5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent combination of cleansing and comfort, 21 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Oral-B Pro 600 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush with Travel Case - Limited Pink Edition (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although I have had an electric toothbrush for several years my dental hygenist recommended that I upgrade to a newer one so that I could benefit from a timer to make sure I brushed my teeth for long enough. The timer operates by making the motor "stutters" for a couple of seconds every half minute. The first time it did it I thought the brush was faulty until I realised what was going on and now I've had it a few days I think its a good system.

I like the small brush-heads on Oral-B toothbrushes. Apart from the way you can get them around the corners at the back of your gums, they actually use less toothpaste. Some of the brushes from toothpaste manufacturers have much bigger brush-heads and I wonder if this is so you use more toothpaste? Over the lifetime of a brush the saving on toothpaste must be considerable!

The brush-heads are expensive, but as they last three months I'm not all that bothered. Reviews suggest that replacement heads from other manufacturers are not as good as the Oral-B ones.

The toothbrush is more powerful than my previous Oral-B toothbrush but I don't feel it is going to do any damage to my fillings despite my initial fears!

It does take a long time to charge up and its best to start it after you brush your teeth in the morning as an overnight charge won't be long enough. I don't understand why it takes so long as my electric razor which surely uses more power takes only an hour or so to charge up and lasts me for a month between charges.

However its a very good toothbrush and I'm happy to give it top marks on this review.

It takes longer to charge up because it uses "inductive coupling" between the base and the toothbrush to transfer across the energy, rather than real wires. This means that it can be easily waterproofed but it would cost more money to make a charging system of equivalent power to the one in your shaver.
