Your toothbrush??

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I just bought an electric toothbursh which is on sale by Philips.
I was wondering if it is any better than the normal toothbrushes.
My orthodontist told me it was better for my braces, now my teeth feel alot smoother after trying it out.

But i want your opinion.

I have been using electric toothbrushes for several years and I like them much better. But when I travel I carry a spare normal one in case the bettery runs down or hte charger won't work.

I've never used an electronic toothbrush, though I always wanted one when I was younger. I'd say that if your orthodontist told you it was better, he's probably right.

I used an electric one when I was younger but I always had the problem of just brushing normally with it, and I'm not sure you're really supposed to do that hahaha So I just use the normal El Cheapo ones without any frills hehe

I didn't answer the poll, as I use both. I often use the electric one at night but a normal one when I brush after other meals. Though I like the results of the electric one better, I hate the mess it makes. I have a small mouth and can't move that brush around where it needs to go and still keep my mouth totally shut, so it makes a mess all over the basin, the counter, the mirror. And I hate housecleaning! Once a day is enough!

I use a normal toothbrush. I think it's funny how much they have "advanced" over the years though; even the normal ones. We have all these toothbrushes with super rubberized non-slip and ergonomically enchanced grips. What happened?... were people dropping toothbrushes left and right without these advancements? Were toothbrushes flying out of peoples hands because they couldn't hold onto them? Why don't they make grips like this on a high performance motorcycle or a hang glider or something? Obviously, companies were just trying to keep toothbrushes interesting so we would buy more. It works.

Sadly, it definitely works! Everytime I'm in need of a toothbrush I find myself saying, "But this one that's a whole dollar more is pink and it's so much prettier than that one!" I always leave the store mocking myself for being such a loser! It's ONLY a toothbrush for heaven's sake! Who cares if it matches the bathroom!!!

Yeah. I wish the tape job on my $400 bats were that nice!

My toothbrush is a Crest Spinbrush, so I said it's electric, even if it's not that high tech. Sadly, I do not use the Spinbrush action; every time I turned it on, toothpast would shoot out of my mouth as I was brushing, getting white marks all over my clothes . So I have this big, bulky battery-operated toothbrush and I don't even take advantage of it's special features. Harumph!

Electric toothbrush here. I notice I have fewer cavities and it cost less when I go to the dentist for a cleaning. No more deep cleanings! I really think they work great!

I've only ever used a regular toothbrush. I have wondered if the electric ones are better and worth the money. Anyone see the "NEW" brush that also cleans your tongue? Guess this model will improve everyone's smelly breath too?

Maybe it was carpal tunnel syndrome from the repetitive tooth brushing!

I put electric. I have the Oral B battery-operated one. I don't know if it makes a big difference medically, but my teeth feel a lot cleaner to nme than with a regular one. I love it so much, I bought an extra one to travel with and keep spare batteries in my travel kit. (I travel a lot.)

I've tried electric toothbrushes but they tickle my gums and lips I've never been able to use one. I do buy fancy normal ones, though. I'm a sucker for flashy packaging and bright colors .

I still like the old fashioned style- the new ones are so big, they won't fit in the toothbrush holder!! Not to mention they look like torture devices to anyone with sensitive teeth!
Just a normal straight brush & a Waterpic & I'm happy.

I use an electric one and apparently so does Don as it sometimes has grey kitty hairs on it and he has very clean teeth

I have a "normal" toothbrush, because the electric ones don't get into some of the creveses of my teeth properly. Ideally, I think I'd use both, but that'd just be annoying. My toothbrush is a childs toothbrush, because my mouth is too small for grownup ones. Currently I have a yellow one with a sparkily garfeild on the front and purple grips. I think my recent favourite has been my wonderwoman one though.
