Oral-B Vitality Sonic
Advantages: stain reduction, timer
Disadvantages: Charge time, recharge frequency
I bought the Oral B Vitality Sonic on the recommendation of my dental hygienist. Actually she recommended that I buy the expensive £100 model they were selling in their shop, but instead I did a little shopping around and tracked down this one. At less than £20, and with a good track record with other Oral B products I thought I'd give it a whirl.
In terms of toothbrushing, it's a great little machine. The toothbrush comes on a recharging stand and is used wirelessly. It takes a long time to complete its first charge, about 16 hours, so make sure you charge it early before you want to use it. For recharges, you need to allow about 12 hours so I'd usually start the charge after my morning brush and turn it off before my evening brush. The charge lasts around a week.
The brush uses 'sonic' technology to aid the clean. I'm no scientist, so I don't know exactly how this works, but it adds a little vibration to the brushing to help remove stains. I'm a tea and red wine drinker, and after I've been to the hygienist I usually get gradual staining on my teeth due to this. I have found, however, that using the sonic toothbrush helps to reduce the staining between visits. The toothbrush also comes with a timer facility so that you brush your teeth for the right amout of time. After two minutes the toothbrush buzzes differently, so you know you've brushed long enough. I found this feature really useful as I no longer have to guess how long to brush for.
The toothbrush heads are nice and long, more the size of a standard toothbrush head which is unusual for an electric brush. Replacement heads aren't cheap, but they never are for electric brushes, a 2 pack replacement can be around £8, but if you shop around on the internet you can get them cheaper.
I've been very satisfied with this brush.
Summary: A great, reasonably priced brush
