Fantastic, I'll never go back to manual,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Braun Oral-B Professional Care 1000 One-Mode Rechargeable Toothbrush (Packaging Varies) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Personal Care)
In short the brush is fantastic, the key points being:
- Simplicity to use and charge
- Fantastic battery life (mine lasts a week or more of twice-a-day use)
- Rotating head for a lovely dentist-clean feeling
- Interchangeable heads
- Vibrations to tell you when to change quadrant / end brushing.
After using manual toothbrushes all my life, I decided to upgrade to an electric toothbrush after my dentist kept pointing out that my back molars weren't quite as clean as they could be. This problem I always found with manual toothbrushes is that they always seemed a little too fat to comfortably clean my back wisdom teeth - no more with this brush!
This toothbrush is much cheaper than a lot of the fancier models and has even lowered in price since I purchased it. Yes, it doesn't have all the bells and whistles as the more expensive models (e.g. LCD timer, travel case etc.), but I seriously think these are gimmicks rather than necessities. The brush vibrates at 30 second intervals to indicate the need to change the quadrant of your mouth, and once the 2-minute cycle has finished it vibrates four times in short succession. This allows you to ensure a good, equal clean across the recommended 2-minute duration. The vibrations are subtle too, so they don't shake your head off. If you press too hard on your teeth, a right light illuminates on the back of the brush which is a handy feature.
Overall this is great brush which is plenty adequate for daily use, cheaper than the more gimmicky brushes and provides an excellent clean. I'd also recommend this over the vibrating-head types of brushes as I feel it provides a better clean, but that is a personal choice.
