Electric toothbrush

Posted 2nd May
Hi I’m after some advice as to what electric toothbrush to buy. I’ve looked at the Oclean x pro and oral B 2500 and leaning towards the Oclean. Any advice appreciated on the best electric toothbrush for the money. Any brands. Thanks

No, I don't have eBay account, just found the cheapest Teen brush on there. I didn't look at the feedback, maybe not a good idea then.

Thanks I want hear from people who have the Oclean X or the Pro and know much about it. I’ve not used aliexpress before how much should I pay, and do you know if there’s much difference between the Oclean x and the Oclean x pro?

Great thanks for the info
Can't understand why anyone would want to pay a small fortune for an electric tooth brush . Basically there are just two types sonic or pulsating. The bit that does the work is the actual brush and I can't see any much difference between a £15 and a £200 one unless you really need a phone app to tell you when your teeth are clean. Currently using a sonic brush bought in Aldi 4 years back and it does a good job according to my dentist. Think it was about £17 and got 5 spare heads when they were reduced for £2 ( originally £4).

True, you can also clean well with a manual brush and never have problems

Had 2 electric toothbrushes from Aldi, both lasted less than a year, with the battery gone on both (bought 1, was working well then bought another one for the wife, but she didn't like it. After a few months, my toothbrush became unresponsive, so started to use the wife's spare one. After a few months of use, again, the buttons became unresponsive too. Never again Silvercrest.
I'm a Sonicare girl myself and have used them for years (before that, it was Ultrasonex, back when the toothbrushes were a bit more pricey to purchase).

Electric Teeth is a good resource if you need some help deciding. They even have a Sonicare Vs Oral-B? article.

Thanks that’s really helpful
I've used a sonicate diamond and whilst it felt very good I was disappointed it stopped working after 2 years. Whilst that may sound like a good life span for a £100+ toothbrush I tend to agree it wasn't worth it.

You probably know this already but Sonicare have a 2 Year Warranty - I always register mine online when I receive a new one.

I had a HealthyWhite replaced a few years back that died within a few weeks of its warranty expiring (turning on of its own accord in the middle of the night - the power button had gone rogue. Some blame it on water getting into the battery well/rubber seal - there are tutorials to fix it - even how to replace the battery if you're feeling adventurous. The toothbrush rattling away on the sink gave me a ruddy fright!).

Philips send out replacement (refurbished) handles for warranty claims, at least, they did back then.

I'm afraid Silvercrest are Lidl not Aldi but normally have a 3 year warranty too. We both have the Aldi 'Visage' ones and they are still going strong. Did have battery fail on my Philips flosser after 18 months , they did replace the unit , just pointing out that even the top brands get the odd problem.
