Disadvantages: lack of extras
The days of manual brushing are in the past are they not? I still have a regular manual toothbrush and also some electric ones which line up my bathroom cabinet. I seem to get bought an electric one every Christmas or two, so a small collection has formed. You can pay over one hundred pounds for a brush that rotates, talks to you, times the sessions, prepares you dinner etc, or you can get a decent brush at the lower end of the market that just cleans the teeth.
This was one of the brushes that I had some time ago and I am afraid he has been superseded now! The price tag of fifteen to twenty pounds id respectable enough. You get the basic toothbrush and a soft brush add-on which is useful because my gums are sensitive and prone to bleeding if I brush too hard.
The ergonomics of the toothbrush are pleasing. The varied shaped bristles have proved handy particularly on those harder to reach areas and I have found they work best on back teeth and round the gumline. The speed is pretty good too and whizzes round to deliver a dynamic clean. One of the best features here is the way the bristles have a fading indicator, so you know when to replace. I got a few months out of mine before it suggested I needed a new one, which was a pretty good longevity.
In terms of recharge time, you can get around four to five days of use before it needs a recharge, which can take a good twelve hours or more. This is one weaker spot, as some of my newer models last for over a week before they need a recharge. The other downside is there are no fancy add-on heads or toothpicks or timer. Despite this, the price reflects what you get and the overall package delivers a decent clean.
Summary: good value brush
