Default Electric tooth brushes...

A bit off/on topic, but I am going out to grab one today, any recommendations on brands or models? With the amount of coffee I drink, and tobacco use, I could use all the help I can get between dental appointments.
On topic because oral health care is important to us, or should be, anyway, and I know that some of them also have tongue scraper attachments for our minty fresh kissable breath for our spouses..

What works, what did you get that sucked, what would/n't you buy again?

I have a Sonic Care. Not sure which model, but it still works great. They sell interchangable colored heads/bristles for them, so you can buy one and let the whole family use it and/or replace the bristles evry 6-2 months.

I love it!

We've got an Oral-B Professional Series 8500. Seems to work well. We can take it on weekend trips without needing a charging base and it holds the charge well. Comes with all different kinds of brush heads, etc.

Go with sonicare. My mom is in the dental insurance business and all the dentists and hygienists recommend the sonicare. I have one that has different settings for example, sensitive teeth, massage, go care, max care, and clean. I dont think I'll ever go back to using a regular tooth brush....too much work lol

Oral B Triumph 9000 or higher, best darn toothbrush ever made. Suggested by my dentist. I been making a lot of perodontist visits before switching to the Oral B a number of years ago. I haven't been back since, the toothbrush has some amazing features including a 2 minute timer broken down into 30 second intervals so you can clean top and bottom, inside and out. Mine came with travel case and the adpater is 110/220 compatible. I own 2 of them and got them at Costco which also carries the replacement brushes.

Yup Oral B Proffesional is the way to go, most Dentists sell them in their offices.

Also get a hummingbird flosser, it is a hell of a lot easier than using floss along.

I have both an Oral B and a Sonicare. I prefer the Sonicare. Feels better from an ergonomic standpoint, and has a thirty second "interval timer" that I like (tells you when to move on to the next quadrant). Just feels like it just the better job.

Post up another vote for Sonicare. My dentist noticed an amazing difference from when I started using one.

I don't like the big over powering ones... I use the Oral-B Pulsar (http://www.oralb.com/us/products/manual/pulsar/). It's a disposable electric toothbrush, you can get it at any grocery store for a decent price.

Followup:
Got the Oral B professional 8950 yesterday at Costco. 89.00 minus a 10.00 coupon for a total of 79.00. Pack of 6 or 7 extra brush heads for 32.00.
Charged it yesterday afternoon, first use last night. Impressions?
Nice piece of equipment, teeth felt great afterwards, and I think it did a terrific job just as far as efficiency and the ergos and mechanics feel food. It came with charger, two power handles, a travel case, 2 normal (precision clean) brush heads, two "floss action" heads, and the tongue scraper attachment. I suppose I will try that when I can get over the slight gag reflex I get when trying to use one of those. If the way my teeth/mouth/gums feel after brushing is any indication of further results, I can imagine not only a healthier mouth, but a significant positive impact on the effects of cigar smoking, both staining and to help with "post smoke breath."

The science is behind the sonicare and the oral b triumph. We sell both at my office more of what the patient expects then we can guide them to the right brush.


Glad you made the purchase and I hope you like it.
