Advantages: great at cleaning teeth
Disadvantages: the heads are alittle expensive
I brought the Colgate electric toothbrush back in March when I visited my dentist. Each time Ive been pregnant, I have had severe gingivitis, so bad that my gums had started bleeding and coming away from the teeth. My dentist told me that a lot of it was hormones, and advised me to get an electric toothbrush.
What a variety, but I settled on Colegate as my supermarket stocked the replacement heads for it. Its battery operated and easy to use, just which it on with a little toothpaste inside the mouth, his prevents the toothpaste flying everywhere. You can buy replacement heads at £5.49 for 2 in most supermarkets and Boots.
At first because the head is new, you get a little bleeding but as it softens up its subsides. Im one of these naughty but common people that only brush their teeth once a day , tut tut. Instead of brushing for at least 3 mins with a toothbrush I used to do 1 min and that was it. Now with the electric toothbrush I find I can brush my teeth really well in a couple of minutes.
Within a matter of weeks my teeth stopped bleeding so much and slowly come back to the teeth. I've come back from the dentist and I'm pleased to say that the bleeding and stopped and no more gingivitis. Yippee
This is a luxury product but I would recommend it if you value you teeth.
