I've been using a Braun Electric toothbrush for years. A circular one. Recently I was thinking that the action wasn't really getting to the bottom of the teeth as well as it should. I was almost contemplating switching to a manual toothbrush.
I was fortunate enough to be given one of these new brushes to try out. Although it happened days after I replaced my circular brush!
This action is up and down. It makes a massive difference! I really feel my teeth are getting a professional clean every night.
Also the way these brushes work is so clever. It uses the same pin as the circular one yet it manages to move up and down. This is great news for those tempted to try the up and down brushes. It clips onto the existing circular brush pin.
There is a charging light which come on when the battery gets low. My old one didn't have a warning.
There is also a minute timer to let you know how long you've been brushing.
It comes with some extra brushes which have colour rings so that others can us the same base but use a different brush.
There are 4 settings and speeds on the brush. One is slower, another is like a pulse.
This unit comes with only one brush unlike the Oral-B Trizone 4000
which has 4 toothbrush heads. I got the 2000 model so I could have two bases when one runs out of charge.
I am really happy with this brush in every way. Looking after my teeth is a priority. They are certainly looking a lot cleaner and whiter since switching to the new up and down style.
