    Phillips Sonicare Toothbrush

    Post  Horseballs on Tue Dec 18, 2012 5:46 pm

    Pros:
    Ergonomic handle
    Easy to reach molars
    Excellent, thorough cleaning
    Ensures a 2 minute toothbrushing (which is pretty fucking long if you haven't timed it before)
    Never had a cavity while using this brush (7 years)

    Cons:
    Batteries lose ability to keep a charge after a couple years
    Replacement heads (every 6 weeks or so) are expensive
    Disgusting when you unscrew the brush to replace the head

    Overall Grade
    A-

    Where did you buy it and how much does it cost? I've been considering one of these. I've also considered the type that are battery operated and disposable. From what I understand, they clean your teeth much better than using a manual toothbrush.

    The wife got it for me, but I think I've seen them at Walgreens. I think they are around $60, and the heads are about $12-$15. I may be totally off on both of those numbers. The heads can last a few months.
    They are night and day better than manual tootbrushes. The first few times you use it, you'll think you're going to rattle the teeth out of your mouth, but the results are spectacular.

    If anybody from West Virginia leaves a review for the toothbrush you might want to take it with a grain of salt.

    I've been using a Sonicare for I'd guess around 10 years because my dental hygienist sister nagged me into it. Ever since , every time I go to the dentist they give me a gold star. In fact I just had my teeth cleaned today. The girls there love me and vice versa. We chat for a long time before they get their ass in gear.
