I have had a sonicare toothbrush for over 7 years. I am really happy with it, it is just looking very tired now. I decided to buy a new one. This one is excellent for the price. I searched Boots, Superdrug and various other shops but this was by far the cheapest. So long as you know that you have to use a really light touch and not scrub at the teeth my dentist says that a sonic toothbrush is by far the best way of cleaning teeth.
