Good gentle electric toothbrush: efficient & fun to use!,
This review is from: Braun Oral-B Professional Care 500 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush with Precision Clean Brush Head (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)This is a good electric toothbrush & it does a good job. It has made my toothbrushing routine fun & organised. I used to dread brushing my teeth, but now I look forwards to it as I don't have to think about if I have brushed enough, have applied too little/too much pressure, AND I know I have brushed all parts of my teeth!
I really like that:
*it has a 4 point cleaning reminders that every 30 seconds it does a little stutter to clean the 4 quarters of your mouth (ie. does a little stutter every 30 seconds to remind you to move on to another section) & a double stutter at the end of the 2 minute recommnded cleaning time.
Also, the timer memorises the elapsed brushing time, so even if the brush is turned off briefly. Unless if the brush is turned off for more than 30 seconds, whence it'll reset itself.
*it is gentle & does not feel like you're brushing your teeth too harshly.
*cleans very well with minimum effort (very good for me as I hate brushing my teeth!
This product is supposed to have a "pressure sensor" which protects your teeth & gum from excessive brushing, so if you apply too much pressure, the oscillating movement will continue but the pulsation will stop. I couldn't "sense" this system working even after trying too much pressure on purpose. It just carried on as before but it just felt like the brushing is restricted.
It says that initially charge this product for minimum 12 hours & the charger's green flashing light will continue flashing until fully charged. Well, mine hasn't stopped flashing even though I have been chraging it for over 24 hours.
In fact, it just flashes all the time. I donot know if this is due to my electric shaver's charging unit which is old.
Overall, a good electric toothbrush.
+ it's fairly good value also as it's half the RRP at Amazon at the moment.
