Useless Junk. Save Your Money,
This review is from: Oral-B Vitality Sonic Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush (Health and Beauty)
When I try out a new electric toothbrush, I test it by using disclosing tablets. Using them, you can see the plaque on your teeth, and measure how much your brush leaves behind. This brush removed absolutely nothing. It's exactly like a standard manual toothbrush that buzzes.
The bristles on sonic toothbrushes vibrate in an up and down motion at high speed. They don't move far, but the speed they're traveling at allows them to scrub the surfaces of your teeth very efficiently. My old Sonicare (purchased before Philips bought them out) left NO plaque film behind.
Curious about the Oral-B's non-effectiveness, I held the bristles lightly against my tongue, and could feel no motion whatever. It's as though the handle vibrates, but the bristles remain stationary.
Fortunately, the brush is inexpensive, so I won't feel too bad about throwing it in the trash.
to brush or not to brush,
This is great sonic brush for the price! It cleans well, very affordable + it was made in Germany.
3*** due to fact, that as I was warned by my dentist, sonic brushes do cause, in a long run, gum recession exposing more of the root Σ(‘◉⌓◉’)
Was having some teeth issues and my Mom suggested I get one of these instead of a normal toothbrush, so I did just to try it out.
My husband and I really enjoy it and both of our teeth are whiter now. I like the timer on it so you know you have brushed enough.
And every two to three months you will need replacement heads, when the blue is gone you will know it is time.
