Great toothbrushing experience - really got me into brushing correctly and regularly
4 May 2018
I bought two of these (one for my partner and one for me). I used to use Sony DiamondClean toothbrushes but despite spending lots of money on those they quickly died on me. I decided to opt for an oral-b toothbrush since they seemed more solid.
I didn't want a toothbrush with tons of weird features that are totally unnecessary like the oral b genius toothbrushes. I wanted something that would do the job, had a bit of the fancy features, and that lasted. My partner and I use our respective apps with the toothbrush (him more than me), and we have programmed our toothbrushes for the "whitening" mode since we are using whitening toothpaste. It also reminds you to floss and use mouthwash everyday, which is nice since I rarely did those things before.
My partner and I used to be a bit bad at regularly brushing twice a day. We'd do it once a day everyday but often we'd be too tired in the evenings. The app has a calendar in it that tracks your brushing days. We have been 100% ever since. It also has a small timer which lets you visualize when you need to change the row of teeth you are brushing. 2 minutes used to go buy really slowly but nowadays it goes by quite fast. The app is a bit silly and hard to set up at first (specially with 2 toothbrushes, it accidentally synced to my partner's toothbrush at first). Once it is set up though, you're golden. The toothbrush has an internal memory so that even if you don't brush with the app on, the next time you turn on the app, it will sync all your previous sessions.
The app also has little badges of honour (ie. if you brushed in foreign countries, if you brushed regularly etc). Gimmicky but fun. Also: the toothbrush comes with 3 heads and a carry case. Very useful when travelling.
The only downside to this toothbrush is that it sounds like a chainsaw. I was used to Sony's quiet vibrating toothbrushes. These do not sound like that. They are loud.
