I am wanting to know about some of the electric toothbrushes and maybe studies done on them? I am interested in buying one and I see cons to buying what my dentist recomends compared to others. My dentist only seems to know about the Sonicare, but the heads are expensive. I have heard the Sensonic, and Oral-b 3D are good as well (which I think have cheaper heads)...but I also am wondering about the Cybersonic on the infomercial done with Robert Urich (That one has tongue cleaner,flosser, and free replacements heads)and seems to do the same thing but I don't want to get it if its not that effective. Also Is there differences in thsese electric toothbrushes to make one better?
I have the sonicare and I LOVE it! Yes, it was expensive, but I got two free heads in the mail because there was a form to fill out to receive them. I didn't do any research and just took the advise from my dentist to buy the sonicare.....good luck
I have used Sonicare and the Braun Oral-B, luckily I work in the dental field and got a discount. I personally like the Sonicare the best because it just seems to clean better. It uses ultrasonic waves to blast debri off teeth and while it doesn't replace flossing, can even help a little between teeth. The Oral-b is perfectly fine if cost is an issue. It uses a pulsating(in/out)motion coupled with a rotating motion and works well. Either way you will see a difference in how your mouth feels compared to using a manual brush. Another thing to consider, if you are extremely sensitive, the sonicare can be very "ticklish" until you get used to it. If money was no oblect, I would buy an sonicare. If you want a good affordable electric toothbrush, go with the oral-B.
There is a 'personal' model and a 'professional' model. My oral surgeon keeps trying to sell me on the professional model but I have no idea if it's just the box that's different or if its worth the extra $10 to go professional.
