Braun Oral-B Vitality Sensitive Toothbrush
In the more recent years, my teeth have become very sensitive and have strated to bleed around the gums due to (according to the dentist) gum disease beginning. I was recommended by the dentist to get an electric toothbrush, and originally went for a cheaper option though found that it unfortunately did not clean the teeth as well as it probably should. It was then I was recommended this toothbrush from Braun by a friend who also suffers as I do with my teeth. I was astounded, though, when I went to my local Boots that the toothbrush was near to £20! I had never spent £20 on a toothbrush before, though I was determined to do something to stop my teeth and gums getting worse, so with a £10 voucher I had bee given for my birthday, I bought the brush, not feeling too bad as I only took another £10 out of my wallet!
The brush comes in white and pale blue plastic with rubber grips at each side. There is a small white button on the front to turn it off and on as well as a handy little extra which times you brushing your teeth and alerts you after two minutes of brushing. The first electric toothbrush I bought did not have this feature, which is one of the reasons for the extra price with this one I would assume, and although not necessary, it is quite handy! I do not think that I have ever brushed my teeth for the recommended time before, which is really bad, and this timer option has enabled me to get used to this time frame, which I hope helps my teeth and gums!
One thing in which my dentist informed me of at my last visit was that I had been brushing my teeth with my manual brush too hard, and therefore causing more damage to my teeth and gums. With this electric toothbrush, the round brush spins quite lightly so hard brushing is not possible.
I would recommend putting a minimum amount of toothpaste on the brush head as, due to the fast spin, the toothpaste bubbles up quite a bit in your mouth.
Obviously, you will need to change the toothbrush head every now and again. The brush comes complete with two more brush heads to keep you going for a while, and after that, replacement brush heads are around £3.00 to £4.00.
I have not had another visit to the dentist since purchasing this toothbrush so at this present time, I can not tell you if the brush has made any significant changes, though I do feel as though my mouth is 'softer' and my gums do tend to bleed less after just a few months of using this brush.
The initial price is a little excessive, and before I would not have thought about spending this amount on a brush, though I now think that it is well worth it. The brush works well, and although it is expensive, it is worth it to help your teeth and gums.
Summary: Well worth the initial purchase
