      Leaves my teeth nice and clean

      I always prefer to use an electric toothbrush when it comes to brushing my teeth as I feel that they clean my teeth a lot better than using a standard toothbrush. About a year ago we decided to upgrade and this is the one that we picked.

      I picked mine up from Boots using my points and it cost me around £25. It is available from most supermarkets and chemists. For my money, not only did I get a toothbrush, but a charger which has a two pin plug and two replacement heads which when you consider that the heads alone would cost around £8, I think this is quite a good value toothbrush.
      The toothbrush has quite a fairly basic look and feel to it, it is predominantly white in colour with a strip a pale blue along the front. Halfway down the brush handle is a little button which turns the toothbrush on and off, this is really easy to operate single handed.

      When in use, the bristles oscilate really fast, which gives me a really good clean. After using, I can definitely tell that my teeth have been thoroughly cleaned; they have that smooth and clean feel to them. Using this over a period of time, I would say that using this has definitely improved the condition of my gums, when I use a standard toothbrush, I tend to suffer from sensitive gums which bleed quite easily however when I use this, they very rarely bleed. One feature I like about the toothbrush is that is times you for 2minutes, when the two minutes has been reached, the toothbrush makes a little noise and at 30second intervals, the speed of the brush slows down briefly to indicate to me that I need to change sides.

      The toothbrush takes around 24hours to charge and will then last around a week when being used at least twice a day. The charger is really compact and doesnt take up much room in my bathroom drawers, it measures around 6cm in diameter and once my toothbrush is placed on top, its quite secure. As I mentioned earlier, this only comes with a two pin plug, luckily in our bathroom we have a two pin socket but you can pick up a three pin adapter plug for just a couple of pounds.

      Whilst charging up, there is a little green light at the base of the toothbrush which lights up and flashes, once it has fully charges, the light goes out. This light will turn to red when the toothbrush is getting ready to be charged up again.

      I would definitely recommend this toothbrush and it gets 5 out of 5 stars from me.

      if you take care of it properly, it is the best for your smile

      My brother got this toothbrush before I did and he told me everyday that it was the best and that was why I should buy it as well. So I finally decided to buy it, it was around 7 pounds and it included some spare brushes to use when the one on its head gets old. It also included a double A battery, that so long as it is new or recently charged, the toothbrush will work fine and more actively.

      I really liked its functionality and the advantage of just letting the toothbrush to do its work on its own. I barely had to move my hand and I felt the cleaning very thorough, so it was like magic. It works pressing a rubbery button on the front and when you finish you just press it again in order to turn it off.

      The downside of this device was that if you do not rinse it with boiling water every at the end of every time you use it, it would start accumulating some fungus inside and its practically invisible until you have to replace the head. This is due to the humidity and the bacteria to which it is exposed when you brush your teeth.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      You will not be disappointed- this is a certainly a good purchase,

      You will really feel the difference compared to a manual brush, your teeth feels completely clean.

      It certainly gets to all the hard to reach areas and removes plaque with its "Criss cross" bristles.

      The thin handle has a soft rubber grip makes it comfortable to use and also you have more control of the brush-therefore no slipping and falling out of your hand even when wet.

      The brush heads are convenient and easily replaceable and available in both soft and medium brush, I use the medium one usually. The indicator bristles fade halfway when it's time for you to replace, so a good reminder!

      It is battery operated with an easy access waterproof battery compartment (1 x AA battery lasts surprising long). You will not be disappointed- this is a certainly a good purchase, I always feel like i am taking good care of my teeth when using this tooth brush.

    • Product Details

      Oral-B Crossaction Power combines a clinically proven rotating PowerHead with CrissCross bristles for more cleaning action in every stroke / Its CrissCross bristles reach deep between teeth and along the gumline to lift and sweep away plaque, while the rotating PowerHead effectively surrounds teeth to loosen and whisk away plaque from surfaces and hard-to-reach back teeth / The result is a deeper, more complete clean.
