The best size, 'printer ink' pricing!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips Sonicare HX6024/26 Pro Results Brush Heads Mini Pack of 4 (Personal Care)
I haven't surveyed the entire professional dentistry community, but every dentist and hygienist I have asked (total 4) confirms my observation that it's these compact heads that do the best job with the Sonicare base unit. They are much easier to manoeuvre around the mouth and over each tooth than the larger ones, and you can winkle them round the back of the wisdom teeth more easily as well. I have tried the standard size/standard hardness ones and, recently, the standard size 'sensitive' ones - but I find them impossible to position with precision. (Try saying that three times quickly.) I pretty much *have* to buy these mini heads for the above reasons - but the prices! Man! They're something like *twice* the price of the standard heads. Why? It all smacks of the excesses of the printer ink industry, which makes the big bucks from expensive branded consumables. There's an opportunity here for someone to create a *good* non-branded alternative at a third the price, but I bet we'll never see it. End of rant. 5 stars for the product, 1 off for the pricing.
