Very good at cleaning your teeth...
on June 13, 2013
This Oral-B electric toothbrush does an excellent job cleaning one's teeth. They say it oscillates and pulsates something like a zillion times a minute, which it may well do, though the user can't tell. Some reviews say that it is "too big" for the mouth, but I don't get that comment, as the removable brush is the same as for other Oral-B elec. toothbrushes, no matter how wide the handle is, and that is what goes into your mouth. Having said that, I would add that I would prefer a more slender handle. Guess it's that big so that batteries will fit into it. That means the travel case is quite large, too. Putting it in a plastic bag instead would save room in your carry-on. The recharging dock separates from the extra-brush holder and is quite small, thus easy to pack along with the brush, so you wouldn't have to worry about batteries unless you are traveling where you can't plug it in (other countries?). I think that it is NOT the same model that the leaflet that came with it describes, as it does not beep to signal when you are supposed to change quadrants in your mouth. Instead it stops for a moment and then starts right up again. Maybe that is better than being beeped at, but I would prefer having instructions that apply to the appliance I received. Box not the original, but rather an Amazon special, so no picture on it to check the model.
