Best Electric Toothbrush Review
My dentist said I needed a new electric toothbrush at my last visit so I bought the Oral-B 7000. I had been using the old one (non-rotation spinning bristles) for probably a little over a year. Unfortunately, I still had problems with my teeth and they weren’t as white as I wanted them to be, even with whitening strips. I bought the Oral-B 7000 because it was the first brush recommended to me.
It comes with multiple different brushes which is really useful. I hate having to order new ones, especially if I have to figure out what type of brand they are when purchasing the right kind. This came with 3 brushes and a little travel case so that I can easily pack it up when traveling for work.
As for the actual cleaning, this is the best electric toothbrush I’ve ever had. The brushes are angled so that I can get to places that are a little out of my reach. The 3D rotator also helps because I don’t have to work hard at getting any residual plaque off my teeth.
I definitely don’t have to work hard at having clean teeth. This is a powerful toothbrush and I don’t need to exert any extra pressure to get hidden gunk out of my teeth or mouth. I wouldn’t say that I’m a lazy brusher, but I definitely don’t have to worry about it since I’m using this toothbrush now.
The whitening mode really works. I’ve tried the strips that you paste onto your teeth, but not only do they not work, but they often irritate my gums and weaken my teeth. Using the whitening mode on this toothbrush can naturally make teeth brighter without wearing at the enamel. If you’ve had braces or your teeth are slightly worn, brushing for whiteness is a way better option than trying to bleach teeth.
The replacement heads are different. I never realized you could have different brush attachments. The brush attachments that come with the electric toothbrush include a 3D White brush head, a CrossAction brush head and a Sensitive brush head. The sensitive one is especially good if your gums bruise or bleed easily, but there is also a “gum care” mode on the actual toothbrush. The sensitive brush combined with the gum care mode is perfect if you’ve ever had gingivitis or any other kind of gum disease. I use this combination the most.
It’s rechargeable. This should go without saying, but I am always surprised at how many electronic devices still require batteries or short-lived charging stations that easily break. Luckily, this charger is extremely easy to use and it lasts. I didn’t have to buy the charger separately either – there’s one already included in the pack. At some point, if I do have to buy another charger, they are relatively inexpensive and can be bought anywhere.
I wish there were two travel cases. It feels like they could include one more. Most people lose stuff like this and it wouldn’t be too difficult to provide a back-up. I left my one travel case at a hotel several weeks ago and now need to find another one.
The Bluetooth that is enabled with this brush tracks your habits over time which is great, but I don’t need helpful oral care tips. I already know the right pressure and speed I’m supposed to use. Brushing too hard was never my problem though.
Which is the best electric toothbrush on the market?
For the best information on teeth care, I generally research specific people and places. To buy the right kind of toothbrush for whitening and overall oral-care, I shop around for the best.
