won't be going back to Oral-B but am watching and waiting for This to come down in price... and it HAS, so I just bought one.

    Overkill!!

    Debenhams had oral b discounted this week. I should of posted it as a deal. The oral b 600 is naff and is always on offer, it don't have much go. The basic models just lack power I find after using a better ones. The one I seen was the 900? Can't remember to be honest as was in a rush but what ever it was they were selling at £45. Down from £100. Maybe national

    have.

    Maybe still have. Was loads at Gloucester. Worth looking in a store if you have one near you. Wish I took picture now and posted. Problem was its what I wanted for Xmas and my partner was with me so did not want to stand looking just incase it's better and cheaper than the one currently wrapped and hidden in the house. Lol.

    I was thinking of the oral B one, now I'm back to square one. Thanks for sharing that though.

    It's important to point out that thousands of people are happy with their Oral-B toothbrushes. It's just that I got a duff one.

    No idea!

    Perhaps this one (havent checked, could be cheaper elsewhere) boots.com/en/…98/

    I'd say having an indicator you arent brushing too hard is useful, other gadgets not worth the cost

    Not trying to advise what to buy but I had a friend who bought a similar model that gave you info on how you were brushing your teeth etc and it cost him over £100. Turned out to be an expensive toy in the end. Was great at first but he soon got bored of it so now it's just used as a normal toothbrush.

    That's what I'm afraid of, I don't want to pay too much for one for it to either give up the ghost after two weeks. Thanks for the input.

    Well my family have had a number of oral B brushes - tend to last us a minimum of 2 years and some more like 4 or 5. Used twice a day and your dentist will notice the difference over a manual brush. But if you want cheap this has a pressure sensor debenhams.com/web…B9A
