Oral-B Vitality Precision Clean
Advantages: Works very well, 2 minute timer, easy to access all areas of oral health
Disadvantages: Stopped working after a few months, and same thing happened after replacement
I've totally got a thing for oral hygiene, ever since I was a little girl when we were to eating sweets would rot your teeth I've been obsessed with ensuring that my teeth and gums are squeaky clean! I used a manual brush for years until my lovely boyfriend treated me to this Oral B Vitality Precision electric tooth brush that I was so excited about I literally used it 5 minutes after getting it!
The packaging and its contents were very minimal, the toothbrush itself is an easy to hold and comfortable handle with an easily accessible button which controls the power of the toothbrush. The toothbrush head is very easy to remove and replace yet stays in place when in use. The charger is very small and compact which I was happy about as its easy to store, although I had to use a converter plug when charging my toothbrush as I don't have any plugs in the house that would fit it! The toothbrush itself is attractive and fits in well with the other products and appliances in my bathroom, although the handle is quite bulky and can be a bit of a squeeze sitting with other toothbrushes!
Using the toothbrush itself was a great experience, the toothbrush head moves in circular motions and is very quick, reassuring me that plaque and all the other nasties were having their butts kicked by my ultimate new toothbrush. I have had problems before with brushing the back of my front bottom teeth but this toothbrush created ease with reaching all areas of my teeth as the toothbrush head is small enough to access the hard to reach areas. The motioning of the toothbrush is harsh enough to properly clean teeth but soft enough to protect teeth and prevent chipping, also I thought I'd add that I was prone to gum bleeding through manual brushing but rarely experienced this with my oral b toothbrush. The toothbrush also has a very handy tool installed that times you brushing your teeth and vibrates after 2 minutes to alert you, ensuring that you are using the correct amount of time to brush your teeth properly.
Now for the tricky part.. My toothbrush has stopped working, twice. The first time when the battery ran out, like procedure I plugged in my toothbrush for charging and left it for a few hours to find it wasn't charging atall and the toothbrush was completely dead. I tried changing adapters, toothbrush heads and even cleaning it but this toothbrush just would not turn on. So after many desperate attempts to revive my beloved toothbrush I reluctantly sent away to Braun for a replacement which I received promptly. My new toothbrush worked fine for a month or so and the EXACT same thing happened again. As my toothbrush began to run out of power I popped it on charge and returned to find it completely dead without any hint of power. I'm incredibly frustrated as I have to send away for another replacement and I have no idea why it has stopped working in the first place.
I'm not sure if I would recommend this product. Although it is a very good toothbrush, I would rather have one that lasts a little longer than a month. The customer service of Braun is impressive, I received reply emails promptly and I received a replacement soon after but it's incredibly frustrating receiving a product that you know isn't going to last very long.
Summary: A good toothbrush that certainly isn't for life (or a few months)
