4.0 out of 5 stars Great way to fight gingivitis, October 3, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My sister and her husband each have a Crest SpinBrush and kept telling me how great they are. I must say, I'm a believer now. I have lived with gingivitis for years. I brush every day, but my flossing habits aren't the best. Only having used this product for a week and I can already see a reduction in gum swelling. REALLY! ONE WEEK! I'm still amazed.

Yes, it's makes noise, but it's not deafening. It's not a loud as say a hair trimmer, so yes it's very tolerable. If you're worried about the noise being amplified by your jawbone inside your head, relax. When it's just the bristles against your teeth, there's no noise, but if the back of the brush head touches an opposing tooth, yup your head rings out, but that only happens once or twice to me when brushing.

The main thing that surprised me is it's very relaxing to brush my teeth now. I never timed my brush habits, but I think I'm taking longer. The drum of the motor and the feel of the moving bristles on my teeth is somewhat soothing. Maybe I'm just crazy, wouldn't be the first time.

The ONLY reason I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is because now that I've checked the replacement heads for the Crest are a little more expensive that for other competing models. Still worth it for better gum health though!

Update 10/23/09: OK I'm giving it 5 out of 5 stars. I just ordered/received the Amazon soft bristle replacements and the cost was for two 2 packs (that's 4 heads). That's a reasonable price. Also, the original alkalines still going strong!
