Oral-B Professional Care 6000
Advantages: easy to use, cheap to purchase now, good cleaning action and well built
Disadvantages: difficult to clean, needs recharging more often than it states, costly brushes
I've owned this toothbrush for around 12 months now...It's still working which is a good sign as I do use it twice a day every day...
It's a good size and isn't too thin or thick to hold. As it has rounded edges this makes it comfortable to hold too.
The toothbrush itself has a 2 minute timer on it which means that after two minutes it will pulse so you know the 2 minutes is up. It's amazing how long two minutes actually is so I'm sure I wasn't brushing for two minutes before!
It does have the 3D cleaning technology which means that it removes twice as much plaque as an ordinary toothbrush. I can confirm that this does appear to be the case too from what I can see and also feel across my teeth.
It will also stop brushing if you apply too much pressure to your teeth... I've not actually tried this and its never happened to me so I can't comment on this feature but definitely one of use if you are particularly heavy handed.
It is a well built piece of kit and does make a good job of cleaning my teeth with very little effort other than to pick it up and press the button.
However, there are some downsides to the brush.. it is supposed to keep its charge for 7 days...however after about 3-4 days I have to recharge it. When I bought the brush as well it only had a shaving plug so I had to buy an adaptor so I could plug it into the mains.
The other irritating thing is how dirty it gets in the cracks and crevices and the build up of toothpaste around the base of the brush... now this could be that I'm incredibly messy but I don't believe I am and I do rinse the brush after I've cleaned my teeth after each use...
The final thing is the cost of replacement brushes (heads). They can cost around £7 for 3 heads. The cost of the toothbrush itself is around £19.00 now (as its been replaced by a newer whizzier model!) so it does put into perspective how costly the brushes are in comparison..
Summary: I'll just keep it until it stops working! I would buy another Braun though..
