Electric toothbrushes

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Does anyone use an electric toothbrush? If so what brand/model.
I had a Sonic care that lasted 2 years & I haven't replaced it yet. Some dentists recommend oral-b over sonic care. I just don't know what models are the best. Any recommendations?

I've used Oral B for YEARS and I will never use anything else - I even got a battery operated portable one for traveling.

That's too funny that you all use the same one.
Can two people use it by switching the brushes with ease?
I had a battery Sonic one but the thing broke in 2 uses. The water ruined the battery compartment.

I have a Sonicare that I've had for years and years. I absolutely love it. When I bought it electric toothbrushes were still "novelty" and I paid something close to $200.00 for mine. The prices have come down considerably since then.

One thing to keep in mind with electric toothbrushes, is that you still have to brush your teeth properly to prevent gum diseaase and that if you don't, you can do much more damage to your teeth and gums with an electric toothbrush, so learn the proper techque to brushing before you go and invest in an electric toothbrush.

Also an electric toothbrush does not take away the need to floss your teeth.

And it's bad to brush your teeth for hours at a time like "Matthew McCounahey" does. Apparently he uses his Sonicare toothbrush and brushes his teeth up to 8 times per day for 20 and 40 minutes at a time. Sure he might have clean teeth, but over time like water on rocks, he is going to be wearing his teeth down and causing them more damage than good.

I am not as crazy has him but I do brush 3-4 times a day or more. The hygienists recommended the ones that turn off if you press to hard (which is me). I didn't have coffee stains when I used the electric. The hygienists said my stains are minimal but I still hate having any. I find the electric reaches the back molars with ease. Now there are so many choices out there.
