Top marks to Oral B for a perfect toothbrush,
This review is from: Braun Oral-B PRO 2000 CrossAction 2-Mode Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love Oral B electric toothbrushes. Not the new-fangled sonic ones and not the ones with the large head, but these traditional small-head versions. They get into every nook and cranny! The beauty of this particular model is the two speed settings, the lower of which is supposedly for 'gum health'. I must confess to using it as more of a bedtime stealth mode, as the noise is far lower and it still appears to clean my teeth properly. So in the mornings I give them a blast, and at bedtime they have a lower volume brushing. The 'gum mode' is very good for going around the gum line after you've finished regular brushing. Obviously being lower powered, it is gentle on the gums.
As you would expect of a product designed and made in Germany, the build quality is above average. I'm a bit of a stickler for making sure that my electric toothbrush doesn't become covered in grime (and visiting friends' houses, I shudder when I see theirs), so after each use I detach the brush and thoroughly rinse it under the tap. Then I blow into the workings, roll up some toilet paper to squeeze inside and dry the brush attachment. This process (some may say 'rigmarole') takes me a couple of minutes each time but is well worth the effort.
Anyway, I digress. In my opinion there is no point going further up the Oral B range and nor is there much point in spending any less. This model is the sweet spot and the two different motor speeds are very useful. Highly recommended.
