In the TriZone...,
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although I've tried a couple of sonic toothbrushes they just don't agree with me (the demented wasp buzzing drives me crazy) and I keep switching back to the mechanical oscillating versions like this one - they also seem to do a better job for me. This model has basically the same handset as my previous model, the Braun Oral-B Pro Care 2000 Toothbrush, with good speed and a solid build. There's supposed to be a pressure sensor that stops the brush if you press too hard but there isn't or it doesn't work in mine - this feature stopped working in my previous brush too although I never missed it. My only real complaint is the amount of time it takes to recharge the battery, a full charge from zero takes longer than overnight, therefore it's probably best stored on the charging stand all the time so that's it's always ready to use at full speed.
When I first saw the TriZone brushes I thought they looked a bit of a gimmick but I was wrong, it turns out they're excellent and I don't think any toothbrush ever got my teeth feeling cleaner than this does. They have a less forceful or invasive action than standard oscillating brush-heads and feel a lot more like a manual toothbrush - in fact Oral-B recommend you move them around much like you'd use a manual brush. This comfortable action means you're probably more likely to use them for the full recommended two minutes and it should also mean they'd be ideal for anyone trying their first electric toothbrush. Note that the TriZone brush-heads should work with existing Oral-B toothbrushes too (except the Sonic ones) so you don't have to buy a compete new unit. Beware, a working Trizone brush held under running water or covered in toothpaste sprays surprisingly powerful jets out of both sides - it's impressive to watch but quite annoying to clean up after!
The included case is also really welcome, even if you're not planning a trip it's still an hygienic way to store your brush together with two of its brush-heads - note that the case can also hold the round Braun Oral-B Precision Clean Toothbrush Heads. There's nothing gimmicky about the Oral-B 600, it's just a quality tried-and-tested toothbrush with an excellent new TriZone brush-head - shame you only get one head though!
