Advantages: gets your teeth cleaner, kids like it!
Disadvantages: thsy keep forgetting to return it to the charger
I had long considered invsting in an electric toothbrush, feeling that it *had* to give a better brushing experience and result in cleaner teeth........funnily enough it was my *dentist* who said she thought it made no difference.....but having finally bought one on special offer in Tesco's, I would never want to go back to manual brushing!
The Braun Electric toothbrush is not particuarly expensive and is well worth the investment as you only need one and a pack of heads to do the whole family. My kids were raring to go with the new electric toothbrush when I got it, and it really seems to have made a difference as to how often and how well they brush. Let's face it, it's a lot less effort for them to learn to hold this thing against their teeth than to try and master correct brushing technique manually, and they seem to find it *fun*!
The toothbrush has a 2 minute timer, the idea being that you brush for the allotted length of time and know exactly when that has expired. You can carry on past the 2 mins should you want to as it pulses at this point rather than turning off. It's particularly good for the kids to monitor how long they are brushing for as 2 minutes can be difficult to accurately estimate.
The battery is apparently not affected by being constantly charged without being first properly discharged, which is an advantage, and despite kids leaving it lying in the bathroom without returning it to the holder/charger, it has never yet discharged.
The heads have some colouration which changes as they need replacing, and are compatible with other makes also, so I tend to buy if i see some on special offer.
The toothbrush leaves teeth noticeably cleaner than normal brushing and neither the kids nor I would ever want to go back to that after experiencing this.
Only disadvantage is that the kids and I have separate bathrooms and they are always forgetting to return the brush to the charger in mine - at least I know they'
ve been using it though!
