I've been holding out for awhile, but after visiting my dental hygienist in December, she recommended an Oral-B toothbrush. I got online and found a super-powerful one that feels like woodchucks are in gnawing away at my mouth/teeth! The post-brushing feeling is amazing and it flosses pretty well too!

Have you gone electric?

My first one was great not too strong not too slow. But the new one I recently bought is like a jackhammer, yikes! So I don't always charge it all day long. In fact I find letting it stand next to the charger/holder for about two days keeps it just right for me. I wish now I had written down the model number of my old one I sure do miss it. I like the round one best.

Bought the Sonicare after a couple of years of my dentist's office recommending it. Wish I hadn't waited so long. Does so much better than regular brushing and flossing in keeping the plaque and gumline inflammation down.

Yeah, my neighbor kept raving about her Sonicare - 2 brushes for 99 bucks at Costco...so I picked up a set. We love it! It's such a great clean feeling!

Once you try and get used to the Sonicare, if you happen to brush with regular toothbrush you won't feel your mouth is clean. Yes, spend the money and get the Sonicare! Don't forget to change the heads regularly/

I use a Crest SpinBrush Pro -- battery operated. It's great, and since I've been using it, I've had great cleanings/check-ups.

Yup...

I had gotten free sonic care eletric toothbrushes through a website and we used those for a while.

My Dentist recommended the Oral-B and we switched over to those. I prefer the Oral-B to the sonic care.

Have been using it about 2yrs now and when I visit the dentist they do very, very little scraping compared to when I used a manual toothbrush.
