Cheap & Genuine Oral-B, Recommended
on 22 July 2015
Review of the Brush Heads:
These TriZone brushes are excellent and when used with my trizone 2000 brush. They leave my teeth and mouth feeling cleaner than a manual toothbrush, and have not caused any irritation or problems after years of use. The cost of these replacement heads make investing in the 2000 or 600 series trizone toothbrush economical compared to replacing good manual brushes, at around £2.50 per head. These brushes will also fit the more expensive 4000/6000 series of trizone brushes. They last over 3 months, and the colour fade indication halfway down the light-blue bristle may even exceed this by a month or two. Users having access to a supply of cheap genuine Oral-B replacement heads should see this as a huge positve when weighing up the descision to buy a trizone brush.
A Note on Genuine Oral-B Parts:
These replacement brush heads, when bought directly from Amazon as the seller (i.e. it is amazon both selling and dispatching) are genuine replacements as far as I can tell. Some customers have reported problems with fake or third-party compatible brushes; which made me hesitant to order - especially considering these are half the price compared to high street retailers; but other helpful customers have correctly stated that you will receive genuine Oral-B heads if bought from amazon as the seller. I dont want to heavily discourage others from using other sellers on amazon (as competition is healthy), but it appears some third-party sellers may not be stocking geniune Oral-B parts on this product page.
As for the brushes I bought from amazon: there is a batch code under the brush, there are small notches in the holes that the brush bristles protrude out of, and the inside and outside of the brush generally matches the look from the set I bought from Boots a year ago. The packaging is a plastic pack as shown in the product picture, containing 4 blister packs for each head. From inspection I am conviced these are genuine Oral-B parts. The only difference I can tell is the Oral-B logo on the bottom of the heads appears very slightly lighter, perhaps that could be because Oral-B/Braun are running low on grey ink. Im happy they are genuine and sell this cheap on amazon, as i was on my last brush head. This saved me from brushing my teeth every other other day whilst waiting for sales at Tesco and Boots to reduce their regular £18.99 asking price.
