It turns out my regular tooth brush (you know, the kind the dentist gives out for free after he tortures you with your regular teeth cleaning) was not adequate for my needs. You can probably chalk it up to "user error".... I wasn't brushing properly, nor long enough to really keep a clean mouth.
I did a bunch of research on electric toothbrushes to see what the fuss was about. Turns out a circular motion cleans a greater surface area of the tooth more completely. hmmm... more research led me to this model - the motorized head rotates in the recommended pattern and the handle buzzes/vibrates in 30 or 45 second intervals to help you judge the brushing time of each section of your mouth. Recommended time is 30 seconds per quadrant. But to be honest, the buzzy feature wasn't enough for me. What really sold me on this model was the digital display that counts down (or counts up) the amount of time you have been brushing. If you look at the picture of the box, you can see the digital display, it's a little bit bigger than a business card, and about an inch thick. As you are brushing, the display will track the quadrant you are brushing, and when your brush handle buzzes, the digital display will move to the next quadrant - giving you a visual que to move on to the next section of your mouth. It will even tell you if you're brushing too hard! When you have completed brushing for a full two minutes (30 seconds per quadrant), the digital display will show a smiley face - and if you brush for another 30 seconds...Read more ›
I purchased one like this from seller; Alexa's store on Amazon. I was planning to give it to my wife for a Christmas gift,But item was received with the bottom of the box pried open and taped loosely closed with two sided tape,And the contents sound loose inside box.
I could not give it as a new Christmas gift,No one would give a pre-opened oral hygiene product,it may be tampered with or unsafe.
Seller refuses to accept return, And does not respond courteously as expected from Amazon or it's sellers.
I assume these are good products,Be sure to purchase direct from Amazon not site sellers. Amazon cares about their buyers.
A simular model Oral-B was purchased a couple of days before Christmas and my wife is 100% satisfied with this product.
In all it seems everyone is satisfied with this product. Be sure to purchase from a trusted place.
Ok now for the research details:
1. It is lighter than most electric brushes out there
2. It HAS A TIMER! This is probably among the top 3 reasons I bought this!
3. Up to 4 people can use it. Since you can change the bristle tip (color rings identify it to the person)
4. Its battery lasts for all of us to brush at night
5. The timer sends a signal to the toothbrush (its vibration changes for a second) to let you know it's time to brush on another side.
6. It massages your gums and prevents you from brushing HARD!
7. It is durable! (This is crucial since more than one person uses it in my house hold)
8. You can buy the bristle head that is best for you
9. It's not that expensive compared to Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus HX6972/10 (their best one)

I use the floss action brush heads, and my teeth feel so nice and clean after I brush. They feel as clean as when I just get back from the dentist. I could never get my teeth this clean with a normal toothbrush.
I also use the sensitive head on my son occassionally. I am always afraid he isn't brushing his teeth well enough, and with this, I worry less, and he really likes it.
The brush heads have the fading colors like other toothbrushes that tell you it's time for a new brush head. The replacement heads aren't exactly cheap (usually a little over $20 for three of the floss action), but I feel it is well worth the investment to have such a nice toothbrush and the great clean feeling it leaves after brushing. They last a long time, and I have definitely have $20 on much less worthy things!
The toothbrush is very easy to use. Put your brush head on, push the button, and go. Charging is easy, too. It sits on the charger, you don't have to plug the actual brush handle into anything.
The timer is a very nice addition. It communicates with the brush and comes set to make it do a special vibration pattern every 30 seconds as a cue to move on to another quadrant of your mouth, and another final vibration after the 2 minute time. I can be several rooms away and they can still communicate.Read more ›
