I just love these toothbrushes. First bought one for myself, then my 6 year old and today I'm buying one for my mom. Great value. I had never used an electric toothbrush before because they were so expensive. I bought this one because of the great reviews and price. I thought it would be a good way to "test the waters" in terms of electric toothbrushes before I spent money on the really expensive ones. I'm not sure I'll ever need to buy those other kinds, though, because this one is excellent. I feel like I just came from the dentist every time I brush my teeth.
